Ok, so here's what i want to do. I would like to try and make a giant scanning camera. I've seen it done where the guy rigged up a contraption from the parts of a flatbed scanner and the lens rotates to scan, but i'd like to do something a little different. I want to try just tipping a flatbed scanner (fully assembled) up on its side so that the CCD array would scan horizantally. I was thinkign of building something similar to a bellows camera that would attach to the front of it and a lens or some sort would go on the end (possibly a minolta MD lens because they're so cheap) , i think i would probably need to disable the light source in the scanner, but would this otherwise work? anyone have any experience with scanners or possibly tried this themselves??
