Scan straight to the Cloud
Seamlessly scan and save your files to the cloud

The ScanSnap S1500M for Mac scans up to 20 pages per minute in color, grayscale, or black & white at an uncompromising 300 dpi resolution. Stack up to 50 pages into the automatic document feeder (ADF) and press the "SCAN" button to scan both sides of each page in a single pass. The S1500M automatically recognizes the size of each document, detects and corrects for skew, and shows images in their proper orientation with blank pages removed.

Intelligent Paper-Feed Detection

ScanSnap S1500M for Mac is equipped with a multi-feed detection sensor that can be turned on to help you avoid losing images. What's more, an interactive interface allows users to easily and quickly bypass intentional double-feeds such as a taped-receipt on an expense report or even a sticky note.
