Easy film scanning

The CanoScan 3000F comes with a special Film Adaptor Unit so you can effectively develop your 35mm slides and negatives digitally, on your computer!

Packed with technology yet easy to use

This scanner’s USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface makes it up to four times faster than conventional USB for high productivity. And, it’s compatible with Windows® 98, Me, 2000, and XP (Home or Professional) so you’ll be up and running in minutes.

EZ buttons — easy!

The CanoScan 3000F is equipped with three EZ Buttons which you can configure to perform the functions you use most. One button can automate the entire scanning process, whether to scan films or images, copy them or send them to your e-mail program. What could be easier?

Fast Multi-Photo mode

Place ten photos on the glass plate, scan them and what do you get? With any standard scanner, a 'picture' of ten pictures. With Canon's Fast Multi-Photo mode, you get ten separate images to work on. If images are skewed, they will be straightened automatically and can be sent directly as e-mail attachments or to a printer for unsurpassed productivity.

Powerful software

Standard with the CanoScan 3000F, you get Arcsoft PhotoStudio for image editing, PhotoBase for image management, OmniPage SE OCR and the Canon Toolbox for easy operation.


Canon’s ingenious scanner lid lets you scan books and magazines as easily as single sheets of paper.

Fast, high-quality film scanning just got more affordable.
