A solid Scanner

Crusader, Canon
30 December 2013
  • Conclusion: I got the Canoscan specifically to scan slides and negatives from my film camera days. It really delivers the goods. My only gripe is that it only handles 35mm film (only the 9000 model handles medium format). I knew that going in, but I don't think it'd be a big deal for Canon to include the capability at this price point. Satisfaction I downgraded because the scanner driver install interfered with my printer drivers and I had to reinstall them on all my computers.
  • Pros: High resolution, easy to use

Bought for scanning film and slides

Jess, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Pros: It does a good job of scanning my old film and slides, and is also capable of scanning photos, documents, etc. It has buttons on the scanner itself to generate pdfs. Cons: The software works with Windows 7 but it felt like it was designed back in the Windows XP days. If you scan at a high resolution (2400dpi) for film or slides it takes about 7 minutes for one filmstrip with 5 images to be scanned. I just set an egg timer.

A Magical Machine

mjb, Canon
10 November 2013
  • Conclusion: I love, love, love this scanner! So easy to install and easy to use. The best part is, I can put multiple photos on the scanner bed at one time. The scanner detects and scans each separately and automatically, all in under a minute. They all pop up on my screen and then can be saved to a folder of your choice or edited with the included software. My life just got 100 times easier!!
  • Pros: Fast Connectivity, High resolution, High-speed scanning, easy to use

Excellent Results, Lousy Software

M. Johnston, Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: When opening the box and looking at this scanner for the very first time, the feeling of deja vu I had was inescapable. I thought for sure that 1998 would soon be calling, asking for its scanner back. This is one big, honking device - far too large to leave on my desk over the long run. Once my scanning project is completed, this will be going in the closet or on eBay.

econimical scanner

1492tc, Canon
3 November 2013
  • Conclusion: I found about 1000 slides in an old box out in the garage. Also a bunch of old black and white pictures and negatives. All these things are almost 50 years old. Since I no longer have the slide projector or any darkroom equipment , I wanted a way to view and save these images on my computer. After searching on line through several sources I decided on the Cano Scan 5600F. The price is reasonable and the specifications fit my needs perfectly.
  • Pros: durable, Fast Connectivity, easy to use

Specifications Greatly Overstate Actual Capabilities

  • Summary: This equipment is seriously misrepresented by Canon. Poor resolution far below the 9600 dpi promised. Scans were of very low quality. This scanner was returned to Amazon.

Doesn't work with MAC OS X 10.8.4

Benjamin Brownlee, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: Keeps saying "searching for scanner" and then the program is unresponsive. I have updated all the software and drivers from the website and still have this problem. I have bootcamp and it works fine on the windows side but I really need it to work on the mac side.

Very happy.

electron, Canon
6 October 2013
  • Conclusion: I cannot remember how many photos I `ve scanned from old family pictures. Add to that, 33 reels of slides. But I`ve found out I can `fudge` old negatives by laying them on the opening for slides and scanning 35mm worth of them. So far I`ve brought back images from as far back as the `30`. Some look like they were taken yesterday! So by accident, Canon has added another feature to this wonderful scanner! Thanks!
  • Pros: durable, High resolution, easy to use, negative scanning
  • Cons: Large Footprint

Didn't work

Bruno J. Bischoff, Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: Got the scanner, tried and tried to get it to work and it wouldn't. Shipped it back to Amazon and replaced it with a Canon 9000F and was totally impressed with that scanner, terrific clarity and color, using it to scan in over 5,000 35mm color negatives.

Easy to set up

  • Conclusion: Our IT director bought this brand new and then our office went to tiny scanners so I got this for the very good price of freeeee. It didn't come with a disk so I was easily able to download the driver on Canon's site (needs the driver installed first I found out, hey I'm still learning here). As soon as I did that and then plugged the unit in it was asking what I wanted to do! And away I went scanning like a fiend. Being able to access the manual online is a total plus.
  • Pros: Fast Connectivity, High resolution, High-speed scanning, easy to use
  • Cons: unit is big
