About Photo Composer v4

MODE360° FA40 Photo Composer v4 is a professional studio for 2D, 3D and 360° photography, which takes up no more than half a square meter of space. This extremely compact device with high-quality LED lighting creates a complete solution, which is extremely popular in the jewellery, watch and gemmology industries. Photo Composer v4 is the result of many years of research and analysis of all difficulties that jewellery photography has been facing up to now. A precisely designed system of lights allows you to capture and expose every detail, grind or texture, without the knowledge of complicated photographic techniques.

Highest quality lighting

Photo Composer v4 has five independent sources of soft, diffused LED lights with a temperature of 5700K (daylight) and a colour rendering index (CRI) of 95+. In addition, the device is equipped with two flexible spotlights to enhance the brilliance of gemstones or to obtain the desired blinks on gold or silver. Taking professional pictures takes no more than a few seconds. The system automatically removes the background from the image and saves it in the preferred format (JPEG, PNG). The final result does not require further colour corrections, so the saved time can be spent on publishing the photos on the website, social media, or sales platforms.

Easy to use

The FA40 Photo Composer v4 is extremely intuitive. Once the camera is mounted on the device arm and the product is placed on a rotating platform, we are ready to operate. The included MODEViD software, which you install on your computer, connects to the device and the camera via a USB cable. All settings of Photo Composer v4 and the camera can be easily controlled from the MODEViD. The software can be set up so that the camera can take 1 to 360 photos of an object at various angles. MODEViD will convert these photos into an HTML, HTML 5 or FLASH animation file , which can be easily embeded into a website or sales platform. Animations can be rotated and zoomed freely. Taking a single photo takes only 1 s, while a 360° presentation/video takes about 30s.

Powerful tools

Apart from automatic background removal, one of the biggest advantages of MODEViD is Super Focus tool, which is based on an algorithm developed in cooperation with scientists from technical universities. This function allows you to obtain a fully sharp picture, even with a telephoto macro lens and a low aperture value. Currently it is the best focusing solution available on the market.

A wide selection of dedicated accessories, such as jewellery stands, will significantly facilitate everyday work in photography. Additionally, it is possible to replace the platform and the whole background with black or graphite colour. Thanks to this extra feature the user is able to give photos an artistic character, which is certainly a strong marketing tool that will distinguish every brand from the competition.

Comprehensive Support

It is possible to purchase the Twister platform in set with photographic equipment. Our experts will help you to choose the best compatible camera, lens and lighting set to meet your requirements.
