Fabulous New Lighting System For Product Photography
ASTRON has come out with a new lighting system for the digital photography of products.
... The Astron Orbiculight is a dream come true for professionals.
... To see what it looks like, I refer you to the accompanying photograph of the Orbiculight. (Shown above, and beautifully in this enlargement! Beware, it will take a moment to load.)
... The unit is on a wheeled stand with a control panel on the front. There is an illuminated "table-top" that curves up into a seamless background, and a barrel-vault top that tilts up.
... The unit is very energy efficient and needs no special power supply. It has 16 lamps adjustable from 0 to 100% luminance, from a control board. The lamps produce a constant 5000k with a CRI of 85.
... The price for the system is around $15,000 and for anyone specializing in product photography that would soon pay for itself in saved time and improved results.
