I only have a camera, and it's not easy or very effective. I would think a scanner might get the details better.

There is a long thread ATS that describes scanner settings to get the best picture of currency, and a scanner's benefits over a camera. I believe the people that are serious about paper money all use scanners.

To take clear images of your notes, scanning is the way to go.

 

Both of the below images were made with an inexpensive Canon flatbed scanner:

For detailed, step-by-step instruction on scanning notes, you can follow the below link to John's scanning tutorial on my site.
