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 I want to scan historical documents which are large and cannot be scanned using a flatbed scanner.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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
