Default Scanner

My Canon 5600F unfortunately no longer works with the software on my new Macbook.

Any suggestions on a new flatbed scanner great for scanning cards that works with Mac (macOS Monterey or newer)?

Make sure it's a CCD scanner. The cheap ones are not, those are the scans you see with the cards out of focus (depth of field problem on cheap ones). You'll probably find a lot of recommendations for Epson V series if you search the forum. I have an Epson V600 connected to an iMac and it scans wonderfully, never had a problem. You can see some of the scans in the link in my sig if you'd like.

Well, it depends. It is a scam on Apple’s part by making old peripherals obsolete on new software

Yep. I had a Canon scanner that I used for scanning 4 x 5 negatives that eventually became incompatible with my Mac. It was cheaper to buy an old Mac off ebay that was compatible to the Canon rather than buy a new scanner that could do 4 x 5 negatives.

I am following this as well. I have an Epson V30. It's old (by technology standards), but works great on PSA cards. For SGC cards it's a different story. It makes them all look dirty and trashy. With a ton of lint in the background, even with the "lint filter" turned on. Can anyone recommend a scanner that does great with both PSA and SGC?

The bed is 12 x 8 so it might not be, I am not sure. I don't collect comics .

Epson V700 here.

If you like your Canon 5600F you might want to look into "Silverfast 8" scanner software and see if it can integrate with your Canon. Might cost a few bucks, but cheaper then buying a newer competent scanner.

A few years ago, my Epson scanner software stopped working for me after my Windows PC did an update. Couldn't get it to work for anything. Thought I'd have to trash my Epson, that I loved.

Found the Silverfast program and have been using it ever since. My Epson drivers eventually updated to the point I could use my Epson software again, over a year later or so, but I found the Silverfast software superior to it and never went back.

I bought a Epson V600 a few years ago and followed the tutorial from another board member. Very Happy with the results for all the cards encased and raw.

It is pretty big and was a little hard to find as they were out of stock at many retailers. I only use it for cards and keep it under my desk and only pull it out when I use it.

Does anybody have a V700 with macOS Monterey software (or newer)? I just want to make sure I don't end up getting the V700 and it doesn't work with my current computer.

And maybe I'll try the Silverfast 6 with my current Canon 5600f.
Just a bummer, I love the 5600f but Apple's software update just no longer allows me to use it.

I had an Epson V30 (I think) previously, but it broke within 2 years. I've had a Canon 9000F Mark II for 4 or so years and it's awesome.

I still even have the original protective plastic on top, because I'm similar to Raymond's mom on Everybody Loves Raymond. I figure it will prevent dust from getting into the electrical!

Edited to add that I purchased the 9000F in 2018 for $169.99 before tax. Glad I bought in 2018!
