Epson Perfection V600 Photo

 

The Epson Perfection V600 Photo includes a fully automated scan mode that reliably delivers high-quality scans.

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.

Epson Perfection V600

 

Frankly, we don't recommend a scanner at all. Figure an hour for every roll of film on your high-end flatbed scanner or even a dedicated 35mm scanner and, well, you retired too late. If the tedium doesn't kill you, something else will.And scanning...

To sum up, have a serious chat with yourself if you plan to scan a large film collection with a flatbed scanner. Consider using a local lab for the collection and investing in a high-end scanner with good software to tweak special images.The V600 is a...

Epson Perfection V600 Review

 

Produces very accurate photo scans, but other models offer digital enhancement that make scans look better

Good scan quality, ability to scan photos and film negatives

Very slow for long documents, no native text recognition, clunky software

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

REVIEW—EPSON PERFECTION V600 SCANNER]

 

This scanner is the latest from Epson to combine flat bed scanning of opaque materials with film scanning, positive and negative, 35mm and 6 x 6 cm. It has scanning resolutions up to 6400 x 9600 dpi at 48 bit colour depth. A4 page scans are fast, film...

Let’s deal with the big question: can a flat bed scanner really produce film scans to compare with a dedicated 35mm scanner? In our opinion most users will be well satisfied with the Epson output. Scanned Kodachrome slides retained colour, detail and...

There is no printed instruction manual and the unit, by default, is set to Automatic mode. In this mode it will not scan negative strips correctly. The scan mode must be set to Professional (even if you think that doesn’t mean you) to get proper...

This is an outstanding scanner. Scans of opaque materials are excellent and the film scans are the best we have seen from a flat bed scanner. The bundled software makes the package good value for the money. There are cheaper scanners, including the...
