Great scanner for anyone with loads of negatives, get one if you can!

  • Summary: I was on the prowl for a negative scanner for about 2 years, my requirements were simple, it needed handle 35mm negatives and slides but also APS (IX240) film cartridges. Unfortunately the only new scanner on the market that handles all 3 formats is from Nikon which is a very expensive option (over $6000). So, eBay came to the rescue and I got this puppy.

Hidden treasure

  • Summary: Usually when it comes done to film scanner, most of people will say Nikon. I never owned one, may be they are really so good so people makes a gold standard out of them - i do not know. But I saw scans made by them, I own Minolta Dual Scan IV, I tried PrimeFilm 7250Pro3 for few days and finally landed on FS4000US. PrimeFilm isn't a bad scanner - just different league, optically they still to work on it but they ICE3 works fine.

Good value, high quality scans, but slow.

  • Summary: Having recently been given an as-new high-end film camera, I decided to put my potentially expensive move into the digital SLR arena on hold for a couple more years and instead invest in a film scanner. I opted for a second-hand FS4000 due to the fact that the only brand new alternatives are the very expensive Nikon scanners, or the Plustek OpticFilm range which apparently don't offer a very good contrast ratio or true resolution.

Great quality and value 35mm film and slide scanner but can be slow

  • Summary: This is an extremely well built 35mm film and slide scanner with a steel chassis and case.It has a genuine 4000dpi x 4000dpi 16bit scan unlike some others quoting figures around 7600dpi but only delivering 2500dpi or less.Canon has installed its enhancement and retouching software called FARE and it seems to work just as well as'Digital Ice"which is commonly used.

  • Excerpt: I bought this item a few years ago and was very impressed, easy to set up and use. Just plug it in load the software and off you go. The TWAIN adapter is easy to use, just click on preview, and then on the photos you want to have scan, you get the choice of rotating them, and playing about with the colours if you want to, and a choice of what sizes you want them scanned with.
  • Pros: Very easy to use
  • Cons: A bit slow

A good sturdy reliable work-horse with good quality output

  • Excerpt: When I bought this scanner a few years ago it was quite expensive at more than £700 although at the time scanners of this resolution were in general even more expensive. It is quite an old design and most likely now to be found only on the second-hand market, but due to it's sturdy construction could make a sensible second-hand purchase when compared to the relatively cheap and cheerful scanners available now.
  • Pros: Reliability

Good Mid Priced Scanner

  • Excerpt: I have thousands of photographs mounted on slides which I needed to scan in to digital form. I am not part of a professional studio so found this to be a good price at the time. £700 but you can get it for £400 now. It is great for its powerful features like reducing alot of the scratches on these slides. It can be quite tedious as it will only do batches of 4 slides or 6 negatives at a time although unless you are time restricted it is not such a big problem.
  • Pros: Scans slides 35mm and APS
  • Cons: Slightly tricky on first instal

Canon CanoScan FS4000 - Ein Geheimtip !

finta123, eBay.de
3 March 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe einen Nachfolger für meinen alten Canon-Scanner FS 2710 gesucht, der nicht unter Windows 7 zu betreiben ist, der eine sehr gute Scan-Qualität liefert und bezahlbar ist. Das habe ich mit dem FS4000 gefunden. Allerdings braucht man eine andere Software. Ich nutze "Vuescan". Einmal kurz installiert und über USB angeschlossen. Alles funktioniert, wie gewünscht. Die Qualität ist toll, aber der Scanner ist langsam.

Ein Scanner für Leute mit hohem Anspruch

Methana, Ciao

  • Summary: Ich habe den Canon FS 4000 USB 2001 bei technikdirekt.de gekauft. Im Set sind alle wichtigen Zubehörteile und sogar ein APS-Filmadapter enthalten. Die Softwareaustattung ist okay für Amateure, aber für Profiscans sollte mehr geliefert werden. Photoshop LE ist alleine nicht genug. Was fehlt ist eine gute Kalibrierungssoftware. Die Canon-Software ist im besten Fall ausreichend. Problematisch sind Dia-Scans. Nicht, weil die Auflösung zu schlecht wäre - die ist klasse.
  • Pros: hohe Auflösung, alles nötige im Kauf enthalten, sehr gute Haltbarkeit
  • Cons: sehr langsame Geschwindigkeit .  Farbkalibrierung mangelhaft
