Canon CanoScan 9950F


The Canon CanoScan 9950F ($399.99 direct) flatbed scanner encroaches on territory usually reserved for film scanners. With a claimed 4,800 pixel-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution and 9,600-ppi mechanical resolution, plus the ability to scan film at...

Slide-scanning features are far ahead of most flatbed scanners. Color-restore feature. Good OCR accuracy. Scans directly to PDF format

No ADF. Dust and scratch removal feature doesn't do much

The Canon CanoScan 9950F is an all-purpose scanner with good OCR accuracy, one-button scanning to PDF format, and a bundled document-management program. But the emphasis is on film, with scans of reasonably good quality and a design that lets you...

Image and film flatbed scanner

The CanoScan 9950F walks a fine line in the advanced consumer/professional market and, while there are many features in this new model, some of them require an excellent eye and a little time in Photoshop (or the software included) for best results....

CanoScan 9950F


The CanoScan 9950F offers high optical resolutions, improved scan quality, and more intuitive software controls.

Excellent color and detail capture from both transparency and reflective media.

None significant

The CanoScan 9950F bumps the optical resolution up from 3,200 dpi to 4,800 dpi. It supports both FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 connections and ships with a stack of film holders to hold just about any common format

Amazing scanner


Ordered this scanner to compliment my Canon printer, and love both! I couldn't get my old HP scanner to cooperate with WinXP on my new computer. (Ordered new driver and it still wouldn't work). This one is SO much more advanced, worked right out of the...

Product Specifications

The powerful CanoScan 9950F Color Image Scanner delivers the ultimate in scanning performance and quality. It handles a wide range of originals, from photos and documents to transparencies and negatives up to large-format 4 x 5 inch. You'll simply be amazed at the quality of your scans. The 9950F scanner achieves a spectacular 4800 x 9600 dpi color resolution (max.) and 48-bit color depth for over 281 trillion possible colors. An available USB 2.0 Hi-Speed or FireWire connection ensures the highest possible transfer rates, which is especially important on large files, and previews are available in about 3.6 seconds. For added convenience, four easy buttons - Copy, Scan, PDF and E-mail - automate the scanning process, so your projects can go much faster. Just position your original, select the use for the image, and in seconds it's ready to go. The Hyper CCD IV is Canon's first 4800 dpi CCD sensor for flatbed scanners. In combination with a Super Toric (ST) Lens and the scanner's dual light system, the Hyper CCD IV is able to produce visibly clearer results with finer details. The ST lens also has a large aperture to pick up more light than conventional lenses, a factor which leads to faster and brighter scans. Are some of your most precious images on old slides and negatives worn and collecting dust? Canon has a simple solution: FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement) Level 3. Its built-in retouching technology handles the most common problems found with old negatives and slides. It can remove much of the dust and scratches that may appear on your originals. It can even revive images that have faded over time. Plus, Backlight Correction Technology works to adjust image exposure, and Grain Correction will help smooth out grainy images. The included film adapters let you scan transparencies and negatives, from 35mm up to 4 x 5 in. formats. You can even batch-scan up to thirty 35mm negative frames or 12 mounted slides.
