The Perfection V300 Photo is the latest scanner from Epson and is aimed squarely at photo enthusiasts.

It is capable of scanning documents, photos, film or books, and has a built-in transparency unit for scanning 35mm films and slides with the supplied film holder, at resolutions up to 4800dpi.

You can scan both landscape or portrait content and once scanned, the machine has a range of editing tools including Epson Easy Photo Fix which restores colour in faded photos, corrects backlight or removes dust and discolouration from images.

And, claims the manufacturer, it is also an energy efficient model as it uses ReadyScan LED, which requires less energy whilst scanning than competitor models.

The Epson V300 Photo is priced £69.99 and will be available from 1 November 2008.
