The Flip Pal lightweight scanners are just 4x6 inches, and convenient to keep on your desk, put in a drawer, or slip into a briefcase or bag. They run on 4 AA batteries, and can scan files, documents, or periodicals of any size. You can scan small pictures or other items (up to 4X6 inches) directly by putting them on the screen and closing the cover, or you can scan larger items in sections by removing the cover and flipping the screen so it is on top of the item (see pictures at right and below). They work by scanning sections of the document and "stitching" the sections together seamlessly on your PC or laptop with built-in software on the SD memory card that comes with the scanner. No expertise is required by the operator: you get a single file which you can download to your hard drive like a digital photo. A built in LCD screen shows you what you have scanned. These scanners are handy for genealogists, researchers and scrapbookers.
The Flip Pal Mobile Scanner and accessories are available for purchase from FxGS.
