Well I do notice they're not using a flash. I'm more interested in
scanning a lot of photos at once without having to do much work. I've
been using a Lexmark (that doesn't work with Linux) for this, but I
don't really like the quality of the all-in-one printer scanners. I
can't seem to find a good solution for this that's reasonably priced.
