Everything I need

 

This is my third scanner. The first was a roll-through Microtek, the second was a UMax Astra 610P. I've seen some people complaining about difficulties with their scanners. The UMax is very inconsistant and not at all intuitive! The first thing...

Rock Solid

 

I looked and looked and picked this scanner on the quality behind the Epson name and they lived up to it!! Packed with features and 1200/2400 dpi is more then enough for the typical home user. The color and SHARP resolution is first class and stunning....

Product Specifications

The combination of powerful features, ease-of-use, high quality and affordability with the Epson Perfection 1260 has taken home scanning to new levels. Technologies that are often found only in advanced scanners are standard in this new and incredibly versatile scanner. It is now a case of home scanning with a very real difference - the Epson difference. An optical carriage movement of 2400 dpi with Micro Step Drive, Dynamic Range Control and Simultaneous RGB scanning produces smooth, clear images with high color consistency and depth. With the optional Transparency Unit, scanning 35-mm film negatives and slides is an absolute breeze. With a total of 10 applets, the Epson Smart Panel makes it an absolute snap to make the perfect scan for photos, OCR, e-mail, Web and even Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). With direct scanning to P.I.M. (Print Image Matching) format, photograph scans feature colors more vivid than scans restricted to the traditional sRGB color space. With a single press of one of the scanner's four buttons, the scanner enters auto mode and delivers optimum scans, every time. The Perfection 1260 Photo model comes standard with a versatile 35-mm slide adapter unit for scanning negatives and slides.
