Individual photographers and institutions are struggling with large film archives that require digitizing. Digital cameras can fill an important gap in the scanning environment, enabling large collections to be scanned on-site with low-cost equipment and easily-trained operators. Digital camera scans can now produce very high-quality images, suitable for nearly any kind of reproduction. This paper will discuss the issues surrounding implementation of camera scanning systems, including scan quality, hardware, software and workflow considerations.

In addition to an outline of the technical processes, this paper will discuss how the dramatic cost reductions provided by camera scanning shifts the resource allocation in the workflow, repositioning highest-skilled work from the start of the workflow to the end.
