Can anyone recommend a scanner that works upside down? Like, instead of putting a document on a scanner I want to put the scanner on the document.
How big does it need to scan?
Then there's this...
EyeClops Bionic Eye Handheld Microscope Toy
I bought a ton of old newspaper things. Like an entire month of newspapers hardbound into giant books. They range from the 1890-1970 and I want to scan spot illustrations and stuff but I don't want to destroy them in the process. They're too big to put on top of my shitty 3-in-1 epson.
Hopefully, I'll be doing a kickstarter for CrapHound style booklet of the end results.
Something like this perhaps
Wolverine Twin Rollers Handheld Scanner PASS-200 B&H Photo Video
Scans 8.25" x 50". Pretty cheap too
Personally I like to scan halftones at 1200 dpi and higher from magazine/newspapers as too low a dpi the dots become blurry squares.
Scanning with Mac OS X 10.6/10.7 Using Image Capture
Can't speak to that particular device, but Image Capture has never failed me. I know that's an Epson link, but it works with daggum near everything.
Love seeing Gigposters forum activity. Just sayin'. Miss the education / laughs / weirdness on a daily basis.
Writing is an occupation in which you must constantly prove you have talent to people who have none of their own. --Jules Renard (1864-1910)
You might want to consider a nice camera and a nice camera stand.
