The Ortery Photosimile 400 Studio is a free-standing, PC-controlled digital photography studio that anyone can use, regardless of expertise to create professional, color-accurate shadow-free photographs that are perfect for websites, product catalogs, online auctions, quality control, product development or enhanced business communication. Images can be annotated, masked, emailed and batch processed with regards to naming, resizing, watermarking and saving.
With interior dimensions of 36.2 x 32.6 x 78.8" the Photosimile 400 is perfect for large items that simply won’t fit in tabletop systems. In fact, Ortery's website illustrates this self-contained studio with a person in it! (Keep in mind that the turntable weight capacity is 200 lb).
As a PC-controlled photography studio, camera settings (with compatible cameras) are pre-set for obtaining optimal results when shooting items inside the light box. You can preview, crop and compose images on your PC monitor screen in real-time. Provision is made for top and side shooting inside the box as well as placing the camera outside the box. The computer-controllable 22” embedded turntable rotates a full 360 degrees enabling 4 – 200 JPEG and / or RAW photos in one rotation as well as offering wide video and animation options.
The Right Light Every Time
Professional photography starts with great lighting. Photosimile 400 offers uniform and consistent lighting for taking shadow-free and color accurate photos. It utilizes a symmetrical array of daylight (6500K) bulbs that illuminate objects evenly, almost eliminating the need for editing. Front, top and back lights are dimmable and can be controlled (on / off) manually or through the software.
Mac and PC-controlled Photography
The Photosimile Image Creation Software controls every aspect of the studio, compatible camera, picture taking and picture processing workflows. The ability to obtain a professional photograph is built into the system. Using a computer to take pictures gives the user a real-time preview on their monitor screen and the ability to pre-crop the photo. Pictures are composed and taken by clicking Preview, Rotate, Crop and Snap in the software. Captured photos are immediately transferred from the camera to computer monitor in seconds for viewing, editing and saving.
Image Capture to Image Processing - One Program Does It All
Captured images can be annotated, masked, emailed and batch processed with regards to naming, resizing, watermarking and saving. The image processing workflows inside the software make it very efficient to process images for websites, print and email.
