ANYTHING3D XT"100 AND XT"350 MOTOR"
IZED TURNTABLES are intended for automa"
tion of 3D photography process. With 3D
photography the objects you are taking pic"
tures of can be seen on the computer screen
and you can get the complete visual informa"
tion about all their features! Our turntable lets
you get the 3D images series of any object
you choose. This widely adaptable kind of 3D
images is in great demand. They could be
used in Internet"shops, on the model agen"
cies sites, at the advertising shows, presen"
tations, etc.
XT"350 model 39" in diameter is intended
for making the photos of people and large
objects. XT"350 turntable is capable of
bearing the heavy objects with a weight of
up to 350 lb.

13. FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS
Question 1: What is to be done if the camera
does not possess a synch contact for the
flash bulb synch cable ?
Answer: There is a number of solutions to
this problem :
1. If the camera lacks a synch contact for the
flash bulb synch cable and if the synch
contact is non"standard or arranged in the
place of the flash bulb attachment on the
camera it is recommended to purchase an
adapter with a standard synch contact ;
2. If the studio pulse light and a stationary
flash bulb on the camera are used the stu"
dio flash bulbs should be equipped with
light synchronizers.
3. Use constant illumination.
13. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Question 2: What is to be done if the camera
does not possess a connector for the camera
remote control adapter?
Answer: All the turntable operation modes,
except Auto one, may be used. The camera
remote control cable is not used in this case
and there is no need to connect it to socket
«A» on the control panel.
Question 3: If the photo studio is supplied
with constant illumination, in what way
should the photography be made?
Answer: When applying the constant illumi"
nation you may use all the turntable opera"
tion modes and there is no need to use the

14. RECOMMENDATIONS
FOR USE
1. Always place the turntable on a firm sur"
face which will not get dented and use
special devices if the turntable requires
levelling.
Figure 14.1
14. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
2. Arrange the equipment connecting cables
so that nobody touches them when moving
around the studio. The cables may be fiy p
of an adhesive tape and it will help to avoid
damaging both people and equipment.
3. Adjust the turntable rotation speed in con"
junction with that of the camera (it takes
some time with digital cameras to store the
information).
4. When taking photographs of the people in
all modes except Auto one it is recom"
mended to use a low speed of the turntable
rotation for smooth movement (and to help
the photographed person to maintain his
attitude without much effort). In Auto Mode
use the greatest speed of rotation allowed
by your photographic equipment for a se"
ries of images.
51
5. Use mainly auto mode («A» mode) when
you take photos of the static objects to
save your time.
6. Slave or Manual Modes («M» mode) are
more suitable when you take the photos of
people; make sure that the model keeps
her/his eyes open to avoid having the
frames where the eyes are closed.
8. Say, you want to make a 32"frame 3D se"
ries where being rotated the photogra"
pher’s model gently raises her hand, titi"
vates her hair and then puts her hand down
again. It is recommended to train this
movement on the rotating turntable before
taking pictures by the camera. The model
must split her movement into 32 phases so
that after making a full turn she may ac"
quire the initial attitude. The voice indica"
tion of the frames will help to do so. For ex"
ample, the movement of the hand starts
from the 3rd frame, the hand reaches the

7. Application of the turntable enables ani"
mated 3D series. As a result it is possible to
get very chic 3D series of the photo models
making some movements during rotation
or changing their attitude, and also of
some transforming objects (the movable
parts of which may be drawn in/out or ro"
tated) and give more complete information
about the object.

highest point by the 13th frame and the
model fixes her hair. Starting from the 18th
frame the hand moves down and acquires
the initial position by the 30th frame.
9. When working in the Manual or Semi"Auto"
matic Modes you can make the animated
3D series of the objects. For instance, you
may show how during rotation of the scan"
ner its lid is being opened and closed.
When the turntable stops after a frame the
position of its lid must be changed a little so
that, say, from frame 4 to frame 13 the lid
will be evenly opened, from frame 14 to
frame 18 it will be fixed in the open position
and closed from frame 19 to frame 29.
While doing this it is very convenient to get
the information about the turntable posi"

tion (about the number of the frame) by
means of the voice indication. The interja"
cent positions of the lid may be fixed with
the help of anything you have at hand, ten"
sion members, for example. They may be
removed from the image during the photo"
graphs processing.

10. Start photography from the model’s back
to make sure that the 1st and 32nd frames
of the series get stitched smoothly without
displacement of the model as in this case
the insignificant shift of the model from the
32nd frame to the 1st one is practically un"
noticeable. (Fig.14.2)
14. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE

11. Use white background as much as you
can and adjust the object illumination
(steadily N) so that the background and
the turntable surface blend. It will simplify
further processing of the series by the im"
age editor.
12. If the ready images are to be arranged
against a light background use the acces"
sory light cover for the table surface (in"
cluded in the kit) and the light background
to avoid a dark outline around the object.
Accordingly, it is preferable to use the ac"
cessory dark cover (also included in the
kit) and a dark background (the back"
ground cover is not included in the com"
plete set of the turntable equipment) to
take the photos of the objects arranged on
a dark background.
14. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
13. The changeable covers must be washed
as they get dirty. They may be washed both
by hands and washing machine at a tem"
perature below 140°F.
14. Apply the camera auto focus only for pre"
liminary adjustment for sharpness and dis"
able it in the process of taking the photos.
