Detailed Features

The new CanoScan 8000F is a major feat of technology, combining professional quality and professional productivity. It is fast, versatile, easy to use and able to scan up to twelve frames of 35 mm film in one pass.
Its 2400 x 4800 dpi optical resolution with 48-bit colour depth (internal and external) delivers extremely high quality from any original. The new CCD technology — incorporating diamond shaped pixels — extracts exceptional levels of detail from originals, resulting in high quality images suitable for enlargement and high-resolution printing.
The CanoScan 8000F is equipped with a large Film Adapter Unit (FAU) capable of scanning up to 12 frames of 35 mm film in one pass. Also featured is FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement) technology. This process maps dust and scratches on the surface of the original and removes these saving you retouching time. FARE Level 1, a new innovation featured on the 8000F, has been improved to offer even greater accuracy.
The CanoScan 8000F has four large easy-to-use scan buttons to operate the functions you use most for processing images, film negatives or slides: copying, scanning, filing, sending them to your e-mail program or creating PDF files.
The USB 2.0 High Speed interface is the new standard in PC connectivity, delivering scan speeds up to four times faster than standard USB scanners. And, it’s compatible with Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
With Canon's fast Multi-Photo mode you can scan up to ten separate images at once and then work on each one separately.
The CanoScan 8000F comes standard with Arcsoft PhotoStudio for image editing, PhotoBase for image management, Omnipage SE OCR, NewSoft PageManager 6, and Adobe Photoshop Elements for photo image adjustment.
