Details: The LUCID-Art is a modern version of the classic camera lucida drawing tool that has been used by artists for centuries. When you look through the view hole it uses optical mirrors to reflect a transparent "ghost" image of the scene in front of you down onto your canvas or paper, so all you need to do is draw over the reflected image to get correct perspective, foreshortening, proportion, position, overlap, shape. Leaving you more time to develop your art the way you want it without being frustrated by the technical elements. The LUCID-Art retains the magic of this secretive drawing and painting technique, while improving on the original with a brighter, much larger and more stable image, including variable brightness control. The LUCID-Art camera lucida is our largest camera lucida. It is a high quality art tool made in California, USA with strong lightweight aluminum alloy with a powder coated finish. All the mirrors and optical filters are shatterproof acrylic glass. It comes with a powder coated attachable steel clamp that secures it to a workspace. This listing also includes the Photo Projector, which will allow you to enlarge photos up to 4X larger than life. You can use the LUCID-Art if you wear glasses. But it may not work well if you wear bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses. Basically, the LUCID-Art enables you to see two things at the same time laid over each other. So you see your paper and the subject at the same time. So if you have difficulty seeing near and far objects without trifocals, then when the two images are transposed over each other you will only be able to see either one or the other clearly.
