Better Light, Inc. was founded in early 1992 by Michael Collette, a design engineer with over 20 years of professional experience in electronics instrumentation. The company is a highly regarded developer of high-performance digital imaging equipment for commercial, scientific, and industrial applications; combining solid-state image sensors, multiple embedded microprocessors, and real-time control software to capture extremely high-resolution images without film or chemical processing. In other words, continuing the pursuit of “Precision Digital Imaging” as technology evolves.
With the Better Light system, exposure, color balance and other quality judgments are made based on a high-quality preview image on the monitor, prior to the capture of the large, high-resolution file. The new “HS” series control boxes will capture and store the images as 16-bit data files (twice the size of the typical 8-bit file), and allow the photographer to save the file in 8-bit, 16-bit, linear raw, or DNG formats.
During the 15 years since its founding, Better Light has established itself as one of the pre-eminent developers of high-quality digital imaging systems for professional applications. The company's self-imposed mandate is simple: to concentrate on the requirements of the demanding commercial and reprographic imaging communities, expand the applications base for high resolution scanning cameras to a widening array of imaging professionals, and continually improve quality. Today, the company is respected as the worldwide leader in large format digital capture, creating images with clarity and detail that surpass 8x10 transparency film. Better Light’s award-winning technology captures delicate gradations, crystal clear highlights and perfectly neutral color to assure trouble-free post-production and printing.
