Detailed Features

Time-saving retouching

Canon's new FARE* Level 2 technology saves you hours of film retouching time and gives remarkable results. Dust and scratch marks are automatically removed using an advanced infra-red process. Faded films are re-saturated with colour reconstruction and even grainy films are corrected with grain equalisation - allowing you to generate perfect scans even from damaged film.

  • * Film Automatic Retouching & Enhancement
