Obviously, the S1100 is not limited to life on the road, you can effortlessly use this for your desktop computer as well.

I haven’t been this pleased by a product in a long time. At first, I was hesitant about the price, but after scanning a few hundred pictures, I know it’s worth it.

First, the rationale–I received a hand-scanner from work to do some research, where you manually rake it across a photo. Short of being a nightmare, it was, however, a pain. Dust was an issue (white lines/streaks), and stability as well (trying to prevent rotations and the smearing of photos that were too glossy). It was quick, and saved to onboard microSD, which was great, but then you have to go back and look at them on a computer to see what didn’t work. And, good luck rectifying those.

For some family photos (in the process of archiving hundreds of pounds), I decided to upgrade. Saw this scanner and the auto rotate/skew and auto-feed, and decided to give it a shot. Fujitsu SCANSNAP S1100 CLR 600DPI Bingo! Plug it in, and you’re seconds from scanning. It stays off/dormant when the cute lid/cover is closed, and when you open it, it lights up, and provokes your software.

There are a ton of options, but I set mine to grey scale and color versions of “600 dpi, let me feed you, you auto-name, and let me feed one after another, save them as different names, and put them in a folder”. Feed a picture, it spits it out, it’s saved automatically, and you can start putting the next picture in. Brilliant! When you’re done, click finish, and the scan window on the computer goes away. You can scan pictures that are merely an inch or so by an inch or so (it crops automatically!!), all the way up to anything that’s 8.5″ or so wide by however long.

It’s nice to look at the pictures in the folder as you’re scanning to ensure there’s no dust. Wait, dust? Yeah, some of these pictures are quite ancient, and now matter how much I wiped or sprayed air, dust gets in. Is this a problem? No. Fujitsu SCANSNAP S1100 CLR 600DPI Lift up the scanner lid, and there’s a strip of glass that’s a cinch to clean! After maybe 100 pictures, I noticed one white streak, cleaned it, and haven’t seen it since.

You can scan to JPG or PDF or whatever you’d like. In the slowest scanning mode, you can scan about 28 inches in length per minute. It doubles in speed when you switch from 600dpi to 300dpi. I’m doing high, but don’t mind the slow because it’s not too slow. I just scanned 28 8×10 photos and it took 12 minutes or so.

Quality is awesome–I couldn’t ask for better colors and images.

It will also do full duplex scans, apparently, where it prompts you to flip the paper.

UPDATE: I’ve scanned over 2,000 pictures with this. The only issue I have is that reds and brown seem to be ‘overmodulated’ and splotchy. In other words, light reds and browns go to this dark red shade, making a lot of the pictures useless.

I turned to my flatbed (which Fuji recommended, as opposed to this ScanSnap) for scanning any pictures with reds/browns of certain shades. For EVERYTHING else, colors, greys, it’s great. There are no controls for color correction, so nothing can be done about it. That’s what tech support at Fuji said. For old pictures, you’ll be dusting more often. Fujitsu SCANSNAP S1100 CLR 600DPI I use a strip of black thick paper to check and see if I have any dust in my sensor, taking a look at the image on the computer before moving on (every once in a while).
