As a 30+ yr Genealogist, bookbinder in training, and collector of early Radio documentation, I have BOXES of paper stored, and every possible bookshelf is crammed in my 11 bookcases!
Starting in the 90's my goal was to digitize my collections. This used to take SO long on my flatbed scanner, and it was riddled with problems. (e.g. folding printed matter to fit the scan area, closing the lid enough that it doesn't create 'light shadows' etc.). I used to spend as much time editing as I did scanning, and scanning took 1-2 days effort per book, etc. Ugh.
With the SV600, I dreamed of a workflow where my piles of paper were SEARCHABLE, and my office was clean!
Out of the box, it was clear that this wasn't a 'hobby' scanner. Its for libraries, or specialists needing 'contact free' scanning.
The SC600 is built like a tank, though you will need to be very careful to follow the instructions on moving the scanner (NEVER pick it up by the movable scanning head!). It comes with a nice neoprene mat that snugs around the base of the unit, and has useful markings on it to center and judge size. Software included MUST be installed before connecting and powering on the unit, or you may get the device confused when it's discovered by your computer.
Software included is: ScanSnap Manager, ScanSnap Organizer, Magic Desktop, Rack-2-Filer, and Adobe Acrobat Standard XI (1 user bundle)
There are a couple of things that really stand out about the software from Fujitsu (not Adobe). Its 'first generation' tools that have a bit of 'engrish' around the edges, and I cant say the help file is great. You will figure out the workflow pretty fast though.
1) Put a book/magazine down centered
2) Push the blue scan button - I usually hold for 2 sec to activate 'page turning mode'
3) 3 sec later, the scan is done and on your screen in SS Manager
4) Turn the page...POOF it scans the next one!! (if it doesn't detect you can hit 'continue', hit the scan button, OR even better for me, hit the SPACE bar to continue
5) when the book is done (I did 88 pages in about 10 min total), click finish
6) You then choose where to send the scan >> Organizer, Rack-2-Filer, Magic desktop, etc. (I always use organizer)
In the SS Organizer, you can choose any page, then edit the scan boundaries, remove any fingers that got into the scan (don't avoid this, hold your items flat with your fingers...they are removed flawlessly), specify if its single page, or double page (it automagically splits multipage scans!)
Once you get things tidy, I export to Rack-2-Filer, where my virtual library is displayed as a bookshelf.
Using the included OCR features, I can now search across my ENTIRE library!!! WOW. I am grinning ear to ear,
Imagine: You are restoring a radio from 1923, and it has a part that is only labeled "101-2238". Yikes. OK, a quick search across a dozen or more parts catalogs from the 20-30's reveals a match, and indicates a Capacitor with 0.002 umf. _NICE_
I was a little hesitant about the $625-ish price tag, but a week after receiving it, I would buy this scanner again in a heartbeat.
My recycling bin received two BOXES of paper now scanned, and the wife is very happy, and I think I will go scan some guitar sheet music that is gathering dust.
Not long after I received the scanner, I immediately began to realize some of its shortcomings for my intended use:
1. Wrinkled pages = no go!
If your documents are not completely flat, the resulting image or text will be distorted. Since the scanner scans at an angle, any imperfection on the page surface will really stand out. A sheet of non-reflective glass will help flatten the page and help obtain a higher quality scan.
2. Quality of Photos = 1-2 megapixel range.
I was planning on using the scanner to scan historic photographs, but the resulting images were somewhat blotchy when enlarged. A traditional flatbed scanner or high megapixel camera is still the best at copying photos.
3. Scanning Books = lots of time!
If your book pages are completely flat with perfect edges, then you will be able to scan a book in no time. However, if your book is older or has more of a curve issue, be prepared to spend some time editing and fixing the scans. I had to use sheets of non-reflective glass in order to get higher quality scans. The bundled software does a pretty good job at straightening the pages, but you will invariably get some skewed pages out of the blue.
This high speed scanner does have it's place, and I would still recommend the SV600 to anyone needing to quickly digitize their documents. The best thing to do is spend some time experimenting with the software and settings.
I would NOT recommend this scanner to Museums or Archival institutions that need to make high resolution scans of historic documents and photos. The quality is just not there for archival purposes. I can live with some skewed pages for most documents, but if you are scanning an old yearbook and expect to be able to zoom in to the pictures, be prepared for some grainy, blotchy results.
