Great Scanner!!/FORGET SOFTWARE
DO NOT INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE SCANNER/DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND EFFORT AND JUST TUCK THE INSTALL CD AWAY SOMEWHE DO NOT INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE SCANNER/DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND EFFORT AND JUST TUCK THE INSTALL CD AWAY SOMEWHERE. Simply plug the scanner in via the USB cable and slide the unlock switch on the bottom of the unit. Then go into "image capture" in your stock MAC applications and start scanning away. It took me 3 minutes to unpack the scanner and 1 minute to plug it in. DONE!! I am running Snow Leopard. NO PROBLEMS. If you are going to scan 35mm negatives I suppose you will have to wade through the messy Cannon CD install process, which many people are having major problems with. But for me I don't use my scanner for that............... …

Perfect with Snow Leopard

- Plugged in the scanner using the provided USB cable
- Put a picture on the scanner
- Launched Image Capture, the scanning software included w Snow Leopard
- Clicked Scan in Image Capture
Note that I did not install or attempt to install the Canon software provided in the box. The image scanned just fine and dropped right into my Pictures folder (you also have the option of dropping it into iPhoto, Mail, etc.) This is an excellent, small, low-volume scanner for use with a Mac. …

Works fine with Image Capture

But then it was not recognized by Image Capture until I removed the Canon drivers. Works fine now with Image Capture which is a handy scanner software bundled into Snow Leopard. I use it mainly for scanning photos. If I set Image Capture to "Detect Separate Items" it will separate out a group of multiple photos and drop them as individual jpegs into the designated file; a big help when scanning piles of photos. I would like to know if a comparable "Detect Separate Items" feature is available on a PC and/or other Mac software. Another handy feature of the LiDE 700F is power via the USB.2 cable which eliminates an additional power cord. …

Inappropriate for slides and negatives
The fact that this scanner is not compatible with Image Capture for transparent documents, was reason for me to return the scanner The fact that this scanner is not compatible with Image Capture for transparent documents, was reason for me to return the scanner to the shop. The provided canon software looks out-of-date and is not as flexible and professional as you'd expect from this scanner. The software is by far not sufficient for making hiqh-quality scans from negatives. I also wouldn't recommend this scanner for it's hardware design. The machine has a cheap plastic appearance. The cover cannot be closed properly when using the 'filmadaptor'. …

A good replacement for my, now non-OS X Mountain Lion complaint, old Lide 60. Canon Scanners have never gave me problems. The 700f A good replacement for my, now non-OS X Mountain Lion complaint, old Lide 60. Canon Scanners have never gave me problems. The 700f works beautifully, you don't need to install software on OS X 10.8, higher quality scans, faster capture time, good integration with Adobe Photoshop CS6...
BUT (of course)... let the screen or computer go to sleep, get ready to do the USB unplug/plug shuffle. The problem is present if you have the Canon software installed or not, if you put the hard drive to sleep or not, aaand, it will power off if the screen goes to sleep or the screensaver kicks in.
I can reach the cable in 2 seconds, so it is just an minor inconvenience. But it's something I never had to deal with my Canon Lide 20 or 60. -1 star for sleep problem, -1 star for no solutions/fixes on the Canon site. =/ …

Ok if you are running lion, not so good if you are on snow leopard
I use this with a couple machines. one running Lion, where the scanner is responsive and nicely integrated with the system os. Bu I use this with a couple machines. one running Lion, where the scanner is responsive and nicely integrated with the system os. But on snow leopard, you are going to have to fiddle with it and reboot a few times to be able to use it. I would say at least half the time i press one of the function keys on the scanner it works. when it doesn't sometimes unplugging the usb cable a few times gets it to recognize the scanner, but if that doesn't work you need to reboot and use the scanner apparently before the computer falls asleep. a complete PITA.
That said, when it works ... it seems pretty good. If you are on lion, i would say yes.
anything else .... um, not so much. …
