Canon CanoScan D1250U2F


USB 2.0 flatbed has high resolution and makes fairly fast scans, but its color images aren't up to those of previous Canons.

Canon CanoScan D1250U2F


Canon has a history in cameras, imaging, and optics. So it's no wonder that Canon's scanners cover the gamut of the company's interests. The Canon CanoScan D1250U2F is a film and document scanner; the Canon CanoScan N1240U, a photo scanner. With great...

Canon - CanoScan D1250 U2F


We reviewed the Canon CanoScan D1250 U2F a while ago, and there's little to say that wasn't already covered in that review. The scanner is not quite as sleek and stylish as some of the other ...

Speedy scanning is the name of the game with the CanoScan D1250U2F.

This is a good little scanner. The image quality is fair and, although not an outright bargain, the price is OK.

Canon D1250U2f Flatbed Scanner


I used to own one of those 2nd generation scanners that connect to your parallel port. It was a Visioneer Paperport and I never really liked it. Its max resolution was like 800DPI and it was very slow to scan a 8 * 11 page at 300DPI let alone 800 lol....

Flaky Software


Reasonable looking, nice lid

Software is flaky and not upgradeable to make you buy a new scanner. White elephant!

Canon D1250U2F Flatbed scanner - I Like It! I Like It!


It had been a while since owning my last flatbed scanner; I'd been without one for almost 5 years. I substituted by using the HP flatbed scanner (which was excellent) at my former place of employment. That flatbed could scan at resolutions as high ...

Inexpensive flatbed scanner with excellent resolution and generous software bundle.

Takes a bit longer than I would like to start a scan.

Do NOT buy Canon if you have MS Office.


Excellent hardware components, sturdy, compact.

Bundled OCR software is three versions old and will generate security violations.

Product Specifications

Your dream scanner has arrived. The groundbreaking CanoScan D1250U2F USB flatbed scanner is Canon innovation at its best - a photo and film scanner so versatile, so easy to use and so feature rich, it takes scanning to a whole new level. It is easy to achieve spectacular 1200 x 2400 dpi, 48-bit results - and take advantage of more than 281-trillion possible colors - with your D1250U2F scanner. Four external buttons automate the entire scanning process. In one step you can scan, copy or e-mail your choice of photos or documents. With the built-in 35 mm film adapter you can easily incorporate your negatives and slides into any project. Canon's integrated Quick Automatic Retouching and Enhancement technology (QARE) automatically removes dirt and scratches from images while STAD technology (Stabilized Tone-curve Auto Drawing) instinctively corrects tone and gamma fields and optimizes highlights and shadows. Richer, more robust images are at your fingertips. At every turn, you'll find features that make using the D1250U2F scanner a true pleasure. Canon's advanced Z-Lid expansion top lifts vertically and lays flat to create the space needed for bulky items, such as books or magazines, to ensure clear, high-quality scans. Innovative software included gives you the power to scan multiple photos at once and transfer them to CDs easily. The D1250U2F scanner features the state-of-the-art USB 2.0 interface for incredibly fast image transfer and scanning speeds that are up to 4X faster than USB 1.1-equipped Windows-based computers.
