Anyone tried one these Light Tents from Maplins.
Got one today, reduced from £20 to £10, seems pretty good for a tenner.

Yeah I bought one last time they were on offer, very useful.
Works well although there are better out there for not a lot more...
Now then Peeps, I looked at the one in Maplins and it looks and feels a bit pants (not that my pants look and feel like a tent) I bought one from Viewfinder its excellent
Has anyone else used Viewfinder, and are they reliable?
I used Viewfinder for my white vinyl backdrop. No complaints at all, good service and fast turn around.
Thanks Tony, I'll give them a ring on Monday.
Yes, I have the Maplins one. Only used it a couple of times, doing shots of some jewelery, but it did the job.
im looking for some good mini lights for my light tent. any ideas. cheers
I have the maplins one which I bought some months back. For only a £10 outlay it is ok.
I used to work in Maplin and bought one while I was there. Gotta say it's not much good..
Got mine off Ebay, quite large has separate blue & white BG and folds lastolite like into a flat circulate bag.
Unfortunately doesn't have a name on it.
Ps Similar to the 50cm one one the first page
I think its very good, use it all the time for product photography. And for £10 is a bargain!
I got one last year, got some cheap table lights for it, works ok. Saw a thread here not so long ago on how to make your own, going to give that a try soon. That way I can make the light tent to a decent size.
