Summary: I received delivery in an unbelievable 21 hours! I had gone out and examined the Cannon 5000F before I placed the order with Amazon.com. I've installed it on Windows XP and am pleased beyond expectations. I primarily wanted it for film and slide copying.
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!
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.
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.
Summary: I Promise a brief review. +1 SCANS 35mm slides 2 at a time +1 scans 35mm negatives 3 at a time +1 makes seperate files of each item on the glass automatically +1 super fast photo scanner -1 takes about 2 minutes to scan a single slide at 300dpi Overall the price and picture quality beat the time it...
Summary: I didn't buy the Canon Canoscan 5000F from Amazon.com, but this was the place I checked for all the specs, and where I read the reviews. I have been very pleased with the 5000F. I bought it yesterday, and in three hours last night, I was able to scan in nearly 200 photos.
Summary: I purchased the scanner with a bit of apprehension, due to the price, and the disparity with other scanners. It seemed a wee bit costly -- not overly so, just a bit. Knowing that Canon is a good company, and knowing that poor scanners truly a horrible experience, I bit the bullet and bought it.
Summary: I was researching scanners for a long time and finally debated between the Epson 2400 and the Canoscan 5000F which cost about the same. The Epson 2450 Photo seemed to have better image quality but cost about twice as much, and the Canoscan 8000 is only a bit faster and allows you to scan more slides...
Waiting for the right scanner? The Canon 5000F is it!
19 December 2002
Summary: I waited months to purchase a scanner after a bad experience with a Visioneer product shortly after I switched to XP (home edition). Goodness, was it worth the wait! I purchased the Canon based on my excellent experiences with other product lines, and knowing that this was the next, XP-designed...
Summary: My father always told me I would never go wrong with a Canon. Canon has proven my father's point time and time again, and they don't fail to do so with the 5000c. I made the mistake of purchasing a lesser-name scanner to save myself [money].
