We recommend a Sola brand heavy-duty (sic) unit as essential.

If you have a high-end film recorder you may need a Sola constant voltage power conditioner to keep your images from electrical jolts and glitches.

Previously we recommended the Sola constant voltage power conditioner for using with high-end digital cameras (such as Dicomed, Better Light, PhaseOne, and

comparable top-of-the-line units). We were recently informed that high-end film recorders indicate the need for constant power also.

This is over and above what an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) offers. Do not confuse UPS units and the industrial strength Sola equipment. You need either both or just the Sola unit. The UPS unit by itself is not enough for delicate electrical equipment in major photo studios and prepress production houses.

We welcome input from people who visit this page. Film recorders are not normally an item of equipment we report on, but in the digital era, with "no film," a film recorder is the best way to turn your digital image into traditional film.

If you do any large format digital photography, especially with a Better Light, Jobo, or PhaseOne scan back, you may well need a Sola Heavy-Duty power conditioner as well. Otherwise, a laser printer, xerox machine or any electrical motor can cause fluctuations in the current that will ruin your digital photography unless your lights are protected by a power conditioner.
