As any real photographer knows when it comes to equipment, the proof is in the photograph. That being said, the following is a photographer oriented review in that image quality is valued first and foremost. I picked up my 9000 F Mark II two days ago and since then I have run a number of real-world tests on it. Unfortunately, I could not compare it to the original 9000 F since I don't have one available, however, my 9000 F Mark II seems to perform better based on the early reviews of the original 9000 F. I'll speak to that momentarily, but keep in mind that I cannot really account for the validity of anyone else's results. So in fact, there may be indeed be no difference in image quality between recent manufacturers of the two models. This is a summary of what I did found on the Mark II: Regarding Platen use with flat documents and photographs, I found the scanner to be very fast, and it produced excellent quality in terms of color accuracy and neutrality. In fact, after profiling it with two different IT8 targets using third-party software I found that all this resulted in was a loss of color neutrality and an exaggeration of contrast, which I really didn't care for on either count. In reality, the Canon ScanGear software produced the best results and was much easier to work with. At 300 dpi with 48 bit color it averaged around 9 seconds for an A4 size document and it produced a 51 MB Tiff file, which I found to be more than adequate for PDFs that were much better than than my MX870 or Lide600F. At 600 dpi it took 26 seconds to produce a 48 bit 102 MB Tiff file that would be better for larger reproductions. At 1200 dpi it took 1 min. and 44 seconds to produce a 409 MB 48 bit Tiff file that was, very critically speaking, sharper than the 600 dpi scan, however, you have to uncheck the thumbnail view in ScanGear to do this and you would never be able to tell the difference on an 8 x 10 anyway. So I'm going with 600 dpi as a standard for photographs, because frankly there's no good reason for more especially when you just start to see ink jet patterns and minute dust, aside from simple fact that a 102 MB file doesn't take a supercomputer linked to server farms for storage, unlike the 409 MB 1200 dpi files when things begin to add up. Film Scanning After a number of tests I found that 2400 dpi resulted in the sharpest scans, which may not seem to make sense at first but it was true nevertheless. Even with FARE Medium enabled it only took an average of 1 min. and 30 seconds on Kodachrome to produce a 40 MB 48 bit Tiff file. Increasing the resolution to 4800 dpi or 9600 dpi was a real loser on three fronts. First the sharpness got progressively worse at these "higher dpi settings", the times increased dramatically, as well as the file sizes, which reached an absurd 625 MB 48 bit Tiff, again with fare enabled. So 2400 dpi with FARE enabled (which did not effect the sharpness) was the winner! While again I couldn't compare the film performance with the 9000 F original I was able to compare it to my older dedicated film scanner the CanoScan FS4000US, which could only be used with third-party software and produced considerably more noise. In terms of resolution though the dedicated film scanner was better, although it wasn't very noticeable on 4 x 6 prints and took a good deal of advanced Photoshop techniques to fully utilize. So for smaller print reproductions, speed (1 min. 30 seconds compared to 8 min. 30 seconds on the old film scanner) and the color quality of the color negative scans I'll definitely use my 9000 F Mark II for archiving and cataloging and when I have one of those well-crafted images that I want to print large I'll simply rescan on the film scanner, which by the way is not supported on the newer operating systems unless you purchase third-party software that includes its own drivers. In conclusion, I am really happy with the scanner at least partially because I didn't expect magical results on critically high quality film images. As I mentioned earlier, even though I could not compare it to the original 9000 F I did not find any problems whatsoever in terms of overall image quality and ease-of-use based on my real-world tests, in fact I found that the new ScanGear produced excellent color overall and particularly with regard to color negatives. This differs from what some earlier reviews of the original 9000 F claimed to be issues. Even for film scans I found that the quality was really not an issue unless you're going 8 x 10 or larger with a really good original. Hope this helps.

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!!

Haters Need A Dose Of Reality...

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

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.

I bought this scanner in June 2014 to replace an old Microtek scanner. Haven't had any problems with this product. I noticed some reviews complaining about incompatibility with Windows 10. I have not had this problem since I upgraded from Win 8 to 10 early in 2015.

The scans are respectable for a scanner in this price category. Be prepared for it to stop working every time your OS is updated. This is the first Canon product I will be "round filing." Too bad.

