I was looking at scanners recently as I have some family photographs that I would like to scan and share with my siblings. The salesman told me that I should make sure I get a scanner that is capable of 2400x2400 resolution. The only scanner they had that was capable of that was a 48-bit HP scanner (I don't remember the model number) that cost about $200. I don't mind paying a few extra dollars for a scanner if it will produce a better digitized image, but would I really be gaining anything by buying a 2400x2400 scanner? Most printers aren't capable of that (at least not yet), but I don't know about monitors. So I guess my question is, was the salesman correct? Or would I just as likely be satisfied with a less expensive scanner. Again, I will likely be scanning photographs much more frequently than text. Thanks in advance for any comments and recommendations. Steve K.
