When installed correctly, the device driver for the CanoScan FS4000US(SCSI) film scanner will accurately implement all features of the scanner. This driver is called upon by programs requiring the scanner’s features. The driver in turn invokes routines in the scanner to effectively carry out the requests of the calling programs. This film scanner can scan images from advanced photo system (APS) and 35 mm film originals. It can be used for creating more enhanced photograph enlargements, newsletters, brochures, web pages and business documents. The CanoScan FS4000US has an optical resolution of 4000 dpi (dot per inch) ideal for printing or for transferring images to the monitor. The scanner’ settings such as contrast, threshold values and brightness can be easily adjusted with the FilmGet FS. Managing colors can be performed with the included software ColorSync for MAC and ColorGear for Windows so that colors will be well-matched to the monitor and printer. In addition, the PhotoShop LE software is also included and can be used for editing and enhancing scanned images.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The CanoScan FS4000US film scanner’s colors are impressively clean since it was developed in accordance with accuracy standards higher than scanners in its class. It effectively employs 42 bit scanning, a newly developed circuitry and a high radiance cold cathode mercury fluorescent lamp that functions together. These components deliver smoother and clearer color gradients and enhanced shadow and highlight details. This film scanner also uses the Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement (FARE) technology for improving the image quality in scanning operations. This technology works better than a software-only solution since it utilizes both the software and the hardware for detecting and subsequently removing imperfections such as scratches and dust. The FARE technology performs the enhancements while an image is being scanned. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CanoScan FS4000US(SCSI) errors before installing any driver updates.
