Shooting Modes

Step Mode

Step Mode allows you to jog and position with extreme position. This allows the user to select how many motor steps to move, which display the actual distance moved at the Micron scale. This ensures incredibly accurate and repeatable movements of the subject. The minimal resolution on this is approx. 1 micron per movement.

Rotational Mode

Rotational Mode will set the system to showcase the subject with full rotations. You can directly select degrees of movement from 1-9999, or quickly increase and decrease by 90 degrees with the Up and Down buttons. Or you can have the system run in continuous mode. This is an excellent for capturing 360 degree video shoots, or showcasing a small subject in a continuous rotation in front of a camera that feeds to a monitor on a trade show.

Measure Mode

This is a new feature that can be used to accurately measure subjects even smaller than the scale on a butterfly wing. By using a grid on the screen of the camera, a user can position a reference position such as the side of the butterfly wing, then position the other side of the wing to the same location on the grid. With this, the system will calculate distance moved between each position down to micron levels. The method of measurement ensures that regardless if you are at 1:1 or 50:1 magnification, that you will get an extremely accurate measurement at even the microscopic levels. The output will display the X (left or right), Z (up and down) and the Hypotenuse of those to understand the point to point distance. 

The system will continue to be updateable with new methods of moving, measuring, and capturing.
