  • Patent number: 6744541
    Abstract: An scanning apparatus for scanning both of a reflective object and a transparent object is disclosed. The scanning apparatus moves the position of the image-retrieving device to switch the work position of the lens in the image-retrieving device. Therefore, the lens can form the image of the reflective object on the image-detecting device while its work position is on the reflective object. On the other hand, the lens can form the image of the transparent object on the image-detecting device while its work position is on the transparent object.

  • Patent number: 6709120
    Abstract: A flash unit for a camera comprises a bracket, a reflecting member, two fixed members and a flash emission tube. The bracket is disposed inside the camera, and the reflecting member is disposed inside the bracket. The fixed members are integrally formed on the bracket, and the flash emission tube is fixedly disposed inside the bracket by the fixed members. By integrally forming the fixed members on the bracket, the conventional rubber band for fixing the emission tube can be replaced. Since the number of the consisting elements of the flash unit are thereby reduced, its cost can also be reduced. In addition, assembly time can also be reduced.
