"Why did you choose this product?"
We wanted a high end film scanner as professional photographers, when we use film as opposed to digital. We have heard many good reviews on this latest model from Epson so we took the plunge. We had seen our friend use his and were very impressed overall....

I bought this scanner to take old negatives and photos and convert to a digital format. The included software has a bit of a learning curve but lots of functionality and many helpful videos to show how to use it successfully. The scanner is fast. The slide trays are a bit flimsy but EPSON mentioned they were stronger than trays from the previous generation. It is beautiful to have two simultaneous scans for transparency and color accuracy. Also included in the kit is a color calibration tool. It is certainly a product with professional quality results. Of course you get what you pay for as well. The optical resolution is significantly higher than that of most all in one offerings or even most stand alone scanners. I am pleased with the purchase, but I wish it was not as bulky.

This is the only scanner you will ever need. It does everything. Prepare to be pleased. The image is great, ease is great, function is high. When I first researched, I was scared by the price—well worth the cost!!
This seems like a very good scanner, but it is quite large, make sure to check the dimensions before you order. Comes with a bunch of software too.
Does better than everything better than expected
