Detailed scanning

High-quality document and photo scanning is delivered with a resolution of 4800x4800dpi. The scanner also incorporates 48-bit internal colour depth, which enables a high level of photographic detail to be captured, as well as providing accurate colour reproduction so your originals always look their best.

A4 high-speed scanning is possible, with 300dpi scans delivered in approximately 14 seconds.

Practical styling

The scanner features a compact design and comes with a clip-on stand to enable upright scanning so it not only looks good but requires minimal desk space. The inclusion of an advanced Z-lid, featuring a double-hinge design, makes it possible to scan thick documents or even books.

Four EZ buttons covering the most common functions a user might need are a feature of the scanner. The buttons are for Copy, Scan, Email and to create PDFs – and performing each function is now as simple as pushing a button

The scanner is connected using a single USB cable, making it easy to install and easy to use. The USB cable connection also means there is no need for an AC adaptor to supply power to the scanner.

Creative features

A range of features help to give users an enhanced experience, among them the Auto Scan Mode. This mode automatically recognises the type of original that you place in the scanner – this could be a document or a photo – and then scans and saves the material using the appropriate settings. Auto Scan Mode is a beautifully simple one-click process.

Dust and scratch removal is also available for your photos, allowing you to improve and enhance images. This automatically reduces both dust and scratches, as well as helping to restore faded colour from old photos.


Software supplied with the scanner includes ArcSoft PhotoStudio and ScanGear. MP Navigator EX software makes it easy to operate your scanner and perform the most complex scanning operations from your PC or Mac.
