Using your scanner as a camera

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by Vincent de Groot, Mar 30, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    a few months ago I posted a request to review some "photographs" made
    with a flatbed scanner. The question was is this photography.

    I just have published an article how to use your scanner as a "camera"
    if you are interrested, you find it here:

    Best Regards,

    From one of your links, the copy machine seems to get a lot of DOF:

  7. I would suggest you add a warning about some scanners, eg the Canon
    LIDE series, having extremely limiited DOF. They *suck* at 3-d
    objects!

    ...good article, though.

    Isaac Newton used to look directly into the sun for hours at a time, it
    didn't seem to affect him at all so I don't think a scanner will do any
    harm. Maybe it increases your brain power.

    well i kept my eyes closed at first...
    but it did not seem horribly bright...so i opened them up for part of
    the scan...
    it certainly was not as bad as a camera's flash.

    however looking at the sun for even a small period of time is very
    dangerous...
    btw: Isaac Newton is now dead...so that proves looking into the sun is a
    bad idea !!! <g>
