SHOTBOX is a portable, collapsible, photography light box that fits on your kitchen table providing excellent photography lighting with built-in high-powered LED lights. PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY: The addition of the SideShot extension and infinity Backdrop Kit provides soft and seamless backgrounds for taking pictures of products and collectibles. The SHOTBOX product photography kit was designed for taking professional product photography. FAMILY HISTORY: Engineered with holes in the top of the light box to enable “top down” photography of family photos, journals, and scrapbooks with an iPhone, Android, tablet or DSLR camera. Thereby; cutting time required digitizing these items and render scanners obsolete. Unlike any other photo light box, SHOTBOX was built to last. Different from a typical light tent or shooting tent, this portable light box is made of durable injection molded plastic and is rigid compared to a low-quality product photography tent. Engineered for light box photography.

But the Shotbox seems to be optimized for cellphone photos, not full-sized cameras. The built-in lights are insufficient for my DSLR. I typically end up having to put a standalone flash inside the box (on a light trigger), AND a second flash on my camera. Otherwise I have to crank up the ISO and/or exposure time to get an adequate exposure.
All in all, this thing seems like a toy. If you're shooting product photos for online use only (not print), it's probably fine. For my use, which does include high-res closeups of electronic circuit assemblies for printed manuals, the Shotbox is not better than a curved posterboard backdrop, because both these solutions require careful placement of multiple additional light sources to get adequate shots.
They've kind of thought of everything....it really is "all-inclusive". I sell die cut, vinyl stencils, so I lay them flat and take an over head shot. I not have very consistent photos, each one is the same and very clean and well lit. Because of the material I use, glare is an issue with direct lighting. The glare shields are genius. They attach via magnets to the screws that hold the lighting to the top of the box. Snap right in place and pull right off when not needed - simple and perfect design and eliminates all the glare and reflection from the glossy finish of the vinyl and backing paper.
The Sideshot is cool too. I didn't realize it at first, but it has more LEDs built in it as well, so it adds more lighting to the box, even when not actually using it to take photos. The little cord that attaches the box to the Sideshot (and provides power for the lighting) appears to be not easily replaceable (like a standard micro USB or something) so be careful not to lose it. The built in USB to charge your phone is nice feature.
The dimming feature doesn't have a huge range, it goes from bright to "off" pretty quick, but it's a LIGHT box, not a dark box...so doubt you'd need a variety of dim light settings. Wish the power cord was just a little longer. When on a table, this has to be pretty close to an outlet (or power strip, etc).
My Note 5 takes awesome pictures, and I've had no issues with the LEDs effecting the lens or anything. I'm using typical factory settings on my phone (like I said, I'm no pro). Still need to be prepared to do some minor editing though, specifically cropping, etc...especially for larger items to crop out the sides of the box.
The backdrops hook on the back very easily and seem to work well. Would love to see more background options in the future, even as a paid add-on. Would be really cool if the backdrop spanned more than just 90 degrees and wrapped around, closer to 180. That would help with the pictures of larger items catching the sides of the box.
The break down and setup is very quick and easy. It isn't "cheap" but it not super strong when assembled. The box will shake a little when manipulating your phone, whether resting on top of on the Sideshot. I'm also not sure you'd "mount" an SLR to use with the top picture holes.
Overall, I'm very happy....it's going to take my products photos on my website to a new level and really takes the need to be a professional photographer out of the equation. I could hand this to my son, tell him to set it up and take a picture with this phone and it would turn out great.
As far as price: $200 is pretty steep. It was originally listed for $140 when first released I think, and I kicked myself for not jumping on it then. I got lucky and waited to see if the price would go back down...eventually I found one sold directly by SHOTBOX (on Amazon, but not Prime or fulfilled by Amazon) for $145ish. That price I was much more comfortable with and am happy with my purchase. Was a necessary investment for my website.
