Low Cost Scanner - Lightweight - Works well - Easy to setup & use..
26 January 2014
Summary: I've generally used HP or MicroTek scanners but was price shopping to replace a scanner broken by movers for the wife/mother-in-law. This Cannon is laughable lightweight and thin / flimsy. It has a 'prop-up' food on one side tends / contributes to items sliding away from the 'home' registration point. That said, the scanner works as advertised, the scan quality is good and it's easy to use.
Excellent color accuracy, USB powered, easy to use, no warmup.

Summary: I purchased this scanner used, my old scanner was getting unreliable. Since this one uses LED lighting it did not require a warmup, and the fact that it runs off USB power makes it very convienent and portable. Make sure that the scanner head is locked before moving the unit if there is any chance of a hard bump. (It is not easy to take the scanner apart to put the belt back on the idler wheel.) Of course, this goes for any scanner.
Full of features,quick to scan,awesome supporting software for editing

Summary: I had already been using a canon scanner Lide 35. However my new pc would not recognize it..so after about a year, I broke down and purchased this model. No issues with my PC and it works fine. I am pleased with the performance and would recomend it to a friend. This Model will also read 35mm film and make pictures from the original film negatives.. I was unaware of this at the time of purchase...definatley a bonus as I still have my 35 mm slr camera !
Summary: I decided to buy the scanner because it was complete. Scanner, Film scanner, program disc and instructions. I also posed a question which was acted apond and emailed me his answer back to me. I think that this model is the Cadillac of Scanners.
Summary: Does slides, negatives, and photos very well. Can select multiple photos or negatives to be scanned individually from the unit. Software, PhotoStudio and CanoScan, does a good job of correcting some photographic anomalies. Runs off a USB 2.0 port, no wall wart. Had LED lighting rather than florescent, gives faster startup. Low profile, only 1.625" tall. Can be stood up with built in support.
Summary: I do like this product. Although the software is a little clunky to begin with, I soon got used to it and now use it with ease. I am really impressed with the way the software retouches and refreshes old faded photos. As I am preparing photos for a family history book, this has been a real plus- some photos are 100 years old.
