Epson Perfection V850 Pro

 

The Epson Perfection V850 Pro photo scanner offers professional-quality scanning for photographic prints and for film (positive or negative) at up to 8 by 10 inches.

High-quality scans for photographic prints and film (including slides). Color-calibration target and software included.

Color-calibration software is frustratingly hard to use.

If you want top-tier scan quality, and either aren't concerned about color calibration or plan to get a program like SilverFast Ai Studio 8 that offers its own color calibration, be sure to take a close look at the Editors' Choice Epson V800. It...

Epson Perfection V850 Pro

 

The Photo Scanner category has not been included in the TIPA Awards selections for many years, but the introduction of the Epson Perfection V850 Pro inspired members to bring it back. The V850 Pro allows for scanning of all film sizes up to 4x5 inches...

Fabulous scanner

 

I first checked this scanner out at the PDN Expo in NYC last fall. The Epson rep told me it would only do batch scanning with Epson Scan, not with Silverfast. Because of that, I delayed the purchase. I was already using Silverfast Ai Studio with a...

Versatility; software (Silverfast); double set of film frames; accuracy; great batch scanning capabilities

Bundled Silverfast is the SE Plus version; for a high-end scanner, it should be at least the Ai Studio version. That said, if you buy it from Newegg you save enough on price to make up the difference for buying the Ai Studio upgrade ; Also, Epson reps...

Terrific scanner; Silverfast, not so much

 

" This is an excellent scanner, and I'd recommend it to anyone. Does an excellent job of positives, negatives, and slides. The downside is Silverfast; I've never been able to get it to work. However, the Epson scanning software works well enough that...
