Detailed Features

  • Breathtaking speed, impeccable quality and film capability

  • The CanoScan 3200F delivers the three things most demanded of a scanner: Speed, speed and speed. It will rip through A4 scans in just 15 seconds (600dpi) – half the time of conventional scanners. A Film Adaptor Unit (FAU) allows scanning of 35mm negatives and slides.
  • Less time waiting – and more time creating

  • Scanning no longer involves waiting around. A new ASIC controller chip processes files in record time and the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection delivers performance up to four times faster than standard USB.
  • Brilliant quality, stunning design

  • 1200x2400 dpi resolution and 48 bit colour-depth guarantee superb, crisp image quality. Clean, smooth lines combine with a stunning gloss finish to match function with form – a functioning work of art for the desk.
  • EZ buttons, Multi-photo and Z-lid: Making life easy

  • Four ‘EZ’ buttons can be individually configured to perform functions most often used – such as scanning straight to a PDF file or email attachment. Fast MultiPhoto mode creates individual de-skewed files from a single scan of randomly placed multiple photos. A clever Z-lid even allows quality scans from thick books and magazines.
  • Goodbye to manual retouching

  • Quality results from damaged originals is now a breeze - thanks to Canon’s QARE level 2. This intelligent software automatically restores photos to their original brilliance by removing dust and scratches, resaturating colour and reducing film grain effect – saving hours of manual retouching.
  • Powerful software

  • The 3200F comes with a host of powerful applications, including Ulead DVD PictureShow SE 2.0 Basic for creating DVD playable slide shows on CD-R, ArcSoft PhotoStudio 5.5 for image editing and management and OmniPage SE 2.0 for converting scanned documents to text. CanoScan Toolbox brings all the scanner applications together to keep the desktop tidy.
