a higher bit depth but then convert to a lower bit depth Because sometimes some device simply won't display a 16 bit image. Chris H already mentioned. The reason to scann it at higher bit depth is because you want a flexible digital original. What's the point of capturing 14 bit images and editing on 8 bit monitors? If you just want an out of the ...

Scanning at high bit depth and reducing it for saving has similarities with shooting raw and converting to an 8 bit per channel format. You can optimise the dynamic range (in the typical scanner options, brightness and contrast) using software on a PC after collecting all the data. A PC can easily handle non-linear mapping of 16 onto 8 bits unlike the simple ...
