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.

Excellent document and photo quality along with a transparency scanner make this a versatile scanner.

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

Go with the older LiDE's. This one was worse

 

Worse than the canoscan lide 110 it was suppose to replace BY FAR! Slower, noisier, more expensive, and plagued with bugs. It's possible I got a defective scanner, however the scan misalignment is something I really only find with low-end cheap scanners.

Easy design Powered by USB lots of added things that have little use, (scanner for my film?)

- VERY SLOW AT HIGH RESOLUTIONS! SLOWER THAN MY OLD LiDE 110 - Won't accurately scan. There is a slight deformation, (square box appears skewed and not paralelle) - CONSTANTLY gives me error "cannot communicate with scanner" half way through a scan!

Does NOT require separate power supply

 

One of the images for this scanner shows the scanner, box, USB cable, and what is incorrectly labeled as a power adapter. That is NOT a power adapter, it is the attachment for scanning film negatives. This scanner is powered by the single USB cable...

Great scanner. See "Other Thoughts".

excellent quality

 

Works without any effort with my mac. The available resolutions have been great for scanning family pics (high) and travel receipts (low). Relying on USB power, something I didn't care about when I bought it, turned out to be a nice feature, making...

After downloading drivers for windows, I still got errors. Thankfully, I can just switch over to using my mac to get work done.

Great speed and value

 

Cover feels very delicate. I just have to handle it like a piece of equipment and be gentle. Not a con, though. Picked it up when they had a Christmas sale and it was well discounted. I would have gone with a cheaper version otherwise.

I love this thing. Scans fast, clear and crisp.

Cover is not heavy enough to press anything flat if you need to scan that sort of thing. I do from time to time, but put a book on the top.

Only 9600 maybe for film, 1200 for paper media

 

If you can't scan a document or picture or whatever over 1200 DPI, they should state that in the specifications.

Fast, compact, easy to use, comes with film adapter

Under XP using Canon software, the maximum is 1200 dpi for anything except film, and for film it means 35 MM slides using the adapter and it refuses to do it if the adapter is not plugged in. Typing in anything higher bounces it back to 1200 or lower.

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.
