The Smith-Victor 36″ Pro-Duty Copy Stand Kit provides a complete professional system for photographing fingerprints and other exhibits. The sturdy baseboard features a non-reflective 18% gray matte finish that measures 17 5/8”x17 5/8” . The 42" model has a base that measures 23.5×23.5. The column is constructed of heavy duty extruded aluminum and is designed to be low-vibration which is critical for the sharpest images possible. The column also features a height scale printed on the anodized aluminum.
The copy stand has a unique carriage system – no cranks or tightening of knobs needed. Simply squeeze the lever and the carriage can be slid up or down smoothly and quickly. Release the lever and the carriage will stop and lock at the desired, securing the camera for use. The carriage has a standard ¼ 20 mount to accept any camera and lens combination up to 8 lbs.
For perfect illumination, the kit includes two fully adjustable mounting arms and two compact flat panel LED lights. The LED lights provide high output, smooth and even illumination across the baseboard and with a CRI of 95, they ensure that the color rendition of the copies will be accurate to the originals. The LED panel lights also are energy efficient and low heat so delicate originals are safe from heat damage caused by traditional incandescent lights.
