Canon ( has addressed the growing need for on-the-go image capture solutions among Mac users with the introduction of the imageFORMULA P-150M “Scan-tini” personal scanner.

Utilizing the same technology and compact footprint in the original P-150 scanner, the imageFORMULA P-150M allows for quick connectivity and set up time via a single USB port that also serves as a power source from the attached computer. The embedded Canon CaptureOnTouch software lets Mac users start scanning without installing drivers or additional applications while also routing scan information directly to Evernote, a service for saving and organizing content across desktop, mobile and web devices.

Additional functionality is provided by a TWAIN driver for easy hardware integration with third-party Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, according to Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Groups, Canon U.S.A.. Technology features such as Color Dropout, Auto Color Correction and Advanced Text Enhancement II, allow the imageFORMULA P-150M to quickly and smoothly capture original hard copy documents with precision and exceptional image quality, he adds.

The scanner measures 11 x 3.7 x 1.6 inches and weighs about two pounds. It can scan letter-sized documents at up to 15 pages-per-minute (ppm) or 30 images-per-minute (ipm) in duplex scanning and holds 20 pages in its ADF. The Canon imageFORMULA P-150M “Scan-tini” personal document scanner has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$295.
