[font color=\'#000000\']As I am now reading that digital cameras are much "cleaner" (in every way, not just the absence of dust) than scans, I was wondering what anybody thinks about digitally archiving black and white and even color prints (not film material) by using one of the high end digital SLR cameras with a macro lens and using a copy stand with lights setup?
Do I have to use a macro lens on cameras with a magnification ratio, as I don't have to worry about the edges of the lens? Is such a lens still "flat field" enough?
I also think that this method will be much faster than scanning.
Thanks for any feedback.[/font]
