For advanced amateur photographers, the Epson Perfection V350 Photo boasts an impressive 4800 x 9600 dpi maximum hardware resolution for reproducing and enlarging images with incredible detail and accuracy. This resolution matches that used by many professionals when scanning film and allows for large prints to be made without the loss of image quality. In addition, the Perfection V350 Photo features a unique Automatic Film Loader (AFL) built into the top of the scanner lid for effortless film scanning of 35mm film strips, up to six frames at a time. If your closets are filled with shoeboxes full of negatives, you will find the AFL an invaluable tool for scanning large quantities of negative strips. Users can also scan film with a traditional film holder and the built-in transparency adapter.
The Perfection V350 also introduces a new feature - Digital Dust Correction technology. It is a more intelligent tool that automatically detects and removes unwanted dust particles from scans while maintaining the integrity of the original image. Some dust removal technologies apply detection to the whole image, which can mistakenly remove important details that resemble dust or debris. Epson's solution separates an image into different areas -- those with many image elements and those with few image elements -- and works to remove defects only in the clearer areas. In this manner, dust is removed from only those areas where it would be most visible, minimizing the risk that real image content would erroneously be deleted. This patent-pending technology is only available for Epson scanners. USB 2.0 Connector (1.1 backward compatible) Works with both PC and Macintosh computers
