    Could also a cut white cloth sheet suffice for the lighted side panels...or would that be too dense and light restrictive? Curious .

    It shouldnt block to much light, i just bought a new thin cotton sheet, costed me 6 euro, the paper 2x 70x50cm 200gramms was about 2.50 euro.
    So just try, it shouldnt be to dense, and you also dont want a rough structure that maybe reflect the cloth pattern on to the object.

    just try Larry

    Ebay has some inexpensive ones that work pretty good.
    This is like the one I use. It comes with the lights and a cheap tripod for $30

    Agree with Greg. I bought my kit this past winter. The "box" was around $30 and came with 3 different color backgrounds and folded for storage. Pretty neat, versatile and well made.

    But I really like the idea of the hole in top

    Thx Greg nice addition to the thread!

    But the big advantage of the cardboard box over your tent is the fact that it has the 100% topview ability and you can make them as big or as small as you want.
