Key features of BlackBox 120

 

1. High quality light.

BlackBox 120 comes with a photographic light panel from Rybozen. This light source was selected for high-quality light with a Color Rendering Index CRI=98, optimal color Temperature = 5000K, and a 125x100mm illumination area with an optical diffuser. The light source is powered over a USB-A cable from a USB charger or a power bank. Rybozen light panel can also be used separately from BlackBox 120.

 

2. Perfect masking and alignment by design.

BlackBox 120 is built from high-density PLA and ABS components for maximum stability. Its functional design is created with one purpose - to always hold your camera perfectly parallel to the film plane while completely masking it from ambient light. In contrast to other setups, the camera doesn’t need leveling or alignment. Ever. For optimal masking of your frames, BlackBox 120 comes with 3 interchangeable masks: 6x7, 6x6, and 6x4,5, while 6x9 is the native format of BlackBox 120.

 

3. Adjustable height.

BlackBox 120 has 5 height extension sections: 20mm, 30mm, 40mm, 100mm, and 150mm. The extension sections connect using a bayonet lock (insert and twist). They can be stacked in any combination to match the minimum focal distance of your macro lens. Extension sections can adjust the distance between your lens and the film from 30mm to 340mm. It makes BlackBox 120 compatible with lenses up to 140mm focal length when scanning 6x9 format. Additional extension sections are available by request if needed.

 

4. Compatible lenses.

Using the filter thread, your lens is mounted on top of the BlackBox 120. Any lens with a filter thread diameter of 77mm, 72mm, 67mm, 62mm, 58mm, 55mm, 52mm, 49mm, or 37mm is compatible.

 

5. Film carrier.

BlackBox 120 works with Canon Film Guide QM3. It holds 22cm of cut medium format (120-type) film and fits 2 6x9 frames, 3 6x7 frames, 3 6x6 frames, or 4 6x4,5 frames. The film holder ensures that your film is not scratched during scanning while keeping it flat in the focal plane. The distance between the film plane and the diffuser is designed to be 7.5mm - enough to throw into the out-of-focus area all potential dust particles accumulated on the surface of the light table.
