Thank you for seeking inquiries about the EyeRonec camera and Lens System
The EyeRonec lens was developed over a period of some 7 years.
The lens and the lighting unit is precision manufactured in quantities of 100 units at the time and it incorporates the electronics and lights, 2 sets: One set of 2 and one set of 4 (providing the possibility to use 2, 4 and 6 lights) A mains power regulated power supply is provided for the camera. This complete "lens system" is the most valuable item of the whole system.
We have currently many hundreds of EyeRonec systems in use, in over a dozen countries all over the world.
The lens has to be especially designed for a specific model of camera and when this model is replaced by the manufactures we may again have to redesign the complete lens unit.
Currently we are using the Canon camera and printer. No computer is required.
The lens unit is not suitable to be used with any other camera and is not suitable for any other Canon model.
The Camera and lens system connects to a VIDEO MONITOR to enable you to focus and compose the picture. Video monitors are NOT computer monitors they are more like TV sets and many can receive TV signals as well as connect to live blood testing video cameras, DVD and movie cameras.
The camera may be used to download images (previously recorded) to a computer for manipulation and storage.
As an iriscope, the simplest way to use the system is to connect the camera to the monitor for instant display of the iris, and the photo printer to make a 6x4” copy for your patient file.
The Canon printer we use will print a postcard size picture in around a minute and the photograph is guaranteed not to fade for 100 years. The cost per print is reducing all the time currently around 39 c in Australia and 18c in the USA.
We have designed the EyeRonec system to be affordable and the best value for money.
If you have a tight budget and like to use the system in your clinic, we can provide assistance with finance on $ 500.—deposit for approved clients in Australia only.
It is more professional and easier to operate than most if not all other iridology system.
The EyeRonec is not made by a hobbyist, one unit at the time, EyeRonec manufacture currently 100 units in one batch. No computer is needed to operate the system, but with the use of a special card, installed into the PC tower, the PC and monitor may be used. There is also a small device available that connects to the USB of a laptop to display the image on the LCD screen of the laptop.
Neither of these systems show as clear an image than the directly connected VIDEO monitor image
(Even a small 14” TV set will give you a perfect result)
Computer analysing of the iris is very deceptive. There is, ofcourse, no marking in the iris to show the correct location of 12 o’clock so there always will be a deviation. Latest research from Germany, a 10 year trial, found that iridology will correlate with Western medicine diagnosis for 75% of the time but by following-up the patients for an other 10 years this figure goes up to 95% as the Iridology findings actually eventuate in this time. However 5% of the population has a different recording mechanism. And than there is the eye wobble many practitioners and teacher have never heard of. All this decreases the chance of the computer 'getting it right'. A paper chart is easier to use than a computer mouse driven pointer and allows you to ask the right questions.
Producing bar graphs based on the colouring of the iris is not a science and one should not rely on these. Experience is the best tool, ask the patient questions and soon you know what each markings represent. If you like clinical experience you may spend a day in our busy clinic for free or joins one of the Iridology classes conducted by renowned Naturopath Catherine Chan.
We do travel often and if you like to have a demonstration we may be able to meet. Some practitioners have come to see us and stayed over night to have enough training to put the system together and use the camera. There is no charge for this, you are welcome to visit our busy clinic to practice with the EyeRonec system. Others just follow our easy step by step instructions and set the system up in no time.
Q. Can I buy the lens only?
A. The lens unit is designed for a specific model camera and may be of no use at all for other cameras. We can not give any support to people who want to adapt our lens system for use on other equipment. And the price may be too high for a "DIYer"
Q. Can I just buy the camera, I already have a printer and monitor.?
A. We have found that people who purchase just the camera seem to run into a lot of difficulties (NO it does NOT just plug into a computer for instance) and need lots of advice from us to get things working. Taking pictures by looking at a tiny screen is NO way to get good photographs. Yes we know you already have a good printer and monitor. But do you have a VIDEO monitor or LCD TV set and if your printer takes INK forget it . One drop of water spoils the image and a short time exposure to (sun) light and the image fades. The Canon photo printer produced real pictures with 100y Canon guarantee. Trying to get your equipment to work with the camera takes valuable time and we seem to re-invent the wheel each time, so the complete package is a much better deal.We have taken years to get it all worked out for you.
The limited edition iMaster32 is a Canon camera with EyeRonec lens that will connect to a computer's USB port or the video input of a tv set or video monitor for live images.
Q. Why can’t I use a computer monitor which is a lot cheaper.?
A. As discuss before the camera has a live video output signal that is ONLY compatible with Video monitors (RCA connector / composite video) and TV sets with AV / RCA socket. (As well as video projectors)
Computer monitors (XVGA etc.) use different standards. However the monitor we supply CAN be used as a computer monitor as well as a S-Video movie-camera monitor.! A little like "You cannot run a petrol engine on Diesel.!"
Q.I travel from shop to shop how difficult is it to carry the EyeRonec system?
A. The camera and printer and LCD monitor ALL fit into the case we supply.
So it is a true ALL-IN-ONE system, which has the LCD monitor stored in the lid of the case, with the stand removable.
Just one case to carry…easy!
Q. Some suppliers have a maintenance service for $ 400.- a year they maintain the system, do you have a service like that?
A. No The EyeRonec system needs NO special service or maintenance and NO batteries are used, the whole system runs from the mains power. Just clean the lens now and then if you have a dusty environment and take care of all the connections and cables. Cable tidies can keep everything nice and neat. The system is guaranteed for up to 5 years in Australia.
Q. What about supplies of paper?
A. Photographic supplies and computer shops will stock the paper packs but just in case we keep stocks on hand and our price is very competitive and delivery is by express post, so you will get the parcel the next day or so.
Q. Do I need to upgrade after a while?
A. No not so far. We have gained lots of experience and received feed back from the users over the years. The current product incorporates just about everything Practitioners have ever asked for. Since the first batch in 1999 all we have changed is the lens system from plastic to anodized aluminium and incorporated an adjustable lens, we added 2 more lights and improved the lens quality, but the system is basically still the same. Should any major improvement or addition become available we will inform you and give you the option to upgrade. (Olympus has stopped supplying paper for the video printer now which is causing a problem)
Q. If I decide to take your offer to pay the unit over 2 years what do I need to qualify?
A. We need $ 1000.- deposit, a copy of your drivers licence, copy of a rate notice with your name and address, an ATMS or other professional organizations registration number, credit card details and a signed lease agreement. The payments are charged to your credit card each month. A receipt for the equipment will be issued after it has been paid in full. A small amount of interest is charged and refunded pro-rata if paid before time.
