Building a “scanner” camera

Building a “scanner” camera

camera.jpgCatching up with some recorded TV…AOTS featured building a camera from a flatbed scanner. While they couldn’t get the results they wanted- check out Michael Golembewski’s site. He has some amazing pictures and a how-to on his project. Here’s another camera-scanner project which was featured too. I have an old scanner so I’ll try and build one and see how it works out.
