The turntable rotation and image capture process can be fully automated using motion control software, such as eMCee. The precise rotation of the turntable, timed intervals between rotations, and camera shutter release can be programmed, creating a fully automated process. However, the motorized turntable and motion control software must be compatible with the camera in order to fully automate the image capture process. Be sure to check the software specifications for a list of compatible digital cameras. Some photographers may wish to have more control over the image capture process. A manual turntable with click-stops at every 10 degrees may provide sufficiently precise rotation. Manual rotation allows the photographer time to make sure that the object is steady and unwavering before an image is captured.
