Club equipment for members’ use.

Thanks to an award by Scottish Borders Community Grant Scheme we have not only been able to replace our non-functioning club laptop and projector with new units but have also acquired a colour calibration kit and studio lighting equipment.

Color Munki Photo Kit

Select Colormunki Training video to get started

This will enable members who do not own equipment to calibrate their, monitor/laptop screen, projector AND Printer. It comes complete an instructional video disc.

** Mac users

Latest Mac ios is 64 bit applications only. The Colormunki app is 32 bit. You will have to install Xrite iStudio software

Contact Ford Renton if you’d like to borrow the calibration kit. It is available now, there is no charge for borrowing.

Studio Lighting and Backdrop set

We have ordered an Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4/4 Softbox To Go Set with 2m x 4m Vinyl Black/White backdrop and stands

The kit contains everything you need to get you started with studio photography work. It can be collected from the club room on any club night. If you need it at other times contact Ford Renton

Here is a link to Elinchrom’s own instructional videos, many more are available on YouTube.

Contact Ford Renton if you’d like to borrow the Studio kit.

There is no charge for the use of the studio equipment however, a small contribution to club funds (suggest £5) to help us replace consumable parts, such as connection cables or modelling lamps, would be very much appreciated.

The above equipment is a great asset to the club and it is hoped it will be widely used by our members.

Care of the equipment will be the responsibility of the member using it at the time. Any damage (other than fair wear and tear), loss, theft, or misuse of the equipment will also be the responsibility of the member and therefore liable for repair/replacement costs.

The equipment should be loaned for a maximum of 7 days at a time. It is also intended for the member’s personal use, NOT for commercial purposes.

The club cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused to your premises through equipment failure or accidents.

If you are doing studio work it is a good idea get a model release form signed. Download one from here.

Table Studio Set

There is also a Tabletop studio set available. The set consists of a white light tent with black, blue, white and red changeable backgrounds plus two lamps.
