Anyone who has ever taken a few pictures knows that lighting is the most important factor. It can mean the difference between a great picture and a catastrophe. Ortery’s Photosimile 5000 is a PC-controlled light box, 360° turntable and a CPS(camera-positioning system) that is compatible with many digital cameras. The Photobox will give you shadow-free pictures for use on websites, presentations, eBay etc.
It’s a pretty simple concept. Just you just attach a camera to the light box while your object to be photographed is on the rotating platform, as if you are microwaving it. The light box connects to your PC via a USB cable. The software takes care of all the details, like the camera’s tilt and the speed of the turntable. As long as the item can fit in the box, you’re good to go. No pricing info yet, but the photosimile will be unveiled at the upcoming CES show in January.
