What makes a premium USCamera light seal kit?
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 you 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.
Camera 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 imaging equipment.
