Product Description

Amazon.com

Created to work with virtually every Advanced Photo System and 35mm film, the Canon FS4000US film scanner provides an impressive 4,000 dpi optical resolution. Including both SCSI-2 and USB interfaces, 14-bit A/D conversion, and autofocus, this scanner offers an excellent mix of professional functions. Canon's FARE technology automatically detects and corrects flaws on the film, while the automatic film type detection easily distinguishes between slides, 35mm, and APS. It is compatible with both Macintosh and PC systems. Adobe Photoshop LE and Canon's FilmGet drivers are included with the scanner, as is a one-year onsite warranty.

From the Manufacturer

This high-speed film scanner is designed for use with virtually all 35mm and Advanced Photo System (APS) films. The CanoScan FS4000US is a high-performance, desktop film scanner that offers 4,000 dpi optical resolution at 42 bits. The scanner accepts 35mm and APS films, including slide film, and helps bridge the gap between analog and digital imaging by providing a means of downloading conventional photographs into a computer for creating prints, Photo CDs, e-mail, and personal Web sites.

Features include 4,000 dpi optical resolution for outstanding clarity, plus 14-bit A/D conversion for exceptional gradation and accurate color reproduction; two built-in interfaces--USB for easy connection to personal computers and SCSI-2 for high-speed data transfer; FARE, a Canon-developed dust and scratch "detect and correct" function; automatic film type detection; autofocus; and a full range of scanning functions using FilmGet FS for Windows and Mac.

Given the price, this is a great film scanner. But, it's not perfect.
First, it produces wonderful images with color depths up to 42 bits. Its scratch-removal system (FARE) works well (within limitations), and it seems reasonably quick (though I have nothing with which to compare it). Since it supports both SCSI-2 and USB, its versatility is hard to find - even in more expensive models. Setup was a snap. I just plugged it into my (Windows ME) USB port, added the software and voila!
There are some limitations: Unlike competing Nikon models, there are no accessories. And the scanner is made for 35mm only (slides, negatives and APS). As I said above, FARE seems to work very well. But if a negative is too scratched, the software will fail and may even hang your system.

This is a very good scanner. The FARE system has worked well for me and that is the reason I bought it. I have the HP PhotoSmart S20 as well. While the scanners are roughly in the same price range, each has its strengths and weaknesses. The FS4000US is SLOWER and the images have more grain than the S20, but the images appear sharper, with better color depth. As to speed, I don't have to spend hours removing dust and scratches manually. And a neat s/w package called "NeatImages" workes wonders with the grain. Bottom line, total processing time is quicker with the FS400US, and the finished product is noticably better.

I've been using the FS4000 since January. I previously had a 2400dpi Minolta DImage II(I believe!) that kept on freezing up and was exceptionally slow. I can't comment in absolute terms about the speed of the FS4000 but it is certainly way faster than the old Minolta. My deduction of one star (more properly about 1/2 a star)is due to the fact the scanner still seems like it could be a lot faster - perception only, maybe, but still....
I have been scanning slides at the highest resolution with the noise reduction on but no color management or adjustments made during scanning (preferring to work on the scanned image in Photoshop). Overall scan quality is excellent with no issues from a functional or performance perspective from any of the approx. 1000 scans done to date. The noise reduction capabilities are the primary benefit I notice in that the time spent touching up dust and minor scratches afterwards is very very minor (and usually due to forgetting to clean the slides in the first place!). Color balance and detail resolution are far superior to what I experienced beforehand. Desk footprint is great and noise level while scanning is comfortable.
If I had any complaint at all it is that the scans can reveal problems in the original image such as a lack of sharpness in some areas of the image due to me using lower quality lenses in the old days - such problems don't show up quite so easily either when viewing the slides through a loupe or after the 2400dpi scans - serves me right for using cheap glass, I guess.

I love this scanner, but I am very disappointed with Canon right now. I called them to purchase additional slide and film holders, and I was told that the slide holders are no longer available. I have been searching for weeks trying to find a slide holder. I bought this scanner to specifically scan my slides. If anyone knows where I can purchase slider holders for the CanoScan FS4000US please let me know. I really like this scanner, but I am very disappointed right now.
