Better Light 6000E-HS Digital Scanning Back

Work with your existing 4x5 view camera and lenses in the studio, on location or on a copy stand. Focus and compose normally on the ground glass and insert the Better Light scan back just like a film holder. After a 16-bit prescan is made preview the image using the included software on the computer monitor. This allows you to optimize conditions for the best shot before you capture it.Use any continuous light source such as, daylight, fluorescent, HID, HMI or tungsten. Line-frequency flicker rejection even allows the use of standard magnetic-ballast fluorescent or HMI lights.The E-models are newly manufactured scan backs with only the tri-linear CCD and the video PC board as recycled components from owners' upgraded units. The E-models have all of the same features as the previous model 4000 and 6000 scan backs: resolution settings are independent of ISO; the sensitivity range is 100 Ð 1600 ISO, adjustable in 1/10 f-stop increments; a dedicated hard drive for image storage; fast prescans generated in as little as eight seconds and both cameras include camera control software.Eight resolution settings up to 6000 x 8000(137MB RGB)Capture 137MB color images in as little as 66 secondsAdjustable ISO sensitivity from 100 to 1600 (daylight)Triple 12-bit ADCs N up to 82 million pixels per minute9GB internal disk drive for offline image captureKodak trilinear color CCD technologySingle-pass color or monochrome scanning50/60Hz line-frequency flicker rejectionLine exposure time selectable from 1/8 to 1/120 secondContinuously adjustable color balance in 0.1 CC steps11 f-stop dynamic range14-bit data path & lookup tablesSave 8 or 16 bits per color (24 or 48-bit color images)Flawless resolution reductions without aliasingFractional-pixel averaging always uses all CCD dataScan area 72 x 96mm (2.83" x 3.78"); 120mm diagonalInsert weight 0.96kg (34 oz.)4.6m (15') cable from insert to control unitSCSI-2 interface from control unit to host computerCompact control unit includes disk drive and AC supplyFlash memory for easy upgrades without opening unitUniversal AC input 90-260 VAC, 50/60Hz
