  • 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 and fit over 20 at a time. its not a fast process but it works ok!

  • Summary: This scanner is fantastic. I just got it as an early birthday present from my wondeful wife and parents and it's been a spectacular gift - as another reviewer has noted, "far exceeding my expectations." I had planned on getting this scanner initially, but ended up getting an HP G4050 because it could scan 4x5 negatives (this one does not). I regretted the G4050 decision as soon as I tried it out: because it does NOT truly work with Windows Vista (the 8800F does).

Canon CanoScan 8800F

Rene, Amazon
26 April 2010
  • 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. I actually would have considered one of the higher-end Epsons, like the V500, but I was sold on the LED illumination and quickstart capabilities of the 8800F.

Great 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. What it doesn't tell you is the included version is 10.4 which is at least five years old and is no longer supported by Adobe. This version will not work on the latest MAC OS. If you call Canon the answer is, "tough luck", there is nothing they will do.

Works well for me

  • 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. I am not particularly impressed with its software; it gives few options when scanning to create pdf's and its options for photo scanning are a bit frustrating.

Canon 8800F Slide Scanning

Ben Fisherman, Amazon
4 July 2008
  • 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. For smaller jobs or lower resolution, it would be a very good choice. The setup took about 30 minutes - following the sketchy instructions. The software included Photoshop elements 5.0, and that is nice.

Clean the platten first!!

  • 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 it doesn't seem to do much). But as I experimented with various settings, I kept noticing little dots (really really small circular distortions) on my scans.

Works better than expected

  • 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. I started scanning in slides. Using the 4 slide caddy made the job move fast with great quality.
