Spend a bit more money to get the better light box kit!!!
on June 16, 2014
On the Pro side......this set is inexpensive for what is included. The setup is easy, all the bits and pieces were included. Delivered quickly. That's about it.
On the Con side........I've only used the white cloth but it is VERY thin...it's see-through. I have to put another white board underneath it so you don't see the table I'm working on through the fabric. It attracts hair, lint, dirt, like nothing I've ever seen, They should include a lint brush along with the studio. The panels DO NOT fit on the box so that you have no show-through of the black background. I have tweaked and moved and rearranged till my fingers hurt and I still have black showing up in my pictures....hence more post-photo shoot editing.
The lights.........in one word, the lights suck. There is no height adjustment on the light models included in the set I bought so I have to prop them up on books to make them taller. And you can only use them for ONE HOUR!!! There is actually a disclaimer sticker on the lights advising to only use them for an hour at a time. In fact, I am writing this review while I wait for my lights to cool down so I can get back to work! WHO ONLY PHOTOGRAPHS FOR AN HOUR!!! Don't even get me started on the smell of burning plastic or how they get SO hot you can barely turn them off. I will now buy another set of lights to use with the backdrops.
Sigh....this is what I get for trying to save a buck.
