Very nice scanner

I've been looking for something like this for a while...

 

http://www.plustek.com/product/book3600.asp

 

 

I needed a solution for those rarer auction catalogs and books that can't be pressed flat to scan without damaging them.

Also, books and catalogs with images & text that come very close to the inner borders are normally very difficult to scan without getting a curved image. This solves both problems by having a scan region with glass that comes right to the edge of the machine with virtually no border. As shown, its very easy to get a whole page.

 

Anyway, it arrived today and my first scan of a catalog went very well. I'm happy :ninja:

It appears to be very useful. Was it expensive?

 

$249 at TigerDirect

I think they make more expensive versions too.

 

One limitation on the $250 version is the maximum size of the scan region...around 8.5"x11.7". 95% of catalogs & books will scan OK, but larger formats will need a couple of passes to get the images (if that's what you're after).

 

What I also like is that if the scanner sits on the edge of a table, one side of the catalog/book can hang down freely and you really don't have to open it up very much. No more pressing books down flat (or photographing pages). :ninja:
