What a fascinating thread (except for the math parts, of course)! Lots of great information and links. It's got me wondering what objects I can scan, without moving too far from my chair. Thanks.

Here is the National Geographic article I mentioned...Moth scans


They used an EverSmart Pro II scanner... a bit more than most of us can afford!

I guess I'll have to wait until my kitty brings in a feather to see how well it does with that. Did you get a chance to check out the alt.binaries scanners. I found it very useful.

Lisa - I've been on that newsgroup a few times and found it to very helpful when I was looking to buy my current scanner. I have not been on newsgroups much since finding this site though!

I scanned a few more things today, including a dead cricket , a cool chunk of bark, and a really old key. I'm thinking of devoting a chunk of my web site to a page of scanned objects. I'll post it if I ever get around to making it! (...and if I ever stop making silly album covers )

Scanning objects seems to be a good way to really push your scanner to it's limits. A real object contains far more visual information than even the sharpest transparency. A good example is when I scan an object at 1200 ppi and then again at 2400ppi. When I have done this with slides or negatives, I can only tell a small amount of difference between the two scans. This led me to believe that Epson's claim of 2400ppi optical was a bit exaggerated. However, scanning a real object at the two different resolutions resulted in a tremendous difference!

Wow! I haven't seen this thread in a couple of days. You guys have been from rocket science math to scanning dinosaur leg bones! It's all very interesting.

Ed - I'm leaving the math to Lisa and Doug!

I'm not up to dinosaurs yet, but I had fun scanning a cricket...The spiders in the house are quivering in fear!

Kewl. I can see there is no arachniphobia with you! I took a great spider shot close up with my old camera that was kind of freaky looking. You could see the eyes and sack close up.

P.S. Like the new avatar. At least you don't get accused of making a 70's avatar (ha ha BigAl)
