These are drivers for a CanoScan 8600F scanner. They have to be installed for the scanner to work perfectly. The device is affordable with a sleek design and it's easy to use. Some of its exclusive features include digitalizing slides, photos, negatives and documents. It has a high scanning resolution of 4800 x 9600 dpi which assures one of sharp and clear images. Another great feature of this scanner is the option where an old document is re-coloured to remove scratches and dust on original documents and reviving images that are faded. There is also an additional feature of Film Adapter Unit (FAU) that is in-built; this makes it possible to scan negatives and slides that are mounted. The scanner has several control buttons which assign different commands including scanning a document to PDF design, scanning photos into slides and the normal scanning of a document into a printer.

The scanner is packaged with a document arranging software but one can change the supplied software with their intended software. The scanner is also compatible with both PCs and Macs making it fit for both home and office use. There is a transparent unit under the lid of the scanner; this unit makes it possible for the scanner to scan slides and film which is able to separate images in case one is scanning multiple images. This enables the user have control of what images they may need scanned. This scanner uses charge coupled device (CCD) sensors that give the best quality scanned documents. This makes the CanoScan 8600F an ultimate choice unlike other scanners that use contact image sensors (CIS) which has a lower quality output. The device has an automatic colour controlling feature that brings out every colour in the best resolution possible. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CanoScan 8000F errors before installing any driver updates.
