Expert review by : M. David Stone (

Canon CanoScan 4200F


The Canon CanoScan 4200F flatbed can scan film as well as prints, but it does better with OCR chores.

Color-restore feature revives old photos. Surprisingly good OCR accuracy. Scans directly to PDF format.

No ADF. Dust and scratch removal feature doesn't do much. Slide scanning produces minimally usable scan quality.
