I am using a Canon 2700F Scanner . . . and it has given me countless hours of scanning joy! It scans very fast and silently . . .

Not having used other scanners, I cannot make a comparison. I recommend this scanner very highly . . . good luck in securing a good secondhand unit, and happy scanning.

I have used a Canon 2700 since they were first released in the UK, and have to do a lot of work in Photoshop to get the scans looking right, but apart from that it's OK. Recently i tried to scan a very dark Kodachrome slide of an old Yak 40, and there was a lok of scanner noise in the dark areas. I then gave the slide to a friend with a Minolta, who scanned it with no problems. Perhaps I might need to download some new drivers from Canon. Any advise would be welcome???

Anyway, with the new 4000dpi Canon around now, the 2700/2720 scanners should be available on the secondhand market.

Good luck with your seach
