am very happy with my old epson perfection scanner,

but i need to scan bigger documents and pictures,

is there such a thing as a low priced A3 scanner, everything seems to be high end, my requirements are pretty much for Scanning images in to use on the web and scanning images in and saving as higher resolution files to keep in my private library for possible future print publication.

any experiences pointers appreciated

I'm rather fond of my Epson as well... but haven't had much experience with larger models.

(Hopefully here in the Graphics forum, someone will happen along who's got a wider range of scanner experience than the FOOites seemed to...)

Here is some information on pricing comparisons for a bunch of different a3 scanners. I think you will find that pricing is quite high when you get into the a3 arena.

Ouch!

My GF is the scanner user around here. She scans large documents in multiple parts, then stitches them together in Photoshop. It can be an option for light usage.

For the rare documents that can't be scanned, such as textured oil paintings and such, we use a digital camera.
