Canon Canoscan 5600F Scanner [REVIEW]


Looking over my shoulder recently, I was surprised at how much I have come to depend on a scanner. Early on, I had a love/hate relationship with desktop scanners, mainly because of their early and fiddly operating software.

And don't bring up the topic of dedicated film scanners!

Great for Slides


Bought this scanner, after reviewing several on-line, to scan a bunch of my Dad's old 35mm slides. It works great for this purpose. I was up and scanning in a matter of minutes. It is a little loud when operating and does take up a fairly large space...

Does exactly what I wanted it to


Years of photos that need preserving and my best solution would be digital scrapbooking. My Canon scanner did a beautiful job on an 80 year old wedding picture of my parents and is easy and fast to use (I can scan four snapshots at one time and file...

Limitations for film scanning


I thought the 5600F scanner would scan negatives larger than 35 mm. I have glass negatives, e.g., which are 5" x 7". Otherwise, I am very satisfield with the scans of old photographs

Canon means quality


I purchased this product to replace another Canon scanner that was not compatible with Windows 7. I also wanted/needed one with its own power supply as I connect it to a laptop.

Great buy


This was purchased as my first scanner purchase in about 15 years. Thing shave improved. The scanner is faster with better resolution. The connection to my Mac was nothing, the software loaded perfectly and is intuitive and easy to use
