Portronics has been constantly upgrading its portable scanner lineup with a few value-added features. While the Scanny 3 gave the freedom to wirelessly share the scanned data to any device over Bluetooth, the Scanny 4 lets users preview the scan before sharing.
Targeted at home users, business and creative professionals, the preview feature eliminates the need to rescan when the results are not up to the mark. Now, postscanning, users can use the preview key and the 1-inch colour LCD display to check the scan before transferring it to a PC. There is also a 8x zoom option to check the finer points.
Almost similar to its predecessor in looks, the Scanny 4 is powered by 2 AA batteries. The scan button is used for power on/off as well as to activate scanning. Press the scan key once and start moving the device over an A4 sheet. Once done, press the scan key again to stop. The Scanny 4 also lets users choose be- tween the 300, 600 and 900 dpi. Although the default scanning mode is JPG, it also allows users to generate a PDF. As the Scanny 4 doesn’t have an inbuilt memory, it only comes into action once a microsd card is installed. Also, the Bluetooth transfer feature available in Scanny 3, isn’t a part of the Scanny 4. Hence for transferring data, one will have to plug in a USB cable.
