Good photos but TERRIBLE storage!
on July 12, 2013
This 40 inch cube does provide great lighting for photographing my pottery. However, it is difficult to keep the backdrops clean, wrinkle-free, and free of lint. Sometimes it is easier to remove the lint in Photoshop. Based on this alone I would give the product 4 stars.
However, the product does not come with instructions. Calling the company was useless. I found some videos on YouTube that were helpful. Each time I use the product I have to watch the YouTube video again before folding the product for storage. Folding is confusing and very physical - and even with the video I am often unsuccessful. After a few foldings the fabric along the metal stays is tearing. Perhaps the small light tents are easier to fold. This one is a bear! Given that the fabric is deteriorating, I now simply flatten the tent and store in that manner. This takes a lot of storage room. This tent would only be useful if you could leave it set-up all the time.
Save yourself much frustration and avoid this product. I consider this a poor investment on a product that is poorly supported.
