Anti-creep bands now available from Genus

Lens creep has always been an issue when mounting heavy zoom lenses in the wrong orientation that they were designed for, the weight of the lens slowly unwinds the zoom and this can happen even on new lenses. A variety of solutions have been utilised by photographers to prevent this from tape to elastic bands. Genus now has a small band that is designed to go over the lens and sit on the zoom ring and lens case, this prevents lens creep and can remain in place when zooming the lens.

*One Anti creep band is included with the purchase of Metis products and is free to existing Metis users, additional bands can be purchased from Genus at £4.50 + vat each.

About

The V-Cradle Design
The EDS Gamma integrates an innovative V-Table design supported by specific software tools in order to hold the originals in any possible position/angle. The V-table has been specifically designed by Metis in order to accept and gently hold different kind of originals in an optimal manner, even antique books with limited opening angle. The V-Table allows scanning large books, maps, drawings and many types of originals even larger than the A1 format and up to 15cm of thickness. Thanks to the METIS exclusive 'shape recognition' and 'curvature correction' technology, which is integrated into the EDS software, the document shape is detected in real time and the acquired image is deskewed in a fraction of second delivering a perfect result.

Independent lighting position/tilt
The EDS lighting includes 4 lamps that can be adjusted independently by the user (fixed in different positions and tilted). Customising the light position/tilt allow to control the light distribution over the scan area and to optimise reflections and uniformity. This is very important because different originals may require different arrangements and optimisation of the lighting for best results. Furthermore every lamp is controlled (switched On/Off) directly from the EDS Software and according to the selected working profile (i.e. book, map, etc.).

Automatic finger recognition
The Metis EDS software is capable of recognising the operator fingers (and remove them from the image). Furthermore the acquisition can be automatically triggered when the fingers are recognised.

Among the main characteristics of the EDS Gamma there are:

  • Scan area size and resolution can vary according to user needs thanks to the integrated zoom optics and to the variable camera height and position; this makes possible to acquire very large originals (even larger then the A1 format) or increase the optical resolution over 800PPI on smaller formats.
  • Unique V-table solution with automatic shape recognition, deskew and curvature correction features.
  • Unrivalled image quality that is far beyond any other similar solution.
  • Extremely rapid acquisition time (about 30 full scans per minute).
  • integrated Metis LED lighting solution with advanced software control and 3D features.
  • comprehensive EDS acquisition software with many powerful and useful features.
