I thought it would last

Mr airsoft, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for 12o back in December 2012. I have a few hundred B&W Negatives and i planned on buying a scanner to digitize them instead of buying a lot of photo paper and the chemicals seeing as i developed them myself. I plugged it in and i had to update the software that it came with 2 hours on the phone to find that out, anyways it worked fine for the first 3 negatives nothing exceptional but then i noticed that there were lines showing up like the light from the...

  • Summary: Canon CanoScan LiDE 700F - Flatbed scanner - 8.5 in x 11.7 in - 9600 dpi x 9600 dpi - Hi-Speed USB - CANOSCAN LIDE 700 COLOR IMAGE SCANNER Ok as a flat-bed document scanner, absolutely hopeless as a film scanner and as a mounted slide scanner useless. Easy to install, easy to make function as a document scanner and the results are fine.

Worthless and a waste of time and effort

  • Summary: This did fine with scanning pictures and documents, but failed 100% with scanning film negatives. I bought this because of the option to scan color negatives. When I attempted to install the color film mechanism, the calibration failed. Canon support was useless - nothing they suggested would work. They had me trying different things that didn't seem to make sense.

  • Summary: I have the same problem with this scanner,when scanning negatives, as other people do. The scannes just don't come out sharp! The photos I scan have close to the same problem. Just not as sharp as the photo it self. So I can't enlarge any of the pictures to 8x10. So Iam very disappointed.

Not happy

  • Summary: I purchased this scanner to scan old family photos. I was very disappointed in the quality of the scanned images. The colors were off and the scanned image was poor in quality. No matter how many settings I changed, the pictures just looked bad. I will be returning and purchasing something different.

GARBAGE

David E. Heintz "media instructor", Amazon

  • Summary: I am a faithful Canon user. I love their digital cameras. I have used all kinds of digital scanners, digital video etc. I have set up my own scanning situation with a point and shoot canon and a close up lens that does WAY better scans. This scanner may work well for paper images or even sheet film but for scanning from 35mm film, slides or film strips, it is worse than useless because it makes you think it will work.

Unreliable, and quite frankly rubbish...

  • Summary: 13 months old and it failed! Used maybe once a month for thirteen months then it became jammed. The software claimed that the travel lock was engaged. The device was looked after, hardly moved and certainly used with care. There are hardly any moving parts to go wrong so a bit of a shock when it failed. The scanner made. Number of crunching noises. This thirteen month old scanner now resides in the bin! I expected more from Canon!

Poor performance with negatives; appalling return service

Babbage, Amazon

  • Summary: I quickly needed a negative scanner so that I could print over 100 5x7" photos for a timeline at my son's funeral, as half his life was pre-digital. The Canon promised more than 3,000 dpi from a negative, but the results were worse than scanning the old 6x4" prints and it took more than 7 minutes per negative! My old Dell V305 scanner/printer did just as well (if not better) from the prints anyway, at 600 dpi.

Mangelhafter Artikel

Jochen Winkler, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Der Scanner fiel nach 6 Wochen auf Grund eines Fehlers aus; er wurde zur Reparatur an den Servicebetrieb Herbert Geissler GmbH übergeben. Es wurde wiederholt versucht, mir zu vermitteln, dass ich mit dem Nachfolgegerät 5600 F-ATG zufrieden zu sein hätte. Dieses Gerät hat eine Bauhöhe von 95 mm; das reklamierte Gerät eine Höhe von 44 mm und war damit ein Merkmal für meine Kaufentscheidung.

  • Excerpt: No comments
  • Pros: Небольшое энергопотребление.
  • Cons: Имеет чудовищный недостаток - очень маленькая глубина резкости. Это невероятно, но по моим подсчетам, он измеряется в десятых долях миллиметра и для качественного сканирования фотопленок (а покупал я его именно для этого), он не подойдет. Вообще, сканеры с CIS-датчиком это полный отстой, по моему мнению.
