Product Reviews for Epson Perfection V600 6400 x 9600dpi 48bit Color Flatbed Scanner

Tricky to get the right software for Yosemite; once done it works very well.
All Negatives Very Blurry with Horrible Contrast
from USA, Mobile, AL, USA on 12/6/2014
It is not the source- my negatives are perfectly clean, crisp and colored. The film is flat. It is not damaged in any way. When viewed with a backlight, the negatives are fantastic. It is not my computer. My screen produces HD images from all types of sources available online. The colors are true. It is not the software- I've tried almost every combination of choices using the professional scan software option to capture an image. ALL are blurry and incapable of distinguishing well defined areas of the photo where there happens to be a high contrast. The imperfections are NOT remedied with post-scan processing software. The software masks them slightly. The scanner simply cannot find the correct focal point for the image. It's just like a camera lens. Have you ever tried to photograph a flower up close and not adjusted the macro settings? The camera cannot produce the image without blurring- it cannot focus because it is too close. The same issue appears to be occurring with this scanner, but unfortunately, I do not have a macro setting to adjust. I surmise the backlight is too dim as well. I cannot confirm because it shuts down when the scanner lid is slightly opened. Only buy his scanner if you want quick images to post on facebook. This is not for a person attempting to capture their negatives digitally in a quality manner for databasing of your family moments. It will give you an image. It will not look like the picture you captured on film.

like other hardware items i have purchased, there is always a learning curve. i take it all scanners are some what slow, but i should figure out the most efficient ways to operate the scanner. Good scanner, maybe great as I get to know it with use. The investment is worthwhile. i have thousands and thousands of photo, slides and negatives. Do I have the time to actually capture them to a digital format? Epson has given me the tool to start and find out.

Epson Perfection V-600 photo
from IL on 11/20/2014
To early to review this scanner. Just purchased couple week's ago. I like the quality of the scan's. I hope it last longer than the last two Epson scanners. I'm disappointed that the scanners don't last long. I own Epson perfection 3170 and V-500 photo scanners. Neither one is working now. Thanks to Epson for giving me price break on this scanner which makes me feel better. I hope Epson improves registration window form / buttons and make them more visible, so that I do not stumble several times to go back and try to register the product.
