New scanners from Epson the V900 and V950

Rumours Posted on Sun, January 11, 2009 15:44:59

Rumors says that the now outdated Epson Perfection V700/V750 (introduced mid 2006)
will be replaced shortly.

The new model is assumed to be called V900, I guess that we will see a V950 to
that will have similar upgraded software and optical path that the V750 to make it a slightly better performer than V700 :0)

What can we expect from this new Epson scanner?
Except for being the new top of the line flatbed/filmscanner from Epson
We might expect.
1. Real resolution to be closer to the stated theoretical resolution.
2. Better lenses (Dual).
3. LED light source for quicker warm up (The V500 already have this).
4. Glassless scanning (To compete with Microtek M1/F1).
5. Autofocus (To compete with Microtek M1/F1).
6. Updated software and even better digital ICE.
7. Lower price tag than the Epson Perfection V700/V750 (All electronics get better and cheaper)

Will I review it?
YES, this is the one that I have waited for I will get one A.S.A.P and I will review
it in my own special way with tweaks and everything just to make sure to squeeze
every possible quality from this machinesmiley

Ken Rockwell and Nikon D3x

Seen and heard Posted on Sun, January 11, 2009 00:07:22

OK!
Most people interested in photograpy and photography gear have heard of
Ken Rockwell, this man makes people use words that should never have been used.

Recently he took the initiative of a boycott of the new Nikon D3x due to the way
Nikon try to rob photographers on there money…
“The D3X wins, but I wouldn’t
actually buy one unless you have money to earn with it right now. The
price will undoubtedly come down as a result of the boycott, and even
if you do break the boycott and buy one, when the d700x comes out, you’re going to want one instead for its better handing, design, size and weight.”

Anyhow Ken has now broken the boycott himself due to heavy requests for a review
from his readers :0)
