I read the post "I'm building a LF SCANNER camera" by Project ESE from 5-Mar-2010, and got inspired.
I thought that one article  mentioned in that thread was very good. But in the article they have used scanners with LIDE (LED Indirect Exposure) technology and more or less say that the 'normal' scanner technology used by most manufacturers is not recommended.
The Fujustu fi60-F scanner seem to be well suited for 4x5" cameras. But I guess it does not use LIDE technology, though I cannot find any information on their homepage.
If I understand the article correct, one of the problems with scanners that don't use LIDE is that the sensor is not 'full width' and uses lenses and mirrors to cover the entire width of the scan area.
But in my case I'm not after extreme high resolution, but more a fun project and a working affordable digital back for my 4x5" camera. I think it would be possible to modify the Fujustu fi60-F scanner to work with a 4x5" camera without too many modifications. I guess the scanner light and glass plate should be removed.
Does anyone have any good advise or comments before I start?
