Presenting the Epson Perfection V300 PHOTO

I now am using the Epson Perfection V300 PHOTO since tuesday. And it looks and feels really good. Remember that I am using it with Ubuntu 9.10 and iScan application that I downloaded from AVASYS Japan (builds software for EPSON):

Here some more pics as a dia show. These are the first free pictures of this product in the internet!

I have used it mostly for scanning reversal films. You will have to first make a preview, then select one of the film images and then scan in high resolution. 4800 dpi is possible.

    Hi, I own an Epson Perfection V300 Photo and I am not able to use the “transparency unit”. Whenever I try to scan a negative film, iscan says “Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner’s status.”. scanimage says:

    scanimage: sane_read: Invalid argument
    # SANE data follows
    384 2885

    vuescan says nothing, but does not work.

    All of them work OK using normal documents or images, with flatbed.

    Any hint about how to make it work?

  2. if you do NOT use iScan, you need to install epkowa driver ( and add the line “epkowa” to /etc/sanel.d/dll.conf at least and add a “#” before the line that says “epson”.

    Also you need to remove the white thingy inside the lid (there the light will come from behind and you can park the film holder behind that after scanning ). Im pretty sure you can make it 😉 Read the manual.
