I can't agree that it is straightforward, unless you only want rough
results. Most scanners now have no good solid edge to align the sleeve
against, and if your two halves are a degree or so out, there is major
fiddling to do.
Also, even with auto-density set to OFF, it is still usual to find that
the edges do not quite match in tone.
However, I would rather use an A3 (almost big enough) scanner than a
camera on a tripod. But an A4 scanner would be really hard work.
