Epson releases new photo scanner

Nov 12, 2013

Epson’s new photo scanner allows users to scan and upload photos directly to social media, photo sharing Web sites and other cloud storage services.

Featuring Digital ICE Technology that removes dust and scratches from damaged film, the Perfection V550 Photo is the ideal photo scanner for enthusiasts who want to enhance their photo collection.

Epson Easy Photo Scan software allows users to share photos more easily with friends and family by uploading scanned images directly to selected social media and photo sharing sites, such as Facebook or Picasa. Meanwhile, Digital ICE Technology automatically removes dust, imperfections, scratches and fingerprints from scanned film, without the need for time-consuming manual retouching.

With a 6 400dpi resolution, an optical density of 3.4 Dmax and built-in transparency unit, this photo scanner can easily scan a wide range of media – from standard photographs, newspapers and A2-sized posters to filmstrips, mounted slides and medium format film – with fast, high quality results.

Kelvin Reynolds, GM at Epson South Africa, says, “Packed full of technology and software to repair and restore original photographs, this high-quality photo scanner is ideal for anyone with a back catalogue of old memories they want to bring back to life. Thanks to Epson ReadyScan LED technology, this scanner is ready to work within seconds after switching on so there’s no waiting for it to warm up.”
