Singapore, 17 September 2007 – Graphic designers, artists and advanced photographers now get superior scanning quality with the launch of the new CanoScan 8800F professional scanner. With zero warm-up time, the versatile 4600 dpi CanoScan 8800F triumphs over its predecessor with faster scan speeds, taking only seven seconds from power on for an A4 sized 300 dpi scan.
 
“The CanoScan 8800F is the solution for users looking for superb quality scanning and filing for film and documents”, says Andrew Koh, Director and General Manager, Consumer Imaging and Information Division at Canon Singapore. “Combining superior technologies in a compact and stylish design, the CanoScan 8800F will make archiving of photographs an enjoyable trip down memory lane.”
 
Quick, Powerful and Easy
The CanoScan 8800F delivers razor sharp resolution for high quality enlargements at 4800 x 9600 dpi resolution, fulfilling the needs of graphic designers and professional photographers. It also offers 48-bit colour depth for exceptional colour accuracy in reprints and proofs.
 
The seven configurable EZ buttons on the CanonScan 8800F save time by offering one-touch operation of common scanner tasks, such as copying, emailing and PDF file creation.
 
The addition of the new high-brightness white LED enables the CanoScan 8800F to scan from power on with no warm-up time needed. The white LED lamp also eliminates the need to keep the light lit after scanning, thereby saving energy.
