Scanner Camera color

If you could synchronize a tri-color set of filters with the RGB set of LEDs in the Canon Canoscan scanner, you could produce color images with a single scan of the diy scanner cameras out there.

I was just looking at your flatbed camera... and was wondering if it worked even with the scanner lamp on during the scanning. Is it essentially just a scanner in a light tight box and a lens or did you modify the scanner?

I'm interested :)

The lamp stays on. It causes me problems with it on, it causes problems when it is off. A big difference is with the lamp on I have problems when the light is lower than cloudy daylight outdoors.

I did modify the housing of the sensor extensively and removed the pinhole array above the sensor.
