Epson has built a moderately priced LED scanner to handle slides, negatives and prints. We show you what it can do.
Epson's $250 Perfection V600 scanner is designed for the photographer who finds the Epson V700 too rich for their blood but still wants a serious photo scanner.
The V600 uses an LED light source to scan film sizes up to 120/220 and can handle two 35mm negative strips at a time. Among its more impressive features:
• 6400x9600 dpi optical resolution
• 3.4 Dmax
• Digital ICE for both prints and film
We scanned both Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides, 120 black and white negatives and some 35mm color negatives. Read our review to see how the V600 did with them.
