Locally referred to as the "BookDrive", this unit actually consists of an Atiz BookDrive DIY cradle/station with two Canon EOS 5D cameras.
Per the manufacturer website, the unit is suitable for making scans of items with maximum dimensions of 15.7 x 23.2 inches and up to approximately 3.5 inches thick. source: BookDrive DIY. Retrieved February 02, 2011, from http://diy.atiz.com/
To date the unit has been used to make scans for bound copies of items such as the Rammer Jammer.
Canon EOS 5D (basic settings):
- 1/15 shutter speed
- 7.1 aperture
- ISO 320
- M (focus setting from dial)
- RAW (image quality setting)
- AWB (auto white balance)
Default File/Output Settings
- version 126.96.36.199
The Canon EOS 5 is not compatible with 64 bit version of Windows 7, therefore a virtual installation of Windows XP (32 bit) is needed to use the camera to take scans with the BookDrive Capture software.
This text file: VirtualBookDrive_cheatSheet.txt contains basic instructions on how to run the camera/capture software from within a virtual installation of Windows XP.
