The world of jewelry photography and videography is changing, and it’s changing for the better. What was once an expensive process involving a professional camera and a studio setup, a jewelry photoshoot is now a simple exercise whereby you can achieve professional results using your smartphone and a product lightbox. And of course, a 360 Product Photography Turntable won’t go astray either!

Essentially, this photography turntable is a revolving display base that eliminates the need for camera control and results in smooth image capture and video.

The turntable has a handy indentation marking the center point on which to place your piece of jewelry. Once everything is in place, simply adjust the lighting via the app, select the parameters for your desired rotation and your preferred speed. Tap to start, and watch the magic happen. Within no time at all, you will have created a high quality 360 product video that doesn’t require extra editing or processing and that you can pop straight on your website and socials.

In fact, the 360 Product Photography Turntable is only smartphone friendly! Although the GemLightbox by itself is compatible with a digital SLR camera, the rotating display turntable functionality can only be accessed using the smartphone app.

The settings on the 360 product photography app allow you to choose the rotation angle and the speed at which the rotation occurs. This provides so much flexibility for you, the jeweler, to showcase your creations to their maximum potential. In addition to this, you also have the option to use the top shooting angle function to capture an aerial view of your jewelry pieces. In every photo and video, your jewelry should take center stage, and the GemLightbox in conjunction with the 360 Product Photography Turntable allows it to do just that. The end goal of Picup Media is to help you create product photography that sells more jewelry.
