Equipment

The society has a range of photographic equipment which is free to use by any of our members. If you want to use any equipment please let us know by email or talk to any of the committee at a meeting.

Scanner

Our scanner is an Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner.

The scanner supports all common film formats from 35mm film up to 4 x 5″ transparencies. The Perfection V700 Photo offers outstanding performance at 6400 x 9600 dpi. The Digital ICE Technology automatically removes surface defects such as scratches, dust and dirt particles from both film and photos.

Updated drivers and software for the scanner can be downloaded from the Epson website.

Mount Cutter

We have a mount cutter available for those wishing to prepare prints for competition, exhibitions and framing. To use the mount cutter you will need to provide blades, these can be purchased from the Society at a minimal cost of a couple of pounds. We estimate that a single blade will last for perhaps four mounts.

Please note that due to the popularity of the mount cutter around competition time it’s worth using the cutter well in advance of competition deadlines.

Spyder

We have a Spyder colour calibrator. The Spyder is used to give you consistant and accurate colour throughout your digital workflow.

If you have any ideas of what equipment you think will be useful for the Society to supply in the future then please let us know.
