In photography, a copy stand is a device used to copy images and/or text with a camera. The stand consists of a board onto which the media is placed, and a tripod-mount parallel to it, usually with an adjustable height. Light is provided by bright lamps mounted on either side of the media at forty-five degree angles to it. This provides uniform lighting, and reduces specular reflection, keeping glare low.
In film cameras, copy stands are traditionally used with slide film . The fine resolution of slide film allows the images to be reproduced with high fidelity when they are projected.
