Fortunately, I found the answer quite by accident. It turns out that in order to make the scanner work for my situation (and maybe yours), I simply had to uncheck the "Switches On/Off the Thumbnails View Mode" button and that allowed me to manually create the right size crops. It also means I can use the 35mm strip holder instead of the 35mm slide holder and leave the old slides in their metal slide magazine holders, saving me even more time.
After figuring that out, I'm happy to say this scanner exceeds my expectations and makes me a happy camper now that I can no longer use my Konica Dimage Scan Dual IV with my Vista-based PC. The hardware is very sturdy and speed is great. 1200 DPI scans take less than a minute each.
If you want more information on how to manually set-up to scan older slides, leave me your email as a comment to this review.
Hope that helps.
I've scanned negatives of prints and found out that it is better to scan the negative. I've scann hundreds of slides thus far and am happy with the results. I've gotten tons of compliments on them on Flickr & facebook on how great they look.
There are several modes for scanning and you have to experiment with them when scanning certain types of post cards and news print or magazines pictures. I have scanned old balck and white negatives from the 1920's and I don't know how it does it to turn out a picture but it does. There are some self correctiong modes for removing dust, making it brighter, darker and variuos pixel sizes. The bigger you want it the longer it takes to scan.
Instead of zooming in a cropping a slide or a negative, scan it at the full height & width of the image. After the picture is created you go back to the fold it was saved in and you can zoom in and crop . The plastic tray that holds negatives can hold two strips up to about 6-7" long and will scan all the images. Occasionally the scan heas trouble seeing night shots and it may not scan at full frame or it might miss a few entirely. If there is an image that got cropped by the camera because it was the very last shot then you may have to manually highlight that part of the negative in order for it to scan.
Directions on how to use are kind of sparse and most of what I learned was by trial and error or reading comments here or on dpreview.
The unit is fairly large and will take up a good chunk of desk, I don't have it set up right now due to room re-modleing and lack of space. I wish there were less cables and wires that need to be attactched for this unit to work.
Ocassionally the unit will stall or lock up and no matter what you press or do all you here is a "ping" sound. You basically have to shut everything down everything and re-boot the computer. This seems to happen more if I scan over 15 images and don't save them to a file folder.
I was impressed by the fact that it would automatically crop different size images being scanned. However, I soon discovered that it did not always do the autocrop and when I manually cropped, it did not save the cropped image. Hopefully the help screen will tell me what I did wrong.
I scanned some 35mm negatives and it will do up to 12 images in one session and take about 8 minutes. I also tested the scanning of some 35mm color slides and it will do 4 in one session and take about 2 minutes. The slides just drop into the holder. I figure that if I sat at the computer and paid attention, I could scan about 60 color slides an hour, giving time for placing them in the holder and then saving the images. This does not include time for the auto retouch software to work. My saved unretouched color slides are about 1.5 MB in size when saved as a JPEG.
Overall I am very pleased with my 8800F purchase. One note of displeasrue was the fact that the Canon website would not allow me to register my purchase as part of the setup/install process. It took all of the information, but then rejected it.
