Excerpt: I have run thru scanning pictures, docs, and 35 negs. I had a canon that stood on a easel and had film negative scanner attachment with it. I love it, but it became outdated with my desk to back in or around 2002.
Excerpt: I've been looking for 20 years for a quality slide scanner to copy my 4000 family slides. The Canon 5600F has been amazing! Scanning through Photoshop at 2600dpi, I have been able to revive old faded photos to nearly perfect condition.
Excerpt: 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).
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Fast Connectivity, High resolution, High-speed scanning, easy to use
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.
Excerpt: 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.
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.
Excerpt: 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`.
Pros: durable, High resolution, easy to use, negative scanning
