Navigator EX software does not work in Mac Yosemite
5 March 2015
Summary: The MP Navigator EX software that is supposed to work with this CanoScan 9000F MarkII in Mac Yosemite refuses to do so, Instead, I only get a "Cannot communicate with scanner,' no matter which version of the drivers or scan software I use.
Summary: I originally ordered this for scanning slides. I was disappointed in the results (they were too dark). HOWEVER, I came to discover that it excels at photographs. It is MUCH MUCH MUCH faster than my all-in-one HP printer scanner and the driver software is also WAY more advanced.
Professional level scans at less then 1/3 the price.

Summary: As a graphics professional I've used just about every brand scanner some costing 4 times what this one does. I think this is the best quality scanner for up to 4 times as much money. The dust and scratch adjustments in the software save me time and the color is phenomenal.
Great for scanning all sorts of negatives including 35mm with sprockets from a Holga

Summary: works as expected. Great for scanning 120 film and 35mm film. Used 35mm in Holga, so wanted to scan in the whole film strip, including sprocket holes. Used 120 film holder to scan in 35mm negative to get sprockets as well. Came out great.
Summary: I bought this to scan and preserve old family photographs, for a family tree project, and to create a family photo album for my daughter and nieces and nephew. Bought it right before Thanksgiving, and shipped it to my parents' home, so I could start this while I was home for the Thanksgiving and...
Summary: I’ve had the Cannon 9000F Mark II for one week today (11/7/14) and have scanned approximately 500 35mm slides and several negative film strips. Although most of the slides are in the original cardboard mounts from Kodak, a number of them are cropped down using masks and mounted in thin glass.
Summary: As a senior geek, my scanner experience goes back to futzing with the early Microteks. In 20 or so years, not much has changed in the futzing department; while the quality of scanned images is impressive.

Summary: I think the unit is terrific. I find the software EXTREMELY confusing and difficult to figure out. I'm sure I am not using a fraction of this scanner's capability because I just can't figure out how to use the software correctly.
Summary: The hardware seems great, as expected from any Canon product. The software is infuriating me. I flatly refuse to sit and STUDYthe darn program.....the basics of scanning a simple document should be intuitive enough to just click and go.
Summary: I bought this because I needed better scans of color prints than I could get from my office multifunction printer/scanner, and this certainly meets that need. I compared scans from my printer scanner with scans of the same print from the Canoscan, and the results are far better -- more accurate...
