Canon ImageFormula P-215 Review

Scan anything, anywhere

Canon ImageFormula P-215

Though the Canon
ImageFormula P-215 isn’t the
lightest or smallest portable
scanners out there, it does
have a lot to offer. A duplex
scanner, dedicated card
scanner, 20 sheet Document
Feeder tray and more
importantly, the ability to be
stashed in a bag, make it an
attractive choice.
Measuring 285x95x40mm
(WxDxH), it weighs a kilo. The
scanner does not require a
PSU unit, hence there is no
need to cart anything else
around. Encased in all-black
plastic with a silver border on
the bezel, P-215 is a good
looking device. It has a USB
port for connectivity along with
a regular port for charging
and a Kensington lock.
Installing the scanner is an
easy process, though the
main installer only installs
CaptureOnTouch including
necessary drivers. To make
use of all available functions,
you need to install other
utilities manually.
The P-215 can scan
different sized documents
from 2× to 8.4x14in, at a
speed of 15 pages per
minute. The 20-sheet
document feeder is handy
while scanning multiple jobs.
The P-215 took just 39
seconds to scan a sheaf of 15
pages at 150DPI resolution in
mono. The same set took
around 59 seconds when we
scanned the same pages in
colour. At 300DPI, the
scanning took almost a
minute and a half and 600DPI
took even.
Happily, it supports duplex
scanning, which means you’ll
be able to scan both sides of
a paper in a single scan.
Duplexing comes very handy
while scanning volumes of
data simultaneously.
As per our test results, we
are quite happy with the
speed across modes, with
decent output quality. We
recommend this product to
users who value quality and
need to scan documents very
