Advanced Photoshop Review’s Editor Adam Smith was at the show and here he shares its most impressive features.

New, Advanced Software

The CanoScan 9000F Mark II features new My Image Garden software. This includes cool new functionality such as photo organising and face recognition.

File sharing is now made almost instant, with users now able to transfer files to Evernote or Dropbox cloud services with a touch of a button.

Enhanced Power Efficiency

The 9000F Mark II uses white LED light, promising impressive zero warm-up times for reflective and film scanning. This makes this forward thinking scanner more energy efficient., reducing power consumption compared to traditional fluorescent lamps.

Superior Scan Quality

The 9000F Mark II offers impressive scan quality and easily captures exceptional detail from photos and film.

This is due to an included CCD sensor that handles a maximum optical scanning resolution of 9600 x 9600 dpi for film;  4800 x 4800 dpi for flatbed scanning.

Versatile Film Handling

The CanoScan 9000F Mark II is capable of scanning up to twelve 35mm film strips or 4 mounted slides in a single operation (either positive or negative).

Cool Film Automatic Retouching Enhancement (FARE) means you can make the most of scans, even those suffering from dust, scratches, fading or requiring backlight correction.

Quick and Easy to Use

The new CanoScan 9000F Mark II comes with a range of features that improve ease of use. The seven EZ buttons located on the front of the scanner offer one touch scanning and can be configured to individual user requirements. In addition, Auto Scan Mode automatically recognises the type of document that is being scanned and saves the scan as a photo or document using the optimum settings, with just a single click.
