Whether you're scanning photos or documents get great results every time, thanks to Canon's innovative technology and unsurpassed optical expertise. 48-bit internal colour depth delivers exceptional colour accuracy whilst 1200 x 2400 dpi resolution captures the sharpest details. Freshen up old photos with a single click - QARE (Quality Automatic Retouching & Enhancement) removes dust and scratches, producing scans of photos that look as good as the day they were taken.
Enhance creativity with Canon's comprehensive software package. This includes ArcSoft PhotoStudio & PhotoBase for image editing and management and Caere OmniPage SE for converting scanned documents to text.
Scan multiple photos in a single operation. Skewed images are straightened automatically. They can then be filed, forwarded as email attachments or printed directly. It's the simplest and most efficient way to scan multiple photos - and Hi-Speed USB processing saves you even more time.
Three 'EZ' buttons can be configured to simplify standard tasks, so with just one touch you can scan images directly to a file, copy them or send them straight to your email programme. Canon's advanced Z-lid, with a double hinge, allows easy scanning of thick documents and books.
