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.
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.
Summary: Photo scanning: Quality is very low. We can see the "paper texture". Negative scanning: Too much on the blue side. Even with "auto calibration", all scans turns out blueish. Quality is soso. Software: One of the worst software package.
Good for scanning slide, BUT....Moisture Stamp under glasses
3 July 2003
Summary: I got this one two weeks ago. I was using it to scan my slides. Software and Hardware are pretty easy to use and scanning quality is good too. I was happy to have it... BUT... I found there is a big Moisture Stamp under glasses last night ! I will return it today.
Summary: War gebraucht und als gut angeboten.Nahc Erhalt angeschlossen und ausprobiert. Ergebnis: nicht zufriedenstellend,weil das weiße Blatt mit gelblichem Schimmer gedruckt wurde nach dem Einscannen.
