Epson America today introduced the FastFoto FF-640 high-speed photo scanning system designed to change the way people preserve and share the billions of photos tucked away in attics, basements, garages, and closets. An innovative alternative to flatbed scanners and costly third-party scan services, FastFoto can scan photos as fast as one photo per second and restores faded photos to their original color to share with family and friends via the cloud and on social media.

“Whether it’s for a Throwback Thursday, a photo slideshow for graduation, a wedding, or another life event, before today, digitizing photographs with a flatbed scanner or scanning service has been a time consuming and expensive task,” said Larry Trevarthen, director, Commercial Printing and Scanning, Epson America, Inc. “Scanning shoeboxes of photos on a flatbed scanner can take hundreds of hours, and sending photos out to a scanning service is pricey and puts irreplaceable photos at risk of being lost or damaged. FastFoto offers a fast, easy and affordable solution for preserving a family’s legacy.”

Featuring a 30-photo auto feeder, FastFoto scans photos to a designated hard drive, and offers tools to support easy uploading to services such as Facebook, Dropbox and Google Drive to share with family and friends anytime, anywhere. Unlike most scanning solutions, FastFoto scans both the front and back of photos and postcards in a single pass, capturing valuable dates and personal handwritten notes. Epson’s scanning software also features a unique naming system to organize photo collections with recognizable file and folder names, searchable metadata, and a capture date that aligns with the date of the photo, not the date the image was scanned.

FastFoto Photo Restoration and Editing Capabilities

FastFoto was custom-designed to handle all the details. With just one click, Smart Photo Fix (SPF) Technology automatically brings new life to old photos with color restoration for faded photos, red-eye reduction and auto enhancement features. The scanner is designed to handle precious memories with Dynamic Skew Correction (DSC) and a sophisticated multi-roller paper feed design to automatically correct the angle at which a photo or document enters the scanner. FastFoto also includes a special handling sheet to protect small, old, damaged, or fragile photos, while the Ultrasonic Sensor allows Double Feed Detection to help avoid missing any photos or mis-feeds, and Auto Size Detection makes it easy to scan multiple sizes in a single stack.
