Epson Perfection V800 Photo

 

The Epson Perfection V800 Photo scanner delivers top-quality scans for photographic prints, as well as for film (positive or negative) as large as 8 by 10 inches.

High-quality scans for photographic prints and film (including slides). Scan modes range from full auto to full control over settings.

Doesn't come with a photo editor or any other application program.

If price isn't an issue, you should also take a look at the Epson Perfection V850 Pro, which offers a somewhat higher-quality optical system than the Epson Perfection V800 Photo and comes with color-calibration software. However, the exceedingly small...

Great for Digitising Problematic Slides

 

I have a large number of Kodachrome slides which I have struggled to digitise. I have used previous models of Epson scanners and a dedicated slide/negative copier. All with limited success. The main issue was a blue bias in the digitised images which...

Clumsy

 

Everything about this scanner is clumsy and time consuming starting with the way you remove the document mat to start scanning negatives or transparencies. Why is there not a builtin flap or at least somewhere to store it while using the film adaptors....

Scanned images are excellent

 

Setting up on my Mac was easy as was installing the software. I bought this product to scan a large amount of 70 x 70mm slides most of which are over 50 years old, after having spoken to and given a demonstration by Epson Staff at the Photography Show....

Waste of money

 

This scanner is just a waste of money and I regret I have "upgraded" my film scanner. The anti newton glass is a huge dust magnet impossible to clean. Plus the medium format film holder is completely the wrong size. Is impossible to fit 120 film in...

Good Product, Awful Documentation

 

This a great scanner, giving the possibility to attain professional level scans. However, Epsons documentation is non-existent and the method given for connecting the device on a Mac simply doesn't work. You are directed to a website that asks you for...

Graphic Art Scans

 

I think this is a great scanner if someone scanning photos for a living and knows a few things in photoshop. I don't think there is any scanner out there any cheaper or the same price with the same quality as this one.

I purchased the scanner to scan my artwork. Airbrush Illustrations, charcoal drawings and other paintings to be run off on a printing press for selling prints. This review is not on scanning any slides or negatives. I am very picky on the scans being...

I feel the images could be a little sharper and crisper with more accurate colors when compared to the original. Using photoshop to get the files how I wanted took a more time then I expected. The bed is a bit small for most of my work but I knew this...

Epson Perfection V800 Photo Color Scanner

 

" Opened box, found skimpy directions in four languages, followed set up instructions 1 thru 5 as pictures showed and accomplished initial scan. However I cannot get the scanner to do the next image...seems like there is no power to the machine,...
