360 Product Photography Software Overview
Shutter Stream 360° Product Photography Software
360° product photography is an emerging trend for businesses who seek to communicate products more effectively online. Along with enhanced visual communication, 360° product photography will provide many benefits for online sellers that include increased conversion rates and decreased product returns. The process for creating 360° product photography however has traditionally been inefficient and fragmented – requiring a skilled user a lot of time, effort and expertise to create a single, web-ready 360° product view. Iconasys Shutter Stream 360° Product Photography Software is a unique 360 photography software suite that integrated and end to end workflow designed for users of any skill level to easily and efficiently create web-ready interactive 360° product views.
Shutter Stream 360° has been designed as a simple solution for 360° product photography that allows users to maximize 360° photography efficiencies (~5 minutes per product) while ensuring high quality results. Shutter Stream 360° provides users the ability to control a compatible camera through mouse clicks and supports 4 different photography turntable shooting modes including Iconasys’ own USB Photography Turntables. The 360° image capture sequence is completely automated (software controlling camera snap over 360 rotation) and as images are captured, they are instantly uploaded into the software where users can then batch edit, resize and compose/customize a web-ready interactive 360° product view (additional info on 360° product output here). In addition to the increased efficiencies, Shutter Stream 360° is designed for users of any skill level and will control all important variables required to make 360° product photography a success.

Iconasys USB Controlled Photography Turntables
Iconasys has emerged as the leader in integrated 360° Product Photography Solutions by delivering the most professional and advanced solutions in the industry. The Iconasys USB Photography Turntable range includes a total of 5 turntables that differ in pricing, size and functionality. Working with an Iconasys Photography Turntable and included Shutter Stream 360 software, users simply connect a compatible camera and turntable via USB to the computer (Mac and Windows compatible) and the entire 360 product photography process is automated by integrating image capture (user defines number of frames to capture per 360 rotation) with turntable movement in a turn, stop, snap workflow. As images are captured, they are uploaded into the Shutter Stream 360 Product Photography Software where users can batch edit, process and output (individual frames and/or 360 product view).

Manual Photography Turntable
Shutter Stream 360 will work with manual photography turntables of any size. This option will be the most affordable option however requires users to manually position their turntable at even intervals during the 360 shooting workflow. The manual photography turntable image capture workflow can be either:
Automated 360 Capture – Users will program to capture between 4 and 360 frames at every X number of seconds – the user in this case will simply be required to manually reposition the turntable at each interval after the camera snaps.
Manual 360 Capture – Users can choose to manually capture an image at each angle by mouse clicking the Snap button in the program. Users can also define to re-enable Live View immediately after capture should they wish to use the Live View window as a positioning aid.
With both workflows, as images are captured they are instantly uploaded into the program for batch image editing, processing and 360 product view creation & output.
Users can expect to compose, capture, edit and output a 360 product view with 24 frames in about 6 minutes in this workflow. How Shutter Stream 360 works with a Manual Photography Turntable
Shutter Stream 360° Product Photography Software will work with a wide variety of motorized photography turntables. The program completely automates the image capture process making it a hands free, efficient and affordable option. Users simply will input into the software the:
Turntable Spin Duration – Users will want to time their turntable and the amount of time it takes to spin one complete 360 rotation. This time is entered into the software and will be responsible for the total image capture time (to ensure you do not capture more or less than 360 degrees). We typically suggest a turntable that is slower than 1 RPM.
Image Capture Frequency – This variable defines how often an image is captured (in seconds and up to 2 decimal places). The program can capture an image up to every 2 seconds.
For example, should a user have a turntable with a spin duration of 100 seconds and wish to capture 30 images/360. The image capture duration will be every 4.00 seconds (100/4.00 = 25).
Users can expect to compose, capture, edit and output a 360 product view with 24 frames in less than 5 minutes in this workflow. How Shutter Stream 360 works with a Motorized Photography Turntable.
Iconasys works with many global partners who sell motorized turntables that will work great with the Shutter Stream 360° Product Photography Software. Contact us to find out more.
There are many turntables that can be found in the open market that have built in shutter release capability. That is, the turntable can be pre-programmed to tell the camera to capture X number of images per 360 rotation, often stopping at each location then sending the capture command to the camera via shutter release cable. Shutter Stream 360° Product Photography Software can further streamline this automated image capture workflow by allowing users to take advantage of the image composition tools (live view, optimize camera settings, pre-crop, set focal point etc.), then instantly upload the images into the program after capture, then batch edit and compose a 360 product view output.
Shutter Release Turntables are often more expensive however for those who already have one or who are looking for an automated turn, stop, snap workflow, Shutter Stream 360° Product Photography Software is a worthwhile investment that will further enhance workflow efficiencies and ease of use.
