Q: Can you reflect an image from a photo or other small object?
A: Yes, you can reflect the image of a photo or small object to the original size, smaller or a little larger than life. The height of the camera lucida is adjustable to fit your height, so say you have the camera lucida eye piece set 20’’ high, then position the photo (by attaching it to a wall or easel or something) 20” away; then the reflected image will be the original size. If you want the reflection to be smaller then life then move the photo farther back (you’ll be able to get it as small as you want). If you want to make the reflection larger then life then more it closer than 20” (for now you can only enlarge to about 2 or 2.5 time the original).
Q: Do you offer discounts for schools or other nonprofit organizations?
A: Yes, contact us for more information if you are buying for a school or other nonprofit organization.
