Canon scanners for Macs
Canon on Tuesday introduced two new high-speed business scanners that mark the company's first to be Mac-compatible. The two add to Canon's imageFORMULA DR series and include the DR-2510M and DR-2010M. Both have the TWAIN driver necessary for use with Macs, as well as Canon's CaptureOnTouch software that lets users quickly scan to e-mail, printers, shared folders or specific apps such as iPhoto.
The main difference between the new scanners is speed, as the DR-2510M can scan 25 single-sided color pages per minute or 20 double-sided color pages per minute. The DR-2010M doubles those speeds. The DR-2510M has ultrasonic double feed detection, while both have automatic page size detection and text orientation recognition. Either can scan at up to 600dpi resolution.
The imageFORMULA DR-2510M and DR-2010M scanners are now available and priced at $795 and $555 respectively.
