What Makes the Foldio360 Smart Dome so Unique?

As opposed to traditional square photo studios, the dual shell dome shape structure of the Foldio360 Smart Dome diffuses the light evenly inside, eliminating any light reflection and shadows. This is especially ideal for those photographing jewelry, glassware, and other reflective materials that require extreme attention to detail when it comes to lighting. You might find yourself having to photoshop less!

The Foldio360 Smart Dome is all about adjusting to your product and your environment making it a user-friendly product for anyone with any skill level. You can customize your lighting such as the color temperature and brightness levels via the foldio360 app or foldio360 Control software. If you shoot with a smartphone, take advantage of the phone mount kit, specifically made to be mounted onto the Foldio360 Smart Dome, for extra stabilization.
