The industrys most compact and portable A4 duplex scanner
With a light chassis and ultra-compact footprint, the P-150 is ideal for both the small office and home office where space is at a premium and for mobile executives needing to scan documents while on the move.

A real productivity driver
The P-150 saves users time and helps them do more: simultaneously scanning both sides of a document at up to 15ppm; and featuring a class-leading 20-sheet automatic document feeder for speedy batch scanning.

And because its so easy to transport, enterprises can give remote workers easy access to scanning when theyre out of the office. This helps to speed the processing of important documents, such as purchase orders, invoices and commission claims delivering welcome productivity benefits and cost savings.

Perfect in a small office or home office environment.
The P-150s tiny footprint and stylish design means its equally at home in a SOHO environment. Our CaptureOnTouch software also makes it so simple for everyone to scan.

Ideal for the mobile executive
No other scanner fits so neatly into a briefcase, or laptop bag, and USB-based power up means that users dont have to carry an AC adapter either. Simply plug the P-150 into your laptop and start scanning. Built-in CaptureOnTouch lite software also lets mobile executives scan from other peoples PCs without installing an intrusive driver or new application.

Advanced and intuitive image processing
A Precision 600dpi sensor delivers outstanding image quality while a rich range of image-processing features, such as Auto-colour Detection, Auto Paper Size, Deskew Detection and Text Orientation Recognition, ensures superb scan quality and efficiency.

CaptureOnTouch for scanning simplicity

Canons CaptureOnTouch software provides easy and effective scanning, including simple one touch operation for routine tasks, such as scan-to-email or scan-to-desktop. Users also have the option to install cloud-based Evernote for quick easy uploading of information onto the web that can be conveniently accessed from anywhere.

Effortless interfacing
The P-150 interfaces with a whole range of other imaging applications, thanks to the included TWAIN and ISIS standard drivers. Additionally the P-150 is also Kofax Virtual Rescan (VRS) certified and ready.

Easy filing
Canons CaptureOnTouch software and integrated applications, such as BizCard Reader, let users scan and import business cards directly into their contacts file. PaperPort also enables better filing, management and retrieval of electronic files.

Deep green credentials
With USB Power and low 5W power draw, the P-150 is an environmentally-friendly choice. It easily meets ENERGY STAR compliance for energy efficiency and requiring less energy costs less to run.

Great looking contemporary design
A contemporary polished black-silk finish ensures that the P-150 is a great looking investment.

Multi-platform compatibility
The P-150 offers compatibility on Mac systems with an included Mac TWAIN driver and CaptureOnTouch software for Mac. Also a SANE compliant Linux driver is available for organisations preferring to develop with open architecture. This driver can be downloaded from Canons software support site.
