I don't but was wondering if maybe a scanner printer might be what you
want. You could scan the image, and print your copy right there. But you'd
probably still need a computer. Lots of our stores here offer digital
scanning and printing on site. It's fairly cheap and you can make any size
copy you want. And shop while you are doing it. <G> Been looking at the
T5 too. Man are they nice. But for a little more you can get a laptop
here. (Alabama) But then you'd still have to buy the scanner.

Subject: [TMG] OT- 'mobile scanning'

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a small flat bed scanner which
I could take with me when visiting distant cousins to enable me to scan
their photos and documents in situ? Preferably it would have its own memory,
so that I would not have to take a PC with me (I do not have a
lap-top/notebook). I know there are very small hand held scanners that could
be used, but these require the results to be 'stitched together', and
beside, they still require a PC attached. I have tried using a normal
digital camera, with rather mixed results. When it may be my only chance to
access the photos I would prefer to get it right first time.
If there is no such thing as a 'memory enabled scanner', I did wonder if it
is possible to send a scan to a PDA. Although I currently do not have a PDA
either, I am considering one - possibly the Palm Tungsten T5 - which is
cheaper than a laptop, but could still hold my TMG data.
Any ideas anyone? Oh, and it would need to be available in the UK.
