I have a complete Betterlight studio for sale:

Betterlight 8000K-HS USB-2 back model #8150 Serial# 1737

2 Northlights 900watts each with polarizer filters & diffusers

2 stands - Lowboy with right angle bracket

Cambo Ultima 4x5 camera

with lenses on lens boards and shutters
except for the 360 which is a custom made lens board without a shutter as shutters aren’t used for this system of shooting:


90mm Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon
150mm Rodenstock Sironar - N
210mm Schneider Symman - S
240mm Rodenstock APO - Ronar
360mm Rodentsock APO - Ronar - CL
with all lensboards to fit camera

6” Pano adapter with stand for shooting 360º or less of a 3D object.

Zig Align ZP4

smaller fluorescent studio lights - 2 @ 200w and 2@400w
Moving wall for art with vacuum system built in.
Magnetic white board for when vacuum might damage paper

Cambo 7’ and 9’ mono stands for camera with adjustable camera attachment. Stand with camera sits on a movable platform that allows you to move camera in and out from the wall without having to readjust everything each time.


The wall and the camera setup is designed to allow multiple scans of the same large piece of work without having to constantly readjust either one (or the lights) back into alignment as they are both on rollers moving along PVC pipes. Once a large piece of art is attached to the wall and the lights are setup and the camera is focused, then each scan after that is still in focus and properly lighted as the last scan was.
The wall moves left and right to the camera and the camera moves in and out to the wall… always perpendicular to each other.

This is especially good when a large piece requires multiples scans to capture the whole piece. The scans are then merged in Photoshop and work can proceed on the final file as required.

Computer and monitor is available for another $1,000. Don’t remember off the top of my head which Mac it is. The monitor is not a mac.

The software to run the Betterlight is available as a download from their site. If you buy the computer as well, it is on there as well as a couple of other pieces of software that can help.

Asking $25,000 for the whole thing. Drive a truck up here and load it all in and then we can go out for a nice Lobster dinner!!!

I REALLY don't want to piece it out.

A small update to the list:

The actual designation for the scanback is: Super8K-HS

and the Pano adapter is a 4", not a 6".

Old age setting in!!

So... any chance that you still own this equipment? I'm in the market!

I still have the basic system. I have the scan back and the Northlight lights and stands and the camera. I reused the computer for my store and the wall system is long gone.
Most of the lenses were sold to an outdoor 4x5 guy. I was at the point of piecing it out.
I also have the monopole stand for the camera as well...actually 2 of them. One is taller than the other.
Also the pano adapter and a stand for it a well.
I would be happy with $6,000 for everything..and happy for someone else to use this really great system.
