Canon vs. Epson scanner V800 V550 CS9000

Canon CS9000F-II Review

You can with Canon


The Canon 9000F-II offers a lot more for the money over for example the Epson V550 flatbed and film scanner. 

"..More DPI on film, twice the speed on A4 scanning plus a moving lamp film adaptor."

Moving film backlight. (New on series II)

It's very hard to light a large area to a consistent brightness, better film scanners have a moving backlight that tracks the CCD sensor thus ensuring better film backlight consistency.  The same system is used in the Epson V800 (not V550).

Document Scanners to PDF the easy way.


The Canon DR C225W Wireless scanner is ideal for general purpose distributed scanning of a variety of document types.

Review EPSON V800 Photo Scanner

Over the years scanners unlike many other tech products haven't changed a lot. If anyhting they are not as solid. Epson have upgraded the V700 with a LED light source and made other small incremental improvements, most notably the startup time.

The old school scanners could scan with all the DPI you'd need for press, the later scanners have basically got faster and cheaper. 

The Epson V550 scanner is a good scanner for the money and is set to outsell the V700 but it's no V800 in terms of scanning all day long. The Epson V800 is built like a tank, fast as hell and leaves most scanners for dead unless you want to pay $15,000 or more for a drum scanner.

"..So you have to scan say 2,000 35mm slides. A dedicated slide scanner with an automatic feeder would be nice but now rare and expensive for a one off job. After you've scanned the slides you've got an expensive paper weight. With the EPSON V700 you can "batch scan" (Full instructions to batch scan 35mm slides PDF*) using the whole are of the flatbed to create a batch of scanned images from your slide collection, it's easy! If you have some medium format film, all the better. The V700 will eat them with more resolution than you're lightly to need for most prints.."  

On the way!
