Epson Perfection V550 Flatbed Scanner Review

 

Stephen Waller reviews the Epson Perfection V550, the flatbed scanner capable of scanning 35mm and 120mm film.

High resolution scans ; Effective dust removal ; Software supports multiple file formats ; Histogram compensation adjustment ; Batch scanning up to 12 images

Slow capture times ; Auto exposure not effective with all negative types

Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner

 

The Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner makes high-quality scans from both photos and film, and can scan directly to Facebook and cloud-based sites.

EPSON Perfection V550 Photo Scanner

 

Ability to scan several small photos at once. Able to convert negatives and scan slides

The main scan is rather slow and needs encouragement by clicking on the progress dialog box

EPSON Perfection V550 Photo Scanner

 

It does exactly what I thought it would do

If you use a high resolution the scanning time becomes unacceptable.

EPSON Perfection V550 Photo Scanner

 

Easy to install and run with a variety of options for scanning. Reasonably compact and quiet with good resolution.

Not great for large scale scanning of multiple objects. Fine for small documents and photos.

EPSON Perfection V550 Photo Scanner

 

Product bought at best price and availability. Photo copy facility good in both auto and manual modes. Photo paper and resolution should match or better original for best results. Slides and negatives not tried yet.

No user manual. Lengthy online download available.
