Never been able to get it to work

blue_musicman, Ebay
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I have had one of these scanners from new. It was very expensive at the time. I have never ever been able to make it work.I have tried downloading drivers and it just opens ADOBE IMAGE READY or Canon tool box. Total waste of money so far as I am concerned.

Far Exceeded My Expectations!

  • Summary: You can still get this scanner new at eBay or at some camera places. I got it solely because I wanted a film scanner, but could not afford a "real" one. Flatbed scanners are considered inferior for such things. Well, if this scanner is making inferior scans of negatives or slides, I can't tell! I think they are wonderful. It even has the FARE system, which is usually found on more expensive models.

Great for slide & platen scanning, weird reboot problem

RON IN USA "Ron USA", Amazon
6 March 2004
  • Summary: Bad qualities: As the buyer from CA (Jan 11, 2004) stated, the power must be cycled on this scanner from time to time. Save your scans frequently, because after ten scans or so - the software may give error codes & hang. After reading the documentation & checking Canon's web site, I've found nothing that remedies this problem. Good qualities: The scanner is great for the price range it retails in. I highly recommend it for slide scanning & platen images.

Everything I Hoped For

tcn, Amazon
16 February 2004
  • Summary: I was able to set up the scanner with no difficulty on my 2.4GHz/512MB P4 system. It took about 20 minutes I guess to install the software and plug in the scanner. I have used the scanner primarily for photos. The multi-scan mode is GREAT. I have scanned 4 pictures at a time and they are put into 4 separate files. That's a huge time saver, and it works EVERY time for me despite what the editorial review said. I would never buy a scanner without multi-scan mode.

Scanner Reset & Computer reboot

tcn, Amazon
11 January 2004
  • Summary: This scanner is great. Only thing I am not happy is that after around every 10 scanning (photo or negative)It locks out and asks to off & on the scanner. Then after around every 20 scans, it lockscompletely up and have to reboot the pc no two ways about it. I have Sony Vaio Digital Studio. If any body has any suggestion for this improvement please write to me Pooran9412@yahoo.com Other wise the quality is great.

Excellent Scanner, Excellent Quality

Pro Photog & Cartoonist, Amazon
3 January 2004
  • Summary: The Canon 5000F scanner provides high quality scans at a reasonable price. Being a professional photographer and newspaper cartoonist for 15 years, I've worked with numerous scanner models ranging from HP and Epson to even Microtek units. Yet, for the price, Canon outperforms them all with a "print-perfect" optical resolution of 2400x4800 dpi. I mostly use the scanner for digitalizing my artwork at a resolution of 1200dpi at an output scale of 100%.

Spots on image

"nickname12", Amazon
29 December 2003
  • Summary: Hello, I purchased this for christmas 2003. Right out of the box I had the same problem as "wshiii from Philadelphia, PA" The glass was dirty on both sides and all the images (no matter what the resolution) had white spots all over them. I will call canon tonight to see what they can do.

Look elseware for a quality scanner.

Bill H., Amazon
14 December 2003
  • Summary: I have been extremely disappointed by this scanner. I bought it new a few months ago, but found that little spots appear on scanned photos for 600dpi and higher. I've cleaned the scan bed and photos. The problem appears to be on the other side of the glass. To get half-way decent scans, you have to hunt for the area of the scan bed with the fewest marks. Cannon sent me a replacement (referb.) which has the same problem but to a lesser degree.
