I am looking for an inexpensive way to scan or photograph plans to be sent via email.
Currently I have an associate who sends me photographs of redline plans for changes. She has to take multiple pictures of each page and email them all to me. We are looking for some more automated method. Wide format scanners are way too expensive so I was thinking of some sort of contraption that would hold a camera steady so a full sheet could be photographed without getting blurry.
I have also heard of cameras that will automatically email images so that would be great too.
What I want to do is create a setup where you have a camera that will remain mounted in some sort of tripod or some other device. You place a page under it, push a button, and the camera takes an image and emails it. Space is limited in her office so this would need to be something that took up very little space.
Does anyone have experience in setting up something like this or have you heard of doing this?
