Product information: CanoScan 5600F A4 Flatbed Scanner 4800 x 9600 dpi Hi-Speed USBWith a maximum resolution of 4800 x 9600dpi, this advanced CCD technology scanner has the capacity to deliver scans with very high levels of clarity, photographic detail and with accurate color reproduction. The 48-bit input ensures the accuracy of colors and brings the best out of your images every time. The scanner has the capacity to create 300dpi A4 scans in a remarkably fast time of approximately 11 seconds.
Both 35mm film and slide scanning are delivered with exceptional quality. It is possible to scan film straight into your PC or Mac. The inclusion of a high-brightness white LED for reflective scans equals fast operation. This is superbly demonstrated via zero warm-up, so there is no need for the user to wait around before they can begin scanning.
This is a sophisticated scanner with many creative functions, but it remains easy to use. Seven EZ buttons are provided - they are all on the front of the scanner - and these allow the most common tasks to be performed with one-click. The buttons cover copy, scan, email and creating PDFs. The buttons can also be configured by the user to suit their individual preferences.
Auto scan mode is another creative, yet straightforward feature. The scanner automatically senses what is to be scanned - document or photo - and scans and saves these using settings appropriate to the original. This can be completed from the one-click software menu.
