Highest Resolution In Its
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
High Quality Colour Reproduction
FS4000US is at the head of its class-in colour reproduction, too.
This scanner's colour 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 colour gradients and improved highlight and shadow
details. Precious details are free of defects like smearing and
And Flaws Automatically
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.
Software Package Included
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 colours with ColourGear 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
Speedy Continuous Batch Scanning
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.
Automatic Film-Type Detection
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.
Simple And Convenient
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?
