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 workplaces such as a home or remote office, the LiDE 220 scanner utilizes upright scanning allowing the user to scan while the unit is in a vertical position. Additionally, since both color image scanners utilize USB-power, they have been qualified as meeting the Energy Star® energy efficiency criteria.*
“The ability to scan important photos and documents for archival and business purposes remains a top priority for our consumers,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the introduction of these two CanoScan LiDE scanner models, Canon shows its commitment to meeting consumers’ needs for high-quality scanning that easily fit into their busy work and home life.”
The CanoScan LiDE 220 and LiDE 120 scanners feature a new “Send” button that enables users to transfer photos or documents to popular cloud services such as the Evernote® and Dropbox™. For users who want to email photos or documents, the scanners can adjust the size of the scanned file and attach it to a message for easy and seamless delivery. For crafting and scrapbooking enthusiasts, the color image scanners are compatible with My Image Garden software from Canon, which makes organizing and printing photos easy and fun. This software features facial recognition, special filters, calendar organization, automatic layout suggestions, and more.
Ideal for work scenarios that require the scanning of text documents and files, both color image scanners feature Auto Document Fix to help maintain readability by sharpening and blackening text. Another important feature, Auto Scan Mode, automatically adjusts settings by detecting the type of original being scanned, whether it be photo or text. Both color image scanners offer an Advanced Z-lid Expansion Top, which can rise to 20 millimeters for scanning thick items like a scrapbook.
The estimated retail price for the Canon CanoScan LiDE 220 scanner is $89.99** and $59.99** for the CanoScan LiDE 120 scanner. For more information on these new scanners, please visit the Canon U.S.A. website at www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/scanners/photo_scanners.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money.
