Complete  System
2D PhotoBench 160 features professional studio lighting (LED) and PhotoBench image creation software. With 2D PhotoBench 260, users are able to efficiently capture, compose, process and output high quality product images with pure white backgrounds ready for use in any application.

34.2 x 30 x 36.6" Photography Studio
Ideal for shooting small and large objects up to 20.5 x 16.5 x 24”.

Control Software
The PhotoBench 160 software works with a compatible Canon or Nikon DSLR camera to automate image capture and processing. Through USB connection, users are able to control studio lighting (dimmable), camera settings, live-view, image capture and processing.

  • Pure White Background Still Product Imaging – Simply place a product inside, compose the picture while previewing in real time on the monitor, pre-crop, and then click Snap. The image is automatically downloaded and displayed on the monitor screen within 2 seconds for viewing and processing. Batch processing available for multiple images.


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.

JPG/RAW/PNG Output
Users have the ability to capture and output images in JPG, PNG, and RAW formats.

Auto PNG - Take Product Shots and 360 Product Images on Transparent Backgrounds
Turn Auto PNG On to take pictures and automatically knockout the background in real-time. The sophisticated edge detection technology generates a PNG file where the object has been removed from its background and is displayed on a transparent background.

  • Transparent background can be replaced with a background of any color or design
  • Optimized settings can be reused to increase throughput and productivity
  • The Auto Trimming and Smoothing feature ensures a smooth crisp product edge after background removal

Easy to Use
Designed for users of any skill level who require high quality product photography. In just minutes, users are able to set up the studio, install the software and get started capturing images with pure white backgrounds.

Fast & Efficient
By integrating the image creation and processing workflows with software, users are able to eliminate many tedious, time consuming tasks common to the standard product photography workflow. Compose, capture and batch save still shots that require no background removal in just seconds. PhotoBench 160 makes high quality product photography efficient and affordable.

Top Shot & Side Shot Capability
Users have the ability to shoot either through the front using a tripod or from the top down.

Multiple Camera Control
Simultaneously control and take pictures with multiple Canon DSLR cameras attached to the system.

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. 

Pre-Crop
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
     

* AfterImage
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.  

*Image Editing
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.

*Advanced Batch Saving
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. 

Image Annotation
Each captured JPG image can be annotated with text and drawings as well as batch edited, printed or sent by email inside the software.

Still Image Magnifier
Utilizes HTML5 coding to provide 3x magnification of any image.

*Windows Software Only
