Thread: Sinar Norma Copy Stand

    Re: Sinar Norma Copy Stand

    My requirements are a bit different, largest flat art will only be about 16x20. So not only do I want to move in the Broncolor polarized lights for classic copying, but also reconfigure things so that I can photograph a small tabletop set, anything from directly above, really. And room to bring whatever lighting in various ways, to do what I should need to achieve my objective. I have a lot of Broncolor and FOBA accessories that help with all of that. It's quite a system for still life.

    Don't have room for a biggest 8x10 Durst as I have lots of experience with those, don't think one could fit into my plans. But I do have a 5x7 Omega "E" autofocus in my darkroom. And two 4x5 "DII" which I do use. 8x10 I contact print

    This stuff can be hard to find, but I think I know how and where to look. Repurposing what I already have is a priority.

    I do have a Plaubel Camera Stand that is similar to the ones from FOBA. I paid $100 for it many years ago and I'm happy happy. It's in use on a concrete floor and needs no additional bracing.

    Sure wish I had one or two of these Balloons when I was shooting 4x5 interiors for architect friends. They didn't exist back then.

    This is one of it's primary uses, as an overall fill light. In fact I am going to use it 45 left of subject when shooting full length portraits. Lights a big set.

    And, I can use it for tabletop :smile: Here I have attached it by FOBA Combitube to the DIMIL Sweep Table next to the Overhead Shooting Table.

    Happy Happy.

    The Hasselblad Ringlight works great on the 5x7 Norma. The Norman 200B Power Pack was modified by New York City Flash Clinic. They were famous in the photo district, all the fashion Guys were using this. If they didn't adjust the pack, the tube would "sparkle" wildly after firing. I sent in two packs for modding. Sadly they are gone
