The Pamco-Imaging VR1040 40 lb/18" Photography Turntable is a 360° turntable system with an 18" foamboard disk and a white foamboard back panel. The VR1040 has a load capacity of 40 lb.
It shoots 36 shots in a 360° sequence in one minute. The turntable can be paused at any moment in that minute to allow for additional shots to be taken.
The VR1040 additionally ships with a gray card, a 15' USB cable, a power supply and AC cord, a Java script generator, and a full-featured turntable and camera control software compatible with Windows and with Macs running Windows via VMware or Parallels software.
- The Software
- The turntable comes with two applications -- a Java script generator, and a full-featured turntable and camera control software which we'll discuss below. The control software is designed specifically for Canon EOS cameras but any camera with a wired remote trigger interface can be accommodated (see camera list below). The control software is compatible with Windows and with Macs running Windows via VMware or Parallels software.
- The application has a Live View pop-up window in which the turntable position can be fine-tuned with a mouse.
- The application also features a large-sized histogram with a customizable highlight alert whose value can be set up to 255 in addition to the option of choosing a custom color.
- An Auto Paint feature is available to make the background 100% RBG 255 white.
- An available mini control facilitates very simple use of the application.
- A camera control feature allows camera settings to be saved and shutter to be changed by 1/3 of a stop simultaneously with a test shot being taken.
- Images can be shot RAW and JPG and saved to a hard drive or memory card or to both at once.
- A shoot delay and shutter delay control provides many options such as flash recycle times; or manual control can be used to take images one at a time.
- AEB 3 shot mode is available for shooting HDR images.
- A mirror up feature is available for select cameras.
- Images can be resized automatically, instantly ready for encoding.
- A before/after image comparison window with RGB and luminance value display is featured and is great for setting exposure.
- A folder automatically gets created for each item shot.
- Software's Camera Compatibility Feature List
- The control software is designed specifically for Canon EOS cameras but can also trigger any non-Canon cameras via a Pamco-Imaging remote trigger cable as long as the camera has a wired remote plug.
