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...

Replacing old scanner

 

Very good performance and matches that of a Canoscan that is no longer supported after Windows XP. Only downside is that there is no holder for medium format slides/transparencies.

Longtime Epson Fan

 

Never mind that some Epson products are made in Oregon. I would still be a big fan even if they were not. This scanner replaces an Epson Perfection 2400 that will be used and loved by one of our children. The only "Nit" that I have to pick is that it...

Good Scanner!

 

I bought this scanner a little over a month ago and I am still on a learning curve with it. Installation of software was a breeze as well as setting up the scanner. In the space between purchase and now, I have scanned over 2,000 images (!). This...

Excellent Product

 

Scanned over 4000 transparencies over a 3 week period to archive family history. All the modes performed as expected. Have not tried any 35mm negatives as of yet. I need a break. Overall I am very pleased with the results.
