The image quality is second to none, giving a full output of 60.5 million pixels. Each RAW image alone is around 60mb, which is then processed to around 100mb for use in the image collection.
The images are captured using either a copy stand set up with 2 Multiblitz Xenolux 1000 flash heads, or a Traveller’s Conservation Cradle, which is specially designed and built specifically for this type of digitisation work.
