Have you ever needed to scan documents in a hurry? I know that my mother has had to—she's a real estate broker. Many people may know that B&H sells scanners—we are a camera store, after all! However, the Wolverine PASS Hand Scanner is a specialized portable, battery powered scanner that's ideal for scanning on the fly. Recipes, photos, flyers, contracts, etc. can all be scanned and saved in B/W or color, at 300 or 600 DPI. This item runs on two AA batteries, and can connect to your Mac or PC for transfer of your files. Because it is so portable, it can accompany you in your bag or briefcase when you're on the go. This is a convenient option that road warriors may want to consider.
