Re: Nokia PureView 41MP

For those who use the Nokia Pureview 1020 as camera, did you know there is a camera grip for it which has an added battery (1020 mAh) and tripod mount? See http://www.windowscentral.com/nokia-lumia-1020-closer-look-41mp-pureview-cam . And here the price for it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listin...

Re: Calling from Utrecht, Netherlands

Good evening Scanty, I am from Rotterdam and I also (still) need to build my scanner. Since I am (again) unemployed I will have more time to dig into the matter. What I need/want to build is the scanner from Daniel, but the most difficult part is to obtain the Gorilla Glass here in the Netherlands. ...

Re: Updated: DIY E-book Creator 0.0.8

Thank you for all your effort. I hope this summer I can start using it. Lucky you did French, because also the German language has strange letters not seen in English. What to think of the Scandinavian languages.Or even Russian and Greek.

Re: No wiki?

And in case you are going to put it up again, are you going to install a newer version of the software. Which enables the administrators to enhance the wiki considerably? ;)

Re: Hello and please don't delete my account

Ask your friend if he is willing to share the code here on the forum.
Maybe others can also use the oe if they have a similar problem.

Re: Help in the Netherlands?

Hello everyone, I see that there are a few members in the Netherlands. I was wondering if there are any DIYers who have been successful at building Dan's scanner around and who would be willing to build mine. Thanks in advance, Esteban Esteban, Helaas ben ik even afwezig geweest en lees nu pas het ...

Re: All threads that mention LiveCD/Linux development

Nobody seems interested in one, so no. If enough people actually want a LiveCD I can start building one, though. Well since I don't know how to build my own livecd I have to rely on people like you and snagit to tell me what to do. See my suggestions on page 1 for packages to include. I have been l...

Re: New 3D Scanner by HP

Well looking to HP's own explanation here: http://www.hp.com/canada/portal/hho/digital_photography/organize_archive_photos/tips/3d_scanning.html it could be nice to use it for making scrapbooks. But for the application of scanning 2d paper, for me it doesn't give me an advantage over the scanners ou...

Re: Lytro

Nice, but on this moment only for Apple... And not usefull for taking pictures from paper. You have only one plane to focus on. The depth of focus of this new camera is dependend on the various objects (emitting) dispersing the available light. I don't think that you will get a 3d picture from a col...

Re: I would like to buy a book scanner from somebody

Hi, I'm getting rid of one that I built myself. It works rather well (I'm moving to a smaller place and have no room)... I used the blueprints provided by the king of DIYbookscanner.org himself. http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff384/jaavila1/IMG_9811.jpg I live in southern california and am ask...
