From:Abizar Lakdawalla <>

If you have a flat bed scanner (cost $30-100) you can use it very
effectively as a microphotography set up. Place your small specimen on the
flat bed and scan, most scanners have a depth of field of at least a few cm
and produce extremely sharp images of three dimensional objects.
