Haters Need A Dose Of Reality...
Since this product DOES work with Windows 10, I'm going to ignore every complaint about how it does not...
What gets overlooked is that there is no native support for TWAIN-64 in Windows: blame Microsoft for that, not the scanner manufacturers. Software products like Vuescan bypass that problem and make this scanner available regardless whatever version of Windows is being used. The CanoScan software is available as a WIA scanner option in any application which allows for the user to choose the input source; again, get over it.
One of the best indicators of the results this scanner can achieve, comes from scanning 16mm film frames: I can get 5" x 7" prints out of a film size which is a bit smaller than 110 negative.
This scanner is not for the casual user, by any means. A CanoScan 220 is a much safer choice for the under-initiated. If you want to work for top results and need affordable power, this scanner IS the best choice, and does not cost an arm and a leg in the process.

Perfect scanner, does what itbsays
I bought this scanner to digitize photo albums and slides and negatives from over 40 years. The scanner is big enough in surface area to scan multiple photos at once if they are smaller in size, and can capture larger sizes easily. I scan 35mm plus 120mm film and even slides. I scan documents and make them PDFs, scan to email and scan to storage drives. I work with Mac so I can't speak to the Windows issue. But this scanner is perfect and does everything as advertised. I highly recommend.

I Could Not Be More Pleased
I have used a Canon 8000F for many years and did not want to replace it-I loved it. However, I was not able to obtain a driver for it for WINDOWS 7-64 bit. Since I was a little upset with Canon over this, I shopped around extensively for a new scanner. I soon reached the inescapable conclusion that Canon still makes the best home scanner and purchased a Canon 9000F for a large scanning project--six large bins of a hundred years of family photos. The MULTI-PHOTO, AUTO-ALIGN advanced features along with the speed of the 9000F are making short work of this project! We scanned over 10,000 pictures in just two afternoons. (Only 20,000 to go!) The pictures, negatives, and slides all produce high resolution crisp, sharp, acurately colored photos. The new one-botton features are also so useful that we use them daily. The installation was flawless, and the 9000F has not missed a beat through this heavy use. I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED. I hate to say it, but thank you Canon for not having a driver for my old 8000F.

Waste of time and money
Not too sure why canon made this. I picked one up to scan film with and the quality is terrible, down right awful. Scans are generally pretty ugly and need a fair amount of work to make them look slightly less terrible but terrible nonetheless. Scanning software says the image will be one size but after copying the image into the Lightroom to work with it the file size is about a quarter of what scan gear says it will be. Very disappointed in this product and if you're thinking of getting one, don't!!

Finally - a fast and easy to use photo scanner
I have thousands of family photos to scan and organize. Some have been literally "stuck" in "magnetic" albums for years. When I remove them from the albums (a better description would be peel), the photos curl.
I can place 2 to 4 of the curled photos on the screen and scan them. The included software separates the photos into different files which can be saved and named in batches. The photos do not have to be lined up square with the scanner window, they can be at an angle. This makes the scanning much faster. A scan at the default resolution takes about 10 seconds. This includes processing and separating the photos into individual files. A 3.5" x 5" photo results in a 400KB file size, perfect for my pupose. The resolution is adjustable.
I am very satisfied with the scanner and have made significant progress on the oldest photos. When i get to the newer photos that are in window albums, the speed of the process will increase substantially.
