Comments

We use a Cruse digital scanner for all our book and artwork scanning, the quality with the Cruse is amazing but comes with a big price tag. I would be interested to see the quality of the DIY scanners and compare results.

I use a Canon 1DS MKII for book or microfilm scanning and the best lens for this is the EOS 50mm Macro lens which is totally rectilinear

Looks good.

Is there a manual available how to build them?

Peter,

You might want to take a look at the Decapod opensource project as well, which, like Daniel's project, is intended as an easy-to-use low cost package for digitization in libraries and archives (or wherever). It's currently in development and funded by the Mellon Foundation:
