I've captured whiteboard images a number of times with great success using
two pictures.  Set the camera on a tripod, take the first picture, erase the
board, then take the second picture with the same lighting and the camera in
the same position.  A little image subtraction and scaling with existing
image manipulation programs and you get a very nice copy of the whiteboard
