Epson FastFoto fast photo scanner now here

Epson Australia has launched its FastFoto FF-680W high-speed photo and document scanner in Australia with an RRP of $799.

Epson characterises the FF-680W as ‘the world’s fastest personal photo scanner’. It will scan up to 36 photos per batch at 300dpi ‘as fast as’ one photo per second. Scanning at the optical limit of 600dpi will take considerably longer, although Epson doesn’t provide hard data on high-res scanning.
