Canon also introduced new CanoScan 1230UF and CanoScan 2400UF color flatbed scanners with large format built-in film adapters, which offer 48-bit color scanning, improved resolutions and scanning speeds. The USB-enabled scanners offer the ability for users to scan 35mm, medium format and 4x5-inch slides, transparencies and negatives and use new Data Compression Transfer technology, which it says transfers images 30 percent faster than previous CanoScan scanner models. The 1230UF offers 1200x2400 dpi while the 2400UF offers 2400x4800 dpi up to 9600x9600 dpi for ultra-high-resolution color scans. Both ship in April for $300 and $500 respectively.
