I have a 6350 and can confirm that it will scan at 1200dpi optical
resolution. Any resolution thereafter will be handled in software. If
I do a 1200dpi color scan uncropped, the resulting image saved in
xscanimage is *huge*, roughly 800MB or so.
I just fired up xscanimage and noticed that the "bit depth" option in
"Advanced Properties" only contains "8, 10, and 12" for the selection?
From the box:
1200 dpi optical resolution
1200x2400 dpi hardware resolution
I'm not an expert on some of this marketing spin, so make of this what
you will. The resolution seems a no-brainer, but the bit depth may need
further investivation. FWIW, for the price of this scanner, you
*should* get true 36-bit color, but I don't know for sure. Sorry.
