The Bees Knees,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner (6400dpi, 3.4 Opt Density, USB 2.0) (Electronics)
Archiving many years of 'analog' negatives is a task facing many photographers after they graduate to digital formats. There's not a lot of dedicated negative scanners available on the market for a reasonable amount of money so I opted for the Epson Perfection V500 as a compromise. It is no compromise however and does a superb job of scanning film of all sizes without fuss.
The software that comes with the unit is also super although there is no mention or setting for 6 X 4.5 negatives and these must be scanned manually without any automated stepping. A small point and my 6 X 6 and 35 mm negs are being converted beautifully and automatically. 800 negs so far and no glitches.
This scanner is highly recommended to anyone with negatives to convert and is very cost effective. Although not yet tried, I'm sure it performs equally well with reflective originals.
