For added convenience, four easy buttons - Copy, Scan, PDF, and E-Mail - automate the scanning process, so your projects can get done more quickly. Just position your original, select the use for the image, and in seconds it's ready to go.
You're going to love the results. The LiDE 500F scanner delivers a maximum 2400 x 4800 color dpi resolution and 48-bit color depth, for over 281 trillion possible colors. The unique Doubled-Hinge expansion top lifts approx. 1 inch vertically and lays flat on the page to help ensure clear, sharp scans with minimal light distortion.
Scan your old negatives. Here's a simple solution for all those old negatives you've got sitting in boxes: just place them in the LiDE 500F's film adapter and press the Scan button! These valuable images can be archived on your computer, safe from heat, humidity and dust, and then printed for family and friends. FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement) Level 3 is a built-in film retouching technology that automatically removes much of the dust and scratches that may appear on your originals. The result? The final scans of dusty and scratched film can look as good as new.
New Industrial Design. The Canon LiDE 500F scanner has the latest and sleekest design of the Canon scanner lineup. Able to stand on its side while scanning, it allows the user to save space on the already crowded desk surface.
