Gear needed for the course
Smooth, long-running, takes two AA batteries. Good for small items, including jewelry. Low price
Does not have a remote, comes without a plate (since this is pano head, not a turn table) – you have to buy a screw-in plate separately
This is a plate for turntables and panning heads (like Syrp Gene Mini and TursPro), it screws into a head’s pin.
Great to make DIY turn table from anything that rotates:-)
Smooth rotation, long battery life, has a remote smartphone app, variable speeds, usb charging. BEST
Higher that usual price, can behave strange due to a sophistication (Bluetooth, Application on smartphone to operate)
Overall it’s a good turn table for any medium sized product, comes with white top plate.
Rotation is not smooth enough for macro/jewelry shooting, no remote.
Great for any panorama/video shooting, but not for Cappasity 3D scan software because can’t spin for more than 360°.
only 360° rotation, it WON’T WORK with Cappasity3 D Scan
Good for most of photo-video work, not expensive, reliable for it’s price. Bowens mount means many accessories and light modifiers on a market. Comes with a remote (wireless)
Large and bulky
Color balanced photo/video light, low price, can be used without softbox
No light modifiers possible, only built-in barndoors.
Low-cost, includes 2 lights, comes with light stands
Low power comparing to LED, no light modifier (no softbox), must be used with a diffuser to reduce glare from glossy parts
Low price, has a built-in softbox, comes in kit of 2 and with light stands
Not as bright as LED, takes time to “heat up” for the CFL bulb, light modifier can’t be replaced by anything else
Similar to Godox by features, but in smaller case
DIY Solution, great light for the money. Directed (spot) light for DIY softbox of with a diffuser/light tent
No light modifiers are possible, requires additional gear to be used (stands, socket)
Light Modifiers and Accessories
Holds any background (backdrop) for a professional studio. Will work with large items
Requires a backdrop
Can be used for medium/small item without backdrops and softboxes. Good for low-cost DIY solutions with LED light bulbs
Limitations such as not adjustable distance to a diffuser, etc. May not work for bright or white items on a white background
