The other new model, the e3470, also scans straight to the Net but comes with universal transparency cover (UTC), allowing negative slides up to 4in by 5in to be scanned online as well.

Both scanners scan at resolutions of 600 by 1200 dpi, capable of handling 4 trillion colours. The price tag on the e 3420 is $129, and the e3470 it is $179 and are available now in the States. Go to the Umax site for more details.
