Epson Perfection V700 Photo scanner


Over the last 2 years Epson has produced some exceptional scanners, the 4870 was a cracker, followed a year later by the 4990, which improved the package even further. In short they're great scanners for both flat reflective originals such as photo...

Excellent scan quality, excellent range of scan tools, software bundle, easy to use

Slow software install, big’n’blocky design, flimsy film holders

Epson has been pushing dedicated film scanner, scan quality for some years and now, with the V700 the results are certainly better than most dedicated film scanners. When you realise this scanner is under £400 (around £399 actually), and it is better...

The V750 is EPSON's top of the range flatbed scanner designed specifically for the professional photographer and designer who needs high quality scans. As the V750 is supplied with identical film holders and other accessories to the V700, and has more...

Epson Perfection V700 Photo


Serious amateur photographers will love the Epson Perfection V700 for its top-quality scans of photos and film.

High-quality scans for photographic prints and film. Modes range from full auto to full control over settings.

Minimal optical character recognition (OCR) and document-management capability.

Epson Perfection V700


We've been working with an Epson V700 in the bunker since July of last year, thanks to a quite generous loan from the company. Its distinctive dark gray and silver squared-off design takes up a corner of our large equipment table, connected to our main...

Our experience with the Epson Perfection V700 has been a happy one. It's fast. But it also delivers one of the highest quality captures we've seen in a flatbed. Sharp with good color.Our reservations start with the need for the height adjusters. We...

Epson Perfection V700


This is a well built product which is partly let down by the flimsy holders for negatives and transparency.Since this is almost certainly the application that this product will be used for it seems a real shame. The Epson software is easy to use and...

Poor Silverfast software. For me, if basic operation of software requires reading a manual then it goes in the bin. This software is in the bin. More effort should be made to make Linux software available, it's the future :-) Poor film holders. Poor...

The scans of film from 35mm to 10"x8" are all excellent. Flat artwork scans are also excellent.

Epson Perfection V700


Exelent scanning of slides, which is the main pupose for which I use the scanner. And 12 at one time makes it possible to scan so much more easily than with my previous "one at a time" scanner.

When studying the pre-view, (available in either "Thumbnail" or "Normal"), the large thumbnails - the format where it is easiest to see and modify the images to be scanned - are all cropped. It is not possible to obtain an uncropped thumbnail, which...

Epson Perfection V700


Enabled me to scan very old odd sized negatives that would have cost a great deal at a profesional photographers.

A little noisy compared with my old cheaper Canon.
