Canon has announced the launch of three new film and flatbed scanners -- the entry level CanoScan 4200F, the mid range CanoScan 8400f and the new flagship in the CanoScan range, the 9950f -- all to be available from November.

Costing £289 plus VAT, the 9950f offers a resolution of 4,800-x-9,600dpi at a colour depth of 48bits. Canon claims that it is the first flat-bed scanner with a film adapter unit (FAU) that will take 30 negatives in 35mm film strips. The FAU also takes up to 12 mounted 35mm slides and medium format film.
