About Twister Mini

MODE360 TWISTER MINI is the most compact system in the MODE range, allowing you to create professional product photos, 360° photo presentations and video. The system is an ideal alternative to traditional photographic studio. Its intuitiveness and simplicity makes it possible for everyone to become a photographer. The whole process takes a few seconds saving your time and money. The Twister Mini system gives us 100% independence in the process of presenting our products on the Internet. By using 360° presentations, we allow the customer to assess the quality of the product and see every important element of it. In this way, we build the customer's trust, which will certainly convert into a successful sale.

Solid Construction

The system consists of a rotating platform with a diameter of 40 cm and a set of three LED lights. The lights are characterized by an extremely high color reproduction (CRI 95+) and their colour temperature is equivalent to daylight. Thanks to such specifications, the colours of photos will always be reproducible. This will guarantee the visual consistency of the photos e.g. on the website. The maximum load capacity of the rotating platform is 5 kg. The weight of the product does not affect the speed of the platform, so we are sure that the rotation will always be uniform.

Full Automation

The platform is remotely controlled by a dedicated MODEViD software, which needs to be installed on the computer (Windows or MAC). The operation of the entire system is extremely intuitive. After placing the product on a rotating platform, we are ready to work. The software can be set so the camera can take up to 360° pictures of the object at different angles. After one click MODEViD will convert these photos into a rotating animation in HTML5 or HTML5 + Flash format, which can be easily published on a website or selling platform. Animations can be freely rotated and zoomed with computer mouse or a finger on touchscreens. Shooting a single photo takes only 1 s, and making a 360° presentation/video takes about 30 s. The platform does not have to make a full rotation. MODEViD allows you to set any desired rotation range for example 180° or 90° etc.

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 and lens.
