Needs to rest

K. E. Perrins "Kent", Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: Scans great!. However after 2 or 3 scans I get a black streak in the results and some parts of the scanned slide are missing. This happens if I do several scans before doing any editing, but if I spent some time doing the editing before scanning, the scans are okay. So, do not scan scan scan edit, instead do scan, edit, scan, edit, scan edit, etc.

Faster than my old one

ginnialee, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this scanner on reputation. I really haven't put it to use at this time but I intend to in the near future. I am looking forward to using the slide feature as well as old pictures. I build the catalogs for our business and scan all our own pictures. So for me personally I can only say that it scans but my nieghbor has one and is very pleased with its performance. I hope that I will be also.

Great scanner but beware of mechanical design issue

weltwind, Amazon
9 September 2009
  • Summary: Pros: great image quality, resolution, quick, and quiet. Cons: Mechanical longevity. After about 20 days of significant use over the course of an year, the glass platten came unglued. I was scanning mostly slides, film, and photos. No books, so no extra pressure/weight on the platten. Strangely, the platten is not supported by anything underneath - it is simply suspended from the plastic frame by glue.

Scanning multiple pictures

Yvonne Debesa, Amazon
26 May 2009
  • Summary: From description it seemed that a feeder would facilitate scanning multiple pictures at once. The process is limited to 4 on the flat bed. Saving as individual pictures is difficult. It could be the way I am scanning however I have not been able to download a friendly user manual to help me with the process.

No batch scanning of photographs above 600 dpi.

D. Boeck, Amazon
11 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this to archive a lot of photographs. The main reason I wanted this was its ability to batch scan (fill the platen and during the scan it automatically separates each picture in its own file). But, the software has a few issues. First, it will not batch-scan photographs above 600 dpi. If you have several small photographs that you want scanned at a higher resolution, you must scan 1 at a time.

Not too bad - software just a bit buggy

David Justh, Amazon
22 December 2008
  • Summary: Well worth it for $200. For the most part I'm loving it. MP Navigator software to capture images straightforwards. No real issues with OS X (10.4.11) Only complaints are that you can only scan 4 slides at a time and after scanning a few dozen images, there begins to appear black horizontal lines that run along the top and/or bottom of the images. Totally weird. Quitting the software and restarting the scanner helps only temporarily..

Great Scanner But Flimsy Removable Parts

A. Aston, Amazon
13 May 2008
  • Summary: I am getting great results from this scanner BUT the hook on the white platen that fits on the lid just snapped off on the first day with no out-of-the-norm action on my part. The negative holder is super-flimsy as well so I am giving it extra care. (Wish me luck - I'm about to call Canon.) The scans of 45-year-old negatives is really great - no complaints there.

Great speedy scanner!

  • Excerpt: The Canon CanoScan 8800f The canon CanoScan 8800f is a near perfect scanner. It is used in our school and after using it for recent Art coursework i was very impressed. It took around ten seconds to scan an A4 sheet, which is pretty quick in my opinion. The quality is also good. The colours come out well and although it was not perfect, it's hard to expect a perfect scan of a watercolour painting, as the colours were not bold.
  • Pros: Speed
  • Cons: Quality (Only a small disadvantage)

CanoScan 8800F

22 October 2008
  • Excerpt: 以前はEPSONの7200Uを使用していたのですが、老朽化による限界の為買い替え。 よって、7200Uとの比較になります。 見た目に関しては、デザイン云々よりむしろ「頑丈」「壊れ難そう」という印象を受けました。 わざわざ叩いたりはしませんが、何かの拍子に落としても平気なんじゃ?と思うぐらいですね。 スキャン速度に関しては文句はありません。 ストレス無く次々とスキャンできます。 解像度そのものは問題無いのですが、スキャンした際に画像の中心辺りを境に、 上と下で質感が変わってしまうのが問題です。(これは私のものだけかもしれません) 特にグレースケール時に顕著で、一枚の原稿をスキャンして上半分が灰色で下が白、 などということも…… ドライバに関しては、普通にPCを構う人間なら問題無いレベル。 ど初心者で大丈夫かと言われると疑問なので、この評価で。 サイズに関しては、とにかく「でかっ」という印象ですね。 スペース的には問題ですが、頼もしそうではあります。(笑) 速度的には7200Uとは比べ物になりませんが(そもそも世代が違うので当然)、...

CanoScan 8800F

22 October 2008
  • Excerpt: フィルムスキャンのために購入しました。スキャナ購入は初めてです。 ・解像度 9600dpiまで読み込めますし、用途によって使い分けられるのは良いですね。 ・機能性 本体ショートカットボタンからフィルムスキャン(ドライバ起動)まで1アクションで出来るのが楽。 自分好みに多少カスタマイズ出来るのは使いやすい。 ・ドライバ 画像の選択が2種類あってよくわからない…。 ディスプレイサイズが小さいせいか、レイアウトが崩れ気味でやや見にくい。。 ・付属ソフト 簡単な編集や修正が出来るので、面白い。 ドライバと機能がかぶっている(?)ところがあって、スキャンした画像が自動的に保存される場合と付属ソフトで保存しなければならない場合の2通りあって、ちょっとわかりにくい。デフォルトの画像保存場所を違うところに指定していると、さらに迷う。。 ・サイズ ほぼフィルムスキャンのみの使用なので、もう少し小さいと嬉しかった。 それと、フィルムスキャン時にフィルムを2本ごと入れることが出来るが...
