Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
This is high-performance scanning at its best. The high-luminance white LED lamps use less power and enable scanning immediately after you press the power button. Seven EZ Buttons automate the scanning process-so it's simple to scan, copy and create emails and multi-page PDFs. To make it even easier, the new Auto Scan Mode detects your type of original, then scans and saves it with the optimal settings. How fast? A letter-sized color scan takes only about 11 seconds. You're going to love the results, with outstanding color dpi resolution up to 4800 x 9600. For convenience, you can batch-scan up to six 35mm frames or four 35mm slides at once.
No Warm-Up / Low Energy Usage - Thanks to the high luminance white LED light source, the unit is ready to scan whenever you are, with zero warm-up time. Plus, the advanced LED light source quickly switches to standby mode after scanning, saving energy.
High Quality Imaging - The CCD scanning element produces high-quality 4800-dpi scans, and is the same CCD technology found in digital cameras.
Push-Button Simplicity / Low Energy Usage - Seven EZ Buttons let you do what you want with your original. So, scan it in color or B&W. Scan and save it, or copy it (sending a scanned image to your printer). Create a PDF of a multi-page original, customize your own settings, or for the ultimate in simplicity, just press the "Scan" button and let the CanoScan 5600F take care of everything. Whichever button you press, the process is simple.
Smart Scanning - The new Auto Scan feature makes scanning anything even easier than before. It actually detects the type of original you're scanning - whether it's a photo, business card, personal notebook or form-then automatically scans, processes and saves the image in the appropriate format. All at the press of just one button.
Scan Film and Slides - The built-in backlight and included film guide let you simultaneously scan up to six 35mm negative frames or up to four 35mm slides.
Faster data - The USB 2.0 interface enables the fastest possible image transfers and scanning speeds.
