Product Description


Providing home users with stunningly professional results, the Canon D1250U2F combines crisp detail with a simple design that allows you true versatility in scanning both film and documents. With 1,200 x 2,400 dpi resolution and 48-bit color, scans are sharp and vibrant.

The scanner's flat bed handles pages up to 8.5 x 11 inches and 3-D objects such as books and magazines; a built-in film adapter handles 35mm negatives and slides. Once your originals are in place, you can e-mail, scan, or copy them at the touch of a button.

Fully compatible with PC systems (Windows 98 or higher, Pentium III recommended), the scanner connects via USB interface and comes complete with a software package that lets you design and manage your graphics. Canon's advanced technology automatically corrects tone and shadow, while also removing imperfections from the originals, so you're more likely to get the perfect scan the first time. The scanner is backed by a one-year warranty that covers parts and labor, and includes Instant Exchange service.

From the Manufacturer

It is easy to achieve spectacular 1,200 x 2,400 dpi, 48-bit results--and take advantage of 281 trillion possible colors--with your D1250U2F scanner. Four external buttons automate the entire scanning process. In one step, you can scan, copy, or e-mail your choice of photos or documents. With the built-in 35mm film adapter, you can easily incorporate your negatives and slides into any project. Canon's integrated Quick Automatic Retouching and Enhancement technology (QARE) automatically removes dirt and scratches from images, while STAD technology (Stabilized Tone-curve Auto Drawing) instinctively corrects tone and gamma fields and optimizes highlights and shadows. Richer, more robust images are at your fingertips.

Canon's advanced Z-Lid expansion top lifts vertically and lies flat to create the space needed for bulky items, such as books and magazines, to ensure clear, high-quality scans. Innovative included software gives you the power to scan multiple photos at once and transfer them to CDs easily. The D1250U2F scanner features the state-of-the-art USB 2.0 interface for incredibly fast image transfer and scanning speeds that are up to 4X faster (based on Canon industry standard testing) than USB 1.1-equipped Window-based computers.

After reading other folks' reviews on scanners and seeing all the problems they had with cheap ones, I decided to spend a bit more for something better. It was a good decision: the CanoScan D1250U2F has exceeded my expectations.
Software and hardware installation was straight forward, and the documentation is clear and simple. An important factor in my decision to buy the Canon was its inclusion of Adobe Photoshop Elements -- it is very intuitive software, powerful, and it interfaces well with the scanner.
Color rendition is excellent, and scanned photos appear well-balanced and clean. On my computer (running Windows XP, 1.8GHz, 384MB RAM) scanning at moderate resolutions is reasonably quick and downloads are prompt, even though I'm running with the USB 1.1 driver and not 2.0. Scanning a 3x5 photo at 600DPI takes about 15-20 seconds, maybe 10-15 seconds at 300DPI. A lot of that time is the scanner "adjusting the lamp" before the actual scan.
The film and slide scanning apparatus is easy to use and produces passable results. The images can be contrasty and the colors somewhat subdued, but in this price range I don't expect professional slide scanning. At 2400DPI it makes an image fairly close to the resolution of the film and is certainly good enough for most email-the-photo and web publishing applications.
The scanner also comes with optical character recognition (OCR) software, which works, although I did not find it intuitive. Also, the OCR software makes some bizarre decisions, especially concerning spelling correction, and seems eager to take control of the scanner, initiating scans at unexpected times.

So far, it works wonderfully. I'd read a millon reviews of other scanners -- Agfa, Umax, HP, Microtek etc., but after a while it all evens out. I couldn't afford the next level in 'professional' models and really didn't require all the gizmos that accompany them. So the Canon was my final choice.
Using Windows ME, it set up in less than 10 minutes. Hardware was found easily and there was no driver problem. I was scanning immediately. Up until this point I was using a friends scanner on Windows 98. A heavy model, 4 or 5 years old (clunky parallel/serial port etc.) and it was incredibly slow, and loud.
This was such a difference. I only tested a color photo (5 x 7) at 200% (dpi) and it did it in just under 30 seconds. I also tried a large color drawing from a book and it was surprisingly good. I'm sure the real test will be images at much higher res (but who really needs them that big?). Plus I've yet to try grayscale or scan from magazines/newspapers.
Using the 'descreen' option worked exceptionally well. It completely removed the moiree pattern from an album cover. Very surprised that it did it so well.
I'm also using it with an Adaptec USB 2.0 card. It's certainly fast. I haven't done really high-res stuff yet, but I'm sure it'll be better than what I'm used to.
The software is fine although I haven't used its archival/Photo record stuff. It seems aimed at beginners and may be useful. If you already have Photoshop 5 or 6, you probably won't need Photoshop Elements that comes with it.
While there are obviously better scanners out there with more gizmos and larger scan areas (at a higher price of course), I've no complaints. It seems ideal for my home/office use and is intended to scan family photos, vinyl album covers and wide array of other materials.

Attn: Amazon, please delete my "Going back in the morning" review currently in the 5 day review/processing.
Initially did have problems with the worst scans ever seen that both Photoshop Essentials and PaintShop Pro (I'm more adept with) couldn't correct. Muddy background, no fine details, and blotchy skin tones. Compared to so Epson scanners, Canon wasn't even in the running. While intending to take back in AM, when deleting scan's from harddrive, noticed how small the files were compared to the identical Epson scans. Reviewed the twain setting, and sure enough the Canon defaulted to 75 dpi, while the Epson were 300 dpi. Canon's instructions didn't indicate to review/set the dpi so was easilly overlooked.
Rescanned the original 4X6 photo @ 300 dpi for "like" comparisons. What a difference. I originally consided the Epson 1650 scan to be 'excellent' - just had software issues downgrading the scanner. This Canon matched it, easilly. Without touching up eather, fine detail in branches,leaves, strands of hair, and sweater knit. Crisp edges on clothing that was blurred with the 75 dpi scan. No dark blotches on skin that looked like 5:00 shaddow on guys or a female in desperate need on makeup. Between the two, neither matched the original, but that is normal with any 'first generation' copy. Both had a more reddish cast compared to the original that tended to enhance skin tones, but the Epson was more extreme in it's red bias, while the Canon was closer to natural.
Speed - excellent with USB 2.0. Software, no problem, but dated. OmniPage v9 provided, while v12 is in the stores and costs as much as the scanner.
