The official marketing text of Canon CanoScan 8400F as supplied by the manufacturer
A high speed scanner capable of ripping through 12 x 35mm film transparencies in a single operation, with infra-red FARE Level 3 for automatic correction of film scans by eliminating dust, scratches and more.

Film scanning
With 3200 x 6400dpi, the CanoScan 8400F delivers resolution better than many dedicated film scanners at a fraction of the cost. Its 48 bit colour depth ensures shades and tones are reproduced with quality and accuracy.

No more manual retouching
FARE Level 3 infrared technology automatically removes dust and scratches and corrects heavily backlit film, while QARE level 3 offers the same features for photo scans.

Professional speed
Scan within 20 seconds of powering up, and view previews in just 2.1 seconds, thanks to high performance hybrid stepping motor and dual fluorescent lamps. A USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection ensures super fast data transfer.

Complete versatility
Take documents straight from paper to PDF file with the CanoScan 8400F's 'Scan to PDF' function. For ultimate flexibility, the scanner creates a palette of PDF pages, which can then be arranged or ordered as required. PDF files also have text automatically embedded at time of scanning for later searching or selection.

For larger documents, an image stitching function merges two scans to create a single, seamless image file. Adobe RGB colour space is supported for professional workflows, and 'Easy Colour Matching Print'¹ ensures full colour information is passed to compatible Canon inkjet printers for more faithful colour reproduction. Fast Multi-Photo mode creates multiple files from a single scan pass.

An extensive software package includes award winning Adobe Photoshop elements 2.0 and OmniPage SE OCR. To help keep things organised, CanoScan Toolbox 4.8 software sits always-at-the-ready on your desktop, with a simple button for all common scan functions such as Scan to PDF or OCR.

Seamless scanning
Four large scan buttons can be customised to perform the functions you use most: copying, scanning, filing, scanning direct to e-mail or straight to PDF (Portable Document Format).

Maximum scan size*
210 x 297 mm
Optical scanning resolution*
How many pixels a scanner can see. Most commonly, this is measured in dots per inch (dpi).For example, a typical flatbed scanner will use a scanning head with 300 sensors per inch, so it can sample 300 dots per inch (dpi) in one direction. To scan in the other direction, it will move the scanning head along the page, stopping 300 times per inch, so it can scan 300 dpi in the other direction as well. This scanner would have an optical resolution of 300 x 300 dpi. Some manufacturers stop the scanning head more frequently as it moves down the page, so their machines have resolutions of 300 x 600 dpi or 300x1200 dpi.
3200 x 6400 DPI

Scanner type*
A scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image.
