Canon - CanoScan N1240U

 

Flatbed scanners have never been particularly stylish things, but Canon's certainly pushing things in the right direction. This new CanoScan N1240U is not a great deal larger than the A4 documents that it's designed to scan ...

This is what scanners should be like. Stylish, easy to install and use and with a selection of useful, practical utilities supplied in the box. And, above all, with output quality to match its looks. It may be more expensive than many no-brand models...

great scanner for the price

 

I've owned multiple scanners, and this is my second Canon scanner. I use it both at home and in my classroom. I've owned the 4400F for about a year now (and have it in my classroom for about the same time), so after a year I figure I can give a pretty ...

Ease of set-up, price, ease of use, great scans for photos & documents

Sub-par photo and OCR software included

Consumer review by:

Did OK for photos, not ok for negatives or slides

 

Received this scanner for Xmas. Worked very well for the first two weeks on photos and negatives but so-so on slides but the slides are 40 years old and have darken and lose of color over time. In the last two weeks started getting very grainy scans ...

For the cost it does very well.

Slow to scan and didn't care for the photo editing program that comes with scanner.

~~ JET SET WITH THE CANON CANOSCAN CS4400F FLATBED SCANNER ~~

 

When is the last time anyone in civilized society has used a scanner? I mean, paper pictures? Slides? Negatives? What in the world are those?? Anyone who was born before the year 2000 has photo albums, photo boxes and storage that requires no ...

Scans everything, beautiful resolution, easy to use

pricey investment

Consumer review by:

Great for photos, rubbish for negs and slides

 

If you think about buying this scanner to scan negatives or slides, forget about it. The maximum optical resolution is 300 dpi, which in the case of film scanning is an absolute crap. You can get pictures good enough to send to friends via e-mail, but ...

Extremely silent, easy to operate, perfect colours. Scanning photographs is quick and yields excellent results.

Cannot be used for film unless you really don't give a damn about details.

Great Bang for the Buck

Product Specifications

Impressive. Spectacular. Remarkable. There are many ways to describe this truly affordable scanner that delivers outstanding 1200 x 2400 dpi resolution scans. It's called the CanoScan N1240U scanner, and when you consider its numerous innovations that make scanning fast and easy, you will have no doubts to choose this amazing machine. The N1240U scanner is just over one inch high and uses a single USB cable for power and connection to any compatible Mac or PC. What's more, its three external buttons allow you to scan, copy or e-mail your images in just one step. You can even burn complete photos onto CDs with ease. So it's easier than ever to take advantage of this scanner's superb 48-bit scanning with the color depth and brilliance of more than 281-trillion possible colors. Of course, its dramatic metal finish makes this performance scanner look incredible wherever you put it. The accompanying stand allows you to stand up the N1240U scanner on your desk, and still use it to scan at any time. Canon's advanced Z-Lid Expansion Top will forever change the way you scan bulky items, such as books and magazines. Other scanner covers lift only at an angle and become uneven and awkward when scanning anything that isn't completely flat. The N1240U scanner cover includes a special expansion hinge that lifts vertically and lays flat to create the space needed for bulky items, and to help ensure clear scans.
