The Bencher Copymate II Fluorescent Tabletop Producer is a versatile system ideal for anyone using 35mm or lightweight video cameras weighing up to 3.5 lbs. (1.6kg). This version of the user friendly Copymate II features a rigid 3 foot aluminum column, camera carriage, sidelight arms and two 36-watt 5200K lights (daylight rated).

A unique dual brake locking system eliminates lateral carriage shift assuring precise positioning of the camera carriage. The camera carriage features two machined steel shafts with a 3.5" front-to-back travel which allow easy centering of the camera lens over the baseboard. Column and Carriage come with mounting bolts and washer plate. Sidelight arms are mounted at the rear of the baseboard so oversized originals can be positioned with no interference.

A light intensity control (usable only on Bencher Cat. #s 90020, 90030 and 90050, 90060) is included for reducing heat, energy expense and increasing lamp life.

A full range of accessories is available for the Copymate II including, light baffles, polarizing filters, and book and copy hold-down easels. The Copymate II Fluorescent Tabletop Copystand provides the basics for in-house and on-location use.

      Comments about Bencher Copymate II Fluorescent Tabletop Producer (110-240V):

      I was a bit hesitant to spend this much on a copy stand, but as I needed it to look professional to demonstrate some computer vision equipment, I went for it.

      The Head is very easy to move with it's spring supported roller mechanism, and looks like it can carry a lot of weight (in fact I have a large lcd monitor sitting on top of it right now!)

      The lights provide a very bright and even light. The lights are probably the biggest problem, in that they aren't adjustable in brightness, and you can only tilt them on one axis. So far not a problem for me.

        Comments about Bencher Copymate II Fluorescent Tabletop Producer (110-240V):

        I use this copy stand with a Canon EOS 7D and the camera mounts solidly. The vertical and horizontal slide is smooth and fast, locking in place with a turn of a set screw. The fluorescent lights are more than adequate for my work. The control box mounts under the table with two velcro strips which I wasn't too impressed with, but a minor detail in an overall good product.

            Comments about Bencher Copymate II Fluorescent Tabletop Producer (110-240V):

            The Bencher Copymate II came together very quickly out of the box. I did not read the instructions but was still able to have it fully assembled in under 30 minutes. Clicking the fluorescent tubes into the lamp sockets was the only real challenge but once done, all worked well. Adjustments for camera positions are both simple and intuitive. The solid construction suggests that this unit is built to last forever. I like the fact that magnetic strips are included to hold paper on the easel if desired. Some day I'll bet we will have an LED light version of this but for now, this is the best copy stand I know of for the money.
