Canon CanoScan LiDE 700F

 

Unfortunately, as a film scanner, the 700F is ... well ... wimpy—so much so that it's easy to argue that Canon should have left the feature out. The good news is that the limitations for film scanning don't take anything away from the scanner's...

Reasonably capable for photographic prints. Backlight correction and color restore features in driver

Film scan doesn't work for slides. Scans only one frame of film at a time. Film scanning is extremely cumbersome

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 700F handles photographic prints and, to a lesser extent, documents reasonably well, but its film scan capability is best ignored.

Canon Canoscan LiDE 700F scanner review

 

Standalone scanners have dropped in popularity since the all-conquering multi-function device came along, but there's still a market for scanners. The LiDE 700F, the latest flatbed scanner from Canon, is a compact device with loads of features. The...

Great image quality, compact, fantastic driver software

Average OCR and dust and scratch removal performance

A compact and versatile scanner with film scanning attachment that gives great image quality. The Canon can be used vertically too for some reason

Canon CanoScan Lide 700F

 

Nowadays, you're more likely to find a scanner stuck to the top of a printer, but there's still a market for standalone devices. The CanoScan Lide 700F is the latest compact home scanner from Canon. A slim device, it packs in plenty of features for its...

The Canon is an excellent scanner, and while the integrated stand is a bit of a gimmick, the 700F has some great features. The film scanning attachment and software are just two of the main highlights

This is an INCREDIBLE portable scanner! Lightweight!

 

Great scanner, 5 out of 5 stars. No cons, excellent quality, incredible scans. Just be careful with the way you handle the scanner, and don't mess it up or damage it. Ignore the other user that is complaining about quality, it seems to be a good...

Lightweight, incredible resolution and incredible scan quality

It's a very lightweight scanner, but it's not meant to be banged around in a laptop bag, or it will get destroyed easily. So be very careful with it, and treat it with care. Some people bang these devices around and destroy them quickly, be careful

Best consumer negative scanner I could find

 

I did a lot of searching on-line, and this had the best reviews and specs of any currently sold consumer negative scanner I could find. My experience with it has been very good, no problems. Currently, I've scanned close to one hundred negatives. Most...

Good quality scans ; Excellent negative scanning for price (you'll pay several thousand $ for anything better) ; Easy to set-up & use (though finding calibration is non-intuitive) ; Light-weight, space-saving design

Negative scanning speed - 7 minutes for maximum quality; 1:30 for 4x6 quality ; Calibration non-intuitive

Piece of garbage. Don't get it. See below.

 

Cheap, but problems appear only aftre a few months of light use. GARBAGE product. COMPLETE waste of money. What a scam from CanoScan. Should call itself CanNOTScan.

Cheap. And cheaply built apparently

Piece of garbage. Don't get it. After a few months of light use, stripes start to appear on images when scanning negatives. The menu mentions nothing about what maintenance to take or any preventive measure. Lots of complaints on google

I like the Canon

 

I like the canon scanner over other for its simplicity and excellent reproduction.

Easy To Set Up","Excellent Software","Good Resolution

LiDE 700F

 

Cheap, easy to set up, lots of features

In my experience Canon scanners in this price range tend to wear out after about 3 years. 5 years would have garnered 5 eggs, but 3 years does not quite cut it
