Canon's ImageFormula Fires Off Double-Sided Scans


Need to scan both front and back of magazine page? Turn to Canon's Scan-tini and you'll have it in six seconds (just be gentle with the document feeder).

Canon imageFormula P-150 Scan-tini


Canon has managed to shoehorn a 20-page automatic document feeder (ADF) into the P-150, along with duplexing (scanning both sides of a page at the same time) capabilities. Its speed would be a reasonable clip for a desktop scanner, at 15 pages per...

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

Relatively large and heavy for a portable scanner. Initial setup is a touch harder than it should be

The Canon imageFormula P-150 Scan-tini more than justifies its large size with fast speed, an automatic document feeder, and the ability to scan both sides of a page.

Review: Canon imageFormula P-150 portable scanner


If you're in the market for a portable USB document scanner, or just one that requires minimal desktop space, the Canon imageFormula P-150M should definitely be on your short list.

When you connect the Scan-tini to your Mac, a drive icon mounts on your desktop. This small, 14.4MB volume holds a stripped-down version of Canon’s CaptureOnTouch Lite software. Canon calls this feature “Plug and Scan” and it means that you don’t have...

Canon imageFORMULA P-150 review


Imagine the scene. You're on the road. You're tired and lugging several suitcases behind you, including your laptop. And you've also got to haul along a scanner with you. If this situation seems familiar then you may already have looked over portable...

Canon can be proud of what it’s achieved here. The Canon imageFORMULA P-150 is much lighter and better-looking than the competition. Only the ScanSnap S300 can get close on portability, but that scanner isn’t as powerful or as capable of as...

Review: Canon Imageformula P-150 mobile scanner


The Canon Imageformula P-150 is the latest mobile scanner from Canon. It sells for under $300 online, and can scan at duplex up to 20 sheets per sitting. A perfect portable scanning companion for your mobile office. Definitely compact in size,...

Windows, Mac and Linux support is a bonus.  The size and design are very appealing and matches the traditional IBM Thinkpad look that many mobile business users have grown accustomed to.  Software, if not using third-party applications could be a deal...

Excellent scanner - very pleased


I just finished scanning 51 double-sided, color and grayscale pages of a booklet and it didn't skip a page, pull multiple pages or jam once. I did separate them into stacks of 15 pages before setting them on the feeder. In any event, this little (and I...

Very small footprint - will fit on most any workspace. Driverless install/use with Windows 7 and on-device OnTouch software works much better than expected ; Very fast scanning at 300dpi - color and B/W ; Quiet, efficient (powers off when you close...

I haven't tested this with Linux yet. Results may vary on that platform, but works like a dream with Windows 7

Love the scanner.


Minor, would be nice if it could accommodate thick items (card stock). Wish Canon had included a useful software package instead of paperport. That cost one egg on rating.

Love the scanner. Love that it has built in software. Document feeder works well so far (max 4 pages in my use). The Canon software does a great job at producing searchable PDFs, my main use. I have not tried pictures etc, but I have a flatbed for...

Hate the Paperport (Nuance) software. The interface is cluttered. If you try to work on file in it, it conveniently (not) moves the file to folder of its choice. I have files where I want them, leave them there. The worst is that I bought the scanner...

I'm loving it


Fairly easy to use if you want basic scanning. Came in handy a couple of weeks after purchasing. Saved me a lot of leg work

None so far

Nice Little Scanner


Nice capabilities for the price. Already scanned an office worth of papers and shredded. Definitely a good buy.

Nice size, USB power if you have enough open slots, Duplexing capability, and good speed for scans of all quality

The feeder does jam sometimes or double feeds. Also had papers with curled edges get caught on the forked feeder mechanism
