Camera import vs. flat scanner
#1
I have not even tried MSP's camera import features yet, but I'm looking for user impressions. I have maybe 100 fakebooks that I'd prefer not to tear apart and take somewhere for high-speed scanning (I'm too cheap). I have a HP 3-in-1 that works for my scanning generally and I've been using 300dpi grayscale for sheet music that I later edit manually in Paint.NET (a superb simple free Windows application) for de-skewing, rip repairing, tightening, editing, and cropping. But scanning on a simple 3-in-1 is SLOW!!!! and I'm getting old. Does anyone think I might be able to get decent editable images faster by using my Surface Pro 7's rear camera, whether within MSP or otherwise? I've been assuming that getting the image flat is easier on a flatbed scanner, but if users have had a good experience with camera import, I'd like to hear about it now. Is there any easy way to get the photo'd image out of MSP for my own pre-processing?

Anyone who wants to chime in with the suggestion that I just left them rip up my books, high-speed scan everthing, and then maybe re-bind the books using plastic coils is welcome to do so. Perhaps you could give me a hint as to the best places to go and how much I'm likely going to have to pay for that.

Thanks.
