Portable Scanner Recommendations?
Posted 24 May 2011 - 05:59 PM
Other than the Flip Pal, discussions on scanners seemed quite dated and technology changes so quickly. I think the wand-style scanners look like it might be difficult to get a good image, especially since my severe Fibromyalgia means that my hands often shake a bit. That makes the Flip Pal or similar "mini-flatbed" scanners more appealing. A quick search on Amazon.com shows a number of non-wand options, some significantly less expensive. I look forward to hearing everyone's input!

It's small and scans to 600 dpi Jpeg image. I have model PANSCN04. It's worked wonderfully for me, but does not have some of the nice features of the flip pal as it has to be plugged in and only scans paper up to 5x7. It also doesn't show what you are scanning, but you have to put the SD card into your computer to see what you've got.
That said, however I love it and have used it a lot!

Thanks, ladies. I have the less expensive Flip camcorder and like it. As noted in the subject line, the Flip Pal is definitely intriguing. I was just wondering if anyone has something else and what motivated them to choose an option other than the Flip Pal.

Honestly, I hadn't even thought about the possiblities of doing this before the Flip-Scan and I didn't look into it further once I discovered Flip-Pal but I think it would be awesome for scanning pages as you are talking about.......It's so handy - so small and easy to just keep right beside you - and given that it's battery operated, I LOVE it! The price is right and it scans to a card as well which I personally like because then I can save it to my laptop or my IPad or anywhere I want.

I don't have my Flip-Pal yet...maybe it will be here tomorrow and I can report back! I like your idea to keep the "paper mess" in check. GREAT idea!!
