Is there any thread with photo samples?
I'd like compare them with my results, I don't know if it is possible to achieve a better quality (definition, sharpness) or on the contrary I have to resign with I got.

Thanks.

You might take a look at Daniel's discussion of the lighting module on the Archivist.

He also has some samples there and talks about his design. If you want to play around with the Soraa bulbs he recommends and a couple of lenticular lenses, let me know and I can send you some. The LED bulbs themselves are back ordered and you will want to order them yourself. But I could get you the lenses, the sockets, and an adapter that will work with them so you can integrate them into your scanner.

@duering it is very kind of you. I'm going to look for here in spain, and if I don't find them, I'll ask you (Shipping costs from EEUU to spain are expensive).
