    Imago 1:1 Question

    Greetings everyone,

    I recently found out about the full body IMAGO 1:1 camera/system.

    Wikipedia says they use 6 strobe lights.

    Does anyone know what strobes or what power they used to be able to get a proper exposure with their direct positive paper?

    I'm interested in direct positive but not sure if the amount of light is dangerous to a subject (not sure how IMAGO does it with out hurting eyes).

    For example, I know people use Speedotron Black Line 105 heads at 9600ws for portraits in tintype.
    If one were to use two of these heads but through a large umbrella, would the diffused light help to avoid eye damage (temporary or long term)?

    Thanks so much in advance for any help/direction/advice!
    Be well!

    Best Regards,
    Kevin H.
