Someone should try this new model from Fujitsu,
At US$ 623, it sounds like a bargain. That's the
price I currently see at Amazon. But even if it
were $ 800 or 1200, it would still make sense.
What scanning resolution (dots per inch or
megapixels) does it produce?
Don't let the name fool you. Previous "ScanSnap"
products are sheet-fed scanners that require the
book to have the spine cut off. This is an over-head
scanner looking down at the open, unhurt book. You
should even be able to bring this scanner to the
library reading room to capture rare books that
they don't allow you to bring home. It's not a
digital camera array, though, but a linear scanner
that sweeps across the page, as the videos show.
