Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner is rated4.55 out of5 by22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner, mediocre film holdersThis is my second Epson film scanner. Both have been exceptional. The only drawback is the design of the 35mm film, and slide holders. They are awkward to use. The v750's holders were under designed and not very durable. With the v850 they attempted to correct the problems, but introduced other problems. I prefer the weaker v750 holders and use them on the v850.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for 35mm SlidesBought this to process 12,000 family slides. With two trays it makes the process supper fast, about 1 minute per slide. Disappointed the trays don't process 110mm or 127 film slides. I called customer support and they didn't seem to have a clue. Ended up have to modify the 35mm slide tray to scan the 127 film. Each of the 110 slides I had to manually crop prior to scanning. Overall it's a great high quality scanner, just wish R&D had thought of other media types when designing the trays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epson V850 Scanner and softwareI bought an Epson Perfection V850 Pro Scanner from B&H Photo about six months ago and upgraded the Silverfast scanning software to SilverFast Ai Studio 8.8. I run on a MAC mini running OSX 10.11.6 and have scanned mostly pre-1950 black and white reflective prints. I am now preparing to scan color reflective prints, color positive film and color negative film. I have had no problems with the Epson V850 which was easy to set up and put into operation. Given that, my comments are mainly about the scanning software where I have found EpsonScan software to be inadequate compared to the SilverFast Ai Studio 8.8 software. For example, Silverfast software is able to calibrate the scanner using IT8 calibration targets; EpsonScan has no facility for color calibration or any similar sort of color management. Silverfast is able to scan in batch mode permitting the user to set the scan parameters for a tray of images and then scan them sequentially without requiring operator oversight; EpsonScan has no batch mode, which requires the operator do each time-consuming scan one image at a time. In regard to batch scanning, the V850 promotional material states, “batch scan multiple slides, negatives, medium- and large-format film with two sets of film holders” but that appears to apply only when using Silverfast and not Epson Scan. Silverfast has a wide range of editing tools which can be applied before the final scan resulting in better image resolution; Epson Scan has a limited range of editing tools requiring that much of the editing must be done in Photoshop after the scan. One thing that has baffled me is that an X-Rite i1Scanner with reflective/transparent IT8 targets has been added to the V850 package but I have no idea what to do with them. Generally IT8 targets are used for calibrating an output device such as a scanner but EpsonScan does not have the ability to calibrate the scanner and Silverfast does not have the reference files for X-Rite targets. So, what do I do with these X-Rite targets?Finally, LaserSoft customer support has generally been good; it has been prompt, addressed the relevant issue in a comprehensible way. I have not yet made use of the Epson customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So-soOperation of the software is slow and tedious. Presumption is that the user is a PC/Windows user and logic follows that line. Advanced users will balk at the slowness. Scans are indeed sharp and forgiving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large FormatRaised on film photography, I made the move to large format recently. This scanner is the best available for my needs that does'nt cost as much as a used car. My work is primarily in black and white, but I am also scanning the best of old color work. The scanner itself is awesome. The software, Epson and Silver Fast need improvement. 1st, the Epson software. All the controls needed are present in the software, however the interface is tiny and suffers in usability. For example, if I wish to use the histogram and move the sliders, I can barely grab them with the mouse pointer and just a little travel of the 3 pointers results in too generous an adjustment. This tool alone needs more room to make adjustments along the baseline. The 4x5 preview is a disappointment too. Why do I see the entire holder? I would rather have at least a 4x5 preview, clear and clean. The other software has a steeper learning curve and I do not yet hve the experience needed to comment. Even YouTube is not much of a help.Thanks for listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Image Detail, Fast and Easy to Use!I have a collection of 4x5 glass plate negatives from the early 1900's that I needed to digitize.After figuring out how to scan these with a low end scanner and doing a lot of research I decided to go with the V850 to capture all of the detail these negatives hold. A lot of these negatives are of businesses and I was hoping this scanner would allow me to capture enough detail so I could read the storefront signs and window lettering that are at a distance. This scanner exceeded my expectations and now the only problem I have is my monitor doesn't have enough resolution to bring out all the detail this scanner captured so I am upgrading to a 4K monitor, I can't wait to see the clarity of these scans on a 4K monitor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Job, Epson and SilverFast !I got the Epson v850 two weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it so far. I've got no comparison, but I've read a lot of positive things about it and I can only agree. My parents talked me into scanning their photos, slides and some filmstrips so that they could enjoy them on their new flat screen... At least, they payed for the scanner and I may keep it :-)I tried the Epson software first and then switched to the SilverFast SE Plus software that was included in the package. I'm an absolute beginner and had some difficulties in finding my way around the software and getting the settings right at first, but the video tutorials (the one on Epson scanners in particular) and the SilverFast support were very helpful in this. Not so much a tutorial but, I also found this very detailed and long independent pdf to be a great help:'s a steep learning curve, but I managed to get really good results in only a short time. I'm still amazed to see what the software can get out of these old pictures and can't wait to see my parent's reactions when they see them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice scannerI compared several scanners. This is my first scanner bought for the purpose of scanning film (35mm/medium format) negatives and positive slides. I feel like it still has features I don't fully understand but there's always youtube. I have noticed that on my mac, I have to keep focus on the software Epson Scan or it will pause. I hope to resolve this soon. There was another scanning software included in the box (Silverfast) which I've installed; but, the app with it's ui elements seems more like a bad video game than professional imaging software, though it seems to have it's fans.
