I want to get a light tent to photograph small objects for e-commerce use. Objects no bigger than 50cm.
Could anyone recommend the solution to go for? I've been looking at them on warehouseexpress but there are quite a few different ones!

Don't know if its still in their catalogue Ewan but have a look on Maplin's website. Several of us have their version and it works well - and it's cheap!! (sub-£20)
5th item down the page here Ewan - £19.99 + P&P
That wouldn't be big enough Mike - it's only 40cm each side.
eBay can easily be trusted for this kind of thing.
See here for the 80cm version at £20, or
here for the 90cm version at £30.
Look good John. Things have moved on obviously!! Quite fancy the 3' one...
Works very well for a close-up portrait!
Haha! I've been tempted. Usually after a drink or two.
Many thanks John, John & Mike.
I've been looking for some low budget lighting for the tent, Do you have the description of the light on the Maplins site, the website looks as if it has changed.
paid about 20 quid for mine off ebay, and they fold down nice to the size of a reflector, just hope you like ironing ))
I paid about £17 pound for the tent but now need some lighting.
made my own using 1" poly tubing from diy store and some white cotton sheet, about 3ft x 2ft and appx £13 to make. Folds flat too.
What do you use for Lighting ?
Bowens 250w heads at the mo.
Although not using a light tent, this and this were shot with one head and a softbox.
