The Canon 8800F has a detachable shield in the lid that houses a secondary lighting unit for scanning transparent materials. Canon also includes 3 different “film guide mounts” to ensure accurate scanning for these less conventional formats. While it can take up to 2 minutes to fully scan 4 slides, the resolution of the resulting images is extremely good.
Here is what one owner had to say about the Canoscan 8800F-
It’s sleek and light and – as far as photos go – it’s fairly easy to figure out. One snowy day in January, I sat down with the scanner and did my 100 slides (high resolution) and was very pleased with the quality of the finished product, and above all – the TIME. Even high resolution photos scan amazingly fast and – praise be to the heavens above – there is NO LAMP to warm up.” (Rosemary Thornton, “Author, Montgomery Ward’s Mail Order Homes”) Excepted for size- Click Here to read original review
