We use our Betterlight 6000 144 Megapixel Scanning Back with a 4×5 View Camera to capture the best image possible. If there is gloss in your image we can remove any light flare with our Double Light Polarizing system. Colour correction is aided by both Betterlight and X-Rite systems conforming to ICC profiles. Maximum Artwork size to capture in house is 48” x 96”.
