Software is Pathetic

ElderGeek, Canon
25 May 2014
  • Conclusion: I bought this to upgrade from a LiDE 600. Nice, solid scanner absolutely undermined by software apparently designed as a high-school programming project. No logic or rhyme or reason for menu options, poor, slow results. I've had to buy third-party software (PaperScan) to make it usable.
  • Pros: Compact Design, vertical install
  • Cons: Difficult to use

Skip this one....

  • Conclusion: My main dislike of this scanner is that when I want to use it it takes forever to get it to respond. I have to unplug it from the computer several times before it comes to life. This should not be---all you should do it click on the scanner icon. Definitely will not buy another Canon scanner!

disappointed

bpowell, Canon
21 April 2012
  • Conclusion: was very disappointed. product was reported to do 9600dpi output, but the best it would ever do was 2400dpi, without erring. and that took 6 minutes for an 8x10 photo. Utilities provided only allow 600 dpi as output from the options menus.

Not for anything except completely flat documents

Villageman, Amazon
1 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this from Amazon to replace a 10 year old scanner. So far I have been quite disappointed with the scanner. It seems to have such a narrow focus depth that anything that is not absolutely flat loses focus.

Not like earlier CanoScan Copiers

aged techie, Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: We have used Canon scanners for 20 years in our business. All worked more or less the same. "Improvements" in this model have about driven us crazy: you cannot set the scanner to 'multi-crop' permanently....you have to preview and rescan every time to make this work.

poor film scans

A. Ostling, Amazon
17 June 2009
  • Summary: This scanner does a good job of scanning prints and documents. But the accessory film scan device is virtually unusable. My results were hopelessly out of focus. I contacted the Canon service center, and after they had seen my emailed scans, they agreed that something was amiss.

Misleading description

John Feather "fit4lit", Amazon
11 May 2009
  • Summary: This scanner will scan photo prints and documents at a maximum of 600 dpi, and film at a maximum of 4800x4800, not 9600x9600 as stated in the description. If you are scanning slides (positive film), you need to remove each slide from it's holder, place it in the film holder, which is designed for...

Сканер Canon CanoScan LiDE 700F

Алексей, dns shop
19 September 2014
  • Summary: Не советую покупать если хотите сканировать негативы, а уж тем более слайды.
  • Pros: Контактный датчик только для НЕПРОЗРАЧНЫХ материалов, они сканируются очень хорошо.
  • Cons: При сканировании негативов подсветка светит не равномерно, на скане появляется дополнительный "узор" из темных полос, из-за мерцания подсветки скан получается смазанным. В общем, даже ломографам вряд ли понравится. "Авторизованный сервисный центра" как его назвали в сервисном центре ДНС недоста...
