Epson Perfection V700 Photo


Serious amateur photographers will love the Epson Perfection V700 for its top-quality scans of photos and film.

High-quality scans for photographic prints and film. Modes range from full auto to full control over settings.

Minimal optical character recognition (OCR) and document-management capability.

Our experience with the Epson Perfection V700 has been a happy one. It's fast. But it also delivers one of the highest quality captures we've seen in a flatbed. Sharp with good color.Our reservations start with the need for the height adjusters. We...

Epson Perfection V700 Photo scanner


Over the last 2 years Epson has produced some exceptional scanners, the 4870 was a cracker, followed a year later by the 4990, which improved the package even further. In short they're great scanners for both flat reflective originals such as photo...

Excellent scan quality, excellent range of scan tools, software bundle, easy to use

Slow software install, big’n’blocky design, flimsy film holders

Epson has been pushing dedicated film scanner, scan quality for some years and now, with the V700 the results are certainly better than most dedicated film scanners. When you realise this scanner is under £400 (around £399 actually), and it is better...

I have used both v700 and v750 scanners. Both are good for photographers as well as for pre-press users, like offset or digital printing. It gives you very sharp image, highlights and shadow details. Epson software understands photography values and...

Great Scanner overall


Overall this is a great scanner. The main negative feature is that the scanner does not take in all of the glass scanning area, so the user needs to be aware of that limitation. The V700 has scanned thousands of pictures and negatives and the resulting...

Eight years and still doing a fantastic job


The invoice for my Epson printer is dated 11 December 2006 and after thousands of negatives scanned, I am still using it as if it just came out of the box. Most of my negatives are 6x6 and thus a 35mm scanner would not work for me. This scanner easily...
