What are you scanning?

There are two main types of scanning technology.

  1. Contact Image Sensor (CIS)SingleSensor_technology_colortrac
  2. Charged-coupled Device (CCD)

Generally, CCD is considered better for photographs and art applications. CIS is designed for use with technical drawings.

Both CCD and CIS will scan color, though if that is your primary focus and you need true color fidelity you may wish to consider CCD.
