geogphotos Posted December 9, 2019 Share Posted December 9, 2019 (edited) I've spent quite a bit £££ ( for me) on three albums of Victorian photos some of superb quality - Portugal, Spain and Italy tourist highlights and street scenes. They are bound in fixed with each page having a photo on a thick card page - these pages have become a little warped and wavy. Most are A4 or less in size but some larger. Even at A4 my cheap printer/scanner combo can't get sharp focus on the edges. HPENVY 5540 - just a cheapo office printer. So, what are the options for a good quality scanner for the job of digitising these treasures for stock and prints bearing in mind that I do not want to split up the albums or cut out the photos from the pages. I've seen some book scanners with overhead lens but they look cheap and how do they focus on a book or print with an uneven surface? This will not just be a one-off expense as I am planning to concentrate more on historical/vintage photography since stock is so overdone.
