New stuff from Epson, this time a nice scanner…

Epson America, Inc. today announced the Epson Perfection V500 Office scanner for micro-business owners, home office users and consumers, delivering a scanning solution that effortlessly combines the productivity features of a document scanner and the image quality of a photo scanner into a compact package

It includes a 30-page automatic document feeder with scan speeds up to three pages per minute, four push buttons for easy, one-touch scanning, and Epson ReadyScan LED technology for fast scans, eliminating warm-up time both when starting a scan or when switching between reflective and film scanning for enhanced productivity.

In addition, the Epson Perfection V500 Office offers 6400 dpi resolution for stellar image quality scans, and a wide range of specialty photo features such as a transparency unit for negative, slides and film scanning, Digital ICE Technology for dust and scratch removal in film scans, and Epson Easy Photo Fix technology for restoring old and faded images, removing dust and reducing grain.
