=== Cameras === We use two [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EOS_1100D Canon Digital Rebel T3] cameras, attaching the scanner frame to the body with a screw that resembles what you would find in a tripod head. Each is connected via USB to a computer and remote-controlled with a [https://github.com/danyq/diybookscanner Python script] that uses the [http://www.gphoto.org/doc/remote/ gphoto2 library]. There is no battery or persistent storage in either camera. Pictures are transferred to the controller computer after the shutter is triggered. If you would like to use different cameras, [http://www.gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php there is a list of cameras] supported by gphoto2 . The settings as of this revision are the following <pre> mode: M aperture: F14 shutter: 1/20 ISO: auto zoom: 24mm stabilizer: on manual focus </pre> All manual settings # The zoom is adjusted by turning the ring around the lens and looking at the numbers, which indicate millimeters. # The mode is indicated by turning the circular knob on the upper left, so the letter M is facing the arrow. # The stabilizer is a physical switch on the lens.
