Acquiring latent prints from mirrors and other specular surfaces involves a difficulty: How to photograph latent prints and make them available for AFIS databases when the exhibit’s surface reflects camera and photographer?

Such problematic exhibits could be various items made of glass and mirror glass as well as polished metals or lacquered surfaces. Here, EVISCAN helps as its workspace diminishes disturbing light reflections.
