Canon LiDE 210

Canon LiDE Scanner

Using the Canon LiDE 210®:
General: The Canon LiDE 210 is a compact flatbed scanner that is powered off of the USB connection, reducing desk clutter. With a recent software driver update, it now saves to both .TIFF and .BMP files in uncompressed mode, eliminating the extra step in ImageJ to convert them to .TIFF files. It is important to run a calibration on the scanner at each new session (power-up) or whenever the scanner is moved. Failure to do so can result in significantly degraded and liney images. 

Compared to the Epson, the Canon is a bit slower in use due to several extra steps in the image capture, and the processing of scans as batches of up to 12 images at once.
