So far I have only tried it with my cell phone camera which is 8 Megapixels. I like it because it does seem to be well made and should hold up (although I did just get this). At the time of writing this review the software they provide (through their website) is free of charge. I had seen in a earlier video (not from their website) that there was two different versions of the software a free version with less features and one you had to pay for with more features. It would seem they changed their minds and now offer it for free with all the features available (although I have not tried the software out yet) I reached this conclusion because when you go to their website only one version of the software is available for download. The software has the ability (after watching tutorials on their website) to crop and process even and odd pages and then put them all together. This saves time when capturing by being able to do all even page and then all odd pages and then have the software assemble them. The best part about the software is the cropping feature allowing you to get ride of the extra stuff outside of the page size that a camera would capture. Unlike a scanner that would only capture what you need to begin with.Read more ›
First impression is its more substantial that I was initially thinking. The camera bracket with the quarter-20 "Camera Screw" slot is a light but stiff aluminum material painted black. The frame is of a stiff corrugated plastic matte black. Neatly tucked inside are the feet that are to be removed and inserted in slots underneath. The camera holder is also inside and must be removed and threaded over the flip up metal rods twisted down to lay flat for transport.
A 1/4"-20 Camera Screw does not come with the heavier camera mounting bracket, but they can be found on B&H and here on Amazon simply by searching on the keywords "Camera Screws" good quality chrome plated ones can be had for about six dollars for a pack of two.
I found myself a little disoriented at first, but had watched several of the videos on YouTube and quickly assembled it.
Its surprisingly light weight, but doesn't feel all that flimsy considering its not made of metal or a preformed thermal plastic. But its design does suggest that a stiffer model could be made at a slightly increased cost.
I have a Nexus5 phone with a built-in camera. Which easily fit in the place occupied by an iPhone in the videos, and worked very similarly. Aligning a book with the field of view of the camera was trivial. The preset positions of the camera holder and rods in relationship to the angled back plane pretty much aimed everything in the direction it needed to go from the start, a little tweaking and it was perfect.
The "micro-suction" material isn't an adhesive strip, and it gave me the most difficulty when pulling the feet and camera holder from the inside.Read more ›
Initially I thought it was probably useless but after reading the reviews I thought I will give it a try.
It arrived yesterday and I scanned whole 250 page book with my iphone in one hour, while watching CSI on TV!
Post processing took another hour and ... presto!
I am buying another one today to use at my office. I might actually by a third one as a backup, just in case they stop making it...
If you are into scanning books, forget about flatbed scanners ( I have bought 3 in the last 2 years and have not been able to do my job as efficiently as with this one), this is the way to go.
As other reviewers have indicated, this is a good middle of the road alternative to a standard flat bed scanner. It provides most users with a relatively easy way to position and scan single page documents. As a builder and user of larger bookscanners I must stress that this is not an efficient substitute for a platen based scanning rig. If you plan on scanning books this is not your solution.
Having said that, it does what it does well, and i am waiting on Fopydo customer service to respond on how I can obtain the iPad bracket assembly. Update to follow.
