How to take a Peripheral rollout Photograph of a Cylindrical Object?

A "rollout" is a picture of the decoration on the circumference of a round object. It takes a special turntable to rotate the round object (in this case a 7th century Maya vase) in front of a specially adapted camera. This class of camera takes a photograph through a narrow vertical slit. Better Light is a company which invented the software and hardware to make this class of camera available in digital format.

For information on the technical aspects of the hardware and software please contact the inventor and developer Michael Collette directly: e-mail info@betterlight.com. Note that the company name is spelled out fully, Better Light whereas the e-mail is is an abbreviated and punned version.

The Better Light version of the Dicomed Field Pro DDC is a superior digital system. This Better Light Dicomed has earned its place in the history of photographic technology as the first production model of a digital rollout and large format digital panorama system.

I can, though, report that the Better Light rollout system is superior in quality to both of the two other rollout cameras which FLAAR already has, and both of them were in turn the previous Best of Class for their kind.

This system is new, and we are still preparing our analysis. In the meantime we did not want to delay announcement of the Better Light potential any longer.

This section of the greater FLAAR digital photography program Web site expands seasonally as are test teams return from our expeditions to Central America.

Most of the year we are out in the jungle or in a far away museum doing intensive and extensive photography. Now at least we have the absolute ultimate in high-end large format photography, on the cutting-edge of rapidly developing technology--the Better Light rollout adaptation of the Dicomed.

Now available: the new advanced 2nd-generation Better Light camera. Visit our Digital Photography website for more information and reviews.

If you might be using the BetterLight scanning back to photograph art for eventual fine art giclee printing, then consider asking about the BetterLight camera since they know scanners, fine art giclee printers, watercolor paper, canvas, and also now the BetterLight digital camera systems.
