Product Description

Product Description

The PhotoSEL PPC146 Product Photography Kit is an ideal solution for tabletop, small object and e-commerce applications. It includes a PhotoSEL LS12E42 Studio Lighting Kit and a PhotoSEL LT164 80cm Light Tent.

If you have been trying to shoot pictures with an accurate colour representation of the items you are photographing, it is very likely that you have been relying on special filters and/or software editing to improve the results. With the PhotoSEL LS12E42 Lighting Kit, this may well be a thing of the past. Rather than providing inferior quality 6400K 50-80 CRI light bulbs, this kit includes two high quality 5500K 90+ CRI fluorescent light bulbs. Set-up is easy: plug the lights in, place them on the table, and turn them on. The result is 5500K light output that's ideal for taking digital shots by collectors, arts and crafts hobbyists, sellers, archivists, and desktop publishers. The lighting kit can also be used for DV talking head shots, digital still portraits, and webcam desktop video conferencing.

Each LS12E42 lighting kit comes supplied with two 55W 5500K 90+ CRI 3000lm daylight fluorescent light bulbs. Also included are two 22cm reflectors, two power cables with in-line switch and two 80-190cm light stands.

Using direct lighting for product photography can cause harsh dark shadowing and unpleasant reflections particularly on shiny objects. The 100% top quality velvet fabric of the PhotoSEL Light Tent gently diffuses the light from your light source, evenly illuminating your object inside and eliminating any unwanted shadows. The light tent can be lit from the sides, back, top and, with a glass, or suitable light table, the bottom. Its detachable front door cover incorporating a slit for your camera lens is particularly useful when photographing highly reflective objects such as glassware.

Four high quality background cloths, one black, one white, one blue and one red, are also included in the package. These can be positioned inside the light tent using velcro fasteners and will cover the back and floor of the light tent. Thanks to its stainless steel spring frame the PhotoSEL Light Tent can be popped-up in a matter of seconds, and once you're done simply fold it flat and store it in the pouch provided or take it with you to your next photo-shoot location.

First and foremost, this PhotoSEL product adds to the truth of the fact that you get what you pay for. It is quite a little bit more expensive than other solutions on offer here at Amazon, but the quality does shine through [pun intended].

On the plus side: good and sturdy construction; excellent quality from the provided lamps (can't speak to lifespan yet) and in general terms the set-up and use are very straightforward.

However, there are a couple of areas that I'd encourage PhotoSEL to put a bit more effort. They are likely going to sound like trivial things, but trust me, when you've used this a few times, you'll realise that they are pretty important. First: getting everything to fit back inside the shipping box is a real challenge. Can you please make this a *lot* simpler. This is an expensive, quality piece of kit, and it makes sense customers will want to pack it safely away when not in use. Mine shipped with part of the offering (the multi-colour inserts) outside the main box. Why? Why not just make it so that it all stows neatly inside the shipping case. I would have gladly paid an extra £10-£15 for a properly re-usable storage box. [ In fairness, they do ship a custom-made carry hold-all, but again, it's a bit of a squeeze].

Next, the inserts (and the cell cloth, for that matter). These are all shipped to you folded, compressed and scrunched down into the tiniest possible space. The creases are so bad that the chances are you will have to do what I did, and spend an evening literally ironing them out. Not much fun, especially when you realise you will have to do this each time you un-pack from a period of storage...

A good quality product that makes catalogue pictures easy. The lights are particularly important in such an application and they did not let me down. I would recommend it.

Without doubt the worst item bought here to date. Opens up ok but don't expect to get the box back into the cover. As well as needing a degree to repack my attempts have ruined the frame in my countless attempts to fold away . Light came and again cheap plastic broke immediately. Relegated this to the bin where it deserves to stay.

Great seller - item received on time, and very well packaged. Very pleased with the quality of the lights. The light tent is fairly creased, and not sure if these will fall out eventually or not? There are no instructions, especially how to fold the tent up when not in use, so therefore giving 4 out of 5. Having lots of fun using the equipment, with good results.
