In order to help retailers take advantage of this technology the team at Swiftspin near Bath in the UK have written a step-by-step guide to building a simple 360 product photography turntable which is ideal for products up to 400 kgs in weight and 1 metre in diameter.
Detailed instructions walk through the process of building an affordable turntable which will allow retailers to take their own 360 product shots. From the tools required, to finding the exact centre of the top disc, the guide clearly illustrates how to build an essential piece of 360 photography equipment.
"We realise that not all retailers are in a position to use our professional 360 facilities, but many have some photographic experience and want to give it a go themselves" says Swiftspin's head of photography Pete Gallop. "This do-it-yourself guide will help them construct a perfectly good turntable for far less money than the professional 360 equipment currently on the market".
Once constructed the Swiftspin team advise on the best way to shoot 360 spins using the turntable and offer an animation service which brings the images shot to life.
Retailers can request the guide by submitting the form at http://www.swiftspin360.com or emailing the Swiftspin team direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
