The scanner features a 300 dpi optical resolution and 30-bit color. HP also introduced the Scanjet 4400c, 4470c, 5470c, and 5490c, upgraded versions of their predecessors that feature HP scanning technology previously found only on higher-end models. The 4400c and 4470c feature a 1200 dpi optical resolution, 48-bit color, and sell for $149 and $199, respectively (the 4470c includes a transparency adapter).
