Documents and Film Scanning : Canon CanoScan 8800F


Unlike the various types of printers which tend to arrive without the required USB lead for connecting to the computer, scanners are more fortunate in this respect.

The CanoScan 8800F comes with both power and USB leads. This model has recently taken over the desk space, normally the home of my CanoScan LiDE 90 unit, for the purpose of this review. Decked out in matt silver and reflective black, the CanoScan...

Good quality scans at a fair price Canon's Canoscan 8800F is a traditional flatbed scanner, as opposed to the combined printer-scanners that are more popular nowadays. The reason you might want ...

Canon CanoScan 8800F


The Canon CanoScan 8800F flatbed scanner works well on both prints and film.

High-quality scans, particularly for prints. Backlight correction feature. LED light source eliminates warm-up time.

Scratch removal feature has little to no effect. Scans only four slides at a time.

In the niche category of flatbed scanner that scans film and prints, the Canon CanoScan 8800F delivers high quality with impressive consistency.

While the CanoScan 8800F proved to be a competent machine, we had to ask how it was more competent than a multifunction device like the Canon MP980 or MP990 and how it compared to more expensive scanners like the Epson V700 or Microtek M1.It's similar...

Canon CanoScan 8800F


Great style design, works well with other Canon products. fast, quiet with excellent quality of result.

The software was dissapointing. It would have been much more satisfactory if it was the latest Photoshop. Even if it meant an increase in price

Canon CanoScan 8800F


A superb bit of kit for the money. I have used it for all sorts of things, including colour transparencies. It is so much better than my previous scanner that I am having to scan all my transparencies again! It's also extremely fast by comparison.

Haven't found any yet, but I haven't had it for that long.

Canon CanoScan 8800F


It is very sturdy and allows our company to scan card mounted microfilms and larger format transparancies than other products of a similar price and certainly at a fraction of the price of so-called "industrial" products.
