Nice Photo Studio Kit - Except for Missing Part,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Polaroid Photo Studio Light Tent Kit, Includes 1 Tent, 2 Lights, 1 Tripod Stand, 1 Carrying Case, 4 Backdrops (Black, Blue, White, Red) (Camera)
This suits my purposes of taking photos for selling items online. Fast and easy to set up. The lighting is fine for me. However, the black foot for the tripod stand was missing from the package, I received two silver rods that the camera attach to instead. For that reason, I am only giving four stars. I have had to return this, but I will be re-ordering this, and keeping my fingers crossed the package contains all of the right parts. I've read complaints on other seller sites about the lights getting hot - well yes they do. Lights get hot - I don't know why that is a surprise. Another complaint I have read is that the backdrops are wrinkled/have fold lines. Obviously, they are shipped folded so there will be lines that need ironed out. Again, not sure why this is a surprise. No big deal to break out the iron and neaten them up. This is a nice little set up, and other than the missing part, I am pleased with it.

You mention that the backdrops are wrinkled and that you could iron them. Did you actually iron them? If so was it successful? The wrinkles are stopping me using this product - but I'm nervous to take the iron to the backdrops! Thanks!

I don't have this product yet, so I don't know the kind of material used in the backdrops. You might try taking them to a dry cleaner to be pressed. Otherwise, if you are not going to use them, you have nothing to lose by ironing them with a press cloth, starting with a low heat setting until you see how the material responds. I wouldn't use steam unless nothing else works. There are also sprays that give body to material when ironed. I find that a small amount of spray helps with stubborn wrinkles. One product is Magic Sizing. Good luck.
