Canon announce the ultra slim and stylish CanoScan LiDE 35 flatbed scanner.
Canon's LiDE sensor technology allows an exceptionally thin 38mm body delivering
1200 x 2400 dpi scanning at 48-bit colour depth. The scanner also features QARE
Level 2 dust and scratch removal, fast scan speeds and a comprehensive software
package. Drawing all the power it needs from its USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface,
the CanoScan LiDE 35 dispenses with the need for untidy power cables.
"The CanoScan LiDE 35 is a crucial product for Canon - it is our star
entry level scanner,"
said Malcolm Hills, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging,
UK and Ireland. "With its striking looks, advanced technology and high
speed performance, the CanoScan LiDE 35 offers unmatched quality and value for
LiDE scanners are renowned for their exceptional designs, which excel in both
aesthetics and functionality. The clip-on vertical stand supplied saves valuable
desk-space by allowing upright storage and operation, an option simply not possible
with traditional CCD scanners. A clever Z-lid accommodates the scanning of bulky
items such as books and magazines. A contemporary metal finish completes a sleek
minimalist design, which combines with the scanner's tiny footprint to make
the device suitable for both home and office environments.
The CanoScan LiDE 35 is the only scanner at this price point to offer image
correction as advanced as that provided by Canon's QARE Level 2 software. This
intelligent software automatically restores damaged and faded photos to their
original brilliance by removing dust and scratches, re-saturating colour and
reducing film grain effect with a few simple clicks. With its intuitive interface,
QARE Level 2 is easy to use and saves hours of manual retouching.
High speed scanning
The combination of fast scanning engine, USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface and Fast
Multi-Photo mode ensure that the CanoScan LiDE 35 provides its high quality
scans without wasting time: a full colour A4 preview takes just nine seconds.
USB cable connection makes for automatic and immediate driver installation,
while the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface is up to four times faster than conventional
USB interfaces. Multi-Photo mode saves time by creating individual files from
a single pass scan of multiple photos. Moreover, originals can be spread out
on the glass with minimal regard for alignment or arrangement, since Multi-Photo
automatically identifies, crops and de-skews individual images.
For increased functionality and additional value, the CanoScan LiDE 35 is bundled
with high quality OCR, imaging and document management software.
