Preparation -

*Using a protractor, measure off 10 degree increments around

the outer edge of the Lazy Susan with a black marker. Since there are

360 degrees in a circle, you will end up with 36 marks.

  • Set the object you will be viewing in the center of the Lazy

    Susan. You may want to experiment with backgrounds of different

    colors that highlight your object.
  • Now set up the Mavica camera on the tripod, with the camera

    focused on the object that you will be shooting. Be sure to put a floppy

    disk into the camera. Turn the camera ON. Make needed

    adjustments to the camera or to the object so that the very best view

    is seen of the object through the viewfinder of the camera.
