CHSOS Technical Photography KIT

We designed a Technical Photography kit specifically for art professionals and  educational institutions.

It uses a full spectrum camera sensitive to the Ultraviolet and Infrared radiation and a set of specific filters and lamps. Use this kit to examine works of art with Technical Photography methods. It represents the best compromise among quality, adaptability and costs and it allows to realize a complete set of 8 technical photo documentation methods: VIS (visible photography), UVF (Ultraviolet Fluorescence photography), UVR (Reflected Ultraviolet photography), IR (Infrared photography), IRF (Infrared Fluorescence photography), IRFC (Infrared False Color photography), IRT (Infrared Transmitted photography) and RAK (Raking light photography).
This kit is recommended to art professionals such as conservators, art appraisers, archaeologists, art historians.
Use it for fast and informative examination of easel paintings, wall paintings, manuscripts and historical documents.

We propose two versions of this kit, Standard and Professional:
