The Beseler CS Digital/Photo-Video Copy Stand has an updated counterbalance and is suitable for cameras and digital backs weighing up to 16 lb. The enhanced CS Digital/Photo Video Copy Stand emulates the rigid twin E-channel centerbraced column so popular in the 45V-XL enlarger chassis design. A rack and pinion elevation system positions your still, digital or video camera where it can be easily locked into position. Three axis, lateral adjustments and alignments are easily made using the camera platform bracket. The 44" tall column is securely mounted to a 22 x 28" (559 x 711 mm) baseboard. Maximum recommended copy is 20 x 20" (508 x 508 mm).

    Beseler 4211-02 Reviews

    CS Digital/Photo-Video Copy Stand is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good column, ok base board The column and camera attachment mechanism are excellent and can support up to 15 lbs or so. The head can be locked in place at any position on the column. The camera position can be adjusted relative to the column, easily and securely. I have a Kaiser and used 2 other types of copy stands. The Beseler column is the best I have worked with. The baseboard design, however, is not great. The baseboard is constructed of a particle board center with plastic laminate over most surfaces and a metal plate on top. The column attaches to the board is through 5 predrilled holes. When you flip the board over and examine the predrilled holes from the bottom, the particle board is exposed. When you tighten the bolts/nuts that hold the column to the board, the particle board material compresses. I could not get the column completely locked down due to damage to the particle board - there was unacceptable movement in the column. The fix was easy - I found two pieces of thin aluminum plate. I drilled holes to match those of the board/column and placed 1 plate on top directly under the column and the other plate on the bottom under the board. With longer bolts and better nuts the column is now securely locked down and will not move. Is going through this modification worth it? For me, I needed to support 12-14 lbs of camera gear on the column, and the Beseler column is excellent. So for me it was worth it. If you only need to support 9 or fewer pounds, the Kaiser (R1) might be a better choice but costs a bit more. I normally purchase the best product or the product that best meets my needs, no matter it is manufactured. We live in a truly global world and American protectionist business practices (Made in the USA) are way out of date. For the most part regarding copy stands, German engineering wins (Kaiser). However, my needs regarding support and the column outweighed the inferior design of the baseboard and so I purchased the beseler and changed the design.

    This copy stand requires an adapter for digital SLRS. Where do I find this adapter?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I was surprised to find out that the included mounting bolt was in fact too long to attach a camera without a spacer of some kind. The threads fit a standard camera tripod mount, but it's just too long to pull the camera least all of the cameras I have. I've since added a quick release plate that allows me to easily attach/remove cameras. That fixed it, but it was a little frustrating at first.

    Our Museum purchased the Beseler CS Digital/Photo-Video Copy Stand Model 4211 from B&H. We tried to attach a digital SLR camera or 35mm to it but the camera attachment screw is too long (much longer than the CS14 screw). The instructions mention that some cameras require an adapter. What is this adapter called and where can we get it?
