Keep family memories vibrant with the Epson Perfection V550 Photo Scanner

Family Day on February 17, 2014 is something distinctly Canadian that encourages us to celebrate our roots. Every family has a box of old photos and family memorabilia collecting dust in their home. Now is the time to bring those memories back to life with the EPSON Perfection V550 Photo Scanner.

Scanning stacks of old family photos can seem daunting but this versatile scanner makes capturing family memories a breeze. Scan multiple photos, 35mm slides, negatives and medium-format film up to 6 x 22 cm all in one go with the built-in Transparency Unit. The handy auto edge detection technology detects the size of each image, crops accordingly and saves the image as an individual file.

You don’t have to be tech-savvy to get the job done; the scanner’s Easy Photo Fix feature allows you to renew faded and discoloured photos to their original brilliance with just one click. And, with Digital Ice, you can even remove the appearance of dust from photos and film.
