Shame that the person who modelled their hand holding the pen, hasn't been taught how to hold a pen properly.

Gosman: I don't understand why these are still USB 2.0 instead of 3.0? USB 3.0 is much faster and should speed up scan time tremendously!?

I run my V700 on an iMac and a W7 PC. Both using the Epson supplied drivers. On the Mac, the scanner hangs after each neg when scanning ing multiples, which is really annoying as I have to sit there looking after it. On the PC it doesn't hang and gets on with all the negs without stopping enabling me to get on with something else. I am very happy with the V700 and have scanned literally thousands of 35mm, medium format, and glass 1/4 plate negs. I never use Silvertfast.

RolliPoli: I don't think these should be called "film scanners". They are flat bed scanners on which film can be scanned. Especially from a miniature format like 35mm, sharp, high quality results are best made with a dedicated film scanner. Unfortunately, there aren't many left on the market.

Harrie, I do believe that with the V700 that 3200dpi is described as interpolated, and hence it will be no better than 2400dpi

Thankyou, I knew some, had forgotten others, and learned some I didn't know. Brilliant, very useful.

Perhaps they will send me a present for financially supporting them for every issue of PS band LR since Vs4.

We exclusively shoot b&w portraits, and have had a few sitters as famous as this one. The final shot is not as we would have done it. I am not of the 'warts and all' type of photograph, but also not of the creamy totally unblemished skin that fashion photographer seem to use nowadays. I would have preferred a little softness and reduced forehead highlight. The shot didn't require the specialist hiring of such equipment. Sad that a lot of comments here, probably from many who have never shot under. Such conditions, are so bitter.

In reply to:

(unknown member): When you are a 'traveling photographer' you tend to carry around a lot more things than just camera gear. Therefore, a backpack dedicated to taking only camera gear isn't particularly helpful for traveling photographers. At least, in my experience.

It depends how much equipment you have. I got a 7D, 70-300 plus wide angle, 50mm and a macro. Plus Flash and charger in the camera compartment and got my sponge bag and personal stuff in the top section last time I travelled abroad. If you want more then buy a bigger sack. Your complaint seems pointless.

Wow. Amazed by the number of negative comments. Sad.

I bought one of these before I read this review. I am very happy with it so far although I have not given it a full 'field' test as yet.

On article Mountain Magic: Shooting in the Lofoten Islands (75 comments in total)

Great pics, you are right in saying that it is hard to describe the place. I went there about twenty years ago in the summer and the sun never set. I guess I shot film and you have got me wondering where my photos are now. I am tomorrow driving half way from Oslo to Bergen, but will still be a huge distance from Lofoten. From one end of Norway to the other is the same distance as from London to Rome.

On article 1939: England in Color (part 3) (90 comments in total)

Great pictures. I love them I have a collection of quarter plate negatives that my grandfather took in the early nineteen hundreds. I have scanned them all (about one hundred). Some show town and scenes from East London, Epping I believe and some from Yorkshire. There's are some nice ones of an agricultural show. I'm sure someone apart from me might be interested in these but not sure who to show them to. Can anyone advise me?

What is the point? Buy a proper camera for the same money.
