Canon imageFormula R10 Review at PCMag


The Canon imageFormula R10 portable sheetfed scanner, which relies on a USB connection, produces high-quality scans at a low price and is small enough to grab and go.

MSRP $194.00


    • Excellent CaptureOnTouch app
    • Accurate OCR
    • Relatively low purchase price
    • Light and compact


    • A little sluggish
    • Lacks mobile device support
    • Lacks wireless connectivity
    • No battery

Canon’s imageFormula R10 ($194) is a multipage sheetfed portable scanner designed primarily for connecting to a laptop on the road. It lacks any flavor of wireless connectivity, so you can’t use it on a network or with most handheld devices. It isn’t as fast or feature-rich as our Editors’ Choice winner, the Epson WorkForce ES-300W Portable Wireless Duplex Document Scanner ($300), but it costs considerably less and functions well. If all you need is to scan multipage documents reliably and accurately to your laptop, the imageFormula R10 is a cost-effective choice.
