My old scanner has recently died (Black Widow 9636) which was superb for
scanning objects such as action figures.

Can anyone suggest a good alternative scanner which can do the same thing
and that is compatible with XP Pro (the 9636 wasn't!).

Many thanks in advance.

Just about any of todays scanners that have a CCD (Charged-Coupled Device)
sensor will do a good job with objects.

CIS (Contact Image Sensor) sensors have very little depth of field.

My Canon D1250 does coins rather well and even did a passable job on a
commemorative mug. Of course, I did one view and then turned the mug
about 90 degrees for the rest. I guess, if it had been necessary I
could have used 4 views.
