      High quality scanning


      With an optical resolution of 6400 dpi, you can enjoy high quality images that are packed with detail. It uses Epson ReadyScan LED technology to provide fast scanning, with a minimal warm up time before you can begin scanning.

      You  can also scan your film negatives to create copies. The transparency unit is built into the scanner, and allows you to scan two 35 mm filmstrips or four 35 mm mounted slides. It also supports medium film format.

      This scanner is also ideal for larger media, such as large photos, newspaper articles and posters, as you can scan up to A2-sized pages, and make use of the ArcSoft Scan 'n' Stitch Deluxe software.

      Bringing life to your photos

      The Perfection V550 benefits from Digital ICE technology, which digitally repairs your damaged film to bring your photos back to life. Whether they are suffering from imperfections, scratches or fingerprints, this technology automatically removes it from scanned film.

      Epson Easy Photo Fix can also help to restore faded colour, remove the appearance of dust and adjusts the backlighting.

      Fantastic scans of my medium format 6x6 B&W negatives. Very intuitive to use. Use professional mode for full control.
      Although the actual scanner is heavy and feels very well made, the negative holders are flimsy. I guess that is ok for hobbyist use but with daily use I wouldn't see it lasting too long.

      Good looks!
      Side On/Off switch needs to be a more positive switch i.e. not as light as it is as it's easy to double switch on/off. Have a 'rocker switch'

      Before buying this scanner I read PC Magazines review for scanners for Mac and other user reviews. (The V800 was more than I wanted to spend so I bought the V550.)

      Used for scanning old (1950's - 1980's) transparencies - this achieved outstanding results compared to a cheaper scanner I had bought, and well worth the extra money. The quality of detail revealed is amazing. Like comparing the view from a filthy dirty window to a clean one!

      Colour restoration and dust removal works really well.

      Easy to use once you have got the hang of it and worth spending a bit of time experimenting with settings.

      Inspite of the negatives, I think this is a great product and I wish I had bought it before I scanned 150 boxes of slides on the cheap one I initially bought. The difference in quality of the photos is such that I am now going to go back and re scan those boxes.

      If you are concerned about budget, don't waste your money on a cheaper scanner just buy this one, you won't regret it.
      The instructions and help information tabs are quite technical and assume you are a photographic expert, which I am not. That said it is reasonably easy to work it all out and the basic fully automated setting gives good results without the need to fiddle with other settings.

      It does take time to complete a scan of 4 negatives in Professional Mode, but not as long as the system will initially show. Although it doesn't tell you to do so, I found you do need to click on the screen to instigate the scan of each negative, otherwise it just sits there doing nothing!

      Some people have commented on the glass scanner bed getting dusty. I lift the slide holder off each time and wipe the glass screen with a dry E Cloth for glass which removes any stray dust particles. I also give each negative a quick flick with a large clean make up brush to remove any dust. In doing this I have not had any problems with dust etc.

      Quick and easy for slides (providing you place them all horizontal). Although not designed for scanning microfiche, it does a pretty good job (using alternative software).
      The instructions don't specify that all slides should be placed horizontally in the carrier. To scan microfiche, you have to make a custom carrier.

      I have an archive of slides and negatives from my pre-digital days and want to digitise some of them. When using transparency scanners in the past I have found it a very slow task, scanning just one slide at a time, I like the way the V550 enables four slides to be scanned at the same time. It will also scan two strips of 35mm negatives (up to 12 pictures) and also has a carrier to scan 6x6 and 6x4.5 negatives. The few slides and negatives I have scanned so far I have been very impressed and happy with the quality. As yet I haven't had chance try out some of the more advanced tools.
      As yet I haven't found any bad points.
