Canon imageFormula P-215II Scan-tini Personal Document Scanner

 

The Canon imageFormula P-215II Scan-tini Personal Document Scanner is designed to be portable, but it's capable enough to serve as a personal desktop scanner as well.

Portable. Automatic document feeder. Duplexes (for two-sided scanning). Fast.

Relatively big and heavy for a portable scanner. Application programs do not install by default.

Conclusion If you put a premium on even a little faster speed, be sure to consider the Kodak i940. Alternatively, if you want a lighter, more portable scanner than the Canon imageFormula P-215II Scan-tini Personal Document Scanner, but still need...

Canon imageFormula P-215 Scan-tini Personal Document Scanner

 

Although big and heavy for a portable scanner, the Canon imageFormula P-215 Personal Document Scanner's fast speed, duplexing, and ADF make it well worth the extra size and weight.

Automatic document feeder. Duplexes. Rated at 15 pages per minute for black and white as well as grayscale

Relatively big and heavy for a portable scanner. Application programs don't install by default

Portable scanning for PCs and Macs

Easy to install ; Fast ; Fixes problems of its predecessor ; Portable ; Duplex scanning

Expensive ; Bundled software not great

Even on the highest quality setting, the Canon imageFORMULA P-215 was fast, and the results were excellent.

Canon ImageFORMULA P-215

 

Canon's latest offers high specs for a portable sheet-feed scanner, including duplex scanning.

Can scan ID cards ; Neat cover/feed tray ; 20-sheet feed tray

No case supplied ; Photo scanning could be better ; Bit heavy for true portability

Canon P-215 review

 

Although we've seen a number of sheetfed scanners over the last year, truly portable models like the Canon P-215 remain something of a rarity.

In general the Canon P-215 works very effectively. We weren't quite as impressed by the feeding mechanism as we hoped to be, although those looking to scan letters and other smooth materials should have few problems. The software is certainly...

This well-designed portable scanner comes with superb software. It's perfect for mobile workers who need to capture multi-page documents

Canon imageFormula P-215 review

 

Portable scanner that doesn't require batteries

Fast, Compact portable scanner, Draws power from USB on host computer

Expensive, Relatively modest scanning resolution

A price tag of £257 means that the P-215 is quite a bit more expensive than an ordinary flatbed office scanner. However, its compact, portable design and clever software makes it a good choice for people who need a basic scanner for business documents...

Canon ImageFormula P-215 scanner

 

Compact, Doesn’t require additional power cord, Consistently produced high quality scans across the board, Extremely easy to use

No option available to adjust contrast or saturation

Admittedly, it’s not often that we get excited about scanners. However, the P-215 makes scanning so smooth and easy, with so few hassles,  in a nifty portable package, that it didn’t take us long to fall in love with this little device. Despite putting...

Consumer review by: Stephen S. (newegg.com)

Feed mechanism is very poor

 

Would not recommend this scanner.

Scans quickly. Good image resolution. Business card software does a good job. Paperwork 14 is an easy to use product. Auto scans the back side when an image is present.

Often doesn't recognize paper is in the scanner. Often grabs multiple pages. Not good for volume scanning. Very disappointed as it does not meet my need for a portable scanner to scan multi page documents.
