It's like buying a new computer with XP loaded in!

Clay B., Newegg
23 March 2010
  • Summary: With so many who like and want to digitally scrapbook Canon has dropped the ball by not providing a program that allows you to easily do top quality scans, simple editing like take the red eye out, dust, scratches and ad tags for optimum way to organize.
  • Pros: I think it probably is a good scanner but unless you fork out more money and deal with host of compatibility issues you will not really be able to utilize it very well. I have learned to research the software that comes with scanners in the future.
  • Cons: Software is so out dated it makes the unit obsolete the day you receive it. No way to upgrade with bundled PSE 5.0. since there already is 6.0, 7.0 8.0 and 8.0 premium. MP Navigator is very limited and doesn't allow access to Scan Gear, only thru PSE 5.0. PSE doesn't have updates so sale recommen...

When buying to scan film, don't expect anything but 35mm format to work

J. Withrow, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: Overall, I'm pleased with the 8800F when scanning documents or photographs, but not pleased when trying to scan non-standards slides or film other than 35mm. My scanner was purchased from Amazon in Oct 2009.

Inconsistent slide scanner

Joseph M., Newegg
29 August 2009
  • Summary: Bought this scanner specifically for its slide/film scanning capability. Should have returned it, but missed the deadline.
  • Pros: Nice scanner for the money overall and works well for documents.
  • Cons: Slide and film scanning is spotty at best. Same slide will scan perfectly one time and be out of focus the next. I think there's something wrong with the scanner hardware, but Canon's customer service is so useless there's no way to figure it out.

Nice Idea, Lousy Execution

Cindy G., Newegg
9 June 2008
  • Summary: The first problem was clearly Canon's fault, dust simply should not be under the 'glass'. The second is also probably Canon's fault, as the unit was clearly 'New' in box, not an open box replacement. But it really sucks I'll have to spend another $20 to return this one again.
  • Pros: Fantastic feature set, LED technology is ideal for this purpose.
  • Cons: The first one Newegg sent me had dust under the platen surface, causing specks all through images, especially film. Newegg was good about the RMA, and sent me a new unit, although I did pay almost $20 to return it. The second one simply failed to operate at all. The power light came on, but no sc...

Nicht mehr zeitgemäß für Apple

Benjamin Walter, Amazon
23 November 2014
  • Summary: Ich schreibe hier nicht über den Scanner ansich, sondern über die Software bzw. die Treiber. Die beiliegenden CDs mit Treibern und Scanner Software "SilverFast" sind leider überhaupt nicht mehr zu gebrauchen, weil komplett veraltet.

Escroquerie!?

L. Jean, Amazon
12 February 2010
  • Summary: La qualité du scan lui-même semble correcte (je n'ai pas encore utilisé toutes ses fonctionnalités). Mais la suite logicielle livrée avec lui ne fonctionne pas sous Windows 7 64 bits. Ainsi le logiciel de reconnaissance de caractères n'est pas utilisable.

zopenhauer, Ciao
23 January 2008
  • Summary: Necesitaba un escaner para 6000 negativos que poseo. Este creí que cubriría mis espectativas, pero no Es bastante lento, en tres horas solo puedes hacer unas 60 fotos. Además he tenido problemas con el controlador TWAIN y noto a faltar una guía de ayuda tanto en el manual como por parte de...
