    I manage to control depth of field, apply the SUNY 16 rule. Lots cool effects that you can’t get with regular cameras. U used all types of scanners, there is a trick it took me years to discover.

    Nothing, people think too much about it. All you need: buy or make a 5x7 camera and Dixie flip scanner, glue it with double tape on to the back (rear) standard and us a dslr focussing hood as a loupe. You won’t need the gg, you will need to find an old lcd tv,brake it and save the gg sheet. A ground glass will give you a bright spot in the picture, ( no good)unless you use borosilicate glass. ($$)
    LCD tv’s, (not plasmas) have 4 sheets, one black,one white, one fresnel and one gg. You need the last one. Install the price of that sheet on to the Doxie’s glass with the coarse fecing the back of the scanner,(facing the sensor).Bingo! Tell your model not to breath for 10 secs. Enjoy, play with it, don’t listen to the opinions here about: beignet I g on stuff like that. If you want sharpness, buy a dslr. Don’t waste money buying other equipment or experimenting, I already did for you. .

    Well that is very impressive. I've been looking for a scanner back idea. I've been shooting the ground glass and have enjoyed the experiment. I found that shooting wide open aperture reduces the bright spot in the middle enough to make it a useful image. Here's a sample: Click image for larger version.
