Wife Bought Me A New Scanner!! Test Scans... Thoughts?? - HeyFitzy - 10-29-2012 02:09 AM

Wife was at Wally World and spotted a sweet Cannon scanner for $29 (orig $38). She bought it for me so I could stop taking photos with my 4S and having an absurd amount of photos on my phone lol Smile I thought it was really awesome of her to do this. Hopefully this will also help me sell some cards as well Wink

Grabbed a few random cards to scan to try it out, let me know what you guys think. (note: I resized them so the scans would be friends to the forum page)

The Scanner/Printer is a Cannon Pixma MG2120. For $29 I think it does a decent job scanning. What do you guys think? Plus I'm also excited I FINALLY have a printer at home so I can print labels off through Pay-Pal so I or my no longer have to stop at the post office anymore after work to mail stuff out! Smile Woop! Woop!

it's a basic all in one for what you're doing. Working at a tech company it is everything you need. Sometimes people buy these 250$ scanner only machines because it really does make pictures better but why? no idea. Odds are if you bought a $100 all in one, you may have the same resolution scanner just different features for printing. You def received a good deal man.


but for baseball cards and a decent printer...not to mention $29 !!! I will say you are for sure Charlie Sheen and "Winning!"

:\ I wish I had one of these sent to Mikarlo instead of shipping my old one. It cost just a little less for shipping alone.

That seems to be a wonderful scanner and for the price, you got a steal! Shipping thru paypal is a great convenience too especially if you have a good regular mailman, sorry mail person Smile

Wondering how the scans look on a BGS slabbed card (or in a thicker one-touch type holder)? That's the one area where I think my scanner lacks.
