CanoScan 5600F

Film & Negative Scanner

Environmentally Conscious Products with the Next Generation in Mind


No Warm-Up3 / Low Energy Usage - Thanks to the high luminance white LED light source, the unit is ready to scan whenever you are, with zero warm-up time. Plus, the advanced LED light source quickly switches to standby mode after scanning, saving energy.

High Quality Imaging - The CCD scanning element produces high-quality 4800-dpi scans, and is the same CCD technology found in digital cameras.

Push-Button Simplicity / Low Energy Usage - Seven EZ Buttons let you do what you want with your original. So, scan it in color or B&W. Scan and save it, or copy it (sending a scanned image to your printer). Create a PDF of a multi-page original, customize your own settings, or for the ultimate in simplicity, just press the "Scan" button and let the CanoScan 5600F take care of everything. Whichever button you press, the process is simple.

Smart Scanning -The new Auto Scan feature makes scanning anything even easier than before. It actually detects the type of original you're scanning - whether it's a photo, business card, personal notebook or form-then automatically scans, processes and saves the image in the appropriate format. All at the press of just one button.

Scan Film and Slides - The built-in backlight and included film guide let you simultaneously scan up to six 35mm negative frames or up to four 35mm slides.

Faster data - The USB 2.0 interface enables the fastest possible image transfers and scanning speeds.

Energy Star qualified products and practices help you save money and reduce greenhouse emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
