Featuring an advanced 3-line CMOS sensor technology, the DR-4010C device scans documents at a rapid rate of up to 42
ppm* and 84 ipm* in color just as quickly as in black and white.

Buyer's Laboratory Inc. gives the DR-4010C Highly Recommended rating.

The DR-4010C color document scanner features state of the art scanning technology that delivers exceptional image quality and speed. This fast, reliable desktop scanner packs top of the line features into a compact user-friendly unit without sacrificing image quality for speed.


Exceptional Image Quality

Fine lines and intricate image details are captured with utmost
precision and clarity thanks to the DR-4010C device’s advanced scanner technologies. The 3-line sensor combined with the pinpoint color matching of the 3-Dimensional Color Correction chip reproduce exceptional vivid 24-bit color images.

To further ensure image clarity the DR-4010C scanner is equipped with automatic shading mechanism and extra-wide image sensor that adjust prior to each scan job for the finest image quality.

Clean, Clear Image Reproduction

The DR-4010C device provides a clean and easy-to-read image in a matter of seconds. A hard-to-read image can be transformed into a crystal clear document with the Moiré function.** The new and improved three text enhancement modes optimize the readability of documents, such as light colored text and patterned background documents, for an accurate OCR. To further ensure clear and quality images, the DR-4010C scanner is equipped with the Punch Hole Removal and image-bleed-through technology.

Advanced Scanner Features

The DR-4010C desktop scanner is packed with advanced image processing features to boost your scanning efficiency. For fast, unattended batch scanning, this scanner automatically detects page size, skips blank pages, straightens skewed images, and rotates images that are sideways or upside down, and much more.

The DR-4010C scanner is equipped with Automatic Color Detection for easy, low-maintenance scanning. By detecting color, it eliminates the need to separate black-and-white and color documents prior to scanning.

Reliable Document Feeding

Canon’s innovative feeding mechanism with retard rollers helps to ensure reliable page separation for fast, unattended batch scanning. The DR-4010C desktop scanner is equipped with ultrasonic sensors that can detect a gap between overlapping pages to prevent double feeds. Rapid Recovery System will allow you to simply reposition the document and seamlessly continue scanning.

Diverse Document Handling

The DR-4010C scanner features a versatile dual paper path designed to accommodate diverse document types. The default U-turn paper path handles batch scanning at high speeds, while a straight paper path provides the flexibility to scan plastic cards, fragile and thick documents. The DR-4010C device easily handles a wide variety of document sizes from business cards to legal size document and up to 39" in long document mode. With its ability to handle a range of document types and sizes, the DR-4010C scanner provides the utmost document scanning flexibility.

User Friendly Scanning
The DR-4010C unit lets you assign routine scan tasks to three customizable one-touch job buttons for quick and easy scanning. With over 100 different job applications to choose from, this user-friendly model makes scanning operations a breeze.
Bundle Software
The DR-4010C comes bundled with Canon's Capture Perfect and Adobe® Acrobat® software, in addition to a full-featured ISIS®/TWAIN driver.
