Film scanning is brighter than ever with the CS-LITE Camera Scanning Light Source. Combine that with the VALOI 360 camera scanning system and you are well on your way to an affordable, easy-to-use digital camera scanning setup.
This product is USB-powered and requires a 5V/1.6A power brick (typically a phone charger) with USB-A. Even a small/older one will power this unit.
This light can be used on its own (sitting flat on a table), or in conjunction with our VALOI 360 Adapter 104 or VALOI 360 LightAdapter for more stability and adjustable feet.
The CS-LITE Camera Scanning Light Source is a compact camera scanning light source. It was designed to provide film photographers higher-quality light with improved color management, in order to facilitate the process of scanning their favorite 35mm and medium format films with a digital camera.
The CS-LITE features a CRI of 95+ for high color accuracy and a brightness of EV 15+ to provide sufficient illumination for even the densest of negatives. What sets the CS-LITE apart from other light sources on the market is its ability to adjust color temperatures to properly suit different types of film, such as color negative, color positive, and black and white. These are controlled directly from the built-in remote control of the CS-LITE.
|CS-LITE Color Temperature:||Calibrated for:|
|Cool Light mode||Color Negative film|
|White Light mode||Black and White film, Slide film processed in CineStill D9 DynamicChrome|
|Warm Light mode||Slide film processed in standard E6 chemistry or CineStill D6 DaylightChrome|
The Cool Light mode reduces the orange mask that is present in color negative film providing color balanced scans with better color separation and less noise.
The White Light mode is ideal for scanning black and white film.
Lastly, the Warm Light mode is perfect for scanning standard E6 processed slide film, as the tungsten-balanced light can produce richer tones and enhanced color separation, especially within the red channel.
The CS-LITE Mask is a mask that lets you slot the VALOI holders straight into the plate. This allows for a compact stabilized solution for holding your film in place when digitizing. The mask around the edges of the carrier helps to eliminate spill light, reducing unwanted reflections and maintaining uniformity across the entirety of your scans.
