Canon CanoScan FS-4000US


Until recently, 4,000-dot-per-inch (dpi) film scanners were expensive and complicated. The new Canon CanoScan FS-4000US ($995 list)—announced soon after Nikon's similar offering (First Looks, May 8)—brings another affordable, easy-to-use scanner to the...

If you want a 4000dpi scanner with dust removal, this one is a bargain. If you want the ability to scan APS film it's even more of a bargain as it comes complete with an adapter for APS film! The scan quality is very high and the price is reasonable.

Canon CanoScan FS 4000 US film scanner Review


The CanoScan shows very good performance levels in most areas. It would have been nice to see shorter scanning times,but the scanner is aggressively priced for the resolution, so it's fair to expect some drawbacks.

Canon CanoScan FS2710


I use this scanner mainly to scan from colour & B&W neg at the max dpi. The results are then used on the web, publishing and printing onto conventional photographic paper using an online lab. Kodachrome is very difficult to scan. Blacks tend to be...


Scanning contasty slides (Kodachrome) is very tricky.

Canon CanoScan FS2710


This is a fairly good scanner. Easy to install with Windows 98/ME, quite difficult with Windows 2000 PRO. After some trials, I managed to have it working also after my upgrade to Win2000 pro. Images are sharp, noise is low, focus is very weel...

36 bits with Photoshop Easy of use Good details

Bad colors with negatives Slow preview Compressed dynamic range Too much heat inside tends to ruin films

Product Specifications

The CanoScan 2710 is the affordable high performance film scanner for professionals and photo-enthusiasts that require exceptional quality scans of 35mm or Advanced Photo System films. It offers like the award winning CanoScan 2700F an optical resolution of 2720 dpi, but the new film scanner boasts a powerful 36 bit output resulting in a 68-billion-color recognition and a 3.2D optical density range. The Canon film scanner is equipped with the specially designed CANALY (Color Adjustment for Negative Automatically) to improve the scanning results from color negative films where the film base color needs to be compensated for. This scanner comes standard with the CanoCraft FS 3.6 driver that is designed to work with Windows 95/98 and Windows NT4.0 operating systems. It also enables transfers of 36bit color images to Adobe Photoshop 4.0 LE. Again Canon offers an 'out of the box solution' by adding all necessary cables, SCSI II card, a complete software package, the Advanced Photo System Adapter and 35 mm film holder to the actual film scanner. The CanoScan 2710 features the SCSI II card enabling images to be scanned within 13 seconds flat. And equipped with the film holder and adapter these images can origin from a variety of film formats.
