LiDE scanner with CIS sensor
A LiDE scanner with CIS sensor provides a winning combination of incredibly high resolution scans and low energy consumption. Powered by a single USB cable, connected to a computer, the LiDE 700F has no need for an additional power cable, making it truly portable and space saving.

Innovative 3-way design
The LiDE 700F’s ingenious 3-way design, with flip-out stand, allows it to be used in portrait, landscape or vertical positions – this means that it fits into almost any workspace.

9600x9600dpi film scanning
Incredibly high resolution 9600x9600dpi scans from 35mm film are possible thanks to a dedicated clip-on film scanning unit (supplied). This means massive enlargements and intricately detailed prints can be achieved from your 35mm film negatives/positives.

4800x4800dpi reflective scanning
The flatbed scanner can be used in any position, providing you with accurate, clear and crisp images and document scans up to 4800x4800dpi optical resolution.

48bit input
Achieve life-like colour reproduction with 48bit input, which can replicate billions of separate colours – enhancing your colour scans with amazingly accurate depth and tone.

Auto Scan Mode
With one click, Auto Scan Mode automatically recognises the type and format of your original, then scans and saves using suitable settings. One touch operation saves you time by eliminating the need for lengthy settings configuration.

Configurable EZ buttons
The four configurable EZ buttons enable fast, convenient operation for PDF, Copy, Scan, and Email functions. You can choose the settings and assign them to each button – once these configurations are saved your scanner will work exactly as you need it to.

QARE dust and scratch removal
QARE stands for Quick Automatic Retouching and Enhancement technology and does just that. Reflective documents and old photographs can now be easily enhanced and printed using a photo quality printer. The LiDE 700F automatically detects and removes dust from your scans for pristine results that save you time by removing the hassle of post-scan retouching. Supported by ScanGear, QARE achieves retouching effects without an increase in cost.

Software included
Canon’s MP Navigator EX software manages scanned files: convert documents to searchable PDFs, protect with passwords and use over 15 language OCR.
