[filmscanners] Re: Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner,
I didn't have to do anything to get my new Epson V500 scanner to work in
Vista-x64. I used
the installation CD and then immediately installed the 64-bit updates that I
from the Epson support pages. Then I turned the scanner on. Windows made the
low beep that
it does when it recognizes any USB device and that was it. The scanner works
Vuescan Prof. It was recognized immediately.
Environment: Vista Ultimate-x64/SP2, 8 GB RAM.
I went ahead and bought Silverfast Ai Studio for it for a variety of reasons
related to the difficult faded originals. They're very old filmstrips of great
value that I'm restoring. Silverfast isn't as easy to use as Vuescan but I felt
finely tuned results justified the high price. Btw, Silverfast had no problems
the scanner either. That's because Lasersoft customizes each version for a
scanner. Vuescan should drive virtually any scanner right out of the box. It's
I made sample scans on a friend's V750 and could not discern any difference in
between those scans and the ones on the V500 -- and I am very picky. The optics
probably better on the V750 though. Don't bother with the Epson OEM software.
Vuescan or Silverfast are greatly superior. Your choice.
