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.
As an old time photographer, I had plenty of 35mm color slides. I wanted to preserve the best of the best so I turned to a scanner that I knew would handle the job. So glad that I did. Likely other Epson Scanner would do the same, but this one worked for me. No mater the model, it is not an automated process; nor should if be, it is to be expected that you have to work for the best slide, but I must say, the Epson process and software made the job a "piece of cake". Thanks Epson
I bought this a few weeks ago and have been very happy with its performance and features. I have a few hundred 35mm slides that are about 45 years old that I want to digitize and this scanner has been doing an excellent job. The finial results are very good quality! Highly recommend this scanner.
