View Full Version : Epson 700 scanner problem
Actually it is an epson gt-x900 the Japanese version of the v 700.
The problem is whenever I have a neg with large dark areas the scanner scans the film as a panorama shot. The instructions are in Japanese and I don't see any mention of how to fix this anyway.
Anyone have any Ideas?
The auto cropping function in the software is easily fooled. Most people do not rely on this. Those who do would probably be amazed if they went back and carefully compared there films to their scans because they would find parts missing. In EpsonScan you need to go into Professional mode, click on the arrow to the right of Preview, choose normal, re-preview, than manually crop. If you want detailed instructions on how to set up a manual batch scan in EpsonScan, I have put some tips up here:
I have exactly the same problem with my nightshots (and, strangely, some day shots too).
The Japanese epson scan has a different set up and it seems impossible to disable the auto crop
I've been tempted by this scanner, but I'm surprised to see that this error is still commonplace with their software.
The option has to be in the software somewhere. You just need to get one of your Japanese techie friends to come over and help you figure out where it is ;) Can you post a screenshot of the Professional, or most advanced, mode of the software that has the most options to tweak?
I've got a bunch of work to finish, but I'll try to post within a day or two. I'm sure you are correct about this, the pro mode is the only mode I use, but there is no arrow to the right of preview as there is on the English version, but there must be some way to disable the auto trimming.
xvvvz, I can't find the arrow in my (English UK) Epsonscan either...
What version are you using?
If you're using it on a Mac, there's no arrow, you need to uncheck the Thumbnail checkbox instead (I think it says Thumbnail, I don't have the software to hand at the moment). You then use the marquee tool in the preview window to manually set a cropping area.
Found it! It's a checkbox titled 'Thumbnails' under the 'preview' button. Unclicked you are presented with a scan of the whole scanning area, allowing you to mark out each frame.
Very slow as it goes and scans every time you zoom in to crop properly, but hey, better than nothing.
Got me thinking, this would make scanning panoramics super easy.
Sorry, I should have mentioned my instructions were for Windows but it sounds like you found what you needed!
Huumm I've got windows, but there is a box for thumbnails, it works as Kully said, Thanks for the tip.
