OverDome light diffusing enclosures target DIY 360 degree jewelry and product photography
Viewpoint Laboratories, LLC, announced today that its expanded line of OverDome Light Diffusing Photography Enclosures now supports 360 spin technology from Arqspin, providing uniform illumination for turntable-based photography.
"Our OverDome products are targeted at customers, particularly amateur photographers, who need a handy solution for professional-
The Mid-angle 12-inch diameter OverDome products are designed to be compatible with the 9 inch turntable available from Arqspin. "The Arqspin 360 spin system, including their software and turntable, provides a great platform to work with," said the spokesperson. "Obviously we needed to provide a dome-aperture view at an angle, since the overhead view wouldn't show the object from all sides. On the other hand, in many cases it's important that the camera avoids the 'horizon' of the turntable, so we figured out the optimal angle that strikes this compromise. As it turns out the "Mid-angle" products work great with ring finger display stands, providing both a forward view of the gemstone at one rotational position and a profile view, down the 'barrel' of the display stand, at the 180-degree opposite rotational position."
"We believe this will be an enabling technology for the web-entrepreneur and for online auction sites like eBay, providing an important differentiator for showcasing products. Besides jewelry photography, the OverDome is useful for small products, mineral and gemstone specimens and collectors' items, as well as vision-based inspection like printed circuit boards, etc. Both the Overhead and Mid-angle apertures are great for simple still photography, but the Mid-angle aperture is needed for 360 spins. All our 12-inch diameter domes have two different size apertures available, a larger aperture for conventional camera lenses and a smaller aperture for smartphone and tablet cameras."
