The Perfection 1250 Photo, new entry-scanner Epson has more than one trick up his sleeve. Indeed, for about 150 euros (990 francs), it has a maximum optical resolution of 1200 x 2400 dots per inch (dpi), with a color palette of 48-bit and above all of a module to scan slides and negatives. The facade of the Perfection 1250 Photo is adorned with four buttons that send the scanned document to the scanner driver, the printer, e-mail software or a website.
The scanning speed is quite high. Less than 25 seconds for a picture of 10 x 15 cm, high resolution 300 dpi, and a minute and a half in 600 dpi. An A4 page at 300 dpi is available in less than 50 seconds without activating the de-screening, otherwise we must add 3 minutes! A digital slide in 600 dpi takes less than 55 seconds and less than a minute and a half by 1200 dpi. The operation is slightly longer for color negative, but remains within an acceptable time.
Colors, contrasts and nuances proposed by the Perfection 1250 Photo is generally excellent. Even slides and negatives scanned at 1200 dpi offer a very good and made a more than respectable sharpness. The pilot has all options to edit slight defects of the original documents before scanning.
Finally, the Perfection 1250 Photo has significant assets that are high resolution transparent module scan quality and affordable price. Epson therefore renews its fine style entry.
