Had this a couple of weeks and I love it. I only use professional mode, 48bit colour, 6400 resolution, unsharp mask and grain reduction and digital ICE. JPEGS seem sharper than TIFFS. Just do the preview, enter above settings and scan.Nice sharp pictures. I don't bother adjusting colours etc Id far rather go in Photoshop Elements to do that if I feel the need. The results are generally better with medium format. I need 35mm, 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7 and it does all those straight out of the box. Remember to pull out the white thing in the lid before you start scanning film. The software loads very quickly on PC. There is a big elephant in the room Im amazed no one has mentioned. When you scan Kodachrome slides you can get hideous bright lines around edges in contrasty slides. These are called edge artifacts, and further research shows Epson ICE does not support Kodachrome, it doesn't seem to be a problem with other slides and I shot mostly film anyway. You are probably saying well don't use ICE then, but you have to its so good, and you just end up with horrible grot all over the pictures if you don't. So in summary, if you only have a few or no Kodachromes this is a great scanner, if you went mad with Kodachrome at the time I would suggest looking elsewhere. Oh and don't worry about other reviews saying the carriers are flimsy, they have to be fexible to click fasten around the film easily, they aren't for knocking nails in with. If for some reason you shot 127 and 126 or APS check out a certain auction site for carriers for them first as some aftermarket ones are available.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This scanner is big: maybe 20% longer and wider, and at least three times deeper than my Canon Lide 210. You need a big desk or sturdy shelf to accommodate this.

The scanner is not always intuitive to use due to a couple of quirky design features. I followed the graphical instructions on how to set up the scanner, but could not initially find the On switch. This turned out not to be on the front or back of the scanner, but on one of the sides. From the image, which only showed a small section of the scanner, this was not clear.

Once I got the scanner on, installing the software was straightforward, as was scanning photographs. I was always disappointed with the quality of photographic scans from my old Canon scanner as I tend to pixel peep and even at 600dpi they were lacking in detail and quality. The Epson V550 can scan at a much higher resolution and even at lower than maximum density the scans from the Epson were excellent.

Scanning 35mm negatives proved a little more difficult. Firstly, the plastic holders for the negatives are a little fiddly to open, and I was worried I might snap one. Secondly, once I got the film in, the scanner kept giving an error message that I did not understand. After searching for help on You tube I discovered that I needed to remove the white insert from the top of the scanner in order to scan film (though you need to put it back in for scanning photographs and documents). This was admittedly partly my fault for not following the instructions more carefully, but a more useful error message would have been appreciated and saved some frustration.

Once I was able to scan the negatives, I was very impressed with the quality of the scans. They take a while to scan, but the quality is worth it.

I bought this as an upgrade from my old Epson V330 photo scanner, when I realised how many medium format negatives I had to scan! It's similar to the V330, but a bit bigger. The V550 also offers an increase in maximum scanning resolution over the V330 from 4800DPI to 6400DPI. It uses the same EpsonScan software, but with additional options, such as colour restoration and digital ICE technology. I found the colour restoration function useful when scanning old prints which had a severe colour cast, and the results were accurate, although sometimes a little harsh-looking. By the way, the dialogue box supposedly allows you to select up to 12,800DPI, but the scanner itself may not be able to go up to this resolution.

The main advantage of this scanner, is the large light window in the lid (83mm wide * 270mm long) which will easily allow scanning of medium format (120) roll film (60mm wide) and larger. To scan negatives or transparencies, you need to remove the reflective pad from the lid, to reveal the window. The scanner comes with 2 carriers, one of which allows scanning of either four 35mm slides, or 2 strips of 35mm negatives- so a total of 6 frames per strip could be scanned, although the edges may be clipped if the frames overlap the window. So safer to scan 4 or 5 at a time- in any case, negatives are often cut into strips of 4 to fit into their sleeves. The carrier window is only 24mm wide, though, so if used for instamatic (126 format), the top & bottom of the square 28mm frames will be clipped. It's a shame they didn't make the window a little wider. I found that for scanning this type of film, it was best to clamp it to the glass using the medium format carrier. The scanner seems to cope well with the film not being absolutely flat.
