Photon: mini modular studio for product photographers
Photon just launched on Kickstarter and has already collected its financial goal. Does it mean that this tool is really needed
Photon is a mini studio that features a powerful system of flexible LED lighting. It has 20×20-inch (51x51cm) modules that can form the other three sides of the box. These modules feature 25 active light blocks that measure 4×4 inches (10x10cm) each, and each block has 36 LED elements. With three modules surrounding your product, you’ll get 2,700 total LED lights illuminating the scene.
You can also easily control the lighting level using your smartphone: each panel features its own Wi-Fi transmitter.
“Object shooting equipment is often bulky, outdated and too expensive,” say Photon founder and CEO Iaroslav Neliubov. “Standard photo boxes are mostly made for an isolated object on the background, and it was still difficult to cope with the light. That’s how we got the concept of controlled light system.”
Any dental technician will be pleased to have a tool like Photon. In our opinion it seems to be a great way to photograph this kind of work.
If everything goes well, Photon will be available in June 2020.
