The P-150’s black piano finish, compact design and fast USB-powered scanning capabilities up to 15ppm appeals to both SOHO and corporate users alike. As one of the smallest and fastest duplex A4 scanners in its class, it is perfect for mobile executives to instantly transfer documents back to the office whilst visiting customers or travelling on business.

Sean Suematsu, European Document Scanning Solutions Director, Canon Europe says, “After the successful launch of the P-150 we received overwhelming interest from the Mac community, so we are pleased to now be able to announce that the P-150 can now also be used on Mac systems. The P-150’s eye-catching design, innovative technology and portability will no doubt appeal to the style conscious Apple Mac market.”

Capturing and sharing information on the cloud in networked environments can now be made easy and convenient with the new Mac and latest PC versions of Canon’s CaptureOnTouch software.
