CLUB EQUIPMENT

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

The kit contains everything you need to get you started with studio photography work. It should be available by the end of September. An update will be announced by email and on the news page.

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 use of the studio equipment however, a small contribution to club funds (suggest £10) 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.

Table Studio Set

There is also a Table top studio set available, donated to the club by Ford (he’s bought himself a new LED set up).

The set consists of a white light tent with black, blue, white and red changeable backgrounds plus two lamps.

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