Hate to admit it, but I have the AF issue. Going to make a case with Nikon. Any advice?

thank you for the nicely described steps. i do have one question though: you turn the camera to align the left/right focus points on a certain part of the book (in this example's instance the barcode), right?

It would be better to translate the camera on the right or on the left so the sensor is always parallel to the book. And yes, the AF sensor you want to align should be on the bar code. Don't focus and recompose as it would be a huge mistake.

oh, i see what you mean. instead of keeping the camera on the tripod and rotating it left or right to align the focus point, you suggest just moving to either side but still keeping it parallel to the book, right?
