Detailed Features

Highly productive mobile scanning

The tiny P-208 delivers impressive double-sided scanning speeds up to 16ipm (B&W). The integrated 10-sheet ADF enables batch scanning for extra productivity: perfect for scanning contracts and associated documents. You can travel light with the P-208 as it has a footprint that's a little larger than a standard ruler and weighs only 600g. Powered directly via USB, it helps you maintain a high work rate anywhere in the home or on the road.

Plug-and-scan convenience on the go

The stylish, compact and ultra-lightweight P-208 provides true plug-and-scan convenience. In ‘AutoStart’ mode, connect the scanner via USB to your Windows or Mac computer and Canon’s built in CaptureOnTouch Lite image capture software launches immediately. You’re ready to scan in moments with no extra software or drivers required.

Scan various documents

The P-208 can scan a variety of media, from A4 to irregular-sized documents like embossed card, so it’s the perfect accessory for mobile users. Get organised at home and make space by scanning your household bills; or preserve your memories digitally by scanning your old photos in high quality, using a special feature that reproduces images as close to their originals as possible.

Easy-to-use image processing

The P-208’s range of image processing features includes auto colour detection, text orientation recognition and text enhancement – to deliver high quality images and save valuable time. For convenient and intuitive scanning use the Full Auto Mode feature that automatically applies the best settings for your document. Simply load up your documents and scan!

Flexible wireless scanning

For the freedom to scan wherever you are, combine the P-208 with the optional WU10 Wi-Fi and battery unit. Use it to wirelessly scan documents directly to your smart phone, tablet or desktop PC, or share the scanner amongst a group of users or devices via a network server or home router.

CaptureOnTouch Mobile

Connect the P-208 to the Optional WU10 Unit to use Canon's CaptureOnTouch Mobile app to scan directly to your iPhone®, iPad® or Android device. Save valuable time with features including double-sided one-pass document scanning. Advanced image processing tools such as auto document size detection, auto deskew and blank page deletion help you achieve consistently superior image quality.
