Yes - its a nice scanner, and the Canon Software is ok for
getting it to do simple scanning jobs. With Vuescan I can
get a lot more out of it though. Its getting 'old' now and
Ive been expecting a new model or two from Canon but
Im not sure of its current price range w.r.t other better
Easily set up too. This topic has been discussed a lot, and you
can hunt for more detailed info on my archive of the list
(no ads - just plain text, searchable etc).
If you want some sample scans then I can stick them online
for download - but at 20+ megs a pop they may be a bit too
extreme for that. My favourite comparison is with PhotoCD,
from where I got the desire to buy a scanner, and the Canon
does better by a fair way.
