Modern technology gives us many things.

Epson’s new FastFoto scanner can digitise albums of photos in seconds


There are still a lot of people who have old photo albums full of pictures so Epson has created FastFoto FF-680W – the world’s fastest personal photo scanner which can handle one photo per second at 300 dpi with up to 36 photos per batch.

The FastFoto High Speed Photo and Document Scanning System has Wi-Fi connectivity and can convert albums full of photos into digital files in seconds.

It can handle various media types and sizes including postcards, panoramic photos and Polaroids.

And the photos don’t even have to be straight as they’re going through the scanner.

It can also capture both the image and any hand written notes on the back in a single scan.

And not only does the device scan your images, it also enhances all the photos as well and allows users to organise the images into files.

With the Easy Auto Upload feature, FastFoto also makes it easy to share images to cloud storage solutions including Dropbox and Google Drive.

It is also a document scanner so you can have digital copies of all your important files, receipts, contracts and other important documents.

It even has a built-in Nuance OmniPage Optical Character Recognition (OCR) which can turn scanned documents into editable Word and Excel files.

“There was clearly a need for an ultra-fast and easy scanning solution that enabled people to digitise hard copy photos often stored in albums or boxes and vulnerable to many kinds of irreversible damage,” says Bruce Bealby, general manager sales and marketing for Epson Australia’s consumer division.

“The new FastFoto FF-680W not only saves these photos but also comes with a host of new features making it easier to save and bring memories back to life using the latest digital technology.”

The Epson FastFoto FF-680W is available now at all good Epson resellers and retailers and is priced at $799.
