Love this scanner. The only thing I would change would be more sizes of frames to hold negatives. A lot of the negatives will not fit the ones that came with the scanner. I love being able to scan what I have though. And, does a good job scanning. The settings Could be a little more senior citizen friendly.
Good scanner, works great, price is right. All is good with this unit in terms of performance as a scanner. Instructions leave much to be desired, way too intuitive, not enough written about "How to scan" , "How to copy". etc. All is learned by trial and error.
I purchased this scanner to scan slides from 40-50 years ago. I have used Epson scanners before in other settings, but never owned one myself. I am thrilled to finally own one that I can use at any time! The scanner processes four slides at a time. This takes a little time to go through an 80-slide carousel, but it's well worth the wait. I have not used all of the features of this scanner, but other reviews indicate that the other features are very useful. Epson makes a fine product, one that I would highly recommend.
This scanner does much better than the scanner I used before. Unfortunately, scanners as a group are very low tech copy machines. Processing software can be good but the physical process is antiquated. Slides especially suffer. Slides are film mounted between cardboard which is thicker than the film itself. This means every slide is out of focus compared to prints. Why there couldn't be a slide focus feature seems puzzling. Just a knob to adjust focus would be nice. That might mean something more than just a surface glass for imaging the print, maybe a slot over the imaging mechanism on some sort of slide tray instead of the glass top. We are taking images of planets millions of miles away, but we can't scan a slide in focus yet. I think Epson could do it if they wanted to bad enough.
