I did some research before buying a scanner and I bought Epson Perfection
33-330. The iscan application let you choose the image format. I am not
quite sure what it uses if I say multiple pages in one PDF. I will try
this, but I assume it acts based on the configuration before scanning (i.e.
grayscale or black/white etc.)
