Marketing text Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F

The official marketing text of Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F as supplied by the manufacturer
The first word in stylish scanning, the LiDE 500F is a mere 35mm thick. Setting radical new standards in function and design, this 2400x4800 dpi scanner matches great looks with cutting edge performance.

The slender achiever
The LiDE 500F combines breath-takingly slender design, outstanding functionality and an ultra-stylish finish. Drawing all the power it needs from a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection, the scanner's slim size and integrated stand allow you to operate your scanner in a variety of different ways - even upright.

Flexible performer
When the scanner is upright, a double hinge lid allows 'drop-in' scanning. With the stand folded away, open the lid completely out to scan oversize objects such as maps or posters. The lid also opens parallel to accept bulky items such as books.

High resolution
A 2400 x 4800 dpi CIS sensor combines with 48 bit colour depth to deliver high resolution scans, accurately reproducing every fine detail and subtle shade.

The LiDE 500F features a super-compact Film Adapter Unit (FAU) for scanning strips of 35mm film, with astonishing results.

Automatic retouching
Canon's FARE Level 3 is the ultimate film correction system. Infra-red light detects the precise location of dust and scratches, later corrected with advanced software to save hours of manual retouching. Faded colour, excessive graininess and poor exposure can also be corrected with FARE technology. QARE Level 3 offers similar functionality and levels of correction for photo prints.

Speedy scans
With a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface, zero warm up time and 6 second preview, the super fast LiDE 500F saves precious minutes with every job. Multi-Photo Mode creates individual cropped and straightened files from a single scan pass of up to 10 separate images.

Scan to PDF
A 'Scan to PDF' function scans documents straight to PDF format. A floating palette of PDF pages is created, which can be arranged or ordered at will. Text is automatically embedded in PDF files at time of scanning, allowing editing and searching.

Scan A3 pages by 'stitching' two scans together with the Image Stitch function. For exceptionally faithful colour reproduction, 'Easy Colour Matching Print' passes full colour information to supported Canon inkjet printers.

Software supplied includes ArcSoft PhotoStudio image editing and OmniPage SE OCR. To help keep you organised, CanoScan Toolbox sits always-at-the-ready on your desktop, allowing you to customise the four EZ-buttons for common functions, such as copying, scanning direct to e-mail and straight to PDF.

Maximum scan size*
210 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.
2400 x 4800 DPI

Scanner type*
A scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image.
