Detailed Features

Productivity at speed

For easy, one push ad hoc scanning, you can scan 20ppm (40ipm duplex).

Higher image quality

However variable the types of documents to scan – from rough textured paper to feint text – with an optical resolution of upto 600 dpi the scanned result will be of the highest quality. The DR-2010M also includes a range of features to enhance the legibility of documents and improve OCR accuracy to create perfectly searchable PDFs.

Reliability at work

Boost user productivity and scanning reliability further with a range of features, including Text Orientation Recognition, Auto Colour Detection and Canon’s Rapid Recovery System.

Energy efficiency built-in

Save energy – and reduce costs – with the Energy Star compliant DR-2010M. Up to 50% more efficient than comparable rival models, the scanner can also be automatically switched on or off in line with the Mac it is attached to.

Impressive document handling

A slanted straight thru paper path provides trouble-free scanning. From thin and thick, to embossed media including business cards, photographs and A3 documents (in folio mode) the DR-2010M can scan mixed document types with no special preparation.

Powerful software

Canon’s versatile CaptureOnTouch software is included for simple, productive one touch, quick scanning operation, including scanning direct to iPhoto. Additional features come from flexible applications like Presto! PageManager for organising digital documents and Presto! Bizcard 5, which can set up important contact information in a searchable database. It also supports all Mac applications, such as iPhoto and Image Capture, through the included TWAIN driver.
