Canon imageFormula R50 Office Document Scanner – By Contributing Editor, William Harrel – October 29, 2021

A step up from the Canon imageFormula R40, the Canon imageFormula R50 Office Document Scanner ($529) is an entry-level to midrange sheetfed document scanner designed for home-based and small offices. It directly competes with our Editors’ Choice recipient, Fujitsu’s $495 ScanSnap iX1600. Like most Canon scanners, the R50 is easy to set up and use, and it lives up to its speed rating of 40 pages per minute (ppm). During my tests, it converted scanned text to editable text with impressive accuracy. Though it doesn’t stand out or break any new ground and therefore falls short of our Editors’ Choice nod, it’s a strong contender that provides excellent value.
