I bought this scanner with the specific purpose of digitizing my old 35 mm slides. The scanner's template, which holds up to 4 slides at a time, can be a little frustrating to work with. However, given the price of the scanner it's a minor issue. I can't believe how great the scanned images look, even in the lower resolution scans.
The V-600 is the next best thing to a dedicated slide and negative scanner. I am a professional photographer and I wanted a scanner that was versatile and produced scans high enough quality for smaller or daily use prints. The scanner does job.
Been using Epson scanners since scanners were invented for home and business use. Nothing else comes close. This was purchased to test out the LED light source and to see how the colors of different types of paint reflect with LEDs as opposed to fluorescents. So far so good. The only thing I didn't realize was that the transparency adapter was not like their pas units. It only has a very small light source in the lid. I'm used to the ability to scan film or transparencies (like X-Rays) on the flatbed if necessary. But no biggie. We don't often scan film.
