Love it, best bang for the buck!

  • Summary: I had a canon 8400 and the power supply died. This one was one up newer model. It arrived well packaged and operates exactly as my old one. It has more resolution and functions very well for me. I scan mostly black and white copy, but when I scan a photo the output from it is superb. I am very well satisfied with this item. So far this is the best scanner I have owned of a total of three others, all canons.

Great scanner, poor software.

  • Summary: Love the scanner, the optical quality is great. I don't like the bundled software, as it doesn't allow for multiple scanners to be hooked up at the same time. However, using the Canoscan 8600 and the Canoscan 600F scanners with Photoshop CS4 (Mac) works great.

Performance excellence

  • Summary: I bought this scanner because I have a lot of old photos to add to iPhoto. Consumers Report said it was the top of the photo scanner list. They didn't lie. I use an iMac and the resolution on old photos is spectacular. Literally no loss of resolution and no grainy-ness or yellowing you see on cheap scanners. It has easy buttons on the scanner so you don't need to get into the app to scan or copy. Cons- It's a bit large and takes up space on your work station.

Everything expected and more.

  • Summary: I've used the scanner for photos, negatives, and slides and found the results to be outstanding. I especially like the ability provided by the canon software to correct the image before scanning. Many of my old color photos have faded and the fade correction adjustment prior to scanning did a better job correcting this than any of my photo program.

Great Value in a Scanner

Keith R. Kluge, Amazon
7 August 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the CanoScan CS8600F for the main purpose of making digital copies of color slides, as well as black and white negatives. So far, I have been greatly impressed by high resolution scans that are obtained using this device. I have printed several 8x10 black and white enlargements from the scans of negatives and found the sharpness of the picture to be remarkable. The bundled software is top rate with many great features.

CanoScan does not do what Canon literature says

DK, Amazon
7 August 2008
  • Summary: I bought this scanner to digitize about 500 old 127 format film slides which had faded over the years. The Canon product literature clearly states that this scanner will accept these slides. Well, the literature is incorrect, and the Canon tecnical representative admitted, to his surprise, that there was an error.

Best scanner I have owned!!!!!!!

enviro, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: Only have the unit for a week or so. I upgraded to it to do a family archive of pictures and negatives going back to the late 1800's. So far it is performing better than I expected. It is not as fast as my Epson 1660 but has far greater dpi which may be the reason. For me the extra few seconds do not make a difference. The Adobe software Elements 5.5 that comes with it is great and would cost $99.00 by itself.

Restored slides

Bill "Amature photographer", Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: I looked at a number of scanning devices, and features offered by the CanoScan appealed to me. I had never used a scanner, but I wanted to put some slides on disks, and I found that a number I had taken some 40 years ago had faded and turned pink. I wasn't too hopeful, but I put in some of the worst slides, and I was totally amazed by the results. Pictures of sea and sky were restord beyond belief.

All I can say is WOW!

Richard Toner, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought this product for my wife to replace an old scanner. The pre-scan time is lightning fast. The quality of the scans are HUGE and clean. We have started to scan some negatives and they are some what slower but the quality is better then any picture can scan in. It is the best scanner I have seen on the market and I would recommend it to anyone. Also it comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4. That software runs for $99 by it's self.

One fast scanner

Harold Guthrie, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: I had the 8400F at home and was pleased with it, so I bought the 8600F for work when I needed to scan in a bunch of graphics. For this job, I found it to be a really fast scanner. Both the preview and the final scan of the color graphics were speedy. Sorry, but I did not use the scanner to scan negatives, so I cannot comment on that. You can tell more about a company when something goes wrong than when everything goes right.
