Ortery Technologies has released Photosimile 5000, a PC-controlled desktop photography studio that integrates a 28 x 28 x 28” light box with a Canon SLR cameraand powerful workflow software to simplify and automate business photography. The device features 6500K bulbs, an automated camera positioning system and built-in turntable that holds up to 25lbs. The camera and light box connect to a PC via USB. Photosimile 5000 software controls the studio, camera location, turntable movement, camera settings, picture taking and processing workflows. Simply place an item inside, compose using Preview, Zoom and Crop commands in the software. Click Snap and the picture automatically downloads to the PC screen in seconds, Ortery claims. Additionally, Ortery Real3D, included in Photosimile 5000 for image composition, creates full spherical, hemispherical and cylindrical animations with mouse control, image tagging and deep zoom capabilities to 14X, with the resulting product animations being allegedly comparable to interacting with the physical product. Photosimile 5000 runs on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The press release makes no mention of the price, but don’t expect the Photosimile 5000 to be cheap.
