Summary: I use me CanoScan to put my slides on my computer and on CDs. My slides are 39 years old and I didn't think the color would be very good but you can't tell the difference from the picture that I take with my digital camera. I can take out red eye and enhance them. It was going to cost me an arm and leg to get then done at a store and this was sooo much cheaper. It is very easy to use.
Summary: Scanning old color negatives from when the kids were little - so much better resolution than scanning the prints, which I have done in the past. Takes about a half hour to scan a roll of 24 shots. easy to use and am so happy with it!
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
Summary: This product is justifiably regarded as a best buy by Consumer Reports. As always, I found all of their observations and assessments to be correct. I bought this scanner to digitize a few thousand of my father's 35mm slides, many of them over 50 years old. The results exceeded my expectations. At four slides per scan, it took a few days, but I think I've already gotten my $90 worth.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews about a lot of scanners and liked what I read about the CanoScan 4400F. I have years of only 35mm slides and wanted to save them digitally. While the scanner is downloading, I sort through for the next 4 slides. The software helps me fix some of those old slides so that they look almost as good as new. Most of the pictures I want to save are people shots, so I am thrilled to be able to preserve many years of memories.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software

Summary: I have been toting around a shoebox of my dad's slides since he passed away. There are about 500 Kodachrome transparencies of family vacations, army photos, and all us kids at Easter and Christmas. Even without cleaning the slides, I am completely amazed at how good these are coming out! I was only able to see these in one of those little slide boxes you held up to the light--until today.
