Canon Imageformula P-150 review


This lightweight portable scanner makes sense for business users on the road, but it's a niche product.

Canon Imageformula P-150 review: portable scanner


Canon touts the P-150 as the fastest portable scanner in the world. We review it to see if it's got the quality and usability to match.

Canon Image FORMULA P-150 Document Scanner


Zero and I mean ZERO(none, nothing, zip) software or driver Install required. The easiest Scanning interface I have ever seen and it even remembers your settings. High speed USB with built in power (no external supply needed). Scan quality is superb...

Slighty fidly loading of pages due to small size of 'paper guides' Auto deskew feature not very good (but not really needed abyway). A little pricey but in my view worth it.
