The default mode is the scanner equivalent of a point-and-shoot mode on a camera, handling virtually all of the settings for you.


Switch to Home mode and you can control a few settings, including adjusting brightness after a preview. Switch to Professional mode and you get much more control, with settings for color balance, saturation, and more. Home and Professional modes Epson Perfection V500 Photo Copy a backlight correction feature that automatically fixes photos with, for example, a dark face against a bright background. You simply click a check box, instead of having to adjust settings manually.


The two more advanced modes also include Digital ICE, a hardware-based dust-and-scratch-removal tool. It takes multiple scans and analyzes them to find and digitally remove dust and scratches. Digital ICE does a much better job than any software-based dust removal, but because of the multiple scans, it also takes longer.

That's a common limitation for scanners with Digital ICE, since dust is a more critical issue for film than for prints. Raw scan quality can certainly stand toe-to-toe with, for example, the Editors' Choice Canon Canoscan F.

In the real world, however, where slides often suffer from dust specks or scratches, Digital ICE gives the V an important quality boost. Not so incidentally, although Digital Epson Perfection V500 Photo Copy helps make the V a better choice than the F for scanning film, the two share similar limits as to how many slides or frames they can scan at once.

The V is limited to scanning four slides, two 6-frame strips of 35mm film, or one frame of medium-format film 6-bycentimeter, 2. For my tastes that's too few for users who may want to scan a large number of slides or Epson Perfection V500 Photo Copy in one sitting. The V's scan speed is well within the range of typical flatbeds for both prints and slides.

More significant, the LED-based light eliminates warm-up time, which means the times are consistent from one scan to the next, whether the scanner's been sitting idle for hours or you've just finished another scan. Another benefit is that, unlike the cold cathode fluorescent lamps that most scanners use, LEDs don't contain mercury, which gives the V green Epson Perfection V500 Photo Copy, too. On my tests using fully automatic mode, the V took about 25 seconds overall to prescan automatically adjusting settings and then scan a 4-by-6 color photo at ppi. Scanning slides in advanced mode at 2, ppi took 27 seconds for the prescan and 48 seconds for the scan.

Using Digital ICE on the slides bumped the scan time up to 2 minutes 32 seconds. The V suffers from some shortcomings as an all-purpose scanner, but that's inevitable for a scanner that focuses on photos. In particular, the choice to include a transparency adapter for film leaves no room for an automatic document feeder ADF to handle multipage documents. That, in turn, limits the V's usefulness for office tasks like copying, faxing, and scanning documents for OCR.

For still more image editing power, a second CD containing Photoshop Elements 4 may be a useful addition for those without the more full-featured Photoshop. With transparencies in mind, the V comes with two holders that fit on the scan platen the glass surface you put things on to scan when you lift the lid to fit 35mm film strips and for larger size transparencies. The V captures a theoretical Epson Perfection V500 Photo Copy Scanning transparencies is all about resolution — even a 35mm slide or negative holds a staggering amount of detail. For a digital device to record this information in enough detail to make a sizeable image, the resolution of the scanner has to be high, an area where the consumer scanners can fall down.
