Description

The Epson Perfection V500 Photo was especially designed for the requirements of hobby photographs. The innovative Epson ReadyScan LED technology uses a white LED as light source. This saves power and yet the scanner is ready for operation immediately.

The integrated transparency unit enables the scanning of negative and positive film up to medium-sized format. The scanner furthermore includes the DIGITAL ICE technology for the removal of dust and scratches on colour films and the Epson Easy Photo Fix technology for the refreshing of your faded photo memories.

epson v500 photo scanner
Reviewed by neale. Review Posted 29/12/2009

Brilliant product. I decided to digitise my library of negatives, and had originally bought a cheap 35mm ionscan product. It was easy to use, but limited resolution & poor quality & image enhancement facilities were non-existant. So, I chose this (over the Canon 8800F) because the web reports said better image quality and a youtube video identified a 120mm negative holder. The image quality is brilliant. I am particularly impressed with the automatic colour correction option, and the auto-detection of 35mm frames. The high resolution scan speed is slow, but you can configure it to scan 2 negative strips in a batch job, and come back 20 minutes later after doing something else. I was disappointed that the high-resolution film scan area is not as large as the A4 page size (used for reflective scans). Hence, you cannot scan 5" * 4" large format negatives in a single pass. However - overall, the product is superb for 35mm and 120mm film sizes.

  • Overall 5*
  • Ease of use 5*
  • Value for money 5*
