Welcome to the new world of film scanning with Crowley’s StillShot Film Copy Stand. Utilized for over a decade in Crowley’s Digitization Service Bureau, the StillShot is a reliable and adaptable camera stand solution crafted to cater to the requirements of archival film digitization. Whether you’re a professional photographer, archivist, or simply an enthusiast looking to preserve your precious memories, Crowley’s StillShot is designed to provide you with the best possible scanning experience.

With sturdy construction and an easy-to-use design, the StillShot Film Copy Stand makes it easy to scan your film with unparalleled precision and accuracy. The built-in remote phosphor light source provides the perfect amount of illumination without the risk of overheating sensitive film. A brightness dial, located on the front, accurately adjusts the light emitted, while the LCD screen on the front provides the precise readout of illumination.

The StillShot’s three interchangeable film holders allow users to capture mounted 35 mm slides, 35 mm strip film, medium format frames, and film strips up to 6 x 8 inches using their preferred macro camera and lens (camera and lens macro solution must be capable of achieving a 1 to 1 reduction ratio or better). Alternatively, Crowley’s Professional Services can aid you in creating a setup tailored to your needs. Each film holder has been meticulously designed to meet the Library of Congress and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) handling requirements while still being operator-friendly. Its adjustable height column moves up or down, while the vertical A-frame support moves forward and backward for the precise positioning of the camera relative to the film. Micro-adjustment controls allow for exact alignment, focus, and lighting, ensuring optimal image capture. Additional add-ons like a photography bellows allow you to tailor your setup to meet the specific needs of different film formats. 

So why wait? Whether you’re looking to digitize old family photo slides or medium format strips, the Crowley StillShot Film Copy Stand is the perfect tool for the job.
