Canon launches CanoScan LiDE 700F - Intelligent 3-way scanning for rapid, high-resolution results.
Canon introduces the CanoScan LiDE 700F, the first Canon scanner to offer 9600x9600dpi optical resolution for film. With a space-saving 3-way design, the CanoScan LiDE 700F – which replaces the CanoScan 4400F – delivers rapid, high-quality scanning of documents, photos and 35mm film. A user-friendly interface and attractive price point makes the CanoScan LiDE 700F equally suited to consumer and business users.
Outstanding photo, film and document scans in seconds
Boasting the highest resolution of any Canon consumer scanner to date, the CanoScan LiDE 700F uses Canon’s unique LiDE technology to deliver scanning at resolutions of up to 9600dpi. At maximum photo resolution of 4800dpi, images can be captured in intricate detail, and extra-large enlargements produced. For superb-quality capture from individual 35mm film frames at 9600dpi, the CanoScan LiDE 700F also includes a clip-on film scanning unit.
LiDE technology also enables near-instant warm-up times, and allows the CanoScan LiDE 700F to complete an A4 full colour scan at 300dpi in just 12 seconds – ensuring exceptional productivity for users.
Slim, lightweight and multifunctional
LiDE technology allows the CanoScan LiDE 700F to achieve a compact, lightweight design. Its innovative 3-way design principle means that the CanoScan LiDE 700F can be used in portrait, landscape or upright positions – making it ideal for desktop environments with limited space. A clever 180 degree lid hinge on the right hand side and built-in flip out stand facilitates the CanoScan LiDE 700F’s “anywhere, any way” functionality.
Power is delivered solely via a high-speed USB connection to PC – eliminating the need for cumbersome power cables, further enhancing the CanoScan LiDE 700F’s space-saving credentials.
Easy to use
The CanoScan LiDE 700F’s sleek design is punctuated with four simple EZ buttons, fully configurable to individual needs. These allow the user to Scan, Copy, Email, and produce PDF documents at a single touch.
Users can also use the CanoScan LiDE 700F’s Auto Scan Mode to create scans without the need for choosing settings manually. Original material placed on the scanner is automatically detected and recognised as either text or image content. Scan settings are then optimised accordingly, before material is scanned and saved in PDF or JPEG form.
For greater control and the highest standard in image scanning, the CanoScan LiDE 700F includes QARE dust and scratch removal for photos – technology that automatically reduces dust, scratches and grain effect, as well as restoring faded colour, all with a few clicks.
Canon’s comprehensive MP Navigator EX software adds functionality such as PDF editing, a search function, over 15 language OCR and Auto Photo Fix. A USB cable is also included for quick and easy installation.
