However...it only comes with three background colors: black (no backdrop), gray (not pretty), and bright blue (not very useful). A white backdrop would make all of the difference in the world!
If Sunpak came out with an "upgrade package" for this studio that included more backdrop colors, I would buy it in an instant, and my studio would be complete.
Yes, the lights are a little weak. But for the price they are fine. The reviewer that said 70% of the light reflects off the outside of the box is correct.
That is called "light diffusion." Different fabric that lets more light through will cause the light to concentrate at the source, giving you shadows you don't want. Isn't that why you bought the box?
So you should be encouraged that the product works the way it should. I use my wife's very long sewing/quilting table for this--best advantage is that she has this nifty Ott-Lite natural color light that is quite bright and adds just enough light to the tent to let me speed up the shot and get some depth and very natural color and texture.
I recommend, if you have an Ott-Lite for some other hobby, finding a way to use its light to supplement the diffuse light from the supplied lights in the package.
I do not use the mini-tripod included in the kit. I use my own tripod, either in mini or tall configuation depending on the shot I'm going for.
So since I'm using some of my previously-owned gear, you could say I got this product just for the tent. I like the translucence of the lightbox fabric. It's very good at what it's intended to do--give you shots without shadows you didn't want. You'll be surprised at the detail you are able to capture that you couldn't before.
Highly recommended over similar competing products.
I wish I knew all of this before purchasing this product. I've been using it for over three months and get more disappointed and annoyed each time I use it.
Will this product satisfy your needs? Read on and see.
1. The lights get very hot. The directions say to use them for only 20 minutes then shut them off and let them cool down before using again. This does not fit with my projects in which I'm taking a series of photos for an hour or two in one session. I didn't realize this time limitation at first (since I hadn't seen the printed warning) and the lights began to emit smoke and a smell!
2. The lights are top heavy. They tip over very easily. The weight of their power cord is enough to tip them over. You have to be very careful to lay the power cords out in a certain way so they don't fall over. For example when the power cord is going down to a wall outlet, the weight of the cord pulls and causes the light to tip over. The weight of the cords also caused the lights to slowly slide across the table all by themselves as I worked. I even had a hard time keeping them pointed in the direction I wanted due to the slippery feet sliding from the cord weight. If the legs were heavier or had a tackier bottom surface, this would not happen! Numerous times when the lights fell and I instinctively grabbed for them I was burned by accidentally touching the hot parts.
3. The two lights that came with my kit emit different light. One is a blue cast and the other is whiter. One is brighter than the other. This is not good when trying to have even light from both sides!
4. There is not enough light thrown with these two lights.Read more ›
