Still Camera

What is in the equipment kit and how to borrow.

The Kit

Located in the Tech Table, the Still Camera Kit can be checked out at the Service Center.

The Still Camera photographs in professional quality with a variety of image settings on a 35 mm lens. The Camera also has a video filming function if required. 

Alternatives: Our Video Camera has, in addition to filming, a photography ability. The GoPro can be a durable and versatile photo alternative if action shots are in mind. The 360 degree camera is meant for wide or panoramic shots. Thermal Imaging Camera only works with thermal applications in mind. The alternative options are really dependent upon your photography needs.
