Dear all,
I have had a great breakthrough in large scale book scanning with a good camera-phone just a few days back. Will elaborate on this within a few days as soon as settle down back home.

Hi Tito,

After reading what you intend to do with the scanner, I think you can do a pretty job scanning documents using a phone camera with good quality instead. Besides, it won't be difficult to carry around - it'll just be in your pocket

I, for instance, scan documents using my phone, which fortunately, has 20 megapixel. I use the software called Camscanner[1] which works well on Android. It allows converting your scanning into PDF and other formats for safe keeping.

Of course you don't need a 20 megapixel camera to scan documents. Somewhere 8 to 12 megapixel is enough to get HD quality of documents, if that's what you're aiming for.

Though not scanning,[2] I could get some nice pictures with just with my phone, just to show that, with careful orientation, you can scan, even better documents with your phone


Just my suggestion.
