Tents are 12" x 12" x 12" and 30" x 30" x 30". The tripod is a normal camera tripod with telescoping legs so it can range from about 12" to 40" tall. The light stands are smaller - probably 12" up to 24". The bulbs are daylight spectrum or "blue" for clarity.
Michelle, I do not have a DLSR. My camera is a Canon Powershot SX160 IS. I do use image stabilizer on it.
That being said. I have used my galaxy tablet to take photos. I used the highest setting for pixels. I go only as close as not to be blurry. (speaking of the tablet) My photos turned out well and the products sold.
Practice with the location of the lights. Practice being steady with the smartphone. Take the photos and then upload and see them as how your customers will see them. After you have some practice using the light box, I think you will be ok. remember to take many views of the product from different angles.
You will do fine. Do not let not having a DLSR hold you back. It did not hold me back. And yes, a DLSR is on my wish list!
Take Care, and be well,
It is a bit tricky, and it will take both some practice and patience. Included were some instructions, which I found to be helpful. There are also numerous YouTube videos illustrating the proper procedure. It is a matter of both folding and twisting to achieve the original, compact disc. I would suggest that you head over to YouTube and search for "how to fold a light tent" and you should find multiple videos. Hope this helps. Just be patient. You'll figure it out and find it to be easy.
yes there is actually two types, you can use the lamps tripods to fit an adaptor for the galaxy s4 (i have the s4 too) http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Smartphone-Blackberry-Motorola-Smartphones/dp/B00E4VPC0Y/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1391014455&sr=8-11&keywords=galaxy+s4+tripod+adapter , or you can use this one that will fit it to any tripod http://www.amazon.com/ChargerCity-Exclusive-Adjustment-Easy-Adjust-Smartphone/dp/B00FE2AJZA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1391014455&sr=8-4&keywords=galaxy+s4+tripod+adapter
Yes, but only for the lights. The plug on the light stands is not compatible nor are the 120 volt bulbs. You would have to use a different light source that is compatible with Middle Eastern electricity standards.
These are not flash lights, they are continuos lighting. The bulbs are somewhat underpowered and therefore I use my own flash lighting system but the rest of the kit, the light tent and stands, are extremely useful for my needs. If you don't have additional lighting and are using only these lights in this kit you would need to do long exposures.
