Canon CanoScan LiDE 70 Scanner
Canon announces the launch of a new LIDE scanner; the CanoScan LiDE 70F. Replacing the CanoScan LiDE 60, the scanner offers increased resolution. The CanoScan LiDE 70 features 2400 x 4800dpi resolution to capture a high level of photographic detail, and enhances the LIDE line-up so that it offers a complete choice of resolutions. The new LiDE scanner expresses the compact style of the LIDE design sensibility, and features a stand for vertical scanning.
CanoScan LiDE scanners - Ultra-thin & Lightweight
LiDE scanners use LEDs, sensors and custom-made lenses in a unique way, placing sensor and light source very close together. The result is ultra-thin, compact and lightweight scanners that never sacrifice image definition. Using a single USB connection for both power and data, power consumption is low and installation easy. “With the launch of new designer CanoScan LIDE 70 scanner, Canon continues to lead the way with CIS scanners,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging. “The increased resolution of this new model puts quality scanning within everyone’s reach.”
