CanoScan FS4000US

Support Scanners - CanoScan Series


Detail is everything; and the FS4000US ensures each image looks its best. With 4000 dpi optical resolution, you won't find any other scanner in this class that exceeds it. More resolution means more details show, important whether you're transferring images to your monitor or printing them as high-quality photo enlargements.
The FS4000US is at the head of its class-in color reproduction, too. This scanner's color is unusually clean because it's designed and built to accuracy standards higher than other conventional scanners. A high-brilliance cold cathode mercury fluorescent lamp, newly designed circuitry and 42 bit scanning works together to give you cleaner, smoother color gradients and improved highlight and shadow details. Precious details are free of defects like smearing and noise.
Only Canon could develop its own technology, FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement), to improve image quality during scanning. It's better than software only solutions because it uses both hardware and software to detect and remove imperfections like dust and scratches- and it does this at the time of the scanning. FARE saves you hours of work retouching.* *FARE does not recognize Black and White or Kodachrome™ film.
You have the freedom to control the scanner as much as you need. Adjust brightness, threshold values and contrast to your liking with FilmGet FS. Carefully manage your colors with ColorGear in Windows and ColorSync in Mac for a better match between your printer and monitor. And with PhotoShop LE, edit the images even further.
Your choice. The new optical system in the FS4000 detects and focuses on uneven film distances automatically to provide the sharpest scan possible. For those times when an unusually damaged original requires more flexibility, you can adjust the focus manually using the FilmGet FS software included.
No matter what type of film format gets loaded, the FS4000 voraciously feeds and scans with speed and quality. Consecutively scanning up to six frames of 35 mm filmstrip, 40 frames of an APS cartridge or four mounted 35 mm (or APS) slides, this scanner makes short work of even big film archives. While scanning each batch, you can even preview shots from the Preview window displays.
You'll never have to worry about losing more and more time while you repeatedly reset the scanner to accept mixed film types. When you batch load into the scanner, the FS4000 recognizes 35 mm filmstrip or mounted slide, negative or positive APS film. Each image in your batch scan previews a thumbnail on-screen, too.
The FS4000 has just two easy interfaces -- one for direct connection (USB), the other for high-speed data transfer (SCSI-2), Mac or Windows, even Plug and Play. The Canoscan Setup Application makes it easy to install all the software provided. What could be simpler?
