“The Canon design team have reinvented the portable scanner with the one of the fastest, lightest, quickest products in its class combined with a contemporary black-silk finish, demonstrating that we are leading the way in imaging technology, innovation and style in this market.

“Imagine the salesman or broker out on the road who has to transfer documents back to their office for processing. In recent years, they have had to travel perhaps once or twice a week to transfer the hardcopy documents to the office.  With its USB-powered fast scanning operation and ultra-compact design, the Canon imageFORMULA P-150 improves worker productivity so they can scan documents wherever they are and transfer documents back to their office instantly at the touch of a button.”
