Has anyone got any experience with using a copy stand versus a scanner? I've got a huge number of old family photos that I would like to digitise - i.e. thousands. I've also got a significant portion of documents of my parents that I would like to digitise - A4 stuff. I've tried using various scanners before but found the slowness of it all too unbearable. 20/30 seconds per photo just seems insane and I figure with the right kind of DSLR setup, I could do a photo in seconds. I know resolution used to be an issue but my camera's not lacking in megapixels - 24mp D3200. I want to keep the additional outlay as low as possible right now so if I do go the copy stand route, I'd be going for an eBay cheapy. I figure something like this would do the job coupled with a couple of diffuse home lights (I don't have any stand alone flash units) either side might work. Maybe a pane of glass to cover the documents to ensure they're flat. I do have a decent lens at least (35mm 1.8 prime so ~50mm full frame equivalent) so I'm hoping I could get decent results. Has anyone used this kind of method to digitise a large quantity of photos or documents? I'd be using Aperture to catalogue all of the photos and I have Adobe PDF Pro to convert any document photos into PDFs.
