MyStudio is a completely new, unique and superior approach to tabletop product photography. Unlike other tabletop systems that fold, collapse and/or have seams that have to be edited out later, MyStudio features a fixed radius, single piece hard cyclorama background. This provides a high quality, seamless infinity background without compromising shooting angles which until now was only available in larger professional photo studios. The lighting systems included with each MyStudio are customized specifically for each studio resulting in perfect lighting every time. This is different from other systems that simply include standard lights which must be positioned individually. MyStudio systems are priced competitively with the less professional tabletop systems yet provide superior results. MyStudio is the absolute best all-in-one lighting and background solution for product photography, ebay auction photography and any other small item photography. This revolutionary tabletop photo studio enables even the most inexperienced person to take professional product photos every time! MyStudio 20 features a unique seamless cyclorama ("cyc") background with curved corners and a complete color-corrected "daylight" lighting system featuring 5000K fluorescent lighting. Just place your product inside the studio, turn on the light and snap your picture with any standard digital camera. No flash or prior photographic experience is required. Your product will appear evenly lit in perfect color against a heavenly, seamless white background.
From the Manufacturer
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but for catalog and online retailers, eBay power sellers and product manufacturers, a good product photo can be worth much, much more. In fact, a good photo is arguably the single most important element in selling your product. If a customer cannot touch the products you are selling, they must rely on your photos, and your photos must accurately communicate value that they will be willing to pay for. Studies have actually shown that customers are often willing to pay more for products with attractive, professional quality photos because it engenders a type of trust between them and the seller. Conversely, poor product photos tend to create just the opposite feeling and can turn potential customers away.
MyStudio products are designed to provide a high quality, professional photo solution at an affordable price; one that can be used by amateur and professional photographers alike to create fantastic product photos with a minimum amount of expense and effort.
MyStudio 20 Highlights
20 x 20 x 12-inch seamless cyclorama infinity background Providing the perfect white infinity background for product photography is what the MyStudio 20 cyc background is all about. The 90-degree corner design optimizes your shooting angles and provides a maximum 27 inches of background width from left to right, 24 inches deep and 12 inches high.
Designed and manufactured by Pro Cyc, Inc. The worlds leading designer and manufacturer of modular cyclorama backgrounds for large television and film studios, Pro Cyc engineered the MyStudio 20 tabletop cyc background. The MyStudio 20 background features a lightweight, durable standalone cyc with a 90-degree corner and a seamless floor to wall cove radius that runs the entire length of the cyc. This means there are no seams that have to be edited out later, and it provides an easy-to-light infinity background that allows your subject to be photographed in the perfect setting every time. Whether you are an online or catalog retailer, eBay power seller, toy collector, or documenting items for insurance purposes or any number of other applications, the MyStudio 20 cyclorama is the perfect background for small item photography.
5000K color-corrected "daylight" continuous lighting system Talk to any good photographer and they will affirm that proper lighting is one of the single most important aspects of taking a good photograph. MyStudio 20 solves this problem for you by including a complete continuous lighting system that takes all the guesswork and expense out of the lighting dilemma.
The customized lighting kit that comes with MyStudio 20 was designed by a professional product photographer with over 25 years of experience in catalog product photography. It features a 15-watt, 5000K ("daylight") color-corrected fluorescent bulb with a CRI of 92 which provides strong, accurate full-spectrum lighting that will bring out the true colors and fine details of your product. The light is installed on an adjustable height aluminum stand and comes with 3 light reflectors (one overhead "ceiling" reflector and two 9" x 12" side bounce cards). This allows you many different options when lighting your subject and ensures that there will be plenty of continuous, accurate and even lighting all around.
Everything but the camera
MyStudio 20 comes with everything you need to produce fantastic, professional quality photographs right out of the box. Until now, the combination of the professional quality infinity background and continuous 5000K lighting that is found in the MyStudio complete tabletop photo studios could only be replicated in a professional photo studio at much greater expense. No longer. In essence, each MyStudio system is a miniature replica of a much larger professional cyclorama photography studio. While large studios certainly have their place and are necessary for larger applications, it can cost tens of thousands of dollars or more to build and properly light such a space. The average photographer and online entrepreneur just dont have that kind of budget, nor do they require such a large studio for the majority of their photographic needs. Thats where the MyStudio portable photography studio comes in. At a fraction of the cost, now everyone can take professional quality photos with almost any camera and very little experience. If great looking professional photos would help your business in any way, then you can't afford to not have your own MyStudio system. Just as digital cameras have eliminated the need for film, MyStudio virtually eliminates the need for expensive lighting and studio backgrounds.
Designed and manufactured in the USA by Pro Cyc, Inc., the MyStudio line of tabletop photo studio products derives its design and inspiration from Pro Cycs world leading modular cyclorama studio backgrounds. Since 1987 Pro Cyc has been providing custom cyclorama ("cyc") infinity background solutions which are currently used by virtually every major television network (CNN, NBC, CNBC, ESPN, FOX, etc.), film studios, photographers and videographers worldwide for green screen, blue screen and countless other applications that require an infinity background.
