What makes a premium USCamera light
USCamera light seal kits were designed and used by
technicians years before the internet. The same quality kits we sell today.
Our kits start with imported premium quality open cell foam
from Japan. The same type of foam camera engineers designed cameras to use. For
every kit we make, we have samples of that equipment ... cameras, film backs and
more. Our kits start with accurate measurements taken directly from the sample.
Many times we can compare those measurements to brand new original factory
seals. Then we use various widths of material to find the perfect fit for the
door channels and where additional seals are required. We guarantee them to fit
the equipment listed. All seal kits are randomly checked for the correct number
of seals and proper fit by actually installing the sample kit.
Why buy a kit?
You can save time and be confident knowing you are
installing a proven product. Sure, you can save money by purchasing bulk foam
material and cutting your own kits. We found it takes 1 - 2 hours to measure,
cut and fit a custom cut kit. The more kits you make the better you get. Cutting
open cell foam takes practice. However, even technicians who have cut foam for
years have problems cutting thin strips accurately and consistently.
You can save money and use yarn. Some
people suggest that on the internet.
Yarn had a lot of "fuzzies" exposed in the door
channel. In the past, we
tried yarn to preserve some collectable cameras
perceived value. We found it time consuming to work with. I am sure we would
get better with experience however it is very difficult to produce a clean
install. Small pieces of yarn debris, furry looking particles, dirt or ? on the
negatives......get the picture.
You can bow a cameras back cover and make it hard to close,
if too thick of any material is used in the camera body door channels or back
cover. You do not have to worry about that with a USCamera light seal kit.
design engineers had various materials available to them as camera designs
improved over the years. They used and still use premium grade open cell foam in
