Assembled bookscanner + cameras + eyefi cards in Bay Area

Post by penny » 26 Oct 2014, 14:51

I have an already assembled bookscanner (one of the kits), including 2 cannon cameras, camera trigger, and eyefi cards. I also splurged for museum glass for the glass plates. The bookscanner is in working condition, and I just used it this weekend.

I'm moving from the bay area, and on the fence whether I should sell it or take it with me. So I thought I would throw this out there and see if anyone is interested in it.

I am uploading a couple pictures in case anyone is interested. The two cameras are Canon PowerShot A2200.

The scanner is painted matte black. However, for image processing I found it helpful to have a *white* background behind the books, so I've taped 2 white regular pieces of paper on the book-holding leaves, but these are easily removed.

Hey! I'm in San Francisco and I'm very much interested!

I don't think I can send PMs on this board - they don't seem to leave the Outbox, so please email me at logandecker[at]yahoo.com

Thanks!
