Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F Scanner

Canon LiDE 600F scanner


With the digital age in full swing, now is the time to digitally archive those shoeboxes full of old photos and personal files that are bursting at the seams. The scanning solution fit most budgets and lifestyles. The new Canon LiDE 600F Color Image...

Canon CanoScan LIDE 600F scanner


Canon's latest Contact Image Sensor LiDE scanner is the 600F, which updates the preceding model, the 500F. It brings to the LiDE range 48-bit colour and 4800 x 9600ppi scanning for the first time and so offers a tempting set of features for those in...

Design, price, scan quality, FARE, software

Bulky and awkward to use FAU attachment, mounted 35mm slides not supported by FAU

Canon’s CanoScan LiDE 600F provides what is essentially a big scanner set of features in a small scanner (except when the FAU is attached!) and at a remarkably small price too.

Canon LiDE 600F review


The Canon LiDE 600F film and photo scanner benefits from an amazingly low profile and sports a detachable film scan module.

Design, ease of use, USB-powered, film scans

Film scan unit needs careful handling

Overall, this is a superb all-rounder at a give-away price.

Canon - CanoScan LiDE 600F


The latest CanoScan LiDE (LED Indirect Exposure) scanner is an upgrade of the 500F and is the first CIS (Contact Image Sensor) scanner to feature 4,800 x 9,600dpi optical resolution with 48-bit colour depth. This means ...

A slim, lightweight and stylish scanner with much improved image reproduction quality, software and utilities. It would be a must-have were it not for the clunky Film Adapter Unit that doesn't allow for 35mm slide scanning.

Product Specifications

Scan family snapshots, school projects, important documents-even your child's spelling award. Whatever the task, this versatile scanner makes it simple. Large function buttons automate the process, so it's easy to scan originals and e-mail them or create PDFs. The Advanced Double-Hinge-Lid opens 180 degrees allowing clear, complete scans of your thickest originals such as notebooks. Plus, the provided stand holds the scanner vertically, saving you desktop space. Produce scans with spectacular resolution of up to 4800 x 9600 color dpi. To save time, simultaneously scan up to 6 frames of 35mm film (negatives or positives). The USB 2.0 interface enables the fastest possible image transfers and scanning speeds. The CanoScan LiDE 600F allows great scans from any angle: position it facing you, turn it 90 degrees, or place it on its side (with included stand) to save space. Produce clean copies / scans even of thick items that do not lie flat on the platen. The included software greatly enhances resolution, up to an amazing 19200 color dpi. Built-in retouching technology removes much of the dust and scratches on original prints, and revives faded images. One convenient cable to your computer provides both a USB connection and power. Large function buttons automate the scanning process - select the use for the image, and it's ready in seconds.
