Hi Sally, we have a Phase One IQ180 back with the XF camera body and 80mm lens which we'd be happy to show you if you want to visit us. Unfortunately we don't use it with a lightbox, just for copying hard copy. We are based in Edinburgh so just drop me an email at [log in to unmask] if you'd like to arrange a visit. 
 
Many thanks, 
Anne

Subject: Recommendations for Medium Format Camera Imaging Set-up for 2D Digitisation 
 
Hello, 
 
I am the Camera Officer in the Herbarium of Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. We image herbarium specimens (pressed plants mounted on archival board) at 600 ppi on medium format cameras. We aim to reproduce a high quality images of herbarium specimens so that botanists can zoom into the image and see the same detail that would be seen with a 10x magnification hand lens. 
 
We are looking to upgrade our Aptus II 10 Medium format cameras as the Copal 0 shutter used in the Schneider Apo Digitar 5.6-80 lens has been discontinued. We are getting far fewer actuations from repaired shutters so the cost effectiveness has decreased a lot. 
 
The last camera we purchased in 2013 was a PhaseOne iXR 80MP Reprographic camera used with a custom built lightbox. 
 
Has anyone purchased new medium format camera set-up for 2D digitisation recently that they would recommend (including lightbox)? 
 
I have been asked to come up with a quote for a new set-up and any information and experience would be greatly received. 
 
Many thanks, 
 
Sally
