VueScan is compatible with the Canon 5200F on Windows and Mac OS X.
This scanner has an infrared lamp for scanning film. VueScan's 'Filter | Infrared clean' option can be used to remove dust spots from film scans. This is similar to (and we think better than) the ICE and FARE algorithms.
It scans with visible light in the first pass and with infrared light in the second pass.
Infrared cleaning works well with all types of color negative and color slide film, including Kodachrome. However, silver-based black/white film doesn't work with infrared cleaning because the silver particles look the same in visible light and infrared light.
You need to install the Canon driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X.
On Windows x64, you need to use VueScan x64 to use this scanner's transparency adapter.
This scanner isn't supported on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and later, since Canon uses a PowerPC plugin for this scanner and Rosetta isn't available with 10.6 and later.
On Mac OS X prior to 10.6, you need to use the x32 version of VueScan 9.0.96 with Rosetta. To do this:
- Click on the VueScan icon while holding the Control key
- Choose 'Get Info'
- Check 'Open using Rosetta'
Note that Canon drivers for Windows Vista or later will usually work on Windows 10.
