In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at two reviews of Epson's V850 scanner, Terry White running Photoshop 1.0 and using a vignette to highlight your subject.

  • Have we hit the wall for desktop scanners? In The Epson V850 Pro Scanner in Context, Mark Segal puts it up against the older Epson V750, Plustek OpticFilm 120, Nikon 5000, Nikon 9000, Imacon and Minolta 5400. "It's overall performance is similar to that of the V750, except that it's faster and the film holders are more robust; people who already use a V750 would see no other advantage up-grading to the V850."
  • Keith Cooper has also published his heavily illustrated Review of Epson V850 film scanner.
  • Terry White's Adobe Photoshop Turns 25 includes a 20-minute demo of using Photoshop 1.0 under System 7:
