Never finished this deal, so I don't know for sure.

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: 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.
Summary: Canon CanoScan 4400F Color Image Scanner (1306B002) This is a great scanner for the money, but you need to be realistic about what you're getting. If you're going to do some occasional scanning -- especially of slides or film -- you'll be OK. It's not robust enough to use professionally. If you're planning on taking 40 years worth of family slides (weddings, vacations, baby pix, etc.) and digitizing them -- you better have a lot of patience.
Summary: I bought this scanner for scanning several old negatives. Although it serves the purpose, the performance is poor. It is extremely slow. The parts to load the negatives is a cheapy plastic. It does not snatch properly when negatives are loaded. It is painful to load negative roll with 4 frames and leaving the remaining two as empty. The software that comes with the scanner is ok. Installation was awful...
Summary: I bought this scanner/copier to make ~2000 images of photos (prints and/or slides of original paintings) to link to corresponding records in a database. I use Corel Paintshop Pro instead of the image-processing software provided, but have no reason to think the latter is inferior. The scanner works, and the images of both 35-mm slides and 4x6-inch prints are pretty good. It scans up to 4 slides in one batch, but prints go one at a time, with useful automatic cropping.
Canon need to rethink this scanner to make it truly excellent

Excerpt: 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...
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.
Summary: Es ist bereits mein drittes Gerät dieses Typs, weil ich täglich sehr viel scanne, vor allem Negativ-Filmstreifen und Dias. Nach einer gewissen Zeit, bei mir nach ca. 18 Monaten, entsteht ein dünner rosa Strich über die gescannte Länge der Negative oder Dias und das Gerät ist nicht mehr verwendbar. Generell sind meine Erfahrungen: Bei Papiervorlagen ist das Scan-Ergebnis hervorragend.
