100+ year old glass negatives on the V500
from central Kentucky, USA on 10/2/2014
I thought I would pass on an interesting use for the V500 - scanning 100+ year old glass negatives. Of course the slide/film carriers would not work on the odd sized glass negatives, so I had to carefully line up the negs so the lid lighting would work. Bottom line - the V500 did a great job pulling an image off these old, poorly stored, and sometimes damaged glass plate negatives. Each scan required cropping, and image manipulation and clean up - but the resulting digital images were a true glance back into our world 100+ years ago.

Using this for over several years now. Can report this is the best scanner I have ever used. Great features, settings selection and consistent outputs. The included Optical Character Recognition program has been a great asset. I have not used the film or slide scan feature so cannot comment on that feature. Have moved it to Windows 7 system and functions equally as well.

I have had this scanner for a number of years. It is quite professional when it comes to pictures and without a doubt very well priced for its capabilities. Good choice for the Epson name.

A+ quality scans that do ...
