Shoot a high-quality video of your product

First, decide if you want to shoot imagery yourself, or entrust it to a professional. You’ll need to record a video of 1.5 spins of your object. For high-quality results, we recommend shooting with a 4K digital camera, studio lighting, and a motorized turntable for a smooth 360 spin.

Recommended equipment

If you don’t have the equipment or experience, you can reach out to our global network of product imaging experts.
