RE: Sorry to ask again but...

I was going to point out that in one issue of Post Factory Journal, Carmen
Lazardo did a self portrait using her flatbet scanner.

Additionally, several photographers have made scanner top still lifes by
placing objects on their scanner platen.

Of course the issue is DOF for film scans which maybe quite a bit less than
document scanners.

A few years ago, I did a series of scanned self portraits (my face, not 
the, er, other end!). The depth of field with my Microtek Scanmaker 4 
was considerable. Also, I know 3 or 4 photographers in this area 
(Atlanta) who are scanning compositions of flowers, and getting stunning 
results with various scanners. I think many scanners do typically have 
good depth of field.
