    New Epson V800, V850 flatbed scanners

    Looks as though the only substantive change is in the holders:

    I've been going to buy a 750 for some time now, but kept putting it off. For once, procrastination paid off.

    No 5x7 and no 8x10, or just no holders for those films, I wonder. Can't tell from the announcements.

    ...and faster warm up time of less than one second using LED's.

    The height adjustment may be worth it. That might eliminate the need for something like the betterscanning solution.

    Possibly. I bought and still use the BS 617 holder, but sold the 45x BS holder because my V700 holder happens to be just as good.

    Sorry! I deleted my post!

    In the article it does suggest better holders with AN glass. I'd be curious to see what they are like.

    It'll be interesting to see the reviews. Could be a good time to buy a 750 or 700. I'm wondering about just how much better the scans will be from the updated machines?

    I really hope the new holders can be used on the old scanners.

    Nice! So film/photo scanning is becoming or having enough interest for Epson to launch new scanners! :-)

    I find the dual lens bit interesting but is it different from the previous Epsons?
