Epson Perfection V500 Photo and scanning negatives

The default software that comes with the Epson scanner is great for
everything but the negatives I want to scan. The sizes they let you
select for the negatives don't match the negatives I am working with.
So instead of seeing 8 separate pictures it sees 6.

I downloaded Vuescan from 'VueScan Scanning Software'
(http://www.hamrick.com) and it at least lets you scan the whole
negatives strip. I then can select each individual picture and do a
final scan. It's slower this way, but at least I don't miss any
pictures.

The default software is faster and would be great if it was able to
detect the size of each negative. When I am just scanning photos though
it does detect each picture, separate em, and perform the color
restoration on each. I am scanning really old pictures and negatives
from 1960 to 1980.

The scanner itself is wonderful. It uses LED's instead of bulbs to
generate the light. So there is no warm up time. Much faster than
using most other scanners. The negatives/slide holder is flimsy though.
It seems easy to break.

Re: Epson Perfection V500 Photo and scanning negatives

Just relaying my experience with the product really. Although if you
know of a way to make the default software correctly detect the size of
the negatives, I'd be thrilled to hear it. I'd be happy if I could just
scan the entire strip and manually identify each picture with the
default software. I like the default software better than Vuescan for
anything but negatives right now.

I have to use Vuescan when working with negatives in order to get all
the shots.

If you know of a negatives holder that is well built that works with
the Epson V500 please let me know. 20oz pop bottles are made of a
tougher plastic than the one it comes with. It will definately break
after a certain number of uses. I'm doing my best to be very gentle.
