Summary: I've purchased this scanner to digitize old family stock pictures and important documents. After doing a lot of research on how to minimize my pain, I finally settled on this product and I was not disappointed. 6 months later it still works like a charm without a single glitch.

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.
Very very good for prints, just good for negatives.

Summary: A much reviewed product. Also, some very good tech reviews on other web sites. I thought I might have something to add? I bought this scanner because my new printer/scanner "all in one" (a canon mx340) does not do a good job scanner photos (prints).
Summary: I bought this scanner primarily for scanning slides. It has many features that I have not (and probably will not) use, but it appears to be very versatile. I have been using a Canon 8600F for some time and have been very pleased with it, and continue to use it for other things.
Summary: I bought this to scan slides from the 60's to late 70's. I was initially looking at one of those devices that feeds slides through one at a time and was a little concerned about picture quality.
Summary: I have owned many scanners. This is the best by far. In my three months of ownership, I have already scanned about 600 photos. What do I like: Using an LED lighting element, the scanner is immediately ready for use. Scanning is very fast. It is simple to scan multiple images simultaneously.
Summary: This scanner makes it easy to scan multiple photos or slides. I scanned about a hundred slides, 4 at a time, and the quality is very good. Same with photos - you can scan several photos at a time and it automatically crops them and separates them into jpg files.

Excerpt: We purchased the scanner, at the recommendation of a camera shop, to scan old 35 mm slides (from my parents wedding 50 years ago). It takes a little time because you can only scan 4 slides at a time, but we are very happy with the finished results.
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.
