Professional LED Lighting
Professional photography starts with great lighting. PhotoBench 160 offers professional lighting for taking high quality color-accurate product photos. It utilizes high color rendering LED lights that illuminate objects evenly from the corners, back and bottom, eliminating the need for editing. Lights are dimmable via software.

Free Technical Support, One-Year Free Software Upgrades & One-Year Warranty
Large Live Preview
The software displays camera live view as a real-time preview on the computer monitor. In the real time preview, users can make camera, lighting and crop adjustments to compose the image and see the result before the image is captured. This feature is also great to ensure objects are positioned properly with no hot spots or reflections.
Use the real time preview to set crop markers before capturing images. Pictures are automatically cropped as they are captured, eliminating the need for post production. Crop can be set as:
- Free Form – Adjust crop as required
- Fixed Ratio – Pre-define an aspect ratio that will constrain the crop to a specific size (ex. 4 x 3)
Square – Crop in a perfect square
This feature allows users to overlay a transparent image of a previous shot on the Preview to ensure that future shots are all taken at the same, consistent angle.
Auto, Manual & Fixed Focus
Users have the ability to autofocus OR adjust focus manually on the camera or through the software while viewing a real time preview.
Includes single or batch color correction tools (including Levels, Curves, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation & Sharpness) and an image masking tool that allows users to select and change background color. The batch auto correct tool does an excellent job.
Still Image Saving
Save images at low or high resolution (72/150/300 DPI) for a wide variety of applications. This feature also includes batch image naming, resizing, watermarking and FTP transfer.
Create and re-use custom saving profiles to batch save images in several formats. Options include:
- File name - Assign specific names using extremely flexible naming formulas
- File format –Still - JPG and RAW
- Still Shot Magnifier – Still images can be saved in HTML5 or Flash format with a built in Magnifier for viewing image details at 3X magnification
- Save Location - Batch save images to one or more folders simultaneously
- Image Size - Each image can be independently resized
- Resolution – 72, 150 or 300 DPI
- Batch Edit – Auto apply image editing presets
- Watermarking – Apply text or logo watermarks to images for increased protection and marketing
- Annotations – Include or restrict annotations in the final saved image
A practical use for this feature is to simultaneously save captured images as a thumbnail, product shot, oversized product shot and as the original master – to different folders with different names, sizes and with other unique features.
Each captured JPG image can be annotated with text and drawings as well as batch edited, printed or sent by email inside the software.
