Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

It scans more quickly than the 220, at about seven seconds for black and white and 10 for color.
Canon’s CanoScan 9000F was always a reasonably quick scanner and the Mark II increases this, particularly for higher resolution scans.
The Canon CanoScan 9000F MKII is the fastest, easiest to use, and highest quality flatbed scanner we tested.
Flatbed scanners are the only way to go should you want a versatile unit to scan photos at high resolution, and the Canoscan 9000F Mark II ticks all the right boxes.
It is smooth, quiet, and quick, unlike many scanners I have used in the past.

What reviewers didn't like

It’s also a bit clunky to set it up to scan film: you have to remove an entire panel on the top lid and fit the film holder into a precise spot on the scanner glass.
What it lacks is a good application to scan things too, which may or may not be a problem for you, but is definitely a step back from the original CanoScan 9000F provision.
It is slower and not quite as easy to use, but produced digital files that are more faithful to the originals.
It might be a tad bigger than its cousins (many of which would be using CMOS rather than CCD technology) but features like FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement) will more than make up for that.
Another flat-bed distinction is the unusual design of 12-line CCDs that produce a Raw file that requires two to four times as much software sharpening compared to a traditional three-line CCD sensor of a dedicated film scanner.
