Epson Perfection V850 Pro

 

The Epson Perfection V850 Pro photo scanner offers professional-quality scanning for photographic prints and for film (positive or negative) at up to 8 by 10 inches.

High-quality scans for photographic prints and film (including slides). Color-calibration target and software included.

Color-calibration software is frustratingly hard to use.

If you want top-tier scan quality, and either aren't concerned about color calibration or plan to get a program like SilverFast Ai Studio 8 that offers its own color calibration, be sure to take a close look at the Editors' Choice Epson V800. It...

Good scanner and horrible film holders

 

It is really disappointing to find the medium format and large format holders of wrong dimension for such an expensive scanner. I would expect replacement for the film holders.

Good but has some flaws!

 

I was expecting a lot from this professional scanner, its scans 35mm film well up to 14MP (equivalent) and reproduces paper scans exceptionally well. However, it's Achilles heel is 120 roll film. None of the 120 film brands stay flat in the holder...

Fabulous scanner

 

I first checked this scanner out at the PDN Expo in NYC last fall. The Epson rep told me it would only do batch scanning with Epson Scan, not with Silverfast. Because of that, I delayed the purchase. I was already using Silverfast Ai Studio with a...

Versatility; software (Silverfast); double set of film frames; accuracy; great batch scanning capabilities

Bundled Silverfast is the SE Plus version; for a high-end scanner, it should be at least the Ai Studio version. That said, if you buy it from Newegg you save enough on price to make up the difference for buying the Ai Studio upgrade ; Also, Epson reps...

Terrific scanner; Silverfast, not so much

 

" This is an excellent scanner, and I'd recommend it to anyone. Does an excellent job of positives, negatives, and slides. The downside is Silverfast; I've never been able to get it to work. However, the Epson scanning software works well enough that...

Conflicted!

 

" Just received scanner. I prefer using SilverFast for my scanning and retouching. Epson scanner has conflicts with SilverFast. I've searched everywhere on internet. Found possible solution from SilverFast support but I'm having to jump through hoops...
