4.0 out of 5 stars Superb scanner, May 11, 2009
D. Keough (Upstate, NY USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Canon CanoScan FS4000US - Film scanner - 35mm film - 4000 dpi x 4000 dpi - USB / Fast SCSI (Personal Computers)
Highest Resolution In Its Class
Detail is everything; and the FS4000US ensures each image looks its best. With 4000dpi optical resolution, you won't find any other scanner in this class that exceeds it. More resolution means more details show, important whether you're transferring images to your monitor or printing them as high-quality photo enlargements.

High Quality Color Reproduction
The FS4000US is at the head of its class-in color reproduction, too. This scanner's color is unusually clean because it's designed and built to accuracy standards higher than other conventional scanners. A high-brilliance cold cathode mercury fluorescent lamp, newly designed circuitry and 42 bit scanning works together to give you cleaner, smoother color gradients and improved highlight and shadow details. Precious details are free of defects like smearing and noise.

Eliminates Dust And Flaws Automatically
Only Canon could develop its own technology, FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement), to improve image quality during scanning. It's better than software only solutions because it uses both hardware and software to detect and remove imperfections like dust and scratches- and it does this at the time of the scanning. FARE saves you hours of work retouching.*FARE does not recognize Black and White or Kodachrome(tm) film.

Comprehensive Software Package Included
You have the freedom to control the scanner as much as you need. Adjust brightness, threshold values and contrast to your liking with FilmGet FS. Carefully manage your colors with ColorGear in Windows and ColorSync in Mac for a better match between your printer and monitor. And with PhotoShop LE, edit the images even further.

Speedy Continuous Batch Scanning
No matter what type of film format gets loaded, the FS4000 voraciously feeds and scans with speed and quality. Consecutively scanning up to six frames of 35 mm filmstrip, 40 frames of an APS cartridge or four mounted 35 mm (or APS) slides, this scanner makes short work of even big film archives. While scanning each batch, you can even preview shots from the Preview window displays.

Simple And Convenient Dual Interface
The FS4000 has just two easy interfaces -- one for direct connection (USB), the other for high-speed data transfer (SCSI-2), Mac or Windows, even Plug and Play. The Canoscan Setup Application makes it easy to install all the software provided. What could be simpler?
