Digital camera archiving + Greenstone

Subject Digital camera archiving + Greenstone

I just discovered the Greenstone system and have a question about its applicability
in my particular circumstance. I am looking to digitize around 20000 pages of
material with a 2 megapixel digital camera. The raw output format is JPEG.
>From what I understand 2 megapixels is not quite sufficient for OCR purposes,
so I will NOT be using OCR.

I was wondering if Greenstone is suitable for this purpose - digitzing 20000
text pages without OCR. I am aware that I will not be able to search the texts.
This is fine with me. Is Greenstone a good tool for working with 20000 digitized
images of text pages? Are there any tips about how to use Greenstone in the
most effective way when dealing with images of text?

Thanks for any advice.
