I converted an old overhead projector into a stand by taking off the projector head and adapted the arm and bracket to have a 1/4 inch camera thread mount.

I hooked a Canon Powershot camera to a TV for previewing the document imager output using the camera‚Äôs NTSC video output.

The digital camera was powered off a wall power adapter using a Canon ACK-DC10 AC Adapter Kit.
