Hi Team

I'm looking for a new scanner to convert my slides and negatives into digital images and I have decided that the Canon 8800F is best suited to my needs. The only other real contender is the HP six-colour scanner but it is apparently very slow.

Problem is, Pricespy has two listings, at sufficient difference in pricing and description to at least suggest that there could be two models. Canon's website is no help, and wider searching brought no certainty either, so does anybody know if they are one and the same, which I suspect they are?

From Pricespy:

Canon CS8800F Highspeed Scanner 28 prices

Canon CanoScan 8800F Flatbed Scanner 2 prices

Thanks. That's what I figured.

Interesting that one version is priced somewhat higher than the other though.

What's in a name, apart from $$$!

Cynical mind suggests that the scanners might be the same for paper scan but maybe only one does the slide/negative copy esp if there is a big price difference
