What about this, Daniel?

My name is Henrique and I'm from Brazil.
I found your book scanner searching at Google and looking for a book scanning solution.
My pictures show your "baby": I've installed two solenoids above the cameras (Canon Powershot SX30) and an arcade button trigger.
Of course, that's all powered by an electric outlet, it's shown in pictures.
The two white cables allow me quick access to captures images, as I can copy them directly to my computer.
My desire at this forum is finding some free, open source solutions, specially when talking about OCR technologies.

Wow, this is really great work! Fantastically done. I can't believe I missed your post - I usually check all posts at least every other day, but somehow I missed yours. Great work, and thanks for sharing it back.
