CanoScan 5200F Scanner


We would like to introduce to you a Canon scanner with Film Automatic Retouching & Enhancement technology for removing dust and scratches. Low price, excellent features and exclusive software bundle make this solution the model you've long hoped to find!

Summarizing the results of my tests I must say that the Canon CanoScan 5200F model was designed in compliance with the strictest industry standards. I liked a lot those small details in the scanner design like the easy access to the connectors panel...

Canon CanoScan 5200F review


Paying more should get you faster scans and better quality

Film scanning ; Dust reduction

Indifferent scanning speeds ; Quality no better than cheaper rivals ; Expensive Moiré with unscreened scans

The 5200F has a mid-range price, but turns in a decidedly low-end performance.
