Any tips for the best scanner on the market these days for scanning both modern glossy issues & the older paper only programmes?

I use a Canon LIDE 120, had it about 3 years, does a good job but there may be better out there

I have the LIDE 60, brought it cheap last year, it looks rather dated

If it works, does it matter what it looks like? Confused

I use a camera scanner, rather than scanning it takes photos from a fixed position, the quailty is down to how expensive the camera, but for bulk scanning/photos it's perfect, I'm currently doing batches of 33 programmes a day in less than 5 minutes

For reference I'm currently using a Ipevo VZ-1 HD VGA/USB Dual Mode Document Camera

Was really cheap on ebay so thought I would give it a try (£34 as it happens) about 3 and a hlaf years ago. There are far better on the market, but for programme scans and speed of use this suits me down to the ground

No it does the job, but some scans look rather flecky, if thats a word
