Package and Accessories

The CanoScan 8400F scanner comes in this cute-looking box painted Canon’s corporate colors:

The package contains:

  • CanoScan 8400F scanner
  • USB cable
  • Power adapter
  • Power cable
  • Holders for films and slides
  • Software
  • Documentation

The 8400F is compatible with all versions of Windows from Windows 98 and with Mac OS X version 10.1.3 and higher. You get a 5-CD pack of software to use under these OSes:

  • Installation CD
  • Adobe Photoshop Elements
  • SilverFast SE

The remaining two CDs are copies of the first two, but with localized versions of the software.

This is what you are going to find on the Installation CD:

  • ScanGear CS (25MB) – the scanner’s TWAIN driver
  • CanoScan Toolbox (15MB) – a utility that makes it easier to do your scanning tasks
  • ArcSoft PhotoStudio (35MB) – an image editor for beginners and amateurs
  • ScanSoft OmniPage (90MB) – OCR software
  • NewSoft Presto! PageManager (150MB) – a document management program
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader (25MB) – the reader of PDF files
  • Scanning Guide (10MB) – an electronic scanning guide

I won’t describe the software in detail just because it doesn’t differ much from the software included with the Canon CanoScan 5200F we tested earlier on our site. I am only going to talk about the special traits of the 8400F if there are any.
