Epson Perfection V550

The Epson Perfection V550 Photo is a simple flatbed scanner, which is mainly made for scanning documents. Thanks to the transparency unit, which is integrated in the cover, negatives and slides can also be digitized. The image quality of film scans, however, is very bad. That's why you should see the possibility of scanning negatives and slides as an additional feature only. If you plan to digitize lots of films you should order a better scanner as the bigger brother Epson Perfection V600 Photo.
 
Due to numerous increases of price for the Epson Perfection V550 Photo in the last years the surcharge to its larger brother Epson Perfection V600 has become very small. Therefore we advise to purchase the much better Epson Perfection V600 Photo.
 
The image quality of the Epson Perfection V550 Photo can even be increased by operating the scanner with the scan software SilverFast. Due to better image processing algorithms and IT-8 color calibration you can get real colours based on a real color management process when operating the scanner with SilverFast. We offer the Epson V550 also with SilverFast SE and with SilverFast Ai Studio with IT-8 color calibration as a low priced bundle.
 
Please, choose above, below the price information, if you want to order the scanner with or without Adobe® Photoshop® Elements.

Recommended accessories
 
For the cleaning of the glass surface of the scanner we recommend the scanner cleaning set from Kinetronics. The set consists of an anti static cloth, with which you can clean the complete glass surface, and an anti static brush for cleaning smaller parts, but also for cleaning film material. Both the cloth and the brush have the special feature that they remove static charges, which adduct dust magically.
 
 
If the glass surface of the scanner is covered with strong dust we recommend the use of the Kinetronics cleaning fluid PLCD. That's a high value cleaning fluid, which has been developed especially for the cleaning of optical glasses and glass surfaces. With a couple of drops you can effectively remove dust and dirt.
 
 
 
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
 
 
 
Anti-dust spray is used to clean film material - no matter if it's mounted slides or film strips - by removing dust and fluffs with a flimsy current of air without touching the film material at all. There is no better, more comfortable and more efficient way to clean your film material.
 
 
 
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
 
 
 
Those who work with digital images - no matter if they come from a digital camera or from a film scanner - should absolutely calibrate their screen. Without a screen calibration performed with objective criteria you run the risk of wrongly adjusting the settings of the scan or the image editing software, which makes the image look right on your screen, but will cause unnatural alienated colours on other output devices (printer, image service, new screen).
