Technical Information


For the digitisation of the Koran, we will be using our top of the range Phase One p65+ digitial medium format system. The back is used with a Phase One 645AF body, using a Phase One 80mm lens.

Other Equipment used includes;

2 Multiblitz Magnolite BL 40 lights, with 650w heads

Manfrotto Tripod and head

Tethered to Apple Macbook pro

The P65+ digital back has a maximum resolution of 60.5 million pixels, spread across a full fram 645 sensor. This gives unrivaled quality and detail, from Raw fils of around 60MB. Tiffs processed to around 100mb outputted, giving the user the ability to zoom incredibly far in to the image.
