Canon launches new scanner
Dubai, July 27, 2010
Canon Middle East, a subsidiary of Canon Europe, has launched its top-of-the-range photo and document scanner designed to meet the needs of photographers including scanning a range of film transparencies.
The CanoScan 9000F has evolved from the Canon CanoScan 8800F and features a number of improvements to boost its productivity, a statement said.
Quality has been enhanced to include a 9,600 x 9,600 dpi CCD sensor, while the 48-bit colour depth ensures accurate colour rendition and images suitable for enlargement and high-resolution printing, it added.
The new film adaptor allows more light to penetrate the unit, enabling faster speeds with one frame of 35mm negative film scanned in approximately 18 seconds (at 1,200dpi resolution).
Many of the best features of the Canon CanoScan 8800F have been retained, including mounted slides and medium format film in either positive or negative.
The seven EZ scan buttons offer simple, one-touch operation, and the auto-scan button offers automatic recognition type of originals, scanning and saving with suitable settings.
A fully integrated power adaptor is also now included, providing a compact and fully portable desktop scanner.
Canon’s unique film automatic retouching and enhancement (FARE) level 3 technology is integrated in the scanner, removing dust and restoring scratched film by using an infrared light that scans for physical defects on the film surface.
Canon has added the Auto Photo Fix II and Auto Document Fix features to provide the user with complete control over the output and quality of the final images.
The CanoScan 9000F comes with software such as Adobe PhotoShop Elements, ArcSoft PhotoStudio and the advanced SilverFast SE package, which provides photographers with greater control for film scanning.
It also comes with MP Navigator EX, which makes operating the scanner and performing complex operations simple and easy, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
