Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner

Discover Film and Photo Scanning Perfection

The Epson Perfection V700 Photo is the ideal scanner for photo enthusiasts and advanced amateur photographers. Featuring Epson’s Dual Lens System combined with DIGITAL ICE Technologies it delivers exceptional quality film and photo 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 filmstrips, medium or 8" x 10" format film -- or transparencies that need a fast turnaround.

Superior Quality

Epson MatrixCCD Scanning

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.

High Pass Optics

The enhanced High Pass Optics system found in the Epson Perfection V700 Photo uses an anti-reflective lens coating to reduce ghosting and High Reflection Mirror coatings to direct the light beam more efficiently while scanning. These features help deliver improved edge sharpness and fast scanning speeds.

Digital ICE
Before and after with Digital ICE technology
Digital ICE Technologies

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.

Epson Dual Lens System

The Dual Lens System optimises scanning performance depending on the type of original you choose. The 4,800dpi High Resolution Lens is used for reflective documents and some film, while the 6,400dpi Super Resolution Lens gives you maximum quality when you scan film using the supplied film holders.

Epson Dual Lens System gives the ideal combination of speed, quality, size and value.

Fix Your Photos

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.

Making Great Scanning Simple

Scanning is easy with Epson Perfection V700 Photo, which offers high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity. You can also discover no-compromise film and photo scanning. The large 8" x 10" transparency unit makes easy work of multi-format production scanning, and 6,400dpi optical resolution means superb quality every time.

Achieve fast and easy batch scanning -- up to 24 frames of 35mm film and 12 frames of 35mm slides -- and excellent tone reproduction with 4.0 DMax optical density. There is also a 10" x 8" built-in film adapter with film holders for all common formats.

This is a superb 6,400 dpi scanner for 35mm film, 120 negatives, 1/4 plate negatives, and can scan any film size to A4. The resolution of the scanner is as good as a dedicated Nikon 4,000 dpi scanner and noticeably sharper than the admittedly cheaper Epson 4990 Photo and Canon 9950F flatbed film scanners (at 100% mag). With it's 'hight adjusters' for the slide holders it's a bit fiddly to use, but the results are simply first rate. See it fully reviewed at [...] The scanner comes with a very good twain interface and Silverfast SE, plus Photoshop Elements 3 (not 4). It deserves Photoshop CS2 though, if you afford it.

The V700 can scan 12 slides or 24 negatives in one go, scan time is in minutes per frame. There are also 120 and 4x5" negative holders, plus an A4 film area guide for full platter negative scans (plus a clip on white matt for A4 reflective photograph & document scans). Digital ICE (Kodak) infra-red scan hardware is included that eliminates dust and scratches from old film (although it can soften the image quality at high settings and add the odd artefact). I don't get much improvement in scan quality going above 3,200 dpi or to 48-bit colour as the scanner is clearly exceeding the grain size and quality of my old SLR slide film (mainly 100 ASA Agfachrome CS and older Kodachrome). Scanning of details in shadows is very good, but the image benefits from Photoshop CS's shadow/highlight utility to lighten these regions (otherwise shadows can be too dark). Photoshop elements 3 [supplied] has a similar tool, but I use Photoshop CS.

Perhaps the only reason not to buy this superb scanner is that the 'improved optics' of it's big sister, the V750 Pro, may tempt you even more when it's soon released - that will cost another £150 over this V700 though.

I bought this scanner to digitise about 7,000 slides that my family has taken dating back to 1957. I had thought of buying the Braun magazine scanner, but then it's twice the price, and what do you do with it after you've finished scanning slides?

The Epson worked straight out of the box, and is giving excellent results. Most of my slides are Kodachrome, so I can't use the Digital ICE with them, but on Fuji and Agfa stock, it seems to work very well, especially on the 'Speed' setting.

As has been said in other reviews, the slide holder is a bit flimsy, but I've done about 3,000 slides so far, and it's holding up well.

The only additions I've bought with the scanner is a FireWire cable, (the data transfer is a bit faster than USB2.0), a spare slide holder (£10 from Epson)and upgraded the bundled SilverFast software to SE Plus. The upgrade has given me Multi-Pass scanning, which does give better results, although does take slightly longer.
The Epson scan software is quicker if used in fully automatic mode, but the results are nowhere near as good as I can get using SilverFast.

In conclusion, it's a great scanner, works well and gives very good results.

I wanted copies of my medium format wedding photo negatives but the cost of getting prints duplicated or scanned by professional photo labs was just too high.

So I looked around for a decent film scanner instead. The Nikon 9000 is very nice, but at £2500 it ought to be. I already had an Epson 2480 flatbed scanner and had used it to scan 35mm slides before with some basic success so I was happy to buy an Epson again. I looked at the Canon 9950 but by all reports the software is awful.

The Epson software is actually really good. It even knows that I have two models of scanner installed and will switch between them. I have to say that in use, scanning the negatives was really easy. As reccommended by I adjusted the film holder spacers to be 3.5mm (turn them round) and loaded up the scanner. The film holders are flimsy but very sensible. They allow strip film of any size to be put in and the software works out where the gaps are. As long as you tell it which size you are scanning (645, 6x6, 6x9 etc) then it does a really good job of finding the images. The digital ice works well and the default sharpening is at a sensible level. The resolution is way above what I needed but I didn't buy the scanner for that. What I wanted it for was sharpness and colour. The sharpness is good, very good in fact for a flatbed scanner. The colour is outstanding and the shadow and highlight detail really comes through. Film may have grain but it also has a tonality that digital rarely captures.

Very impressed.

Very impressed indeed with this item. I bought the Plustek Opticfilm 7200i scanner at first but the software was so unstable i couldnt run it on Vista. then i saved a bit more money and got this baby and i'm so glad i did. the quality is brilliant. professional mode gives you all the control you could want and the silverfast software has some great features too. you can scan 35mm, medium format, large format and its great for my panoramic swing lens camera too. Also scanning a whole film at high quality is a dream on this compared to the Plustek. i can leave this working away for hours (24 frames on very high settings) and be sure its fine, where as the other one could crash and burn after seconds.
very pleased and would certainly recommend this if you can afford to pay out a little more.
