Professional quality
With a 4800 x 9600 dpi CCD sensor capturing incredible detail, the CanoScan 8600F delivers superb, crisp images suitable for enlargement and high-resolution printing. The 48-bit colour depth ensures your scans have exceptionally accurate colour reproduction.

Film scanning
The CanoScan 8600F is equipped with a versatile built-in film adapter unit (FAU), allowing you to scan 12 x 35mm negatives in a single operation. It can also take up to 4 mounted slides and 120 format film.

Automatic retouching
Using infrared scanning detection, FARE Level 3 technology automatically restores scratched, damaged or faded film to its former glory, saving hours of manual retouching. It also reduces graininess resulting from high speed film, and includes backlight compensation. QARE Level 3 performs the same functions for photo prints.

Ultra-fast scans
The CanoScan 8600F’s super fast scan engine optimises your productivity, providing previews in just 4 seconds. Even when scanning at maximum resolution, workflow remains efficient as the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection ensures speedy data transfer.

Powerful software
The CanoScan 8600F is bundled with a suite of powerful software tools that deliver outstanding functionality, performance and productivity. LaserSoft’s SilverFast SE gives you professional level control over the scan process, reducing the requirement for post scan image processing. Also included are the award winning Adobe PhotoShop Elements, for powerful image processing, and ScanSoft Ominpage SE for Optical Character Recognition. Canon’s ScanGear and CanoScan Toolbox have been upgraded to include better than ever image quality and functionality.

EZ buttons
Offering flexibility and saving you time, seven scan buttons provide one-touch operation of common scan tasks. Customise these to perform the functions you use most: copying, scanning, PDF file creation, or sending to your e-mail program. Four of the buttons are dedicated to scanning straight to PDF, including scanning in colour or mono.

Scan Multi-photos
The CanoScan 8600F further saves time with Canon's fast Multi-Photo mode, which allows you to scan up to 10 separate images in a single pass, then work on each one separately. Multi-Photo automatically identifies, crops and straightens multiple images, even recognizing the type of original you use (film or photo).

Maximum scan size*
216 x 297 mm
Optical scanning resolution*
How many pixels a scanner can see. Most commonly, this is measured in dots per inch (dpi).For example, a typical flatbed scanner will use a scanning head with 300 sensors per inch, so it can sample 300 dots per inch (dpi) in one direction. To scan in the other direction, it will move the scanning head along the page, stopping 300 times per inch, so it can scan 300 dpi in the other direction as well. This scanner would have an optical resolution of 300 x 300 dpi. Some manufacturers stop the scanning head more frequently as it moves down the page, so their machines have resolutions of 300 x 600 dpi or 300x1200 dpi.
4800 x 9600 DPI
Colour scanning*
Indicates whether this product scans in colour.
Input colour depth
Colour depth of the input into the product. The colour depth is either the number of bits used to indicate the color of a single pixel, in a bitmapped image or video frame buffer, or the number of bits used for each color component of a single pixel. High-end laptops have 24-bit colour depth.
48 bit
Film scanning*
Device made for scanning photographic film directly into a computer without the use of any intermediate printmaking. It provides several benefits over using a flatbed scanner to scan in a print of any size: the photographer has direct control over cropping and aspect ratio from the original, unmolested image on film; and many film scanners have special software or hardware that removes scratches and film grain and improves color reproduction from film.
Scanner type*
A scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Common examples found in offices are variations of the desktop (or flatbed) scanner where the document is placed on a glass window for scanning. There are different types of scanners e.g. flatbed, pen, sheet-feed.
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Ports & interfaces
