If you have a shoebox of old prints sitting that you wish you could scan quickly to create a digital image from your old film photos, the new Canon ImageFormula RS40 scanner could just be the thing you have been looking for.

The RS40 is essentially just an updated version of the recently-introduced Canon ImageFormula R40 - but adds an automatic print feed that will vastly speed up the digitizing process. RS40 can scan up to 40 photo prints in one go, and at an impressive speed of up to 30 prints a minute – so significantly quicker for archiving your image collection than using a flatbed scanner. Canon also claims the feature is jam-resistant - as uses ultrasonic sensors detect overlapping pages, and a Double Feed Release (DFR) system restarts your system quickly in the event of a jam.
