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: 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.
Summary: I've now had this CanoScan 8800F Canon CanoScan 8800F Color Film/Negative/Photo Scanner (2168B002) for a bit over a month. It was purchased to replace an Epson scanner that had begun to fail. This Canon has been working very well for me for scanning both photos and documents.
Summary: (Updated 1/28/2012) I have scanned approximately 2500 slides with the Canon 8800F. The scan results are adequate for my slides, but I am not as enthusiastic about this scanner as some of the reviewers. It is way too slow for a large job when the scan is at 3200 dpi.
Summary: I bought one for scanning negatives. I think it is great. All the various options and settings took a bunch of experimentation to sort out. 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.
