[sane-devel] Orbital Scanners?

Hi All,

I"m looking for a portable scanner (that is, which fits in a small bag).  There is a class of scanners called `orbital' or `planetary' scanners, which are basically a digital camera mounted a pedestal. You place the document on a flat tray and take a photo (scan). There are almost no moving parts (as opposed to drum scanners) and it's possible to scan books (no need to have loose pages).

Has anyone had experience with such scanners and can recommend a portable model, ideally compatible with SANE?.