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

I would have given 5 stars until recently, but Canon fails on keeping drivers up-to-date, which broke the integration into MacOS 10.11. All these nice scan buttons on the facia became in-operational with the latest version of MacOS. Canon acknowledges that this is the case, but don't even claim that they'd be working on a fix. I'm looking for a scanner of a different brand now.

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

I have been immensely pleased with this scanner. I got it primarily for scanning 35mm negatives and slides and the performance has been outstanding. I normally scan negatives at 2400 dpi even thought higher resolutions are available. I have been also scanning photos and the ability to scan up to 3 photos at once directly into Photoshop CS2 has proved to be very quick and and has also given me great results at 600 dpi. My only complaint has been the inability to scan 110 film negatives or any kind of 8mm/16mm frames even though the resolutions afforded would be adequate for most purposes.

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

At one time I had my own dark room enlarger. It had gotten boxed up when I moved to a another city. I had a shoe box my mother left with all different years of negatives. All the changes from film to the new cameras i thought that I probably not get to make prints from my old negatives. I have built a folder from slides, color negatives, and the old b/w negatives. I have made folders off albums that my wife had been wanting to save to disc.

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

My old scanner died years ago and I finally decided to purchase another one. I did a lot of research and the CanoScan had the best reviews overall. I decided to order it from the Canon website and was very happy with the additional service guarantee I would get by using their site. Scanner was super easy to install. It is also user friendly and easy to run as well.

Purchased he 9000F MarkII to replace a HP4050 that was no longer directly supported for connectivity with the Yosemite OS. The Canon printer is a significant improvement, providing faster, quieter operation, easier downloading, better quality image scans and more intuitive functionality.

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

I do not own any other scanners, so I cannot compare to other brands, but this scanner is great! I have many older slides and pictures that I am in the process of converting to digital. So far, the results have been excellent. Some of my older pictures were faded, and not only did the scanner make them sharper, but clearer, so now I can see items in the picture that I had not noticed before. It is great! I am very satisfied with the scanner. I tested with pictures, slides, and negatives, and all the results were very good.

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

Not much to say. Works better than expected. My wife is copying several thousand slides. She is well into the project and is very happy with the results. Tried other converter products with poor results. The high quality of these results are amazing. Colors are bright and vibrant. Many of the slides are over 50 years old. Would definitely recommend this product.

This is great. I have a lot of old b/w negatives to print. I am also doing copies of pictures from albums. I have 35mm slides, 35mm color and b/w negatives to print. The great part is that the old b/w negatives will fit in the tray provided with this unit. I have been putting copies on my computer and learning a lot about of what this unit can do.

By 

from Southern Blue Ridge Mountians

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

Canon has long been my favorite camera company, but the CanoScan 9000F scanner is much less than I would have hoped. While it can handle my medium format film quite well, it does a very poor job with my 35 mm. slides. I might add that the instructions as to how to access the Advanced Mode for scanning the larger format film was exceedingly obtuse. All in all, most disappointing, all things considered.

I look forward to learning how to run the scanner! I know why there was no printed documentation that came with the machine. 500 plus pages online. I generally print all manuals but not this one. Still looking for the quick start manual so I can start to scan some slides I took in Vietnam, Hong Kong, and Sydney back in 1968. Check back when I learn more about the Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II.

Two Things I Don't Like

By 

from Los Altos, CA

Comments about Canon CanoScan 9000F MARK II Color Image Scanner, 9600 x 9600 dpi:

I have been using the Canon 9000F MKII for six months to scan color slides that are very sharp. Typical scans are at 1800 or 2400 dpi. My major concern is the scan is never sharp. There had been a previous complaint about sharpness and for that user, the problem was resolved by changing out the scanner. I don't know if my problem is hardware or software. I always have to adjust the sharpness and only occasionally anything else. However, making this adjustment increases the file size from typically 700k to 2500k or more. My second concern is that after the initial scan, the file is in a jpg format which is lossy. Why couldn't it be in a loss less format (jif or png) until the final tweeks are made? Scan Gear provides only the one format , jpg. I'll struggle along but will always have a nagging feeling that something is wrong. IIs there a firmware adjustment that can be made?
