Re: light tent

There are lots of these available from e-bay, and provided it is big enough for you it looks fine. It looks like the backdrop extends along the floor of the tent too, which is better than just having a vertical backdrop on the back wall of the tent.

Could not comment on the value for money as I don't know what the exchange rate is.

Re: light tent

I've got one. they are great for the price. two problems with them though. One is that the backdrops get creased easilly secondly you need to be an octupus to pack it away again - although u do learn a knack.

Other than that they are excellent for doing product photography and the like.

Re: light tent

I've had one for a couple of weeks now. Was going to make something but mine cost me 10.98 delivered from a uk seller so it wasn't worth my time to make it. It's a good size (80cm cube), comes with 4 colours of backdrop which cover the base as well as the back, and a carry case/cover included.
Very pleased with it - one tip, wash the backdrops and let them dry spread out to get rid of the fold creases.
