Product Description

Fopydo stand and software were designed for convenient scanning of many pages of paper - either loose sheets or bound documents. Our stand allows to adjust the distance between the camera and scanned documents in order to supports various types of devices. Cameras are positioned in a stable orthogonal position in relation to scanned objects. Our free versatile software for Macs and Windows OS was designed for lager scanning jobs - the crop of the first page is applied by default to all pages of scanned documents. Our stand can be used with other scanning software like Genius Scan for iOS and improve scanning results.

This looks to be a pretty clever idea.

I have a couple of nice flatbed scanners, but for scanning books (and large documents) the Fopydo can't be beat.

Cons: Seems well made just not sure how well it will hold up over time but i do not see any initial issues.

So far I think this is a good choice. Far better then trying to take pictures of multiple items while holding the device that you are using (which speeds up the capture process). You could use a camera tripod for the cost of $150.00 (and to use a cell phone there would be an additional cost of a cell phone holder that works with tripods) or you could get a less expensive tripod which you would find it hard to get it in the right position if you could at all.

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.

Update: Arrived in a 1x12x13 brown box very similar to that in the videos showing it removed from a box and put together.

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.

This is a great product for scanning with an iPhone.
I did have some problem with using it with an iPad Air. I was going to take one star for it, but the customer service and responsiveness from the inventor/owner was so exceptional that I have to give it 5-star. The holder for iPad occasionally would slip off. The company is aware of it and will not advertise it for iPad Air use anymore (so I am told).
This beats hand hold the iPhone trying to scan a whole of papers.

... the stand shown and sold above WILL NOT work with "Other Devices Equipped with Digital Cameras" like a tablet or an iPad. To use those devices you need a different metal bracket to support the iPad. Said bracket is not included with the product sold here.

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.

The Fopydo Scanning Stand is nice prototype of a potentially useful product. The cardboard cutout I got in the mail is, however, a very sad example of what bright but greedy people are capable of when they decide to market their idea, keep the cost as low as possible, and make a killing in the process. For $30 + $10 S&H what you get is a bunch of pieces of plasticized cardboard and the opportunity to invent your own scanning stand. Not even a piece of paper with instructions. Very sad.
