I've been using one camera on a tripod with no close up lighting. I do it during the day and I have a daylight bulb. Shadows don't seem to be a problem though the lamp would probably help. But I would use a daylight bulb rather than those old yellow ones. Not sure if that would make much of a difference but I'm guessing it would.I use Scan Tailor for post processing.What I got was a fairly decent PDF of a relatively rare book that is not cheap to get second hand online.I think for me the biggest thing is reducing page curvature. I could just try placing a piece of perspex flat down on the book...Using one camera on each side would take too long and Scan Tailor works only on pictures with two pages in them.

Nice idea. I was doing it already, but I never thought about the light above the book to minimize or eliminate the shadow caused by the camera and the tripod. Thank you.
This is beautiful.
Great read and awesome detailed project. Too much work for me though. Good thing I prefer physical books to e books.
WHY ARE THE TOP COMMENTS THE SAME?!
Hello, I wish to buy a knife that is cheaper than its other versions because it is coated with a rainbow finish, would anodizing the blade remove this finish? And also is there a coating that I can buy in order to give it a finish of my own i.e. black? Thank you
