Epson Perfection V750-M Pro - Dual Lens System
The Epson Perfection V750-M Pro incorporates the Epson Dual Lens System, which is a new double lens scanning system that enables super resolution (6400 dpi) scanning of 35mm, 2 1/4", and 4"x 5" medium format film. High resolution (4800 dpi) scanning is also available for transparency and reflective scanning. Depending on the resolution selected, the lens carriage will switch and the appropriate lens will be set in place.
Epson V750-M Pro - Digital ICE Technologies
In addition to the fluid mount accessory, the Epson Perfection V-750M Pro also features new High Pass Optics that further optimize image quality by using anti-reflective coatings on the CCD lens and a new high reflection mirror. Another valuable time- and cost-saving feature offered with the Perfection V750-M Pro scanner is Digital ICE Technologies, a powerful tool for automatic removal of scratches and dust from film, and many surface defects from reflective prints. The Epson V750-M Pro scanner can achieve an optical density (Dmax) of 4.0, allowing for high dynamic range imaging and the ability to capture fine shadow details. The scanner also features Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and FireWire connectivity for fast data transmission.
Epson Perfection V750-M Pro scanner
The Perfection V750-M Pro is the flagship scanner at the top of the Epson Perfection line with up to 6400 dpi optical resolution and its unique fluid mount accessory. For many years, wet mount film scanning has been a professionally recognized method for reducing scratches, grain and optical artifacts such as Newton Rings. Wet mount scanning is especially valuable for black and white film, since other scratch removal technologies, including Digital ICE, are not effective on monochrome film.

The Epson Perfection 750-M Pro will be available in May and can be purchased for an estimated street price of $799
