Otamat desktop photographic studio
Press Release:
A picture is worth a thousand words!
We have designed and produced a desktop photographic studio, all-in-one, to get away from those tripods, umbrellas, soft lights, backdrops stands and cables. As we tend to shop and sell more on the internet, on eBay and so on, we need to show our products in the best light and in the best possible view, to maximise the selling potential. Jewellery, watches, mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, cameras and all this pocket paraphernalia needs to be photographed, advertised and sold. Another application is recording one's jewellery and possessions at home for insurance purposes. Collections of pens, matchbox models, cards, and other small objects can be photographed and portfolios exchanged electronically by email, CDs etc.

This studio is a 12x8x8in box with internal lights, continuous backdrop, which can be backlit for reduction of shadows and has the facility to use miniature solid state spot lights. In practice you open the front door of the box, insert your item, point and shoot. If you want to publish your pictures on the web, or on an auction site, you may wish to spend more time to get the best possible pictures.

These days the emphasis is on the camera chip megapixel size and the zoom ratio. This does not necessarily apply to pictures ultimately shown on the web, as the screen resolution is limited, and the file size restricted by the bandwidth, and we have found, that a camera with 3mp is all the resolution you will ever need to show pictures on the web. All is in the lighting, as tens of megapixels will not compensate for a poorly lit object. To achieve the best possible lighting, we use cold cathode high frequency light tubes with a colour temperature of 6400 Kelvin. The white balance of the camera should be set to this light, or calibrated.

The Desktop Photographic Studio is priced well below entry level cameras, to appeal to a wide audience of photographers from all walks of life.

This sound quite interesting and would be useful for other still life photos. However the price of 99 (found on their website) seems quite expensive when you look and see how it is constructed.

The emphasis are on the lighting. Please compare it with MK Digital light boxes, which are made of metal, with inferior lighting to this one and they are 25x dearer, at 2,500!
