1. Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner by Cnet

The Epson Perfection V700 Photo makes an excellent choice for a deep-pocketed photo hobbyist or a pro who needs to scan originals in a mixture of sizes.  ”I’m sitting on 1,000 slides. What’s the best way to get them into the computer?” is a frequently asked question I get from both friends and readers. Of course, the easiest solution is to send them off to someone else. But that can get expensive, and many people don’t want to subject their prized photos to the disinterested hands of a technician. That leaves you with a scanner as your only option. For speedy, unattended scanning, a dedicated slide scanner with an automatic feeder, such as the Nikon Coolscan V, is a good bet. After you’re done with the slides, though, it becomes an expensive paperweight. So after the costs and benefits play out, your best overall choice turns out to be a really good flatbed scanner–like the Epson Perfection V700.

At $549 list, the Epson Perfection V700 Photo is not for everyone. But if you take your photography seriously, are demanding about scan quality—and particularly if you have a large print and film collection waiting to enter the digital age, this scanner well worth your attention. Its claimed resolution of 6,400 pixels per inch is significantly higher than the 2,400- or 3,600-ppi maximum of many dedicated film scanners, but scan quality is the important measure, and that’s among the best we’ve seen.

3. The Epson V700 Photo Scanner Review by photo-i.co.uk

It seems like this is becoming an annual event, a year ago I reviewed the Epson 4990 scanner, the year before it was the 4870. Both scanners produced high quality scans that were close, if not better than most dedicated film scanners. Most photographers are now shooting digitally, so film scanning is not a high priority. Having said that, there are many photographers who still want to convert their slide and film collections into digital files. High end film scanners are now rare items so flatbed scanners would seem to be the most logical and affordable choice. Lets take a close look at the Epson Perfection V700 Photo scanner.
