I have found that one of the all time best sellers in both photo and document scanners is the Canon 8800F. In this ‘Document Scanner Reviews’ feature, let’s give this document scanner the review it deserves.

It is said that the Canon CanoScan 8800F scanner is a scanner that received more praise from more users who have used it far beyond the testing phase. And the 3 adjectives that best describes this scanner are ‘reliable’, ‘durable’, and ‘accurate’. With a maximum resolution of 4800 x 9600 dpi, it is also one of the favorites of users who are into photo reproduction. This is because the Canon 8800F has features for scanning slides, negative films, as well as pictures. It comes with a software that enables restoration of old pictures by removing scratches and dusts. Thus, it has gotten itself listed among the top automatic photo scanners today. If it is good at reproducing and scanning high quality photos, reproducing text and image documents is a piece of cake.

  1. That’s really good. I use the Canon Pixma MP810 printer which has a scanner built into it which also scans photos, slides and negative film. It does a great job but I think something built just for scanning, like the one in your post, would be so much better, especially as it comes with that software.
