      I had been using a much larger table for product photography in my studio, however when shooting high end jewelry , I have to go onsite and the other table was just not convenient for travel. This table legs fold and the plexiglas comes off easily , however no need to remove it , just throw it into the van and go. Only issue is getting a strobe underneath it, not much room there.
      This fits perfectly inside a 30" light tent.

          This was a great purchase. We used it to shoot jewelry & other small items. It would be great if it has C-stand pins or something to easily grip it with a stand, but I was able to grip the bar with a griphead & it worked out fine.

                Great construction and I like how I can put lights underneath or behind for special effects. My side lights clamp on the sides easily. The table is great for small product photo shoots or anything that needs a close up shot. It's so lightweight and portable. I been having a great time with this table!

                    I have used this product the past few months and I have to say I like it a lot. First of all it is very portable and the material is very strong so I know it will last very long. The price tag is great for the quality of this product. Will definitely recomend this as a great tabletop studio.

                    Comments about SP Studio Systems Desktop Shooting Table:

                    I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer. I am starting to tap into the product photography realm. This table is a good start for my amatuer abilities. It is small, portable, durable, lightweight. Which is what I need to practice. With all due respect to the product, if I start to pick up higher end clients, this won't do. I appreciate the cost and I'm willing to accept it's flaws in exchange for price. I would be willing to pay a little more for better translucent material. Also, it's really hard to light it from underneath. Would like to see a higher depth frame. But again, for the price and what you get, I am very satisfied and it is what I expected.

                      I ordered this shooting table to shoot various products and others with custom backdrop.

                      The table set up was easy and fast with no hassle. Lighting balanced evenly. It has a very comfortable working height by placing it on a table.
                      I use three 5500K lamps (CFL) and one CN-160 LED light (reasonably flat) from below to eliminate the shadows.
                      The only drawback to the item is not having a bracket or a place on the top portion so that one can easily clamp various backdrops – but not a great problem.

                          Lightweight and very easy to set up. Excellent table top set up. It would be nice if the manufacturer had provided a caring and storing instructions for this product. Upon completion of the project, I have half rolled the plexiglass base and put it in the same box the product came in. I am not sure if this is OK to have the product stay this way for extended period of days and months till the product is taken out for use for the next project.

                                The price performance of this light table is great. The plexiglass is sturdy enough to hold more weight than i was expecting. It held heavy leaded glass sculptures without worry. The legs are far to short. At first i had 3 speedlights illuminating the bottom, all with stofen diffusers and was still not getting even light. Then I put the table on top of saw horses, and zip-tied it down. I was then able to use one speedlight on the ground shooting straight up to evenly illuminate the entire bottom. I used a second speedlight on a straight stand to illuminate the back. The saw horses make this setup look less than professional, but gets the job done.

                                    If you want to shoot small items (less than 12 inches high) with a seamless background, this is a great start. It's easy to set up, easy to clean, and relatively easy to light.

                                    The only problem I have with it is the acrylic surface is just a smidge too long and the horizontal surface is buckled and so nothing sits flat. Depending on the size/shape of your item this might be an issue.

                                      product shots is its use. Hard to light from below, currently building a portable table with a cut out for the light to reach the table. I like the size, not too big.

                                      I ordered this shooting table to shoot the complete products lines of several manufacturers. I shoot RAW, manual focus, 2 sec delay using 2 softboxes with four (4) 5500K lamps in each.
                                      The table set up in minutes with no hassle. Lighting balanced evenly. Placed on top of a table it made for a comfortable working height and products moved on and off with minimal adjustments. Post processing, when used to get a transparent background, was very efficient.
                                      The only drawback to the item is clearance for lighting from below which may not be an issue if smaller lights than I work with are used.

                                                      Save the bubble wrap the Lucite top comes in to take it with you on location. Be careful with hot food on plates, though. Put a pad under the plates.
