All models feature a uniquely adjustable camera platform which facilitates the precise alignment of the optical axis of the camera over the exact center of the baseboard. Copy positioning on the 18% grey baseboard is aided by an abundance of baseboard positioning grids, format patterns, and reference scales. Magnetic hold down bars locate the copy and keep it flat in place.
The camera platform moves on a single-straight vertical column, aided by a constant force, counter-balanced elevation system. At the desired elevation, the turn of a knob locks the camera securely in position. The column is anchored to the 16″x19″ baseboard at four points and is suitable for cameras weighing up to five pounds. The maximum recommended copy size is 14″x14″.
The Copystand emulates the rigid twin E-Channel center braced column so popular in the 45 V-XL enlarger chassis. A rack and pinion elevation system positions your still digital or video camera where it can be easily locked into position. The 44″ column is securely mounted to a 22″x22″ baseboard and is suitable for camera weighing up to 16 pounds. The maximum recommended copy size is 20″x20″.
