[][] how to make the scanner camera

ごめんなさいもうflickrのほうは追えてません。

ところで、どうやってつくるの? っていう問い合わせがあまりに多いのでhowToを作ってみた。

明らかに僕は英語できないので、英語の全般的書き直ししてくれる人がもしいたらお願いします。

this article is scanner camera making how to.

Remind: Please don't send me a direct e-mail about "how to made it?".

i'm not a professional. just for fun. please understand.

i think the Most important thing for making this camera is a brave of to disassemble a unknown new $100 scanner :)


step 1: disassemble scanner

First, disassemble scanner carefully. main module , stepping motor and CCD module.

GT-S620 is a very simple scanner.

My scanner camera doesn't use a light module. Each module is connected by cable.

step 2: build Rails

to slide CCD module correctly, build Rails which using two shaft.

and base plastic board is set on Rail. CCD module is set on the board.

Rail position quality is very important.

step 3: connect Gear

CCD module size is approximately 1/5 scale of A4 paper size.

Of course, Gear ratio should set 1/5. you may need custom Gear.

step 4: set plastic bar for position senser

epson scanner has optical(?) senser for checking senser position. there is side of main module.

also scanner camera needs a plastic bar. In case of my scanner cam, it's set under CCD module.

when CCD sensor is home position, plastic bar should touch a optical senser.

step 5: set LED lights

scanner checks light works correctly when start scanning. if CCD can't get a light at initializing time, scanner indicates error.

also in case of scanner camera, LED Lights is needed when begining scan. But it immediately should turn off when sensor start moving. because of this is a camera :)

I set three white LED lights beside start position of CCD.

how to controll LED On/Off? My cam's On/Off "gimmick" is like a train power supply. Power code slides with CCD module on a shaft. Part of shaft is covered with vinyl tape.

The tape position controlls power on, or off.

step 6: set Lens

Any Lens can use as you like. but frange back length and mount angle is very important. and you may need a IR/UV cut filter to get correct color.

step 7:Battery

if you want to use the camera on outdoor, Bettery is required.

I use DC/DC converter and 006P battery. just connect them.

daviddavid 2009/06/12 09:04 Thank you for posting this! I don't doubt that many people will soon be copying your design - myself included!

raspy(spyuge)raspy(spyuge) 2009/06/12 09:52 thanks. i hope your successful.

JimJim 2009/06/12 23:52 Wow!very cool project and amazing photos you could get from it. It impressed me a lot (@_@)
I see that you like making electronic things. I noticed your cabinet-less speaker project too. May I ask....how is their sound? I imagine they sound different than regular box speakers.
By the way...are you in Osaka?

raspyraspy 2009/06/13 12:47 thanks. I'm in Tokyo.
My loudspeaker sound is very clear, it has mild treble and very tight bass.
but it needs pre-equalizing.
i made a custom plug-in of Foobar2000(music player) for this speaker.

I have Verity Audio's Fidelio, but i like my DIY speaker sound than Fidelio's.
(of course, Fidelio is very good speaker,too)

ameyukiameyuki 2009/06/15 15:26 ぜひとも日本語もお願いします。

raspyraspy 2009/06/15 16:21 今までの日本語記事とこの記事の写真で、英語以上の情報量はあるので、それでお願いします。

JimJim 2009/06/15 17:08 thanks for your reply Raspy. I am sure they must sound great.
If a different cross-over setup is used inside the speaker, would it help to EQ at all?
Or you have already used the cross-over that is most suitable for them?
I was hoping that you may live in Osaka. I live in Osaka but I have trouble to meet people like you. So I dont have chance to to talk about art and technology with anyone. Usually people start to run away when I start talking about geeky creative things.
I am interested in Digital Art(Sound and Visual), electronics and making, modifying and customizing electronic things.
If you ever come to Osaka again, it would be fun to chat.
By the way, your English is good. Keep it up.

raspyraspy 2009/06/16 11:50 thanks Jim, i think my english skill is poor..

my speaker uses a normal electric crossover.
3rd-order (tweeter-midrange), and 1st-order(midrange-woofer).

My wife born in Osaka ;)
