Re: Introducing spreads: command-line workflow tool

Hi fellow bookscanners!

I am having trouble getting spreads to download from http://buildbot.diybookscanner.org/nigh ... est.tar.gz.
I get all the dependencies downloaded and installed except for Wand and Spreads.

Re: Nokia PureView 41MP

But how many phones have 41 mp capacity? Especially in such a nice compact package! :-) Not a conspiracy theorist just understand various 'security risks' of multiple ports and prefer open systems or at least those that allow end-users more flexibility in using any given tools beyond the designer's ...

Re: Nokia PureView 41MP

Update on this, I did some searching on Ebay and used Nokia 1020 with cracked display glass (but fully functional) are $70 in the US.

Re: Nokia PureView 41MP

Vitorio, Thank you for the html controls!!!!! You mention a CameraPro manual. The only one I can find is very much a quick-start and doesn't include any info on the Wifi controls.
