Infrared Reflectography Camera NOW extended to 2350 nm


We just tested the Xenics Xeva-2.35-320 TE4, a 320 x 256 pixels T2SL (Type II Super Lattice) camera. It is sensitive from 1000 to 2350 nm and it is a promising tool for art examination. We evaluated its performance on our pigments checker and we will soon publish the results. In order to evaluate in detail the capacity [...]

Arduino for Panoramic Infrared Reflectography


For those who take the 5 days train­ing course on multispectral imaging and technical 2D and 3D photographic methods  can be provided on request an Arduino programmed circuit board for Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. The Arduino solution was proposed in this post “Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Arduino electronics”.  The panoramic method was introduced in the post “Panoramic Infrared [...]

Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Technical Recommendations.


"Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Technical Recommendations" has been published on the International Journal of Conservation Science, IJCS Volume 5, Issue 1, January-March 2014: 51-60. In this paper I provide more detailed information on the new technique of doing infrared reflectography with a panoramic system. I have been posting on this idea from a while on the [...]

Training in Ecuador


In September I was invited to give a 3 weeks training on Multispectral Imaging to the Instituto Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural in Quito, Ecuador. Once arrived I helped set up the space to be used as the imaging lab and I worked on putting together and testing the equipment. For the logistics, purchasing and importing of [...]

Panoramic Infrared Reflectography: Xenics Bobcat 320 InGaAs Camera


Last September I was giving a 3 weeks training for the Instituto Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural (INPC) of Ecuador, in Quito. They already have a well-equipped analytical lab and needed to set up a multispectral imaging studio. I suggested them the tools to buy and once the parcels where all arrived I went to Quito [...]

Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Kolor Panogear


I just got a Kolor Panogear panoramic head to be tested for Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. I definitely welcome companies to send me their products for evaluation for the specific tasks of art examination. [ws_table id="5"]   Panoramic photography can be performed using an automatic panoramic head, which can be programmed to rotate the camera around the entrance [...]

Panoramic Infrared Reflectography: Xenics Bobcat 640 InGaAs Camera


I have been looking for an InGaAs camera specifically useful for Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. [ws_table id="5"] Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Xenics InGaAs camera Bobcat 640 on the Gigapan Epic Pro Panoramic Head. I currently own an Indigo System camera 320x256 pixels which does its work pretty well. I would like to upgrade to a [...]

Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Lighting


Panoramic Multispectral Imaging photography is the method I use for art documentation as it’s fast and lightweight. I already published about it “A Practical Guide to Panoramic Multispectral Imaging” and I posted on this subject throughout my blog: “Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Arduino electronics”, “Panoramic Infrared Reflectography for painting documentation”,  “Gigapan, High Resolution Imaging made easy” [ws_table id="5"] Panoramic [...]
