Voted hot, be good for the dedicated Ebayers!

Just what i was looking for. Thanks.

Coming up at £24.16 for the cheapest delivery

Looks good, good price.

Its very small... what are you taking pictures of for this? Not voted either way.

no free pp?

these are ok but watch the bulbs ours were 50w gu10 which melted the plastic surrounds on the bulb stands tesco do 35w bulbs which give a good light with less heat

I've seen plenty posts/blogs describing how to make a lightbox cheap using a card board box etc but this interests me more as it can be packed away and stored easily. Pity it's so small when set up though.

Bought this off eBay only last month for £30, so good deal, espeically if you are to top up to £50 for free delivery.

It would be decent if it was human sized, but expensive for a couple of desk lamps and a couple of bits of material.

Like it says in the advert "perfect for ebay".
If you're selling a lot of small items on ebay and want a simple easily controllable photographic setup this would do a good enough job.

Great price for the kit.

High powered photography lamps are not the same as your usual 40W desk lamps. They will get very hot in operation and will provide a whiter, much brighter light.

Like you, I have read about the DIY boxes, and have even made one.

All I can say is that I have ordered one of the ebuyer ones as it is portable (where can you store a decent sized cardboard box without it getting dirty/damp/played with) includes lamps ( two cheap desk lamps don't really work for me) and includes camera stand which means I don't need to set up my decent tripod.

Thanks OP, good spot - have some heat - I'll get mine from the lamps!

White.

£24.16 inc cheapest delivery.

Not bad considering the cheapest on ebay is £28.95

Voted HOT!

Very little information about the lights... Calling them "photography" lights in meaningless. But for a very basic home setup (e.g. rare eBay items, etc) it seems just fine. Price is a little high for what it is.

That all being said, I myself find such professional photos on unprofessional eBay accounts suspicions like they have lifted the photos of the item from a third party. So don't be surprised if on an account with relatively low seller activity, if high end photos actually reduce your ability to sell your goods.

Might get one of these for my online store, rather than using the generic supplier supplied ones. Should be ideal with my bottles being roughly 20-25cm high you would think

I know, but they don't say what they are apart from high powered lamps. I built a light tent from stuff I had lying around - some net curtains and a couple of halogen spots on the outside - and it works very well. The only thing I had to buy was some white card for the floor/background (with offcuts for reflecters). Different numbers of layers allow me to control shadows etc very nicely indeed.

this really looks cheap! wouldn't waste you're money!
better off with some LED lighting off ebay for £20-30!

has no one heard of using large white bits of card?

If you are doing your own set-up and are using a desk lamp with a 'normal' (tungsten) bulb, be sure to adjust the white balance in your camera. Choose 'tungsten' or the little light bulb icon to get true colours, otherwise it will look orange!

Good Price

Cool

Wanderer says these are normal GU10 mains halogen lamps and for that price you're not going to get anything more sophisticated. As you say, they're absolutely fine for illuminating objects for snapshots.

Got some heat from me. Yes I can make my own.. but as someone above said.. storage issues, damp cardboard boxes.. etc etc.. I only need it for macro photos so this will suit me well. thanks OP.

should be just the job for starting out as i am. Heat added

Hot...ordered one... as I really can`t be bothered to go down the Blue Peter route.

I have one, it's not too bad but it's probably not good enough for very professional photographs. The white background isn't fully opaque and it's not 100% fool proof with regards to hiding the joins where you 'build' the box. I use it for a few beauty bits for my website but that's about it.

Nice link to diy build of your own mini photo studio

Bought one for my son as he has just started doing Lego stop motion, so small is beautiful.

She might get a bit stuck with exposures!

I have one of these and it's only really suitable for tiny objects like jewellery and other similar sized items. It's a fiddle to setup if you only have one thing to shoot and with the lower wattage bulbs there is not enough diffuse light to illuminate the item properly. I've taken to just using two big A0 mount boards from HobbyCraft prop them at right angles to each other as it's quicker to setup and teardown, plus they're always ready just sitting behind my desk.

At £20 though it's a lot less than what I paid so technically it's hot! X)

I'm with the people who DIY the lighttent and then spend money on decent quality lights...

A mate uses a pop-up laundry basket, some white cotton sheeting (as a light mask) and construction paper (as backing) and it works because he has 2 really bright and even spots (which do cook the place a bit!!)

is there an easy to use green screen program i can get to work with this?

express digital used to be a big name. just searched and landed on this which has 'shoot greenscreen' in its spiel. So maybe its ready to roll.

I do not know much about this stuff...not even selections in PS or with OnOne plugins.

then again i think latest PS has a 'decolour edge' option or something in its selections.

Price gone back to £27.99 + p&p already!
