Epson XP-830 Scanning photographic negatives

May 23, 2019

I wish to scan some old photographic negatives in the scanner in my XP-830. Unfortunately the user manual ignores this topic. The "professional mode" in the Epson Scan app does allow you to choose a Document Type = "film" but unfortunately for me it stays greyed out and cannot be selected. I am running Windows 10 Pro 1809

Of course I've already searched on the web and could find nothing that is specific to my printer/scanner, though clearly other Epson scanners do have this functionality.

Has anyone successfully used the Epson XP-830 to scan photographic negatives and if you did, how did you do it?

Many thanks
