Editorial Review

A film scanner that allows you to easily preserve negatives, the Canon LiDE 80 is a remarkably slim unit that's ready to meet big expectations. Don't let the 1.5-inch height fool you–Canon's Z-lid design allows it to perfectly accommodate originals up to one inch thick.

48-bit color and a 16-bit grayscale provide rich tones and clear contrasts; the 2,400 x 4,800 non-interpolated resolution handles the rest with clean, crisp detail. USB 2.0 interface means there's a single cord that supplies both power and connection, as well as a speedy transfer of data.

Bundled with the scanner is an impressive array of software for both Windows and Macintosh OS systems that will allow you to convert, smooth, and organize your images in a variety of ways. Perfect for home use, the Canon LiDE 80 is backed by a one-year warranty with Instant Exchange service.
