A Camera Stand for Clinical Photography

A Camera Stand for Clinical Photography Abstract In eye photography where a patient's fixation is often inadequate, it is imperative to have a camera with maximum maneuverability and simplicity of operation.

Abstract

Abstract In eye photography where a patient's fixation is often inadequate, it is imperative to have a camera with maximum maneuverability and simplicity of operation. Recently, we have found that incorporation of the power supply and multiple adjustments to the camera stand considerably enhance the ease with which close-up photographs may be made. Although the following will be a description of this stand adapted to a camera which has been previously described,1 a similar arrangement may be used for any camera employing an electronic flash (strobe light). The stand is placed on a small table to which the head and chin rest is attached (Fig. 1). The stand is moved backward or forward until it is in the general range of focus of the patient for the magnification (or minification) desired. Then the fine focusing is accomplished by means of a rack and pinion assembly which is mounted just under References 1. Donaldson, D. D.: A Stereo-Camera for Medical Photography , Med. Biol. Illus. 5:209, 1955.
