The solution image:
Canon email help was somewhat helpful, although they never solved the problem. To fix the vertical artifacts I had to lie to the scanner and tell it these were "Color Photos" instead of "Black and White Photos". Then everything worked fine. Must be some bug in the Black and White image processing algorithm.

The new spec comes in two flavors, 4K and 8K. 4K means the pixel count is 3,840 x 2,160 giving 8 megapixels per screen, instead of today's 1,080 x 1920 pixels which has 2 Megapixels. The 8K version packs 32 megapixels. This will be wonderful.
Already Peter Jackson and others are shooting in this new format. Get ready to re-buy all your favorite movies - again and start saving up for that new 4K screen.
But where will the madness end? I'll tell you. 576 megapixels. That's the estimated resolution of what the eye can really detect. Doing a little math for a 16x9 ration screen, [(16x)(9x) = 576Megapixels, solving for x gives us 2Megapixels] yields a screen 32Meg by 18Meg.
But, ultimately we will use individual glasses where an image is directly written to each retina by a tiny laser giving us crisp perfect 3D pictures. Yeah, lasers writing to our eye balls, creepy, but get over it - it's the future.

$(document).ready(letsStart);The "ready()" method kicks off when all the DOM has (pretty much) loaded, but excanvas.js still wasn't loaded. The solution was to replace "$(document).ready(letsStart);" with
window.onload = letsStart;Then my canvas app started working fine with an old version of IE.
BTW, my five year old daughter made this with www.MyDoodleDot.com
