Epson launches Perfection V200 Photo scanner

The Epson Perfection V200 Photo is a compact photo and film scanner boasting a fast start up time and comes complete with all the software you'll need in the box.

Featuring a 4800dpi optical resolution with Epson Matrix CCD technology this boasts a new Auto Photo Orientation feature will straighten photos, which have been inserted off-angle, on the flatbed to produce a perfectly aligned image.

A nice touch is the "multiple scan to PDF" button that's been added, automatically saving documents into PDF format so they are easy to email and file.

Hassle-free film scanning is delivered with the built-in transparency unit which scans six frames of 35mm stripfilm or four frames of slides at once.

With an extendable hinge and fully open lid design, the Perfection V200 Photo scans documents up to 25mm thick with the lid closed.

When open fully to 180 degrees it can copy large document formats, ideal for scanning thick textbooks with heavy spines.

The Epson Perfection V200 Photo will be £69.99, available July 2007.
