I Like It,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cowboystudio 24-Inch Photography Tent Studio Light Box/Tent (Electronics)
I like this light box. Price was right at only $30, pretty fast shipping. One of the best parts about it is it folds up into a flat square. I can hide it in my closet or behind a table easily. It surprised me with how large it was upon opening.
Like another reviewer I was temporarily perplexed at setup. I didn't think it would be too complicated, but after a minute or so I figured it out. The black part with the 3 pouches goes on the top, having this knowledge really helped out with setup because now I knew what was up and what was supposed to be down.
There's a velvet like surface on one side of the backgrounds but it won't hide wrinkles. You'll have to iron it out. My Ebay items are so cheap I don't care enough to iron it so I just leave them there.
I bought two inexpensive lamps from Walmart (40 watt bulbs) and put them on either side. I don't know if it's my lights that are weak or whether the sides of this unit are thick, but I had trouble illuminating my subject as bright as I wanted. I know this was a complaint with the standard lights that are supposed to come with this unit, which is why I decided to purchase this light box by itself (without the lights).
In the future I'll use my 100 watt lamp on one side to see how much better it fares and maybe do an update to this review. I like to fold up the different color backgrounds and store it in the little pouches on the side of the light box. So convenient. The only thing I would do, is add a carry handle to the top for easier transport. That would have been really nice.
