FIX THE FILM HOLDERS!

By MoPhocus from New Orleans on 10/01/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great scanner, wonderful new light source, lousy film holders! I use this for scanning prints, slides and negatives - holding the film and transparencies flat and in the right place, without damaging them, is ESSENTIAL. Everyone criticizes the holders, especially medium and large format. So fix them, already!

Great with some needed solfware improvements

By showin from Newport Beach, Ca on 08/28/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had the v850 for 4weeks now I am very satisfied with the hardware, I like the hole and pin alignment which now come in connection with all slide film holders. The Epson software is a little quirky. at least on the Mac OS, the buttons which control the software do not always show up completely. Meaning there is a rectangle selection button with NO TITLES they are opaque but do work? The other problem with the Epson software are the buttons under the professional Mode do not always show up i.e. Ice, dust removal? If I restart the application and start over that usually corrects it but it is irritating. I have always been somewhat challenged with using the third party software from Germany perhaps I need to take a class, I can never seem to get as good a result as with the Epson software when it is working correctly. All and all I really do like the new v850 Scanner.

Just opening it!

By Linda from Syracuse, NY on 07/18/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I can't review yet as I am just setting it up! Sorry it took me so long to get it set up. There is confusion in which CD to use first however. As per the instructions, I thought was to use the Silverfast first, so did, and it seems to say to go to the Epson one. I will soon know!!! Linda

GREAT SCANNER

By SPACEFOXBAT from Belleville, MI on 06/30/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After 2 decades of using Epson scanners for our newspaper, we needed a replacement for one of our 10 year old Epson scanners (which still works). There was no other choice in my mind than Epson, but we did a comparison to other scanners out there, and Epson came out on top, especially the V850 Pro. We never had a Epson scanner fail on us, and that was one of biggest selling points of Epson.

Epson V850

By oldPhotosrestoredCDLtd from Woodsboro, MD on 02/16/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Beginning in the late 1990s, I have been using Epson scanners and printers in my workflow for reconstruction of heirloom photographs and printing archival copies. My system includes an up-to-date Mac OS, a full subscription version of Adobe CC and a variety of third party plugins. To date I have not had any major conflict or issue with Epson products and the new V850 is no exception. My purchase was about one month ago so I can not make a definitive statement on how the mechanics will function over time but there are no conflicts with OS Yosemite. I have a V700 which is about 2 years old and still performing wonderfully. The anti-reflective other new optical features are why I purchased to V850"you can not have too many nuances of clarity when you are repairing damage to old photos! So far I have only scanned photographs and not transparencies so my comments are limited to reflective scans. Clarity, which I assume is due to the optical improvements, is noticeable. Tarnish or silvering is a common problem with old photographs. Tarnish is frequently exacerbated by all of the light required in scanning. So far this is not happening with the V850 and I could not be more pleased. This scanner does not magically make more show up behind/in the tarnish but it makes a huge difference by not further obscuring what is still there. This quality is also noticeable in a reduction of amount of paper texture picked up in the scanned image, another time saver in complex restoration work. The scanner software: This seems to be more sensitive than the previous model but I have to attribute it to the increased clarity of the scans (i.e. giving the software better data to work with) as I do not see any difference in driver dialog box. I generally scan at the largest useful"for me" dpi (600 - 1200) and 48bit and then make all corrections in Photoshop but experimenting with the V850 to make corrections with Levels, Curves, etc. is yielding some useful scans for aligning in Layers in PS and choosing (for masking or selecting) for various purposes. It is a part of the process that has to be conformed to the user's workflow and for me the choices it gives me are extremely helpful. Third Party software included: Lasersoft Silverfast 8 SE Plus. This is the second included DVD of this application that I have received with an Epson scanner and while I would be glad to give the application a really good tryout I have found doing that to be incredibly confusing for what should be a a simple install procedure. Silverfast seems to be most effective on transparencies and if I did more with film I might persue this further but for now I am not going to be investing any more time in this software. Here is why. There three levels of Silverfast, low to high"Silverfast 8, Silverfast 8 SE Plus, Silverfast AI Studio 8. My V700 came with Silverfast 8. I tried it on a few things but it does not output a 48bit file. It processes a scan using 48bit but creates an 24bit file. Not useful to me. So it stayed unused on my hard drive. The V850 comes with a Silverfast 8 SE Plus DVD but when installed (including deleting the other version and all associated Library files, ad nauseam) the software opens as Silverfast 8 not SE Plus and it does not request the serial number/license code included with the DVD. Going to the Lasersoft website there are instructions for getting it as a download with the new serial number/license code but that results in the same version opening"none of the SE Plus features are added. There are only three features to this upgrade and while none of them are for 48bit files (you have to spend more money for AI Studio 8 for that) they were worth checking out. If I had been able to see the difference I would have spent the money for the upgrade. But I do not feel I can risk more investment with a software company that makes a simple upgrade so difficult, if not actually impossible. If it works for you, great, this is just my experience.
