Handheld Scanner Tags: Scanners Reviews Peripherals Last response: January 28, 2011 4:32 PM in Computer Peripherals Share bibadoa January 28, 2011 2:30:39 PM Does anyone have any recommendations for a handheld scanner? I want to scan historical documents which are large and cannot be scanned using a flatbed scanner. I want the images to be as good quality as possible but cannot seem to find reviews of scanners. The one I am currently thinking of getting is found here: http://www.maplin.co.uk/portable-handheld-scanner-with-... Would this seem as good as any or is there something I should be looking for? More about : handheld scanner Anonymous January 28, 2011 4:32:06 PM It is possible to scan part of a page on a flatbed, then the rest and stitch them together later. Maplin ain't exactly the cheapest place to buy stuff and they do occasionally offer some less than wonderful products. I suspect you need to do some googling for some reviews of handheld models. They were fashionable 10 or more years ago and probably proved unsatisfactory in operation. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
