Description

This is the first Epson model we recommend you look at if you're looking for a general purpose artwork, document AND film scanner.  

Whilst these machines are not really professional level film scanners - they produce quite soft scans and compressed tonality when compared to professional film scans, especially with smaller film formats - they suit a lot of amateur and proofing uses - for example, they're great for making contact sheets, or scans for smaller print sizes.

We'd recommend you strongly consider the V850 as well.  The key reductions the 800 has versus the 850 are:

  • Less good optics (the V850 has coated optics, which, just like with good camera lenses, can significantly improve image quality)
  • Slower scans (not a problem if you're doing now-and-then work, but if you have many scans in front of your the 850 is a lot quicker)
  • The V850 comes with 2 of each film holder - meaning you can load the next one up while you're scanning in the current set, again very useful for larger scanning jobs
  • The Silverfast version included with the V800 is a more basic version - in particular Kodachrome scans are not well supported with this more basic version
  • The V850 includes colour targets (both reflective and transmissive, i.e. for artwork and for film) - and profiling software, which can significantly improve the colour accuracy of your scans.  (You can of course buy such targets separately and we personally recommend the aftermarket Vuescan software as the best way to run these scanners).
