At the recent RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City, the busiest booth in the exhibits hall usually was at the company selling a one-and-a-half-pound battery-operated scanner called the Flip-Pal. This scans up to 4-inch-by-6-inch photographs or documents. In fact, you can scan larger photos and documents by making multiple scans. The included software for Windows and Macintosh will automatically "stitch" the images together into one.The scanner doesn't even need an attached computer when scanning. The images are stored on a tiny SecureDigital memory card which can then be later removed and inserted into or connected to your computer for processing. The included memory card stores hundreds of images. If you carry a pocket full of Secure Digital cards, you could scan thousands of images, then process them later.
And, yes, I bought one of these scanners. I love it!
