Can I still use camera copy?

Can I Use Camera Copy?

Today, most printers have scanners that will scan in excess of 30 pages per minute. A 320-page self published book takes about 10 minutes to scan. In short, it's no big deal. Remember that scanning your laser copy puts the final printing another generation away from the original in quality but, for straight text with no halftones (pictures) or screened graphics, few people will know the difference. If you are leaning to do a book layout design suggest, I suggest that you go out and buy a ream of really good paper, set your printer to as high a dpi as possible, and give it a whirl. It never hurts to try!
