Canon imageFORMULA R40 document scanner review


The Canon imageFORMULA R40 takes multi-page duplex document scanning in its stride

Fast automated scanning ; Single-pass duplex operation ; Customizable scanning options

Unintuitive ‘Job Select’ button ; Lacks Wi-Fi/Ethernet connectivity ; No touchscreen

This desktop scanner takes all the hard work out of digitizing documents with speed and efficiency. With a 60-sheet auto document feeder and single-pass scanning for duplex pages, along with multiple output options, it powers through piles of paperwork...

Canon imageFormula R40 review: Capable performance at a good price | IT PRO


It lacks network support, but the R40 is an efficient desktop scanner with good management software

Good value ; Bundled software is capable (if basic) ; Strong output quality

No network support ; Colour scan speeds could be better

ALL The goodies!


Very nice package for anyone starting a hobby in photography or video making.

Comes with everything you see in the photos (and then some!), Tripod and monopod are decent quality

Tripod does not turn up or down, only rotates from left to right and swivels in 2 directions
