In the January issue of Professional Photographer, Ellis Vener reviewed the Epson Perfection V750-M Pro scanner with fluid-mount capability. Here you can download and examine the details of the standard and fluid-mount film scans as seen in the magazine review.

In this scan of 6x17cm Fujifilm Velvia film, I noted a higher overall contrast level, and tonal compression and corresponding loss of detail in the darker tones in the standard film holder scan. An increase in shadow detail and tonal separation are discernable in the wet-mount scan detail.

The original full-frame scan was made at 3,200ppi, 8-bit color depth. No tonal corrections were made in either the scanning software or Adobe Photoshop CS2. Both images were run through PixelGenius PhotoKit Sharpener capture and output sharpeners.

Recently purchased the epson V750 scanner after reading all the hype- 'all format including medium'. Unfortunately I have a large file of Hassablad shots and you can not scan 2 1/4 format on the V750. Also, SilverFast shipped is 32bit, My new Dell has 64 bit Vista home premium. SilverFast may come out with a 64bit soon. The tech reps at Epson will not talk to you about why epson shipped the old version. It pass to ask a lot of questions before buying.

"Unfortunately I have a large file of Hassablad shots and you can not scan 2 1/4 format on the V750."

if that werethe case how was I able to scan a few dozen medium format shots ranging in size from 6x6cm ( Hasselblad), 6x7cm, 6x9cm, 6x12cm and 6x17cm ?

I have no insight as to whats and wherefores of Epson's implementation of VISTA.

Contact LaserSoft about the 32 vs. 64 bit VISTA issues
