Never finished this deal, so I don't know for sure.
6 April 2013
Summary: When it comes down to it, this product & I never did cross paths. I ordered the wrong item & it was all squashed shortly thereafter. It looked like a decent product & if I had actually purchased it, I believe I would have been happy with it. Sorry that I could not help more.
Summary: Scan quality is good but I estimate I can do about 40-50 slides an hour if I'm lucky.
Slide holder is delicate and will eventually break. It would be nice to buy a couple extra film/slide guides for loading while a set is scanning and to prepare for breakage. But you cant buy them.
Also no on off switch?! Come on.
I would have gone with the 8800 or a better slide/film converter solution had I better investigated.
Summary: Once you can get the scanner to function it is very fast and produces excellent quality images whether just saving on computer or copying. Even color copies are terrific quality images. However, when I first put any type document in scanner and select function, error message says "Unable To Scan. Make Sure That There Is Enough Space On The Target Disk." It does this even when all you select is "Copy" Manual does not provide solution that resolves issue.
Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: This product is a good first scanner for a hobbyist who wants to begin scanning images into various projects. I can only give it three stars,however, because the attachment that permits scanning slides and negatives, which is of considerable importance to me, is poorly designed. This was my second scanner. The first was a second generation model from another manufacturer and it performed the slide/negative scanning in a far superior manner.
Canon Canoscan 4400F: Excellent speed and quality of scan
23 May 2007
Summary: I ordered this scanner on the internet and having been unable to examine it in any retail outlet . I had read good reviews on it and given it was a Canon product was relatively inexpensive and would scan slides it was ordered. Sadly while it certainly is very fast and produces excellent scanning results on documents and photographs its a whole different matter when it comes to the slide magazine :- 1) this will not accomodate AGFA plastic slide mounts as they are...
Pros: will scan thick books
Cons: Slide magazine is flimsy and will not take AGFA slides
Conclusion: Köpte scannern begagnad för ett år sedan för 300 kr. Drivrutiner för både Windows 7 (x64) och Mac OSX finns att hitta på nätet.
Med en bättre programvara (kör OmniPage från Nuance i Windows 7) fungerar den riktigt bra!
Tyvärr är den hemskt långsam vilket drar ner betyget, man kan nästan gå och fika mellan scanningarna. Stor är den också, den hade kunnat vara betydligt tunnare.
Har aldrig testat negativscanning, så jag kan inte uttala mig om denna.
