Product News: High-Grade Macro-Photography Made Easy: Macro –Workstation for ProgRes® Cameras

26 Jan 2007

Launched at the beginning of November, the new image documentation system is easy to operate and captures images of superior quality.
Equipped with a first-class macro zoom objective lens, the system records objects of 6 x 4 mm² to 40 x 30 cm², producing fully sized pictures and exceeding even stereo microscopes in terms of the image field size. Its working distance ranges from 14 cm to 90 cm with a zoom ratio of 6:1. Ergonomic manual levers are provided for precision alignment of the objective lens.

The stand consists of an extremely low-vibration guiding column with a manual friction drive and weight compensation. Its robust base plate of 45 x 50 cm² is adequately sized to accommodate greater photographic objects, too.

Convenience in working with ProgRes® cameras and image capturing software
The macro workstation may be combined with any ProgRes® camera model. Specially recommended selections are the ProgRes® CF scan and the C14 plus model with an image resolution up to 12.5 mega pixels. Its microscanning technique facilitates preview and detail images with identical setting of the stand and the objective lens.

ProgRes® Capture software displays a live image on the monitor and provides automatic image setting and image saving functionality. A shot can conveniently be triggered, using a foot switch. These features warrant an expeditious workflow, because your hands remain free for positioning of photographic objects.

A complete system for multiple applications
The macro workstation provides an attractive tool in applications where macroscopic objects must be reliably documented with adequate precision in detail. Besides forensic and pathologic jobs, these applications include quality control, incoming goods inspection and the field of reprography. Jenoptik’s macro workstation offers a complete solution to address all these application needs with a system of excellent price-performance ratio.
