Amazing results, excellent workflow possible, high quality for such a low price

Jerry Loyd, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: Amazing results. I'm archiving a 55 year old collection of 35mm slides; the machine paid for itself after only 4 boxes of slides, compared to commercial services. The resulting images are so much better than I ever could have expected, and I did not mess around with adjustments or filters. It will do 4 slides at a time using a fixture they provide. I also ended up scanning in 3 rolls of negatives with another fixture, also provided - the results were also spectacular.

Not for negative scanning

Mudshark99, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this scanner to transfer film negatives to digital files. It does that....kind of. My complaint is about the film strip holder. It is flimsy and does not work well with old negatives like mine. I've had these film strips for 10 to 30 years. For the past 10 years or so they've been stored in archival preservation sheets and bound inn a 3-ring binder.

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.
