Equipment Purchases and Setup (Jan/Feb 2015)

Our current imaging work is with a Sinar 33MP camera system. The Sinar system takes excellent photographs, but is difficult to use and prone to crashes. We have chosen new equipment and a custom configured system to accomplish the goals for this project. The information provided by Joanna McCaffrey on the iDigBio web site has been helpful as a start in selecting the equipment: iDigBio Imaging Equipment Recommendations. Advice from other herbaria with equipment in use has also been invaluable.

Configuration of the camera and software is detailed in the Camera Configuration page.
