A do-it-yourself photo studio, the Photosimile 5000 by Ortery takes the guesswork out of shooting products for brochures or the Web. The device, which is small enough to fit on a desk and comes with a camera, lights, and a turntable, automatically adjusts settings to create professional-looking photographs and 360-degree animations. The system comes with software that allows you to control shoots on a computer and upload images for cropping, editing, and adding watermarks.
