About Canon

Ultimate Scanning Performance. Scan like the pros, right at home.

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-Speed1 or FireWire2 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.

Re-touch that old film automatically. 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.

Four film adapters. 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.

Scanner doing its job: happy users


This was purchased as a gift, and the recipients are now happily using it with a Mac. One of the goals was to scan and color-correct medium format ektachrome from the 1950s: the ability to save particular enhancement combinations is very handy in dealing with images that have mostly lost their blues and greens. Low speed might be a problem for other users, but scanning time is minor compared to manipulation time for this application.


Has lived up to its advertising
