Summary: This scanner offers high quality scans and is very easy to use. The only 2 things bad about it are: 1. it takes a while to scan. almost 2 minutes per picture 2. If you use Windows XP you have to search long and hard on the web for a device driver that works.
Summary: I have used this scanner for a little over a year now, and it really provides incredible results on printed and other opaque materials. Colors are very true (perhaps a slight warming on the color-temperature, as others have mentioned), and sharpness is fantastic.
Summary: It scans so well but so slow. Even with USB 2. That just about sums it all. This comes from someone who has used an Epson Perfection 1200U and a Visioneer 9020. All these three scanners have comparable price tags. As explained below, the Canon is definitely the slowest among the three.
Summary: Never used a scanner before...or even seen one in action. Read the specs on the Canon..I liked what I read. Used it now for 4 months with absolutly no problems with terrific quality. Have scanned several hundred slides with 1000's more to go. Quality wonderful
Summary: I've been scanning photos and documents for a long time. Last year I purchased an HP 750 all-in-one, and overall I would say I was happy with the results I was getting. I've been wanting to scan slides/negatives and also wanted a smaller device, as I sometimes need to take my scanner with me to...
Summary: This is an incredibly easy to use package. I use Windows XP Home Edition. The scanner was up and running with all programs installed within a half hour. I have scanned photos AND negatives with no problem and what I consider to be excellent results.
Summary: I liked it a lot, I bought it and I was sort of frustrated in the begining but once I got the hang of it and how to scan the pictures, the quality was EXCELENT, and for its price I think its just amazing.
Summary: does scan great out of the box but the icr software is not the best. If you have office xp you will have a little problem with format. Talked to cannon and they said upgrade to the omni 11 which cost more than the scanner. Other than this small fomat problem, it works great with xp.
