[sane-devel] Canon DR-7080C

Hi Allan,

the out put from scanimage -L is this:
pi at raspberrypi /etc/sane.d/dll.d $ scanimage -L
device `canon_dr:libusb:001:007' is a CANON DR-7080C scanner

So I think I am using the canon_dr backend but please correct me if i am
wrong or if there is a better way of telling. I am reading the SANE
documentation slowly but its not the easiest of reads!

I shall have a try with the command line using scanimage and see what I can
get. I have yet to put any time in this week as I had a server go pop which
has eaten my lunch times so far.

Also is there a list of valid output formats some where that can be used
with the format option?

Thanks again James
