Works with Linux!

Lincoln B., Newegg
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I don't pay the Microsoft tax, and I find Linux to be a far superior OS to Windoze. I selected this product after searching the SANE supported scanner database. It did not work on Ubuntu out of the box (most things that are supported do.
  • Pros: 100% supported on Linux. I purchased elsewhere, but decided to post a review here because I use Newegg a lot, and I like it when reviews provide this information. I would have purchased here had newegg been more competitive.
  • Cons: Canon does not support Linux. (I hate buying stuff from vendors who don't). This is the reason for 4 stars not 5.

Cannon 8800F scanner

Milton F., Newegg
15 August 2010
  • Summary: If you are using Windows Seven, I don't recommend purchasing this scanner.
  • Pros: Great resolution, rapid scanning rate
  • Cons: Some of the supplied software is not compatible with Windows Seven. When I went to a website to upgrade,rather than supplying me with an upgrade to download, they offered to sell me an upgrade.

I trust Canon

Terence B., Newegg
17 July 2010
  • Summary: Great features and great software package. If you already have Photoshop CSx then you'll probably not need the essentials but the other software that comes with it is complete.
  • Pros: My 2nd Canon Scanner. My first was the 5000F and it was great too. Turn it on and it's ready too scan and it's fast in preview mode. I scan what becomes very large photos and this scanner does a great job at doing it. Great quality and specs (White Light technology). You can't go wrong with this ...
  • Cons: You have to manually turn it off.

Wish Canon made a dedicated film scanner

Mr. N., Newegg
23 April 2010
  • Summary: I am a semi pro photographer, married to all of the Canon line and I needed a high quality film scanner for all my old photos. Too bad this is the best Canon can offer.
  • Pros: Extremely economical, very fast and reliable. No warm up time.
  • Cons: Scans a bit soft. This is because the negative is not directly in contact with the scanning surface and there is no focusing option. Also no raw output option. Unnecessarily bulky if the only feature you need is film scanning.

Got the Job Done!

DH, Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the CanoScan 8800F to scan in a multitude of 35mm slides and film negatives that I wanted to share with family for Christmas. It did a fine job, averaging about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes per image at 2600 dpi (or in that range).

It only scans four 35mm slides at a time

Tim Z., Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: Have owned this scanner for several years and it does work well and have never had an issue. It comes with negative adapters for various size slides and negatives. It works really well on those old slides. On photographs for some reason I don't see a good color representation.

  • Summary: Needed it because the old one would not work with Windows 7 . Kind of sneaky for Cannon to let their scanners go obsolete so you have to buy a new one.

a very nice scanner

Randall Kelley, Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: I have never regretted this purchase. Makes good high quality scans. The "no warm up" is a very nice feature. Never have been able to figure out how to get it to do a direct scan to printer (like a copy machine) does a very reasonable job scanning film and slides auto separation of multiple objects...
