A scanner can be considered as a form of digital camera. A scanner works by passing a bright light and an image sensor over a document or photo placed face down on its glass (similar to a photocopier).
Various manufacturers make multi-function printer/scanners, with different features. But they all have the ability to either scan and print, or scan into digital format (which can then be used in different ways).
