The CanoScan 5000F introduces a new generation of low-cost 2,400 dpi scanners that can deliver exceptional quality from any original, including printed documents, photos and 35mm film.
Film quality scanning
CanoScan 5000F is the scanner for the advanced home/office user. With a scanning capability of 2400 x 4800 dpi and a 48-bit colour depth, it offers a resolution that is close to the quality achieved by more expensive dedicated film scanners. This makes it particularly suitable for film scanning, including 35mm negatives and mounted slides. It combines advanced CCD technology and incorporates an electronic shutter, so scan times are quick - up to twice as fast as the competition.
Film Adapter Unit
The CanoScan 5000F is equipped with a Film Adapter Unit (FAU) and is capable of scanning 3 x 35mm film in a single pass. Canon's advanced FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement) technology, uses infra-red light to identify and map dust and scratches on the surface of the original, which are then removed from the scanned image. FARE Level 1, featured on the 5000F, is a new improved version, offering even greater accuracy.
Four EZ buttons
The CanoScan 5000F has four 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.
With Canon's fast Multi-Photo mode you can scan up to ten separate images at once and then work on each one separately. If images are turned sideways, the computer software will straighten them automatically. The fast Multi Photo mode can even recognise the type of original you use--whether it's a photo or 35mm film--and scan the material accordingly.
Equipped with software
The CanoScan 5000F comes with Arcsoft PhotoStudio for image editing, PhotoBase for image management, Omnipage SE OCR, NewSoft PageManager, and the Canon Toolbox for easy operation.
The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface is the new standard in PC connectivity, delivering scan speeds up to four times faster than standard USB scanners. This interface makes the CanoScan 5000F compatible with Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
