I’m just passing along a little tidbit I found and thought some of you might like to hear about it. Many of us struggle with photography and our projects. Well, here is a little gem that just might help. It is a small photo studio which would be perfect for those small projects and might help with those large ones too. I get e-mails from this company often and was delighted to find this pop up. It is the Merax One Shot Portable Photo Studio (Mini Portable Studio) Lighting Box Kit. it contains a 22” Nylon photo soft light box (folds into slim carry case), 2 high-output (3200K lamps) table top lights provide a professional studio atmosphere, an adjustable camera stand (10-17” high), a reversible background cloth, and a CD containing; ArcSoft PhotoStudio application and ArcSoft PhotoStudio Darkroom application. I’ve ordered one myself and it should be here next week. I’ll try to let you all know how it looks when I get it. Now here’s the best part it’s only $39.99 and NO shipping charges. Not sure why it’s such a good price but it is. Hope it’s useful to ya here is the link:
It’s arrived via FEDEX and here is what we have…
Out of the box..
Lights and camera stand store in the outside of the photo box…
The instructions…very simple
The lights are very simple to set up pull the legs out of the bottom and they are ready…
The camera stand is also simple a knob screw in the bottom of the post screws off then through the feet..
The box is all Velcro set up and easy as pie, add the camera and your ready to go.
Now, some test pictures of a box I recently finished.
Now compare these to my original photos with out the studio, the colors in the studio photos are much, much better.
Overall I’d say for $40.00 it is well worth it for those small projects like my music box. Everything works great and the photo quality is much better than without. So, for those lumberjocks who are into the small stuff and like quality photos, I recommend it. :>)
I haven’t looked at the included software, and probably won’t since I own Paint Shop Pro X2, you really can’t get much better than that, and another note I didn’t do any touching up of the sample pics, taken with my Olympus FE-5010fe 12 Mega Pixal camera. Thanks for listening, ah reading :>)
