Canon 8800F and LiDE 90

Rounding out Canon's releases on Monday are two CanoScan units. The 8800F (pictured) is geared towards preserving photos and slides at up to 4800x9600 DPI with a new white LED which is ready to scan instantly and completes image recording three times faster than could be possible with a traditional fluorescent lamp. When processing photos, the 8800F can also automatically compensate for fading, scratches, and other artifacts in older photos. The new photo scanner is 17 percent smaller than its predecessors and should be available soon for $200.

Home users interested primarily in scanning modern-day photos and other images will have the choice of the LiDE 90. The device is one of the thinnest scanners in the world, according to Canon; it also includes a unique stand to reduce the horizontal footprint. It too comes with automatic image correction at its lower 4800x2400 DPI resolution and should be available for $80.
