Ortery's Photosimile 220 combines hardware and software into a streamlined product photography "studio". Photosimile 220 allows you to capture web- and print-ready professional images fast and efficiently. Place your products inside the large-size light box, and they'll be uniformly lit up by an integrated 6500K daylight lighting system. Shoot top shots up to 32 x 29" and side shots up to 32 x 29 x 35". The Photosimile software controls the entire workflow. Working together with the Photosimile 220 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 220 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 220 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 220 and capture 360° image compositions with the added benefit of an enclosed lighting system. The Photosimile 220 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 220 when you snap photos. These apps can be downloaded at the App Store and Google Play.
