Beautiful Scans. Great Value. Fast. High style. Performance to match. The sleek CanoScan LiDE 50 Color Image Scanner is great to look at. Which is fortunate, because with its amazing performance and versatility this scanner will earn a prominent place on your desktop. The LiDE 50 scanner is loaded with everything you need for fast, high-quality scans and maximum convenience. The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection enables you to scan large images up to 2.5 times faster than USB 1.1*. Color reproduction is outstanding with up to 1200 x 2400 dpi and up to 48-bit color processing for over 281 million possible colors. Four external buttons - copy, scan, e-mail and file enable true single touch convenience for each function - and allow easy sharing of images with any audience. For multiple images, "Multi-Scan" mode automatically scans all the photos in one pass. The LiDE 50 scanner even includes a powerful suite of applications featuring Adobe® Photoshop® Elements 2.0**.
Elegant design. The LiDE 50 scanner may be slim, but it can tackle the big jobs. The exclusive Z-Lid™ expansion top lifts up to 1" high and stays flat for scanning books and magazines. Other scanner covers lift only at an angle - not lying flat for thick items, resulting in poor scans. Unique to the CanoScan LiDE scanner series is the single cable connection for both power and data transfer - no bulky AC adapter required. A handy scanner stand allows "on-edge" convenient use or storage.
