CopyCat Portable Scanner

Scan from top to bottom

If it’s not on the web it doesn’t exist. Well that’s what we’ve heard. Thankfully it’s a load of codswallop because plenty of pages exist outside the pixellated confines of your computer. But not for long because the amazing CopyCat Handheld Scanner is here to digitise anything and everything you fancy.

This ingenious battery-operated device allows you to capture books, magazine pages, photos, text and virtually any document you can think of in a matter of seconds, wherever you may roam. Simply sweep it across the required pages and presto, the high res images are written onto micro SD card (up to 32GB), ready for idiot-proof USB drag-and-drop transfer to PC or Mac.

CopyCat Portable Scanner
Capable of storing more than 30,000 pages, the CopyCat scans colour images at an impressive 600 dpi, and comes with nifty OCR software that converts text images into editable text in Word, Clipboard or Excel.*

Just think, armed with a CopyCat you can scan images from magazines in the dentist’s waiting room, scan reams of the nearest swot’s homework, copy photos on the fly and even store newspaper pages for subsequent study. (We’re thinking political comment, not Page 3. Honest).

Apparently this compact page muncher utilises real-time distortion compensation and capture-optimising feedback for great scans. Whatever. All we know is the in-depth Girls Aloud swimwear feature in last month’s Girl Band Weekly is now safely digitised and stored in our ‘important cultural icons’ file.

A great gizmo for anyone drowning in paperwork, the CopyCat is guaranteed to come in handy in all kinds of scenario, serious or frivolous. Scantastic!

*OCR software is PC only

Customer Reviews

I was just wondering if you could tell me how long the batteries last in this product? I'm extremely interested for getting one to save money on photocopying in my university library!
Emma - 18th September 2012
Firebox says: Hey Emma, the battery life on this is pretty good. However with most things it all depends on how long you use this for, prolonged continued use will drain the battery quicker than occasional use!
Do you send this product to spain?
Cyrille - 27th January 2012
Firebox says: We sure do!, Just pop it in your basket and go from there!
Hi Firebox. I've got a question: which one should I take? copycat or docuscan? we have like 10000000 old photos and I want to give this as a gift. Which oneshould I take?
Felix - 15th December 2011
Firebox says: Hi Felix, they're both so great, how could we choose? Seriously though, the specs are similar for both of them. If you really have 10000000 you might find scanning them all with the copycat quite tiring for your wrist! But you can't go wrong with either.
If I scan something and put it on my pc can I print it off if needed?
Ben - 25th September 2011
Firebox says: You sure can Ben.
Hi, I was wondering if this is compatible with laptops with Windows 7.

Firebox says: Sure is Jane.
Bought this at the end of April. Another brilliant product by ION. The results of the scans are truly amazing and this is without using the software provided as that is PC only and not Mac. The results of the scans are crystal clear and every word can be read easily. Highly recommended.
