Epson Perfection V600 Photo

 

You can usually count on Epson scanners to deliver better than average bang for the buck. The Epson Perfection V600 Photo ($249.99 direct, covered by a standard 1-year parts and labor warranty) is no exception.

High-quality scans. Fully automatic mode for easy scanning. Scans both 35mm and medium-format film

Scans only four 35mm slides at a time. Weak on office tasks

The Epson Perfection V600 Photo offers high-quality scans for prints and both 35mm and medium-format film, plus an exceptionally easy-to-use scan utility.

Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner -- Scanning For Fun

 

We didn't really expect to spend as much time with the V600 as we did. Let that be a lesson to you if you're planning to scan your film collection. The software can turn what seems like a straightforward task into a frustrating experience. You know you...

Review: Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner

 

Answers the need for professional scanning at reasonable price.

Nice build quality ; Easy to set up ; Automated front buttons ; OCR and photo editing software included ; Can use any scanning software

EPSON Scan does not yield the best scans ; Must spend money on better scan software for best results

I developed an interest in our family's photo history a few years back, so while my sister works in Ancestry and Geni.com to put the jigsaw puzzle of our family together, I supply the photos, when available. Now, this is no easy task, because no on

Epson Perfection V600

 

Some might find a dedicated scanner to be unnecessary these days with multifunction printers so common, but the Epson Perfection V600 provides high-quality scans and the ability to scan film and slides. There's also many image correction features too,...

Great scanner for the price,

 

If Epson could give out perfect copies of the machine, it would be a great machine. Wondering if i should of stuck to my usual brand that Can...

Hi quality scans, manages to get a lot of detail of of transparencies with low density ; Practical machine. easy to use. ICE works fine if you not fussy. Under half the price of the V700 although the v700 is in a different league for the very fussy

Got an issue with medium format, as it puts a line through and half the image has a different density. Currently talking with Epson technicians for a solution. Maybe there is a few duds out there. Film holders are flimsy for such a sturdy scanner

A little pricey but it works well

 

Good quality scanner. Came with Photoshop 10.Soft ware takes a little getting used to but the features and performance make it worth while.

Consumer review by:

Great scanner, with Vuescan

 

Great scanner at this price point. It can handle anything I can throw at it, short of 11x14 pictures

The included Epson Scan software is decent, but if you really want to have full control over the scanner, you'll want to get dedicated scanning software. Also, it would be nice if you could adjust the focus instead of having to use shims

Consumer review by:

Very good scanner for slides and Negatives

 

Second Epson Scanner I have owned. Plugged it in and started scanning slides immediately. Haappy with this part but have yet to use any other features, i.e. repairing or edition slides. Like this scanner!
