At first this item looked like a good idea at a reasonable price ($35).  I do not have much space at home  but I want to learn how to photograph small objects.



The tent is decent and the portability is excellent. However, the lights are woefully underpowered and the bulbs create uneven color casts. The tripod is flimsy. I guess I need to buy other lights at a local home builder's store ;-)

You could try this device:

I ordered one out of curiosity (haven't received it yet). You can either buy the stand as well, or just use a piece of foam board for the bottom.


From the reviews of the light tent you're looking at, it seems that the tripod is useless and the lights are too weak.

Just my 2 cents--it isn't worth the $35.  I bought one.  It is easy to set up but very flimsy as in the slightest movement of the table or any vibration will knock the set up over.  The lights are extremely weak.  I could get better lighting holding a flashlight than the set provided.  I promptly returned it.  Most of the products I've tried that were made by Digital Concepts have not been worth the money spent, including the memory card reader.
