The NeoLucida is a modern reinterpretation of the camera lucida, a 19th century optical drawing aid. It superimposes an image of your subject onto your paper. You see your pencil and your subject at the same time. Trace what you see!

The NeoLucida XL uses mirror and glass to combine a virtual ghost image of your subject and the real view of your hand.

Setting it up is easy:

• Clamp the NeoLucida XL to a table or sturdy drawing board.

• Bend the adjustable gooseneck so that the viewer is facing your subject and positioned over your paper.

• Look straight down into the viewer to see your page and a ghost image of your subject superimposed.

• Trace what you see!

Extend my spine please

A great tool. The length of the spine should be 20 cm longer to assist working on 400 by 300 mm paper mounted on a drawing board. Takes a lot of desk surface to fit. Canvas example attached. A lot of moving about to draw individual items from eg a photograph like the character in the attached. Would gratefully receive one longer spine.stem if you have it please

Interesting equipment!

This contraption really delivers! It intrigued me at once when I saw the ads for it. So I researched it a bit and discovered that things like this were greatly in vogue during the 1800’s. I have now used it for a couple of months, and I am slowly getting the hang of it! In the process, I have learned more about perspectives than in years of art studies. Emipirical data. My drawings are so much better. Perfect as a basis for watercolours! Thank you for bringing this apparatus to the 21st Century!

Works exactly as expected, a good thing.

Works well and as advertised. Exactly what I was expecting. Lighting is the key to using optics. Having fun experimenting with more or less light on the subject versus the drawing surface. Glad I went with the larger format. Size can be controlled by adjusting height and distances from subject and drawing surface. The standard mount allows for attachment to other camera accessories for even more versatility. Best to assemble before clamping to drawing surface for faster and easier assembly. Having fun drawing and sharing time with my daughter.
