Produce creative photo projects with world's first, 6-color photo scanner for industry leading color accuracy. Capture colors that are 40% more accurate than other competitive scanners for true-to-the-original scans.1

• Capture even more beautiful colors with 6-color, 96-bit scanning technology. Exclusive to HP, this scanning technology detects a wider range of color than other 48-bit, 3-color scanners, delivering the highest-quality photo scans.1 With this technology, you'll get the most realistic photo reproductions with greater detail and color accuracy.

Effortlessly scan stacks of film using a built-in adapter that holds even more slides and negatives. HP makes it easy to restore old or damaged photos and film. You can even remove dust and scratches from film at the touch of a button.

• Preserve memories stored on decades-old 35 mm slides or traditional photo negatives, for beautiful photo reprints. Save time scanning up to 16 slides, 30 negative frames, six medium format (120 mm) film frames or one 4 x 5-inch film frame at once using an adapter built into the scanner's lid—no special, cumbersome adapters are needed. Easily transform the images into digital photos that can be printed, shared through e-mail or saved on your computer.

It's fast and easy to preserve all your photo and film memories. Quickly scan multiple photos, slides or negatives to individual files. Make reprints and save scans at the touch of a button. Plus, HP Photosmart software makes it easy to share.

• Enjoy quick, easy scanning of multiple images at once. Scan up to four 4 x 6-inch photos and automatically save them as individual files—no need to crop or resize. Ideal for older or odd-size photos, the photos are automatically stored to a location you specify on your computer. Scan multiple slides or negatives, too, as well as larger photos and portraits. HP scanners automatically detect and deskew photos, even when scanned from album pages.

Scan resolution enhanced disclaimer (long)
What is the maximum resolution at which I can scan? HP Scanjet scanning systems will allow you to specify a resolution of up to 999,999 enhanced dpi. In addition, by using lower dpi and high-scale factors (enlarging the image using dimension or resize tool), you can achieve a very high enhanced dpi. However, it is important to note that the maximum resolution that can be actually achieved depends upon various factors, including computer speed, available disk space, memory, the size of the image being scanned and bit-depth settings. Thus, depending on your system and what you are scanning, you may not be able to scan at certain resolutions. For example, using the same image and same dpi, scanning in 24-bit color requires at least 24 times more memory (in the form of hard disk space and available memory) than scanning in 1-bit black and white. In addition, the size of the area being scanned is very important. For example, scanning a 4 x 6-inch photograph at 999,999 enhanced dpi and 24-bit color requires over 64 terabytes of disk space; thus, if your computer has a 50-gigabyte hard disk, which would be quite large, such a scan would require over 1,000 disks. Even a 1/10th-inch square area, scanned at 999,999 enhanced dpi as a 1-bit black-and-white image (not 24-bit color), creates an uncompressed file of over nine gigabytes.
Scan resolution enhanced disclaimer (short)
The maximum dpi at which you can scan is limited by available computer memory, disk space and other system factors.
