I was able to get my hands on the [very last ?] ION book saver from the Netherlands yesterday. The unit works OK, but one of the cameras is slightly out of focus. Upon reviewing the central-housing's electronics, it appears one can get to the cameras; and dare I say, adjust them for better focus?

I am going to review the hardware and see if this is feasible. If I can get the 2nd camera into good focus, then I believe this unit will serve the purpose of getting me raw page scan information to go from OCR to MOBI, for enabling Kindle text-to-speech.
If these cameras are fixed without any focal adjustment possibilities, I will just return the unit since it would not serve anyone to scan a book like this; for OCR or anything else.
