Default Book / magazine scanner

Has any member here had any experience with the newer type scanners - these are basically a camera on a tripod - they are meant to be very fast but i am wondering about (1, picture quality (2, what the software has to offer with regard to image manipulation ie. gamma / contrast etc.
I have a formidable collection of mags and smaller British pocket mags from the 60's - 70's and using the V700 is... shall we say a little slow and tedious - however there is great image control with the software that balances the good and bad - thanks

I was thinking about buying something like that, but decided against it. I am afraid the quality is not very good.

I am still planning to build a simple low cost version of this: https://www.diybookscanner.org/

And I bought a repo stand from infuu:

It is used to photograph documents, because it is quicker than scanning.
To use it for books I still need:
  • good lighting
  • something to hold down or flatten the pages, like a glass plate

I scan the hardcover book "Das Playmatebuch" using a flatbed scanner.

deadlock99 might have some experience, he is photographing magazines. I would be interested in what equipment he uses.
