VueScan works with the Epson Perfection V500 on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
This scanner has an infrared lamp for scanning film. VueScan's 'Filter | Infrared clean' option can be used to remove dust spots from film scans. This is similar to (and we think better than) the ICE and FARE algorithms.
It scans with visible light in the first pass and with infrared light in the second pass.
Infrared cleaning works well with all types of color negative and color slide film, including Kodachrome. However, silver-based black/white film doesn't work with infrared cleaning because the silver particles look the same in visible light and infrared light.
You need to install an Epson scanner driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X.
You need to install an Epson Linux scanner driver to use this scanner on Linux.
Epson sold this scanner in some countries as the GT-X770.
If you have an iPad, iPhone, Android phone/tablet or Kindle Fire, you can use VueScan Mobile with WiFi scanners or the built-in camera to scan documents.
