Copy Stands and Lights Make Digitizing Images Easy
Copy stands and lights are important tools for photographing objects when you're doing tabletop shooting. With features such as camera arms with adjustable slide mechanisms, you can position your subject perfectly. Some stands are electric, which gives you greater control of speed, and more precision of image capture.
Components of Copy Stands
Photo stands come in a variety of designs, from those with just baseboards and columns, to more robust types with adjustable camera arms and copy lights. Whether you choose a more complicated piece of equipment or not, you can dismantle your copy stand for easy storage or transport. Each component, except for the baseboard, is adjustable, making image capture more precise.
Libraries, historical societies, and archives use copy stands to digitize fragile and delicate objects. Photo copy stands ensure that you can capture images or books realistically. If you're a budding or professional photographer, or you enjoy stop-motion animation, copy stands can take your work to the next level. The camera arm holds your equipment securely in place, copy lights ensure consistent shadowing, and the adjustable camera arm allows you to zoom in or out on your subject.
Copy Stand Lighting Units
There are three types of copy lights available: fluorescent, LED, and incandescent. Fluorescents are bright, regular incandescents are accessible and affordable, and LED lights offer superior efficiency.
