    Greetings,

    I've been looking around the local stores for a HP Flatbed scanner and no
    one seems to have any, when they formerly carried 4 to 5 models. Is HP
    discontinuing their flat bed line or perhaps introducing a whole new line?
    Sales people (kids) look at you like your nuts when you aske them.

    Thanks

    Mark

    Hah! I just had to replace my venerable HP ScanJet 4c (with SCSI adaptor).
    Went to CompUSA and MicroCenter, neither of which carried a healthy
    selection of flatbeds. Multifunction printer/scanner/fax, sure, but flatbeds
    aren't as exciting as they used to be, I guess.

    There's always bhphotovideo.com and other online vendors...

  4. We just bought an HP 4490 Photo as a backup for some larger format negatives
    we scan. As we wanted it quickly - i.e with in a few hours we had to go to
    PC world.

    For apx 120$ and up you now get an HP Fax copier, scanner and quality
    printer. The 7300 line wont do slides or film negative but many scanners
    wont, I looked at the 3310 yesterday it also does slides and 35 mm
    negatives. Multifunction are where it is at, for real quality slide and
    negatives im sure a dedicated film scanner is needed,

    We bought a multifunction flatbed scanner -- a HP 3380 -- and we're
    having difficulty locating a good program that will allow us to
    crop/cut/edit scanned material. I've been using a program called Imaging
    which, I believe, is a Kodak program. There are a couple of problems
    with this program. It is highly unstable. Even though my computer is
    connected to a UPS, the program often gets corrupted after a power
    outage. Then, I have to de-install the program completely and re-install
    it. Furthermore, the scanned printed text doesn't result in a printed
    hard copy that is as densely black and crisp as the original.

    Can anyone recommend a good scanning program that will let me edit the
    images?

    Thanks!

    Didnt your 3380 come with HP Image Zone, if not call HP. HP director
    scans into image zone for me automaticly and then I can edit. Try
    Picassa it is free on google.
