It does not like to be turned upside down because the scanning head is held down by gravity and hits the clear bed. I cant think of a single reason why one can't be modified to fit on a camera but isn't there a problem in that a flatbed scanner reflects a rather bright light to capture its subject. Now I know a lens can focus an image to the flatbed of a scanner and the lamp could be removed but can a flat bed scanner head capture an image this way with so little light? Surely the biggest problem isn't some sort of power supply for field work (any car would do for this.) Joseph - Please: Stay on topic.
