Question about Canon CanoScan 4200F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning for video

I am using a canon 4200f and scanning slides and photos for a video project. The quality is great but they are to small for the Final Cut propgram I am using. When viewing the pictures do not fill the frame. Any ideas?

After the first scan through select the zoom in functionality to just scan the area you want to zoom in. That way the scanned image will be much bigger and better quality.

good luck

Black and white photos from many years ago now have a blue-green hue on them when they are scanned. it started after I scanned old slides.


Did you make changes to the scan type when you scanned the slides? It sounds like you have the scanner set to do a negative image as a slide would need.
Check the preferences for the scan type.
The scanning manual is available on Canon's Website.

I am not a techie and I bought two Canon HV20 cameras for a small video project we are doing in Florida after reading some sensational reviews. We took the first batch of tapes to our "producer" who...


Yes..it's available from a reseller that works with Canon. If you can give me the actual model number from that unit, and perhaps a serial number, we'll be able to proceed.

OTOH, that question about the Canon and Final Cut, that's usual. Those folks don't even go to the same conventions or seminars.

Digital madness.

Sony Handycam HDR-XR550V records your memories and snap 12.1-megapixel photos directly to the massive 240GB hard disk drive (HDD). The shooting quality of the HDR-XR550V is impressive and naturally lives up to its flagship status and price. In line with Blu-ray formats in the market, recording is supported up to 24Mbps. High definition videos are recorded at 1920 x 1080 resolutions primarily to the in-built HDD. Picture quality was sharp and crisp, a result which was equally pleasing when viewing on a HD monitor or TV. <br /><br />Many people say Sony HDR-XR550V is the best hard drive camcorder from Sony at the moment and its excellent performance has won hearts of many customers. A lot of our customers use Sony HDR-XR550V for recording family videos, such as holiday vacation at east coast beach, your children?s birthday party or your pet?s playing video.

In this way, all video clips will be merged as one single movie for conversion. <br /><br />3. <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/sony_hdr-xr550v_review_-_convert_avchd_to_apple_prores_for_editing_in_fcp/">Convert Sony XR550V MTS files to ProRes MOV</a></b>. <br />Click the Export button and choose ?Export into Editor?.

Videos are now a small picture and when expanded are POOR quality


It seems that you have reduced the resolution of the vedio capturing format. In format settings change it to maximum avaialbe resolution such as 1024x900, etc ( maximum among available). Also for increasing the still photo resolution, select the maximum mega pixel such as 3.2/5/etc.. Usually the mega pixels can be changed using any short cut keys.

Cant scan 4cm x 4xm slides


The mounted slide scanning option is set for scanning 35mm mounted slides (24mm x 36mm). As far as I know there is no way to change this setting. You may want to try using the film scan option, do a preview scan, and then crop each individual slide for the final scan.
