Canon has announced a new addition to its range of flatbed A4 scanners, the CanoScan 5200F. The scanner is an update to its 5000F scanner, and has the same 2,400-x-4,800 dpi resolution and 48-bit colour depth.

A new Film Adaptor Unit will scan 6-x-35mm negatives or 4-x-35mm mounted slides, doubling the number held by the 5000F FAU. The 5200F also includes FARE level 2 technology for detecting and removing dust and scratches from spoiled film.

The CanoScan 5200F will be available from 1 June with pricing similar to the 5000F at around £110 plus VAT.
