Our take on the Canon CanoScan 9000F

by Dave Bar

Quickly and easily turn your collections of treasured photographs, important documents, textbooks, or even your child's artwork into convenient digital files with the CanoScan 9000F color image scanner. Its film holders let you scan as many as twelve 35mm negatives or four mounted slides at a time. Plus, it handles 120 roll film from professional medium-format cameras. The 9000F's ultra-high resolution and 48-bit color depth deliver scans with pro-quality clarity and detail.

Breathe new life into your photo collection
Are some of your most precious photos worn or scratched? Not a problem for this Canon. The 9000F's automatic film retouching and enhancement can remove most dust and scratch marks from your original photos, restoring them to their former appearance with the touch of a button. This special technology can also help revive faded colors on old prints.

Fast, user-friendly operation
You get exceptional convenience as well. High-luminance white LED lamps require no warm-up time, so the 9000F is always ready to scan immediately. The buttons on the scanner's hinged lid allow easy, one-touch control of the entire scanning process. Choose the Auto Scan mode, and the 9000F automatically recognizes the type of film, photo, or document you're scanning and saves it in the appropriate format. The e-mail and PDF buttons let you automatically pass a scanned image along as a ready-to-e-mail file, or store it as a PDF.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.



Overview: The Canon CanoScan 9000F flatbed scanner allows you to produce spectacular 9600 x 9600 dpi scans with vibrant 48-bit color depth, yielding over 281 trillion possible colors. Not only can you scan photos and documents, you can scan up to 12 frames of 35mm film or 4 mounted slides simultaneously, using the supplied film guide.

Optical Resolution: The CanoScan 9000F can produce scans at a resolution of up to 9600 x 9600 dpi for transparencies and 4800 x 4800 dpi for reflectives.

White LED Light Source: Instead of a fluorescent lamp light source, the CanoScan 9000F uses high luminance white LEDs, which provide a Zero Warm-up Time, meaning it's ready to scan immediately. Since the white LED lamp doesn't need to stay on after scanning, the scanner meets the Energy Star guidelines for conserving energy.

USB 2.0 Hi Speed: The USB 2.0 Hi Speed interface enables the fastest possible image transfers and scanning speeds.

Controls: There are 7 buttons on the top panel of the scanner, making it easy to scan, copy, and create e-mails and multi-page PDFs:

  • Auto Scan: In one step, the photo or document is scanned, and the type of original is automatically recognized. The original is automatically cropped to proper size and saved in the appropriate file format.
  • PDF Buttons:
    • Color: scans color images in A4 or Letter size at 300 dpi, by default
    • Black & White: scans black & white images in A4 or Letter size at 300 dpi, by default
    • Custom: scans images in user-specified settings
    • Finish: ends the operation and saves the scanned image in a PDF file
  • Copy Button: prints/copies the scanned image with a printer
  • E-mail Button: attaches the scanned image to a new e-mail message

Scanning Film: The CanoScan 9000F can scan 35mm film (filmstrip or slides, positives or negatives) and 120 format film, using the three provided film guides. The guides allow you to load up to 12 frames of 35mm film strips, up to 4 mounted 35mm slides, or a 120 format film strip with up to three frames. If the film strips are curled, the supplied Film Retainer Sheet helps prevent the film strips from sticking to the platen glass and creating Newton Rings.

Files: The images can be saved as BMP, PICT, JPEG, Exif, TIFF, or PDF files.

FARE Level 3: The built-in FARE retouching technology automatically removes much of the dust and scratches on original prints, improving image quality.

Auto Document Fix: Auto Document Fix features advanced image analysis and area-by-area data correction to deliver beautiful results automatically.

Gutter Shadow Correction: The built-in correction removes the unsightly shadow typically seen when scanning pages from a book. The "gutter" is eliminated, therefore producing a clean scan of the page.

OS Compatibility: The CanoScan 9000F is compatible with the following Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows XP/2000
  • Mac OS X v.10.4.11 to 10.6*
    • * If you have Mac OS X v.10.5 or lower, you should upgrade to Mac OS X v.10.6 before installing the software bundled with the scanner.

  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 8
  • ArcSoft PhotoStudio
  • MP Navigator EX

Great product

Written By John H, Hattiesburg, MS on Friday, February 25, 2011
Having taken photographs for the past 38 years, I have found thousands of slides
stored away. Now with this product I can download and retouch them in
photoshop. Crutchfield had the best offering for this product and follow-up
support that other sites didn't have.
I am totally impressed with the ease of use and the quality of the scans
thanks Crutchfield
