Workflow

3D PhotoArm 2000

Use the 3D PhotoArm 2000 to create multi-row 3D product animations with ease. When used with a PhotoCapture 360 series photography turntable from Ortery, the workflow for creating 3D animations is automated with software that guides the user through image capture, processing and stitching.

61.8" Vertical Arm / 30” Horizontal Arm / 51.2 x 32.3 x 78.7 to 94.5” Solution

Flexibility

Adjustable horizontal arm / shooting radius. Move the camera in for close ups or keep it far away, the design works for both small and large objects.

Shooting Radius

Camera to object distance can range from 1.8” to 46”. The vertical arm features a built-in measuring stick so users can easily achieve consistent results.

Works With any Lens

The flexible shooting radius allows the user to choose the lens (telephoto, wide angle or macro) that’s right for the job.

Hand Crank Camera Positioning

User controls camera position using a hand crank and an angular guide to ensure correct and consistent shooting angles every time.

Includes Ortery TruView 3D Software

TruView 3D composes individual JPG images into interactive 360 or 3D (hemispherical or full spherical) animations in HTML5. TruView animations feature:

  • Optimized download times
  • Click-and-drag mouse control
  • Deep Zoom Capabilities
  • Dynamic Resizing for Displaying Animations on All Devices
  • Image Tagging
  • Hyperlinks
  • Audio
  • Product Tours – Image tags can be played in sequence to highlight specific product features
  • Animations in HTML5 format can be viewed on all computer and mobile devices, including iPhones, iPads and more.
  • Creates hemispherical animations with up to 10 rows and 24 pictures per row
  • Creates Spherical animations with up to 5 rows per hemisphere and 24 pictures per row

Connectivity

Features a patented system for delivering power and USB connectivity to the camera.

Universal Tripod Head

Designed for use with any camera.

Adjustable Legs for Stabilization and Balance Control

Industrial Design

Built using high quality aluminum and steel.

Wheels for Easy Mobility

Move the arm to where you need it then put the legs down. The legs are adjustable to deliver perfect balance

Compatible Cameras

While the 3D PhotoArm can work with any photography turntable, it was designed to work best with a 3D PhotoBench Series studio or PhotoCapture 360 Series turntable and a Compatible Canon or Nikon digital camera. These products come with a 3D image capture mode where users can define hemispherical or full-spherical output – for example, how many rows and pictures per row to take. The software controls the whole process. Image capture is automated at each row and the user is instructed (depending on the number of rows selected) to move the camera to the next position. Individual images can be exported (JPG or RAW) then imported (JPG) into TruView 3D for composition into a 3D product view. Transfer to TruView, when using an Ortery PhotoCapture Series turntable is fully automated.

Shooting Guide

Comes with guides that explain how to set up the system and take pictures in a hemispherical and spherical format.
