Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today
announced the addition of two CanoScan LiDE Color Image Scanners – the
LiDE 220 and LiDE 120 scanners to the current lineup. These compact,
lightweight scanners offer consumers affordable scanning without
sacrificing image quality. The two models also feature an integrated
“Send” button that makes archiving, scanning, emailing, and saving
photos or important documents to the cloud effortless.
With a maximum optical resolution1 of 4800 x 4800 dpi for the
LiDE 220 and 2400 x 4800 dpi for the LiDE 120 scanner, users can be
confident that scans will be crisp and high quality. For tight
