TimeTronics have become world renowned as the leaders in innovation for photo finish products. Ever since TimeTronics released the first word wide digital black and white photo finish system in 1990 and the first colour digital photo finish camera in 1993, they have consistently provided the market with the very latest in sports timing technology. The present is no exception; we proudly offer the MacFinish 100 series and 300 series which have yet again broken boundaries within the photo finish world. 
Launched in 2009, the MacFinish 2D 100 camera series became the first photo finish camera on the market to make use of 2D sensors that are seen on the digital camera and video market. The main advantage this gives is that camera can be aligned to the finish line effortlessly, which is explained later.

Aligning the MacFinish cameras to the finish line: 
 
One of the major advantages of the MacFinish 2D photo finish camera is the feature of the 2 dimensional video view used to align the camera to the finish line before an event. In the past a very experienced operator was needed to find the finish line. Most of you will remember the operator turning the camera from side to side many times to align the camera. With our MacFinish 2D 100 a perfect camera alignment can now be achieved much easier and much faster than in the past. 
Place the camera in extension of the finish line and open the camera control window to have a 2-dimensional live video view of the finish line. 
The camera can be turned manually or with the software control functions until you have the finish line right in between the 2 vertical green lines in the left video window. 
 
With a little experience, the user should find that they can align the camera with the finish line in 30 - 50 seconds! 
 
At the same time you have a zoom of 3 critical points on your right hand side to give you a detailed view of the finish line. 
 
Adjust the focus manually with the focus assistant if you have a manual lens or just auto focus with 1 click of a button if you have a 3-way motorized lens.
