Personally, I ignore the 'one-touch' buttons, prefering to maintain control from within more advanced software - in this case version 5 of Photoshop elements which ships free with the scanner (two birds, one stone - I was looking to upgrade some version numbers anyway!). This software bundle really is an incredible bonus and will have even the most severely damaged images looking like new in no time.
The driver software allows you to perform a preview scan and then apply an incredible level of control over your images including full RGB tone curve control etc.
If this makes no sense to you then don't worry - the default settings do as good a job as anything else not costing several hundred pounds more.
If you are just using defaults then have no fear - from taking it all out of the box it's very simple to install and start playing.
The only drawback is that with older scanners you could set them going and then do something else productive with your time - this thing however is so speedy at the scans you just plough through your images with no time between!
This scanner comes highly recommended - and although the USB cable may not be the longest ever, it will look very sleek sat on your desk.
I read a lot of reviews before choosing this scanner, and it really has delivered what I was looking for - a simple solution to achieving top quality images from old photographs. I am amazed at how much detail can be retrieved from my old pictures using this combination of scanner and software. The ability to scan colour negatives is crucial here: they have survived much better than the prints originally struck off them.
I find the only drawback, if it is one, is the time I now spend removing imperfections such as dust and scratches from my old slides and negatives, and adding metadata: scanning is only the first part of quite a lengthy process. The end results are truly impressive though, and I would thoroughly recommend this scanner to anyone wanting to digitise their photographic archive.
However with the canoscan 8800f, i must say i was agreably surpirsed and reieve.
I spent the weekend scanning Slides. and the result is very decent and fast.
In fact, whether with the 9900F i spent nighmarish hours to obtain mediocre results and was unable to perform batch scans with decent results ; with the 8800f, i was able to obtain more than satisfactory results (with good reproduction of colors from the original slides) and furthermore i could relax or do something else was the 8800 was managing the scan.
At last i am able to put my slides to cd without having to spend huge prices or spend hours on a single scan.
The price is fairly decent and the design is very sleek.
I strongly recommand this scanner.
If, like me, you're looking at scanning films, there are three film holders included in the box. They cover 35mm, 120 and slides. It can be fiddly to get the films to fit in to holders, especially where the film is curled. Luckily Canon include a black card for fitting in the holder to keep curled film pressed against the glass. I used this in a slightly unorthodox way, by only placing it at the end of the film, but I'm pleased with the results. It's worth noting that because the holders are designed to fit the films perfectly, it can be difficult if you want to scan the borders of the film. i shoot 35mm on a 120 camera to expose over the sprocket holes, so in order to scan these in to include the sprocket holes I had to fit the 35mm film in the 120 holder. As you can imagine, this is less than ideal and is very fiddly. However, it's certainly doable, especially if you use the included card. I've not tried to do something similar with 120, but I imagine it would be difficult as the 120 holder is the largest anyway.
The software is classic Canon. Somewhat clumsy and unintuitive. You really have to dig in to the advanced mode to get the most out of the scanner. The exposure lock, which is essential for the sort of scanning I do, is genius and gives you an extra level of control.Read more ›
