New Canon Scanner is Film-Friendly

The freshly announced Canon CanoScan 9000F is designed with film-faithful photographers in mind.

Canon boasts that the new scanner has the highest resolution yet in its line, putting out film scans of 9600×9600 dpi in 48-bit color with its CCD sensor. The scanner can process mounted 35mm slides, 35mm filmstrips, and 120 formats.

In addition to improvements to standard scanner capabilities, the scanner comes loaded with FARE 3 technology, which Canon says provides automatic dust and scratch removal, as well as correction for fading, grain and backlight.

The CanoScan 9000F comes at a fairly reasonable price too, $250.


    Wow that is cheap!

    Geez, just when I was about to pull the trigger on a refurb Epson you go and post this. Now I have to spend twice as much :P

    Lets hope that is not a piece of crap like all other flatbeds in existence, why would they discontinue their FS4000 scanner for this kind of crap.. honestly.

    They could at least put a decent sensor in flatbeds (good SNR, not high dpi which is useless without good optics, which they do not put in flatbeds for some reason).
