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.
I am blown away by the quality of HiRes scanning. I have been scanning old family photos, and when I set the scanner to its highest scanning ability I have been able to print old grainy sepia tone images, which were originally 5 x 7 in size, to large format beautiful b/w images with great detail! I LOVE this scanner!
I had an Hp flatbed and use a Macintosh computer as I am a retouching artist. The Hp was OK but they neglected to update the software with Apple's penchant for constant OS improvements. I looked for a new scanner and looked to Epson since I have 3 of their printers and have been happy with performance and support. The epson is elegant in design and the software well supports its features. I like the location of the controls and even though it seems like a small thing, I really like that the lid stays up when you open it. When you are positioning multiple pieces of artwork on the glass it frees up both hands to do the work. The resolution is great and warm up time is minimal.
Not only is the v600 an excellent slide scanner, it is also a great slide restorer You can eliminate imperfections and return original color. My thousands of 1960s and later slides have been digitalized and preserved forever.
