The CanoScan 4200F is a scanner that offers its users a combination of style, high scanning speeds as well as outstanding quality of scanned documents. The scanner has optical resolution of 3,200 x 6,400 dpi at maximum and 9,600 dpi when interpolated. This resolution ensures that the scanner captures all details in the documents being scanned to give one images that are sharp and beautifully crisp. Colored documents are also scanned using this device since the scanner is loaded with 48-bit color and 16-bit grayscale so that tones and shades are reproduced giving the users the desired quality. In addition, the printer has a large film adapter unit that adds power to the performance of the device so that it can support about 4 frames of transparencies that are about 35mm thick in one operation. The scanner incorporates a 2.0 USB interface that enables one to preview the images they are scanning in about 26 seconds.

The Quality Automatic Retouching and Enhancement (QARE) technology has been incorporated into this scanner in order to detect the presence of scratch marks and eliminates dust on the original prints, which saves time that would have spent on manually trying to retouch and improve the quality of the scans. This technology may also restore the saturation of colors of photos that have faded as well as reduce grain effect from photos that were taken from high-speed film. The scanner has four EZ buttons, which allow the users to have an easy time operating it. They select the operation such as filing, e-mailing or scanning that they would like to carry out on the one-touch buttons. Moreover, the scanner has an advanced Z-lid that allows the device users to scan documents that are very thick such as books and magazines. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CanoScan 4200F errors before installing any driver updates.
