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:
The Perfection V800 Photo provides professional quality results from virtually any photographic original. Providing up to 6,400 dpi resolution, this powerful scanner consistently delivers precision colour and detail, whether scanning slides, negatives or medium–format film.
Including 4.0 Dmax optical resolution, it offers exceptional image quality, excellent detail in shadow areas and remarkable tonal range. 48–bit colour and 16–bit grayscale provide subtle shades and accurate colour reproduction for everything from professional slides to simple business documents.
