DIY Turn Table for eMotimo TB3

The eMotimo TB3 controller is an amazing tool for creating multi-axis time lapse sequences. They also sell a very elegant accessory called the turn table that can be used for product photography, stop motion, or video. Unfortunately, I don't do that much product photography, but still wanted to see if I could build one of these myself for a lower cost. Using Actobotics parts from ServoCity, I created a DIY turn table that mounts to any tripod.

I am very happy with the results. This is another accessory that I can add to my eMotimo photography arsenal. I'm not going to go into the details on how the eMotimo TB3 works, but basically you can to motion time lapse photography and have the turn table rotate between each photo. The video is an example where I removed a small amount of beer from the glass between each photo to give the impression that the glass was emptied magically.

I've never personally seen the turn table that is sold by eMotimo, but it looks gorgeous. This DIY version looks much more industrial, but the functionality should be the same.
