The second generation Twister is capable of safely capturing models in 360 degrees. You can also use the Twister Fashion for products up to 200 kg. You connect the Twister Fashion and a suitable Canon camera (see below) to a Windows or MacOS computer, after which the Twister and the camera are controlled fully automatically by the supplied ModeVid software. You can easily take pictures of all sides of the model, with the Twister moving very smoothly.
How does it work exactly?
You place a model or product of your choice on the white turntable of Ø 120 cm. The turntable of the Twister Fashion comes with a support for the outer part of the turntable. The turntable rests on the Twister Fashion, a housing containing, among other things, a special electric motor. You place a white background behind the Twister Fashion so that the white turntable (the base) flows beautifully into the background. You also make sure that the model and the background are nicely lit with flash or continuous lighting. If you already have an equipped studio, the Twister can be used in many cases. If you don't have backgrounds and lighting at home yet, we refer you to the standard set, which you can find at the optional accessories. Please contact us for a customized lighting solution.
In the supplied software you choose the number of angles from which you want to take photos. The photos are automatically stored in a folder on your computer. For example, you can choose to take four photos: the model will then automatically be photographed from the front, left side, back and right side. Of course you can also take one single photo or capture a model from, say, 36, 50 or 100 angles. From this, the software makes a 360 degree spin, which can be interactively operated by your client on your website. The ModeVid software has many more features; you can create presets, crop all photos at once or adjust the color of a dress for example. If you have specific requirements, please feel free to contact us for the possibilities.
What can I use the Twister Fashion for?
In addition to models, products weighing up to 200 kg are suitable. You can think of furniture, bicycles, white goods and all other similar products. The height of a product is not important, as long as the white background is higher. In terms of weight there are some restrictions; for example, an object weighing 150+ kg may have a maximum diameter of 60 cm and a product weighing 100+ kg may have a maximum diameter of 120 cm. You will find a complete overview of the weight distribution in the diagram below:
