Last fall the Digital Production Unit purchased some photographic equipment to supplement our growing production output. We have identified a need for more portable camera setup that can also give us the ability to shoot larger items.
The camera equipment includes:
Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera (Body Only)
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens
Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit
Other supporting equipment includes:
Oben AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117
Manfrotto Auto Pole- A set of Two Black -1382956
Manfrotto Super Clamp W/Standard Stud -1382900
Manfrotto U Hook Crossbar Holder-1382902P
Manfrotto Telescopic Crossbar
Manfrotto 032BASEB Single Base for Autopole, Black
This setup gives us much more flexibility to shoot in other locations in the library when materials may not be as portable as the camera equipment. We have also been looking for a way to shoot materials like maps or posters that are too large for the copy stand on our reprographic system. This will give us a solution to that problem. As always, if you would like more information about the Digital Production Unit or if you would like to visit Baker Rm.2 and see our setup, please contact Bill Ghezzi or Ryland Ianelli.
