The scanners offer maximum hardware resolutions of 3200x6400 dpi. 48-bit color depth, both USB 2.0 and FireWire connectivity, and a 4" x 9" transparency unit for scanning 35mm slides, negatives and 4" x 5" transparencies. Additionally, the Pro model offers both reflective and transmissive IT8 targets for color matching both film and photos. Both are expected to ship in late March with LaserSoft SilverFast and Adobe Photoshop Elements software. The Pro version also bundles MonacoEZcolor and other ArcSoft titles (PhotoStudio, PhotoBase and Panorama Maker).
