Pros: High-quality output from 35mm or medium format film, similar to dedicated film scanners. Features Digital ICE defect removal, and an optional fluid mounting bed.
Cons: Large footprint for its class. Slow when quality-enhancing features are used, SilverFast can’t access ICE grain reduction and colour restoration separately.
The Perfection V750 Pro is the second of Epson’s premium quality flatbed scanners launched this year, following the V700 (reviewed here). The two A4 scanners boast the same components, including the super-resolution second lens for film. This allows high magnification (a true 6,400-x-9,600dpi resolution for film and 4,800-x-9,600 for reflectives).
The only hardware difference is that the V750 Pro has a superior anti-reflection coating on its optics. The V750 is additionally bundled with SilverFast AI Studio software (the V700 has the ‘lite’ SE version) and X-Rite’s Monaco EZ Color colour-profiling software, together with IT8 film and print calibration targets. This bundle would set you back £145 if you bought each element separately.
