I'm not a great photographer but need to get nice pictures of prints and other artwork that I come across for various reasons
I'm able to get scans now on smaller pieces , as long as the width isn't wider than my current scanner (the kind on a printer/scanner/copier) and using Hugin stitch software, but need something for larger pieces
I was thinking of getting one of those portable, "wand" scanners. anyone have any experience? are the colors accurate? or does anyone have another method for scanner large documents?

fyi - that idea sucked and now I'm out the scanner. decided to go with a "Flip-Pal" instead. much easier to use and takes 600dpi scans. they don't list color depth though, so who knows. will let everyone know how it goes

here's the results... definitely recommended over taking cell phone pics. $80 "flip style" scanner and hugin.sourceforge.net/ stitch software. the stitching is seemless. a little bit of color correction and the difference between this and a $10K flatbed would probably be imperceptible to the naked eye
