Excerpt: I received this scanner just over a week ago as the latest of several attempts to digitize my 35 mm slide collection from the 70s and 80s. Why, oh why, didn't I start with this solution?! I've scanned about 500 slides so far, saved them to a flash drive, and viewed them on my 60" HD tv - they look pretty much like the original slides and this is without any post-processing! I'm scanning at the highest available resolution (4800) and saving as jpeg.
Excerpt: This is my third CanoScan. I wear them out, but it takes several years of hard use from me. I scan lots and lots of slides and negatives for my photography business. I get them from garage sales or from want ads. So, they are in a wide range of condition. This new scanner scans with White LED, 9600 dpi and 48-bit input/output. Using Photoshop to do some post scan clean up and the images turn out looking excellent.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Excerpt: I have thousands of 35mm negatives from way back that I wanted to upload to my computer, this scanner does the job! Very fast! Good picture quality - have also used on many color slides from the 50's that come out looking as fresh as the day they were made. I couldn't be happier. Just hooked it up, turned it on and worked great right out of the box. I never read instructions anyway, but I had no problems getting everything going. Did I mention it was fast?
Excerpt: My main goal was to preserve my slides from 30 years ago when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer. I have found that my family members are also wanting family photos (some photos are 100 years old)digitally scanned. I have found that this scanner is easy to use and is definitely making me learn so much more. It is nice to be able to scan slides, photos and negatives with one product.
Excerpt: I used this scanner to scan35mm film strips that were over 30 years old. The pictures were excellent. The software was able to remove dust, and fading from age. I highly recommend this scanner.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Excerpt: Decent flat bed scanner for scanning medium format negatives. The software is minimal and results are so-so with it. I'm planning on using scanview software to improve scanning performance as this scanner seems to have much more potential. The scanner works great for regular reflective scanning, though I bought it as an economical way to archive medium format and 35mm negatives.
Excerpt: Takes only seconds from power-on to scanning, because the LED light source is faster to stabilize than the old fluorescent type. Good resolution, good speed, drivers work with Windows 7, nothing bad to say about it except it's 2 or 3 times taller (same footprint) than my old one. There are many ways to use it, including calling from Acrobat or Photoshop, but each method of scanning involves somewhat different configuration options and not all options have all the...
Pros: Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
