    The Epson Perfection V700 Photo is a professional-standard scanner aimed at photo enthusiasts and advanced amateur photographers The V700 scanner is primarily designed for advanced transparency scanning, supplied with adaptors for 35mm film and slides, as well as medium and large-format film. The Epson Perfection V700 is a bulky unit, but with good reason. It uses an advanced Dual Lens technology system to provide very-high-resolution scanning. This features a Super Resolution Lens offering up to 6,400dpi film scanning at width of up to 5.9in, and a High Resolution Lens offering up to 4,800dpi reflective and film scanning. Because the V700 features two lenses instead of the standard single lens, Epson can bring high-resolution scanning to a wider audience, by dropping the price to a more affordable level. Also, despite bulking out the scanner, the Dual Lens system doesn’t increase the A4 scanner footprint so it won’t take up any extra desk space. The main unit itself is very deep – approximately 10cm – and so is the 5cm hood, which accommodates a full-size additional light source, so you can scan a large number of transparencies at the same time. This makes the scanner look slightly odd but doesn’t add to the area it takes up. The large scanning area measures up to 8 x 10in and has four film holders that support 35mm film strips plus slides and medium and large format film. You can also batch-scan multiple originals to save time. The appearance of the device is suitably professional – stylish yet subdued, with a black and brushed metal finish. Unlike consumer scanners, it doesn’t have a huge array of unnecessary “one-touch” buttons on the front of the unit – just one scan button to activate the scanning software. Another nice touch is a blue LED embedded in the hood, so you can see at a glance how the scan is progressing. It’s exceptionally fast for such a high-quality scanner. But where a scanner such as this really has to be judged is on its image quality. And the V700 doesn’t disappoint. Colour accuracy is spot on and consistent across the entire scanning surface. Clarity and accuracy are as good as you’d expect from a much more expensive scanner. For non-professional users, the V700 comes with Epson’s standard scanner driver software, Epson Scan. This has three different user modes, depending on your level of expertise: Full Auto, Home modes and Professional mode. Using Professional mode you can adjust the levels histogram, tone correction, colour balance, and so on. You can also apply a number of advanced tools, such as grain reduction, automatic colour restoration, and Epson’s piece de resistance, Digital ICE. This stands for Image Correction and Enhancement, a one-click tool for repairing dust and scratches on old photos. Using Digital ICE adds a lot of time to scanning, but the results are impressive. Overall, the Perfection V700 Photo is everything the aspiring professional photographer or serious enthusiast could want. Scanning speeds are fast and quality is superb. It allows you to scan in multiple transparencies and, thanks to the Dual Lens technology, brings high-resolution scanning within the budget of semi-professional users.
