Re: Libreflip - a new open source page-turning bookscanner

You should also note that if the angle between the two platens is only 90 degrees, you'll see a reflection of the adjacent platen (page) in the captured image. The angle between the platens should be closer to 100 degrees to prevent this and to be able to position the light closer to the platen 'v'...

Re: Libreflip - a new open source page-turning bookscanner

Are the scanner's cameras capable of capturing images at this point? Yes and no. In Episode 24, they worked already, but more software development introduced a Bug, which is why currently they dont work. The Bug will be fixed, but the lovely Programmer is currently rather busy and does not have muc...

Re: Libreflip - a new open source page-turning bookscanner

Hi bestscannersearcher, I don't have a deadline. I will continue to work on Libreflip two or three evenings per week, as I have a full-time job and can't invest more time in Libreflip (although I would love to!) I am not very far away from finishing the machine, but no one knows what will break next...

Re: Libreflip - a new open source page-turning bookscanner

I just published a new Episode! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzynGkqinAo These industrial cameras are made for rather video or high frequency fotos, while for book scanning a reguar stills camera would be sufficient. And I do not necessarily need color. Well, for the one newspaper published in ex...
