Iconasys computer controlled turntables automate 360 degree image capture in a turn, stop, snap workflow providing the ultimate workflow solution for streamlined 360 Shoe Photography Workflows.
The Iconasys Turntable Controller Software works with any camera that supports shutter Release capability and will auto capture images direct to the cameras SD Card. The Shutter Stream 360 Product Photography Software is a complete 360 product photography suite that integrates compatible cameras to allow users to compose, capture, edit, process and output web-ready 360 product views in just minutes!
With either software option, users simply define the number of frames to capture and after hitting start, the software automates image capture by syncing camera snap with turntable movement in a turn, stop, snap workflow. When using Shutter Stream 360 Software, as images are captured, they are uploaded into the software where users can take advantage of the batch image editing and processing tools to create web ready results. Output can be individual frames and/or an interactive 360 product view in HTML5, MP4 and/or Animated GIF format. For those with high volume 360 photography requirements, an Iconasys computer controlled 360 Product Photography Turntable is likely the best option.
Manual 360 Photography Turntable
The Iconasys 18″ Manual 360 Shoe Photography Turntable is a great option for those looking to create 360 Shoe Photography on a budget. The turntable has 72 laser cut engravings around the outside allowing users to effectively adjust shooting angles consistently. It is ideal for shooting 8, 12, 18, 24, 36 or 72 frames over a 360 rotation. When used with Shutter Stream 360, users will use the manual turntable capture mode and define XX number of frames to capture. The image capture workflow can be manual (mouse click the snap button after the turntable is positioned to each angle) or completely automated using the image capture timer (ex. capture an image every 6 seconds). In the later example, users simply adjust the turntable after the camera captures an image until the 360 rotation is complete – allowing for automated capture. As images are captured, they are uploaded into the application where users can batch edit, process and output the set of frames and/or create an interactive 360 product view in HTML5, MP4 and/or Animated GIF format.
