    Don’t get too worked up by the negative reviews calling the Epson Scan software “junk.” It isn’t. I read enough of the other reviews to convince me to download a copy of Vuescan and try it out right away. True, Vuescan has a lot of film profiles that should be more accurate than the limited number Epson uses, but the trouble with Vuescan and this V600 scanner–in my experience–is that the frames for batch scanning a group of negatives were not accurate, and it was more than a little confusing, if not impossible, to change the frames around. This feature of Vuescan is very confusing your first couple of times around, and I lost patience and shut the program down.
    Then, thinking I’d better try the Epson software before considering returning the scanner, I opened Epson Scan. I went straight to “Professional” mode, checked out all the parameters they allow adjustment to, selected what I wanted, and clicked “Preview.” This is scanning two strips of negatives, mind you. When the…

    I did quite a bit of research before buying this unit, so I had a pretty good idea what I was getting into. Of course, there were some concerns about software, etc., but I went in with an open mind.

    First, this unit does a superb job of scanning both slides and film, so that part worked out very well. At first, I scanned at 4800 dpi, but after a bit, realized that 3600 dpi was more than enough resolution for most pictures. People have said that the carrier is flimsy, but it wasn’t a problem. Tip — when scanning a lot of slides, tape the left and bottom sides of the carrier to the scanner chassis (not the glass). You can quickly drop slides into the slots and later remove them, without the carrier shifting.

    A lot of people were put off by the Epson software, and suggested Vuescan. I demo’d Vuescan, and wasn’t impressed. Why spend a bunch of time modifying the image before the scan, when it is so much easier to make adjustments later in Photoshop 7…

    Easy to use
    Great results with film, 6×7, 645, and 135 (35mm)

    Software is a bit clunky
    Digital ICE can do bizarre things

    Largest Improvements Over V500:
    Can now scan four 645 or three 6×7 negatives at a time (spec is 6x22cm).

    Bottom Line:
    Great deal for a flatbed scanner that is designed primarily for film and graphic arts use. I don’t think I would upgrade from the V500 unless you scan a lot of medium format film, and even then it might be worth checking to see if the new medium format insert would work in the V500 (I don’t know if it would or not). The software is the same as the V500.

    One of the large bottlenecks of the V500 is that it will only scan two 645 negatives at a time. Since I usually cut in strips of 3, this is a problem. It means I had to scan each strip twice, once to get two of the images, and a second time to get the third. This means I had to 10 scans to get through a roll of…
