    Epson 10000 XL versus Epson V600

    The Epson 10000 XL is quite old compared to the V600 though with it's auto focusing ability, higher Dmax and larger scan bed would it be a better buy than a V600 for scanning a large photo collection? I can pickup a used 10000 XL for around the same price as a Epson V700.

    Thank you for your help.

    Do you need to scan beyond 8x10" ?

    If it is the case you need an A3 scanner, it looks that the 10000XL has drivers for windows 10, but ensure that...

    If you only require 8x10 I'd prefer the V800, you have a warranty, and a LED illumination that needs no pre-heating and starts scanning with no delay, also needs no calibration because it's very stable over the years.

    The V700/750/800/850 resolves a bit more than XL series, perhaps 2300dpi vs 2100 (optical)

    Both the XL series and the V series can do Multi-Exposure http://www.silverfast.com/highlights...e-list/en.html

    If multi-exposure is not included in your Silverfast version you can purchase that feature separately, it is useful for obtaining better detail in case of very deep shadows in velvia.

    The 10000XL is a great scanner. IF IF IF you can find one for a good price AND in good condition (it may need to be opened up and cleaned) it can make for a great scanner. Definitely better than a V600 and probably better than many V7xx at this point. The optics and build quality are a step above.

    Just got the 10000Xl is it the graphics edition. Scans look great! But I was wondering through the Epson software how do I turn on the auto focus?

    Thanks

    I have a scratch in the glass affecting the image. Can I get glass cut at a glass shop to replace the scanners glass?

    Yes, if you can find a place that can actually provide high quality float glass in the right thickness that is scratch free, nick free and bubble free. You need to be very clear with them upfront about the level of inspection they need to use. Most average glass shops are not used to inspecting at such a critical level, so be upfront in order to avoid disappointment.

    Does anybody know the dimensions of the glass as well as how to remove it? It looks like it is taped in there?
