Desk-top microform cameras unveiled

Library Systems Newsletter [June 1982]

The National Micrographics Association Conference is always a major event. Most companies introduce their new micro-graphics equipment at this time. The 1982 Conference held in St. Louis recently saw the introduction of several new microform cameras, all of the type that Fuji likes to call the "No-paper Copier."

All of the machines are approximately the same size and cost approximately the same as office paper copiers. They are also equally simple to operate. The output usually consists of strips of microfilm that can be inserted into microfiche jackets. A sixty-frame jacket costs approximately $.50 to produce. The cost of the supplies themselves is less than a half cent per original page. Most of the machines can copy 1200 to 2500 pages an hour. The maximum page size is 8-1/2 by 14 inches. The machines require no special wiring, plumbing, or lighting. [Contact: Fuji, 350 Fifth Ave., NY, NY 10182; Phillips Company, W 255 N499 Grandview Blvd., Waukesha, WI 53186; 3M Co., P.O.
