Slides/Negatives Flatbed Scanners

 

Small Negatives Flatbed: #39

Technical Name: Epson Perfection v750 Pro Scanner

Maximum Size Document: 8.5’’ x 11’’

Highest Real Resolution: 2400 DPI

Recommended Resolution: 1200 DPI

This scanner has the ability to apply color restoration to slides when scanning. This makes the colors on the digital image reflect more of the true colors of the image, and removes the red or blue tint slides often have.  Due to the editing abilities this scanner has, it will take about 1 min 20 seconds per slide at the recommended DPI. This scanner is recommended for any slides that need to be printed. This scanner can also scan negatives. You will need to bring a USB to save your scans.

"BYU access" means that the item is accessible on BYU campus or remotely for logged-in BYU students and faculty. If labeled “BYU campus” then it is available anywhere on BYU campus, but not remotely. "BYU Library" indicates that you may only access the resource while physically at the BYU Library. (If you have a personal account with any of these sites, you can access them anywhere. If so, it is best to access them directly rather than using these links.)

*FamilySearch is accessiable anywhere on the Internet, but many of the images (ca. 25-30%) require viewing at a FamilySearch family history center. BYU Library is also designated as a family history center allowing access to these images.
