Apple keeps changing their Mac OS and Canon will not update the driver for my scanner. VueScan keeps my Canon scanner operating with each new Mac OS version that comes around. Boo for Canon - Kudos for VueScan!

VueScan provides the simplest way to make your scanner work, none of the problems of Windows drivers "not found". That also means that old hardware gets a new lease of life, ecologically friendly at its best!

My scanner, though perfectly good mechanically, had been orphaned heading into Windows 7. VueScan brought it back into use, and the new version for Windows 10 carried that on. The application is excellent.

Canon 8000F

VueScan is compatible with the Canon 8000F 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. Unfortunately, Canon doesn't have a driver for this scanner on Windows x64.

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:

  1. Click on the VueScan icon while holding the Control key
  2. Choose 'Get Info'
  3. Check 'Open using Rosetta'

Note that Canon drivers for Windows Vista or later will usually work on Windows 10.
