  • Patent number: 10001815
    Abstract: A hinge device for connecting first and second objects includes a base seat and a sliding member slidably connected to the base seat through a coupling member to be turned about a rotating axis between folded and unfolded states. In the folded state, first and second object connecting sections of the base seat and the sliding member are disposed at two opposite sides of a mounting section of the base seat to allow folding of the objects to each other. In the unfolded state, the second object connecting section is placed above the first object connecting section to allow the second object to be unfolded and inclined to the first object.

  • Publication number: 20090087175
    Abstract: A system that provides true parallelism adjustment to a camera's front standard with respect to the film plane. The front standard of a camera is supported by supporting elements that may be lengthened or shortened to adjust the parallelism of the front standard with respect to the film plane. A frame support is provided to determine whether the front standard is parallel to the film plane. The frame support includes two generally U-shape elements supported on the horizontal plane, spaced apart, and parallel to each other by a vertical support. The film plane of the camera is mounted to the lower U-shape element and the front standard rests on the upper U-shape element.
