Detailed Features

Compact, high speed scanning

A footprint measuring just 318mm x 278mm x 187mm ensures the DR-4010C is not only an incredibly compact departmental scanner – it’s one of the smallest in its class.

The DR-4010C handles all your scanning needs at identical high-speeds thanks to a 3-line CMOS sensor. Colour, black and white, and greyscale images are scanned at a swift 42 images per minute, and 84 images per minute using duplex mode. An auto colour detection function is incorporated, which detects which pages are in colour and which are in black-and-white and scans them accordingly. Documents with a combination of both therefore, can be instantly scanned in one complete batch – without needing to separate the pages first.

Superb image quality

The DR-4010C features a new shading mechanism, which ensures that – unlike some systems – paper dust cannot be accidentally adhered to the shading plate. So there are no unwelcome black lines on the images and no need for periodic cleaning of the shading plate to maintain quality. The 3-line CMOS sensor also ensures precise images with no colour staining.


An on-screen scan panel and easily selectable job buttons make all scanning jobs effortless. The DR-4010C also incorporates a useful facility which allows you to scan long documents, up to 1000mm in length.

Two paper paths, either straight or U-turn, provide maximum scanning flexibility. Using the straight paper path and a secondary document eject tray means that media - such as plastic cards - up to an impressive 546g/m2 can be scanned.

Extra power

A number of easily-selectable modes allow you to enhance the scanned legibility of harder-to-read documents, using Canon’s advanced text enhancement capabilities. Documents with patterned backgrounds, light text on light backgrounds, and halftone backgrounds, can all be captured and improved. Similarly, on thin paper a function can be selected to prevent bleed through occurring on the scanned image.
