360° Imaging is a new exciting venture for Microform Imaging Ltd. The requirement was born from scanning archives that contained items that were not paper based. For example, items such as trophies, models and medals would simply be returned without being processed. With the advent of our 360° Imaging camera, we are now able to offer our clients a holistic service including scanning their non-paperbased items.
In an era belonging to online purchases and digital imagery, our 360° Imaging camera allows users to clearly and properly assess as well as scrutinise the physical item on-screen even though it is not in your physical possession.
Its uses are many, from specialist auctioning houses where rare pieces are showcased through to niche jewellery boutiques wanting to show potential clients every nuance and detail of classic timepieces. This zoom-able, 360° image is a great advantage across a wide variety of spectrums.

Providing a 360° image of a product or rare object is the perfect way of advertising or displaying it without risking damage or loss.
We have worked with a variety of museums that are now able to display incredibly fragile artefacts to visitors thanks to 360° imaging.
How 360° works
Like any service we provide, our 360° imaging service is bespoke and tailored to each and every client.
Liaising with a business or organisation before principal photography takes place, we arrange for the full delivery and return of valuables to ensure their security if a project takes place on our premises.
Once that photography and editing has also taken place, we present a preview of images to ensure client satisfaction and sign off.
The project can then be delivered physically via hard-drives and other devices, or by electronic means, such as drop box accounts.
Find out some of the most frequently asked questions about 360° imaging here:
Can I have my products photographed on my own property?
Yes, we are more than happy to offer our imaging services on the premises of a client should this be requested.
My objects are particularly valuable, can I deliver them myself?
This is of course possible, but it is worth noting that we offer pick-up and delivery services with our very own marked and GPS tracked vans.
