Oops, hit the wrong button.  It's here:

That's the small version, anyway.  Got a little more glare on the 
display than I wanted, but I still like it better than the one picture 
of the DR-135T that EVERYONE uses.

I've got a couple of small light stands and a light tent that helps 
diffuse the illumination.  It's really not hard to get decent results. 
Getting really GOOD results still takes some time and effort, though.  I 
still like my picture of the old OT1 rev 3:

All of the touch up in Photoshop is tedious, though, and I still missed 
some things.

Anyway, just use a tripod, watch your lighting, and take about 10 times 
more pictures from different angles and distances then you think you 
need.  I don't know what I'd do without digital photography.
