Product Overview

Canon CanoScan LiDE 300 in More Detail

An affordably priced, compact and sleekly designed flatbed scanner, CanoScan the LiDE 300 combines simplicity with quality. This A4-sized scanner allows for quick and easy cropping and resizing of scanned images for a perfect picture without fuss. With the Canon PRINT app, this scanner can be synchronised with phones and tablets to enable easy scanning and instant access to the cloud storage service of the user's choice.

Easy to use

The LiDE 300 makes ease of use a priority with a 300 dpi scan speed of approximately 10 seconds, and a control panel consisting of four EZ operation buttons. The autoscan feature combined with the auto document fix and auto photo fix features makes scanning and tweaking large quantities of things straight-forward and quick. This scanner also utilises Canon's revolutionary Z-lid to make scanning bulky or oddly shaped items less of a hassle. The Z-shaped, spring-loaded hinge compensates for thick books or magazines automatically, resulting in higher quality images due to a more evenly lit scan.

High definition

With an optical resolution of 2,400 x 4,800 dpi and a selectable resolution range of 25-19200 dpi, the CanoScan LiDE 300 easily competes with larger, more power-consuming scanners in terms of image quality. It provides crisp, clear scanning that is perfect for capturing finely printed text, or minute physical details. The 48-bit input/output will ensure that colour images come out bright and vivid.

Lightweight with minimal clutter

This A4 scanner can be at home in any setup. Its energy-efficient design means it will draw power through the USB cord that connects it to the computer, so there's no plug or power brick to clutter up a work space. The sleek, compact size means it will fit unobtrusively on or under a desk without limiting space.
