The QuadrapodTM Copy Stand family of camera stands are sold exclusively by Forensic Imaging, Inc., under license from the patent holder. We feel these stands are superior to any others, when used for close-up and measurement purposes (on scene, or in the lab). The stands are very portable due to being both light weight and easily assembled (or disassembled). By being four legged, they are much more stable than a traditional tripod. This is true, especially, when used for close-in photography. Additionally, by having four legs, it allows for 4 directions of light between them without getting interfering shadows from the legs in the image.
Some of the QuadrapodTM Copy Stand family applications are in:
Footwear and tire-track imaging
Body fluid pattern imaging
General close-up imaging
Mass disaster and mass grave imaging
