What is the advantage of being able to output 36-bits?
36-bit scanners obtain image data from a palette of 68 billion colors. Most scanners automatically resample the image down to 24-bit before it reaches the application. With 36-bit output, the user can bring the entire 36-bits of data into the application to allow image adjustments in higher-end image editors supporting 48-bit data modes. This allows the end user the control of selecting the best tonal range possible or they can always let the driver perform the conversion down to 24-bit automatically. The point is that the driver software is working with the full data that the scanner recognizes, resulting in cleaner scans with smoother color gradations and greater shadow details.
