Resolution. Style. Film and Photo Scanning. Photo and film scanning. The CanoScan LiDE 80 Color Image Scanner has all the power and performance you need for scanning detailed images, copying documents and e-mailing your favorite photos - even preserving your original negatives.
High speed, high performance. The resolution of the LiDE 80 scanner reaches up to an exceptional 2400 x 4800 dpi for film and photos with 48-bit color depth for over 281 trillion possible colors. Yes, trillion. You can scan in photos fast and easily, plus you can now digitize all of your favorite 35mm film negatives with the included Film Adapter Unit. The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed* connection lets you scan images fast, with previews available in under 10 seconds. Scan multiple photos at once to save even more time on large projects. "Multi-Scan mode" automatically scans all the pictures placed on the platen glass in a single pass, preparing a separate image file for each. It will even adjust any slightly misaligned photos. Additionally, the LiDE 80 scanner automatically removes many of the scratches and dust particles typically found on older photos.
Convenience and great design. Canon scanner technology doesn't stop with performance. Convenience features include our exclusive Z-Lid™ expansion top, which lifts up to 1-inch high and stays flat for scanning thick books and magazines. Most other scanner covers can only lift at an angle, so the scans can be incomplete or illegible. For easier operation, just one cable is needed for both power and data connection - no additional AC adapter is required. Four easy-access buttons help automate the scanning process, save images to PDF, e-mail items or simply make a copy of that important report. You can even save your images directly to CDs as easily as scan, click and burn (Windows only). Bundled with the LiDE 80 scanner is a powerful suite of applications, featuring Adobe® Photoshop® Elements 2.0,** that are perfect for both professional and first-time users. And last, but certainly not least, with a lid that has a stylish, aluminum spin-carved finish, the LiDE 80 scanner will look great on any desktop.
