Bought as a high end stand alon scanner that was able to scan 35 mm film, 35 mm transparencies, 120 mm film and 116 mm film. It gives great scans that I use to sell prints I make from them. It took some trial and error to figure the correct settings but in the end I am so pleased with my choice of this scanner.
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.
