Epson reveals 6400 DPI Perfection V550 Photo image scanner
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 @ 8:45pm

Epson America today introduced the latest addition to its line of Epson Perfection scanners -- the Epson Perfection V550 Photo. The Perfection V550 delivers 6400 DPI resolution, whether scanning film, slides, negatives, photos, or everyday documents. In addition, the scanner can create enlargements up to 17 x 22, as well as the ability to automatically upload scans directly to Facebook, Picasa and other popular social and cloud services.



The company claims that with just the touch of a button, the color in old faded photos, slides and negatives can be restored to their original brilliance and color with Easy Photo Fix. Additionally, with Digital Ice technology, the scanner and software have the ability to remove the appearance of dust and scratches from film, as well as tears and creases from damaged photos. The scanner is a 6400 dpi optical scan, with a 3.4 Dmax and 48-bit color depth. Users can scan multiple 35mm slides, negatives and medium-format film up to 6 x 22 cm, at one time, with the built-in Transparency Unit. Additionally, auto-edge detection allows users to scan multiple photos at one time by cropping each image and saving each as a separate file. The cross-platform Epson Perfection V550 Photo is now available for $199 through major retailer stores nationwide and online at Epson's website.
