The Epson Perfection V500 Photo allows you to scan photos and film quickly and easily with innovative Epson ReadyScan LED Technology for low power consumption and instant scanning. Epson scanners produce fast, high resolution results time after time. Whether you're scanning everyday documents, archiving analogue photos, or working with a range of formats -- such as small or multiple production scanning of 35mm, medium or large 8" x 10" format film -- or transparencies that need a fast turnaround.
CCD chips catch and convert the information contained in light into a digital file. Epson MatrixCCD technology uses multiple rows of light-sensitive elements to give your scans higher quality, reduced image noise and better dynamic range. This means you can scan faster and at higher resolutions up to 6,400dpi while maintaining a small product size.
Digital ICE Technologies are combined hardware and software solutions that can repair old film, slides and photos as you scan, so your dusty or scratched images will look as good as new after scanning. The system can tell the difference between the original image and unwanted dust, hairs, fingerprints or scratches, so it captures the details you want and automatically removes the rest.
With warm-up time of less than a second and efficient LED white light, ReadyScan LED Technology means you can start scanning straight away. LEDs are more energy efficient and do not contain mercury, which reduces power consumption and environmental impact. Also, LEDs generate less heat, which is good for sensitive or delicate originals.
Scan all your film up to medium format with the built-in transparency unit. The scanner also includes Epson Easy Photo Fix technology for the refreshing of your faded photo memories. The easy-to-use but effective software automatically enhances your photos by bringing faded colours back to life, removing dust and correcting backlighting -- restoring them to their original glory.
Epson Scan offers a wide range of photo and film scan settings for home, office and professional scanning levels. High-level settings include colour calibration, descreening and text-enhancement function. Epson Scan can act as a TWAIN interface for your imaging application or save files directly to a range of formats, including TIFF, JPEG and PDF.
Scanning is easy with Epson Perfection V500 Photo, which offers high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity and optical density of 3.4 Dmax. There is an optional automatic document feed for the scanning of multiple-page text documents quickly. Operation is simple too with the four push buttons -- start, copy, scan to email and scan to PDF.
