Canon LiDE 600F review

The Canon LiDE 600F film and photo scanner benefits from an amazingly low profile and sports a detachable film scan module.
|Pros:||Design, ease of use, USB-powered, film scans.|
|Cons:||Film scan unit needs careful handling.|
The Canon LiDE 600F is amazingly low profile thanks to its CIS (Contact Image Sensor) mechanism, and sports a detachable film scan module. It’s portable and requires no mains power supply as it obtains all its power via its USB port. It has a raft of one-touch external controls and is quiet in operation.
Reflective scan quality is good, if not quite top notch, and scan speed is the same. There is no waiting for a lamp to warm up too. The film scanner unit is very good, even featuring hardware FARE Level 3 dust and scratch removal, though the film unit feels rather delicate in use and excessive use of dust and scratch removal can result in a painted-like quality.
Overall, this is a superb all-rounder at a give-away price.
