Ortery Photosimile 200 overview

  • 1Description

Ortery's Photosimile 200 combines hardware and software into a streamlined product photography "studio". Photosimile 200 allows you to capture web- and print-ready professional images fast and efficiently. Place up to 20 x 20 x 20" products inside and they'll be uniformly lit up by an integrated 6500K daylight lighting system. The Photosimile software controls the entire workflow. Working together with the Photosimile 200 and your camera, the software allows you to see a live preview, compose the image prior to capture, remotely control the camera and snap photos, and save and transfer images.

Photosimile 200 features an aluminum build and has front and side doors, as well as a door on top with USB and power connections to assist top and side shot camera positioning. You can shoot either through the front door using a tripod (included) or from the top down via a special camera housing area on top. Photosimile 200 is compatible with select Canon and Nikon cameras (see full list below), and the Photosimile software works with both Mac and Windows systems. Some cameras are limited to working with the Photosimile software on specific operating systems (more info below).

How does the process work? Simply connect a compatible camera and Photosimile 200 to your computer via USB connection, place a product inside, and click Preview in the software, and you'll see a live view of the product on your computer monitor. Then compose the live view image using zoom, crop, rotate, and camera settings in the software. Once you've got the image you want, press Snap in the software and the camera will capture web and print-ready product shots in RAW, JPG, TIFF, or PNG format in your choice of pure white or transparent backgrounds. Photos are automatically downloaded to the computer via USB for viewing, editing, and saving.

You can also incorporate Ortery's PhotoCapture 360 turntable into the Photosimile 50 and capture 360° image compositions with the added benefit of an enclosed lighting system. The Photosimile 50 also supports 3rd-party remote desktop access software, such as Splashtop, that mimic the UI of the desktop software on a tablet, enabling you to stand right next to the Photosimile 50 when you snap photos. These apps can be downloaded at the App Store and Google Play.

    Ortery Photosimile 200 reviews

    Photosimile 200 - Desktop Product Photography Studio is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is garbage I've been using this box professionally for the past year and have had nothing but problems. The included software is extremely buggy and the technical support consists of two guys that have very little knowledge of photography. You cannot control the lights at all. The three options you have are, front lights on, rear lights on, all lights on. The box is very cramped and it makes it difficult to style any product inside of it. The lights seem to vary in temperature constantly and it is a constant struggle getting consistent results. I have had much better results from a homemade box where I have some control over what I am doing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from An expensive solution that may suit some products not all Not recommended for glossy light or dark surfaces like glass bottles. We were sold this package for taking professional images of wines and spirits bottles - unfortunately I cannot recommend it for this purpose - the internal lighting arrangement plus taking pictures through a hatch produced unacceptable shapes and light and dark reflections. I cannot recommend the automated software either, the pictures badly exposed and grainy, were dreadful - I ended up taking much better images myself using a basic white card background under strip lighting in our office.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product Well Worth The Money We bought this product because we were having a hard time finding something that would help enable our picture to turn out better. We love this machine! Well worth the money! Were using it with a Canon ES Rebel. Does most of the work for you. I would highly recommend this to anyone that sells on online.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recommend this product We purchased a Photosimile 200 in 2005 and couldn't be happier with this purchase. It's built like a tank and has paid for itself over and over and over. We have shot 1,000's of pictures with it. In fact, almost every photo in our online store (minus some big stuff) was shot inside the studio. Over the years, Ortery has added a lot of new features that even make it easier and faster to use. They are a very responsive company. I'm glad to see they have grown, yet it comes as no surprise to me.
