feel free to replace them once you have your second copy

I'll be deleting some of those scans before that. You need to check the quality before uploading them...

I know it is painful to debind artbooks, but you can't get decent scans without doing so.

I don't debind mine.
There are techniques for scanning without debinding but it will never be as good as removing the pages.

The only difference would be more of the picture would be scanned and less work touching up the binding side of the scan. Other than that there shouldn't be anything else other than the scanners ability and the scanner itself. But your right, debinding eliminates the above.
You could always get a overhead scanner ^^. I've been trying to find some in retail, nope found none even at Fry's which is quite good at keeping harder to find items.

I stuck this Chronicles Hiro Suzuhira into my Amazon.jp shopping cart too. Since this is her first retail artbook ^^.

ps:Ya should see Mutsumi Sasaki's new illustration book, Est
usually i don't debind stuff simply because of a money factor. If i had a job i wouldn't have minded to buy 2 copies and debind 1 of them but as i am now..can't buy 2 copies, thus no debind >_>;.

Those overhead ones I was looking at were in the $10G range. Not for your daily scanner. Made for museums and other institutions.
I'll probably start debinding/scanning this on the weekend I figured since I have to pull out the poster I might as well debind the whole book :3

Have you read about those little mounts to put your digital cameras on for a over head scanner like shot? I though that was a pretty neat idea. But of course you need a good camera to even do that.

No, but that sounds like a good idea if you can keep any glare off glossy pictures. I'll have to have a look to see if it's practical :)

I was going to do something like that
sounds complicated >_>;, and i haven't see yet a finished scan with that method on that site.
I don't get the benefit of doing it that way. The pages will still be bent--more, I'd think, since with a bed scanner it should be a lot easier to flatten the pages as much as the binding allows. I guess it'd be easier to keep the bent area in focus.

Something like the OpticBook scanner still seems like the best approach. Do you know if the filtering it was doing (that seemed to be dulling colors) can be disabled? That seemed like the main problem with its output, and I'd think that wouldn't be needed if it can scan to the edge of the bed.

I still cannot find the price of this dam scanner. The brochure doesn't show much other than the features of it.

I agree with peto, no doubt it's that expensive. I did a quick search and every place I went to didn't have a price and had a quote request link. I'm not about to part with that much personal information over a quote.
