Epson Perfection V300 Photo

 

The $100 Epson Perfection V300 Photo is a worthy candidate if you're looking for an affordable flatbed scanner. This 48-bit, 4800-dpi, USB scanner is easy to install and use, and it's capable of producing good-looking scans from a variety of originals,...

Excellent image quality ; Scans both photos and film

Epson Perfection V300 Photo

 

You won't find many differences in basics between the V300 and 5600F, but the few that exist are in the V300's favor. Both offer 4,800-pixel-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution; both have transparency scanning limits of only four slides or one six-frame...

Scores well on quality and ease of use for scanning both photographic prints and transparencies (slides and strips of film)

Scans only four slides or one six-frame strip of film at a time

The Epson Perfection V300 Photo scanner scans both prints and transparencies (slides and strips of film) surprisingly well, and even comes with an optical character recognition program.
