The scanner is capable of 30 bit scans. The author of Vuesmart claims that in spite of this, the software from HP that comes with the scanner will only read 24 bits, whereas his program WILL read all 30 bits (and write 16 bit TIFF files, if you have a program that can do much with them). This is what I can't verify. In any case, I do seem to be able to get better scans from problematic b/w negs with vuesmart than with HPs software. Dan C.
