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).

Speedy scanning, at just six seconds per page. Once configured, scans directly to Evernote with no problems. Document feeder holds up to 20 sheets. Can scan both sides at once

A bit chunky. Document tray and paper guides seem a bit flimsy. Complicated setup. Doesn't scan to cloud services other than Evernote. Needs to be plugged into two USB ports for maximum velocity

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...

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

Excellent Product


The Canon imageFORMULA P-150 24 bit CMOS 600 dpi Duplex Personal Portable Scanner is an industrious product with great versatility, approaching all tasking in high standards of performances. Highly recommended.

Expeditionary material, very useful during deployment for administrative procedures. Beyond convinient capability during situations in speed of action

Very Light, Elegant, essential, foolproof, critical, crucial. Overall a great tool for any professional out there in need of fast scanning

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

Consumer review by:

Fast, effective, high quality


I got this device to go paperless. All my papers are scanned into Evernote and shredded. Receipts go to shoeboxed. I feel like a free man. If you want to stay organized. This is the way to do it. The directions say the scanner will scan even faster...

Very fast. Small. High quality scans. Excellent software

The custom case and external power supply are expensive from the canon website

Consumer review by:

Great Scanner


Definitely get a carry case for it if you are planning on traveling with it much. I don't really ever use it without using both USB cables (both included), so can't speak to the speed of just one USB cable. There is a"seperation pad" that is a...

This is a great little scanner that exceeded expectations. Is incredibly small and portable, and the way it folds over keeps the inside free of debris and other junk when carrying around in a bag with other things. Speed and quality of the scans are...

When scanning stacks of 20 pages or so (specs are max 20 pages), it will sometimes double feed pages with certain paper, but doesn't happen often
