...and basically, the end result would be a digital camera back. The
differences between the cobbled together scanning back and one that's
purpose-built would be resolution, scan speed, and cost. In the end, you'd
probably get what you paid for, but you might also get some unusual images,
like using a Holga camera vs. a good 35mm, or a pinhole vs. a lens.

I think the light in the scanner would be brighter than the image on the
ground glass. You would have to disable the scanning light somehow without
disabling the scannng. If you could do that, it sounds like it would work.
Interesting idea.

&gt;This idea came to me from other forum:
&gt;Would it be possible install flatbed scanner to lergeformat camera´s
&gt;groundglass and use it to &quot;scan&quot; picture?
&gt;It might give new format of expression and act as counterstrike to
&gt;all growing and everannoying digital photography. No matter how it
&gt;is finally printed.
