Epson, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of computer printers and photo scanners has debuted the world’s fastest photo scanner. The Epson FastFoto FF-640 dubbed as the world’s fastest photo scanner can scan one photo per second. This scanner is specially designed for preserving photographs in a faster and more convenient manner. After being scanned, the software offers various ways of viewing the photos. It is assumed that this scanner is designed keeping in mind the personal use of a scanner to preserve memories.
Why Does The Epson Fastfoto FF-640 Stand Out?
The Epson FastFoto FF-640 photo and document scanning device is different as compared to other scanners. One of its major specifications is that it can scan fragile photographs without furthering damaging them. A special cover is provided for scanning torn or extra-delicate prints. It not only captures the picture, but also captures any kind of notes written behind it simultaneously.
The world’s fastest scanner has in-built software for editing the photographs. The Smart Photo Fix (SPF) technology is applied in the editing software. Moreover, it performs various functions like correcting colours, restoring faded photographs and removing red-eye. In order to make archiving easier for the customer, the FF-640 has a companion FastFoto software which organizes the scanned photos. It also adjusts the settings according to the individual’s needs.
Scanning Made Convenient
The Epson FastFoto FF-640 scanner is unlike the typical flatbed scanners. In those scanners, the lid had to be lifted and each photograph had to be aligned under it. This would consume a lot of time and manual energy. On the other hand, the Epson FF-640 has a document feeder design which enables placement of up to 30 photos at a time. The default resolution is 300 dpi which can also go up to 600 dpi. This scanner can scan prints up to 8 x 10-inch size. The FF-640 can also scan other materials except for photographs such as greeting cards, business cards, text documents, receipts etc. The world’s fastest scanner can scan everything right from passport size photos to panoramic views.
The Epson FastFoto FF-640 scanner is available at a price of $649.99. Known to be a user-friendly device, this scanner can also scan a stack of pictures with varied sizes. Hence it saves the individual the trouble of organizing the photos as FF-640 does it for you. This is because the integrated software does the sorting out in the connected computer or laptop, archiving them accordingly. This makes the task of scanning fast as well as organized with the least effort put in.
The Epson FastFoto FF-640 is the ideal device to get rid of the tedious and time-consuming task of scanning. Right from photo alignment to colour enhancement, it does it all. One does not need to have the technical knowledge to use this scanner. A layman who just wishes to preserve his memories can easily use it. It is the perfect gadget to secure the past in a pleasing manner with minimum effort.
Well, if I am able to print out a photo, wouldn’t that suggest I also have the original digital file from which the photo was printed? Will it bend the photo’s during the scanning process? I don’t think it’s that great sort of invention, but oh at least, its cheaper than Kodak scanner.