To design MyStudio, Pro Cyc drew on their experience and success at creating seamless infinity backgrounds for the large studio industry and applied the same technology and expertise to this revolutionary line of cyclorama-based tabletop studio products intended for use by both professional photographers and amateurs alike. Add to that a color-corrected 5000K lighting system that was designed by a professional product photographer with over 25 years of experience and the result is line of tabletop studio products that deliver unparalleled results at an affordable price. The best feature of all, however, is that virtually anyone with a standard digital camera can take fantastic photos, because with MyStudio the barrier to professional quality photos has just been erased.

This is a great kit, but I also purchased the $150 accessory 2 x 5000k light kit, and the extra lights make a big difference for my use, which is shooting clear glass perfume bottles and intricate crystal pieces.
The extra lights can be used to vastly improve the results you get by using the front-only lighting that comes with this setup. They can be used for both side and back lighting, both of which are important in better defining glass edges and enhancing details. Your pic will "pop" much better with the two extra lights, although you'll still have to play around a lot to get comfortable with the setup and begin taking useful stats. I usually take at least 100 photos to yield one or two usable product images.
For jewelry, but especially for diamonds, you should purchase and use the metal halide/tungsten halogen bulbs which are used as overhead lights in high end jewelry stores. Fortunately, I don't need them for my purposes.
In general, if you are taking photos of products with a lot of intricate detail, or of high end products, you should not expect to be able to use your cell phone's camera to take great photos that can be used on a higher quality website. For this purpose, you'll likely need to use a good DSLR camera, or even better.
What I did not like was they included a letter inside the package that you could get a free replacement bulb IF AND ONLY IF YOU GAVE A 5 STAR REVIEW. You had to email them and let them know, and give your username so they could verify. This is shady because now I am wondering how many reviews were not really 5 star, they just wanted the free gift. I rely on reviews for every purchase so it is a little misleading and disappointing.
I'm a graphic designer who takes a lot of his own photos, to the extend of designing and building a couple of product-imaging studios for kinda big names (watches of a Scandinavian theme, hint, hint - for one). I've purchased, set up and used the "industry standard" Bogen tables and lighting for a few thousand product shots. This little corner and light are on par with the "professional" stuff for over 90% of the things I've shot.
Well packaged, promptly shipped. Read the instructions for assembly - but it goes together very well, and is solid once assembled.
This kit is a very good starting point -- but you will quickly "need" a few more pieces.
This size is perfect for items up to about 12" square.
Take the time to watch the video - if you've never shot using an infinite wall or table then you will find it invaluable.
You WILL want a tripod. There is no point of lighting a product to perfection - then screwing it up by shooting handheld and shakey.
Experiment before you start trying to shoot "production" shots - there are some basic lighting and posing concepts that are easier to learn by doing it yourself and "playing". Find some shots from the web or magazines that your'd like to emulate - and try to reproduce them using your own products.
You will want some supplemental lighting - bouncing a big diffuse light off the back, behind the product will really brighten up your shots. Play with bouncing light onto specific parts of your product to bring out highlights. The included bounce cards are serviceable.
Mainly though - just play. You will absolutely NOT shoot great shots on the first, or even 50th try. But if you keep trying different things (and spend some time on YouTube) - you will have pro quality shots before you know it.
One thing to remember as you are getting frustrated by the process (and you will) -- anymore, MOST of the work in product photography is in Photoshop, compositing a bunch of shots, each capturing a specific part of the product as you'd like it. A watch photo would be 10 minutes of posing it, 10 minutes of taking a bunch of photos - each with different lighting and highlighting, and an hour stitching it all together in PS.
The MyStudio setup helps you produce a much better product image in a much shorter amount of time. The LimoStudio images required lots of color correction and exposure compensation, plus lots of time dodging the background to achieve anything near an even white.
I use a Nikon D3200 and even after spending a lot of time manually adjusting the white balance and ISO could not get the quality results that I got "out of the box" with the MyStudio.
The LimoStudio uses two or four lights depending on the kit you buy. In my case four lights failed to provide enough light - and it's nearly impossible to align the lights in a way to get even illumination and not hot spots. Conversely the MyStudio MS20 uses a single light which is reflected evenly.
The MS20 comes with an instructional DVD with helpful tips on product photography, where you're left on your own with the LimoStudio.
To get image quality anywhere near the MyStudio using the LimoStudio you have to spend lots of time manipulating files in Adobe Lightshop and Photoshop. If you're unwilling or unable to do this, I'd skip the LimoStudio entirely.
This is the "you get what you pay for" thing. You can save money with the LimoStudio but you'll spend hours trying to get your images to look decent.
