CanoScan Flatbed Photo & Document Scanners
Film scanning for the demanding professional
A high speed scanner capable of ripping through 12 x 35mm film transparencies in a single operation, with infra-red FARE Level 3 for automatic correction of film scans by eliminating dust, scratches and more.
When you have film to digitise, you need a scanner that will deliver fast, professional, reliable results. Which is why you will love having the speed, versatility and power of the CanoScan 8400F on your desk.
With 3200 x 6400dpi, the CanoScan 8400F delivers resolution better than many dedicated film scanners at a fraction of the cost. Its 48 bit colour depth ensures shades and tones are reproduced with quality and accuracy.
The 8400F comes with a suite of powerful software tools that deliver outstanding functionality, performance and productivity. The SilverFast SE driver gives professional level control over the scan process, reducing the requirement for post scan image processing. Award winning Adobe PhotoShop Elements provides powerful image processing and ScanSoft Ominpage SE Optical Character recognition completes the package.
FARE Level 3 infrared technology automatically removes dust and scratches and corrects heavily backlit film, while QARE level 3 offers the same features for photo scans.
Scan within 20 seconds of powering up, and view previews in just 2.1 seconds, thanks to high performance hybrid stepping motor and dual fluorescent lamps. A USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection ensures super fast data transfer.
Take documents straight from paper to PDF file with the CanoScan 8400F’s 'Scan to PDF' function. For ultimate flexibility, the scanner creates a palette of PDF pages, which can then be arranged or ordered as required. PDF files also have text automatically embedded at time of scanning for later searching or selection.
For larger documents, an image stitching function merges two scans to create a single, seamless image file. Adobe RGB colour space is supported for professional workflows, and 'Easy Colour Matching Print'¹ ensures full colour information is passed to compatible Canon inkjet printers for more faithful colour reproduction. Fast Multi-Photo mode creates multiple files from a single scan pass.
Four large scan buttons can be customised to perform the functions you use most: copying, scanning, filing, scanning direct to e-mail or straight to PDF (Portable Document Format).
