Summary: The scanner scans 12 35mm negitives at a time, you can set the dpi different for each one! 1200 dpi is about a min. for each pic higher dpi is about 5 min. for each pic. if you put 110 film in there and manually line it up as strait as possible you can select each pic seperatley with a select tool...
Summary: its a cool scanner. it works well with color and bandwhite, with 120 and 35. since i live in argentina, i was a little feared if it would be delivered ok but it was perfectly in the box and with the documents.
Summary: Good News, Bad News. I purchased this scanner based on numerous positive reviews. I was looking primarily for a negative/slide scanner, but I did not want to lay out the bucks for a dedicated slide scanner.
Summary: The Canon Canoscan 8800f is an excellent scanner for film and photos. That said, do not believe the printed literature for the included items. The package supposedly contains a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements.

I have ended up with 2400 dpi (4800 doesn't add any detail to my scans) high dust removal (doesn't detract from the scans) and the unsharpen filter ON (though...
Summary: OK its been awhile since I bought a new scanner Last one was a Microtek 3700 but it worked fine.. until I decide to go "into production". The speed and capability of this Canon is a great step up. Primarily I have been wanting to digitize pictures and slides from years past.
Summary: I, too, had the appearance of dust on the scanned images. It occurred no matter where I placed the photo. I tried every possible setting then began the "e-mail customer service" ordeal. Each reply was pleasant but useless boilerplate.
