Epson Perfection V550 Flatbed Scanner Review

 

Stephen Waller reviews the Epson Perfection V550, the flatbed scanner capable of scanning 35mm and 120mm film.

High resolution scans ; Effective dust removal ; Software supports multiple file formats ; Histogram compensation adjustment ; Batch scanning up to 12 images

Slow capture times ; Auto exposure not effective with all negative types

It is very capable at scanning slide and film and compares favourably with stand alone models though possibly not quite as sharp pixel for pixel. There is a lot of built in flexibility that does make it possible to attain pleasing results. I would...

Great Low Cost Photo Scanner

 

I haven't had this scanner long but I have scanned over 500 photos since I received it. The automatic picture detection is hit or miss and sometimes detects multiple photos correctly and other times it needs to be done manually, but is easy to do in...

Fast start up and scanning. Works well with slides, negatives and film. Allows scanning of multiple photos at one time creating a separate file for each. Optical resolution up to 6400 dpi. Automatic color restoration and dust elimination work OK for...

Took 6 days for my 3 day shipping. I don't think it was actually in stock yet. Price dropped after I purchased it. Front panel buttons don't work but that is probably because I installed just the basic scanning software and drivers from the Epson...

Epson Perfection V550 scanner woes

 

" I have just set up a Epson Perfection V550 scanner following the 4 step instructions provided. Already having issues. The scanner can be driven by the computer but the scanner will not talk to the computer. Its too bad. If a few more instructions...

Not a good start

 

" So you go through the set-up procedure. At Step Four you press the "Scan" button and nothing happens. It looks very much like the power cord, the step-down transformer and its output cord are not supplying electric power to the scanner. Another...

Great scanner

 

" I have had two versions of this scanner... On of them I purchased nearly a decade ago... Well, it never broke I misplaced it. So, I bought this newer, faster model a few weeks ago and was delighted! Since then, I have found the old one! So I gave it...

Great Scanner

 

" I was looking for a scanner to scan old slides and photos from my mom and dads attic into my computer. This one does the job and more. Very simple to use. I am a novice at things like this and I was posting old slides on facebook in no time. I highly...

DOING THE JOB EASILY

 

" This is my first single purpose scanner and this 550 seems to do it as promised. Although the many basic features are easy to use, there are still some I am trying to figure out. I love the fact it does 3 to 4 photos at once. I am scanning mostly 70...

Epson V550 Scanner

 

" I was looking forward to using this product to scan many old slides. I was able to scan the slides...4 at a time, but I found the process of editing and saving as a single item was very time consuming and not easy to accomplish. As a photo scanner,...
