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

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

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...

Worth the money

 

Portable, doesn't need a power cord. Can scan almost anything. The software is packed into the scanner itself. No driver installation. Full color. OCR. Can do both sides at once. Crops to small items and corrects angle automatically

The cover plate can feel flimsy at times. Sometimes the software can feel slow loading

Great Scanned Image

 

Used to scan multipage reports. Makes a great copy. Speed good. Lots better than hand feeding a flat-bed scanner. Skips pages (1 out of 20) and last page always needs to be coaxed through.
