You need to put the cameras in Manual Mode by switching the Mode Dial to "'M'".

Set the aperture to F8.

Set the shutter to 1/50 of a second or faster.

Set the White Balance to "Tungsten".

Set the Quality to Superfine and the Resolution to Large.

Your cameras are ready. If you keep them in "M" mode they will retain these settings.

1/50 and f/8 won't always result in the same exposure if different lighting is used, or if the book is really glossy.
