The following are our recommended lens / camera combinations across the range of manufacturers and body styles, ordered by our preference. Your choice may depend on availability, personal brand preference, resolution requirements, total price and wether you value certain features for use outside of scanning.
We recommend purchasing the associated power supply as well for uninterrupted scanning ( as opposed to cycling and charging batteries).
Before purchasing via the links below, please first try to support your local independent camera retail store.
