View Full Version : Tabletop Studio recommendation
Don't know if this is the right section, but I'm looking for a good tabletop studio solution for photographing small to medium sized objects. I picked up one of those portable Lightbox things from Calumet, but it came with no instructions and I have no idea how to unfold it so seams don't show.
So I've given up on that and am looking for a tabletop kit (with lights). I will be shooting with my M8. Can you kind folks point me in the right direction?
Maybe tell us what you are trying to shoot and we can help you out with specifics.

Beuler? You there?
Sorry just got back from a 12 Girl Band concert. I am looking to shoot computer components and peripherals (plus any photo parephenalia I want to put on sale here. I got one of those Calumet light tents that folds flat, but the stinkin' POS came without instructions. I can't find the receipt either so I'm giving it up as a wash.
What I need is a complete kit with lights and the tent that fits on a tabletop and doesn't cost a mint.
OK, I feel stupid. I called Calumet and they explained to me how to unfold the silly thing. However I am still in need of some good tabletop lights. I would prefer halogen based (MR-16 or GB-10 based: I can replace those ligths with cool temp LED bulbs) with built-in tabletop stands; however, flourescent units will do in a pinch.
