I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but I find the idea of taking pictures of moleskine pages really, really clunky. I have done that in the past to take photos of book/magazine pages, and in my experience the picture almost always comes out low quality - a combination of blur, contrast, the curvature of the page and flash reflecting off the paper makes it very difficult to read later. I can only imagine what types of problems these factors will cause for Evernote's hand-writing recognition program. After all, software can optimize image quality only so much.

The Moleskine is supposed to lie very flat and the paper isn't shiny. Those both improve the focus, too. The lines are supposed to help remove skew, too.

It should be a lot better than a photo of a book, and much much better than a magazine.
