We are going to use the 6100 for a presentation and some of the functions with the photo-mosaic do have an immediate "wow" factor for the client.
Yes there is no integrated digital camera with the HDS6100. You can however use an external digital camera that fits on the the tribrach and has the lens positioned in the exact same location as the nodal point of the scanner. To do this you will need to buy a nodal ninja (http://www.nodalninja.com
), a decent 10-12mp camera with a fish eye lens. Leica has a psf fact sheet with all this information on. Just search this forum for more information.

Again search this forum for loads of top tips when using this scanner.
