Terrific value for money Bought primarily for copying slides that are starting to deteriorate, I was basically after retaining what images I had, but I was amazed at the sheer quality of the scanned images. The online instructions are very easy to follow and copying time is very quick. One great advantage is not requiring a power cable – all the power this machine needs is supplied via the USB lead. The only drawback in my opinion is the lack of a slide holder – films need to be removed from mounts which is a real pain when the mounts are of the old card type which can’t be fitted back together afterwards. But apart from this one small niggle – A LITTLE GEM! Well done once more Canon.

Canon LiDE 700F I bought this to replace an old Canon LiDE 70 as it is no longer supported and there were no 64bit drivers. Amazon despatched the item promptly and it arrived in perfect condition. Set up in Windows 7 (64bit) was simple and I was up and running within a few minutes. I started scanning in some old photos and found the multiple photo scan feature a real time saver. The only problem I have had so far is that, for some reason, the software won’t recognise four photos of the size that I am scanning, so I have to load them three at a time. Not a real problem, just a bit odd as the three photos take up the same linear dimensions as the four would on the platen. The advanced features provide a lot of user control and, although I recognise that this is not going to give professional quality scans, it is certainly good enough for me, and I am quite picky!

Great value for the money Not had this long but it seems great. I took the plunge based on reviews I found elsewhere and ordered it here despite the poor comments on Amazon. It arrived in good condition and was up and running in about 15 minutes. Power comes via USB so less stuff to plug in too.First of all, at least one of the previous reviewers is inaccurate. Using the Canon software the scanner can output at up to 1200dpi in reflective/non film mode if you bother to investigate the Advanced section of the driver software. It has lots of controls and can very quickly produce a decent quality image. There is an option to scan in 16 bit if necessary and lots of other tweaking buttons to play with.The software installed easily on my Mac running Leopard. The machine is also supported by VueScan. With that you can scan at higher resolutions up to the advertised 9600 dpi. I probably won’t do film on it as I have a film scanner and the setup does look fiddly in comparison but will no doubt…
