Product Highlights
  • 20 x 20 x 12" (51 x 51 x 30.5 cm)
  • Perfect for Small Product Photography
  • Includes 5000K Lighting

The Internet has changed the retail environment forever. The world of online sales has exploded, eliminating tedious print ads and phone calls and offering the average person the opportunity to become a sell-it-yourself, start-up business. The MyStudio® line of Tabletop Photo Studios for Product Photography from Pro Cyc wants to help.

Until now the weak link has been the photography. It's been proven time and again that better photos equal more sales, and to complete the equation, higher selling prices. Quality images, especially those depicting open shadows and precise detail, add to the "perceived value" of your item, assuring the prospective buyer that he's choosing a well cared-for product.

Enter MyStudio® with a great line of mini-cycloramas that include lighting. Wrinkled seamless paper and time-intensive, post-production retouching are things of the past. Instead, your product seems to float in infinity on a clean, white background. The overhead light source is a color-balanced, digital-friendly 5000K fluorescent fixture on an adjustable stand, which wraps light around your objects and can be further directed with the supplied bounce cards.

Made in several sizes from 20 to 64 inches in width, MyStudio® solves the field-of-view problems evident in photo tents when the edges of the background appear in your image. Whether you're shooting coins, jewelry, cosmetics, objects d'art, electronics, car parts or handbags, there's a MyStudio® Tabletop Cyc Kit to fit your needs.

The MyStudio® 20 Tabletop Studio measures 20 x 20 x 12" (51 x 51 x 30.5 cm), and is ideally suited to small object photography, especially those which fall within the close-focus or macro range of most lenses.

      I have been frustrated with trying to take pictures of the card games I manufacture. The MS20 was easy to use and created a great outcome. It was nessesary to adjust the contrast to get the background to be pure white, but after that the pictures were great. One of my products has gold foil printing on the box front and side and it is difficult to get even lighting that reflects and highlights the gold foil look. Using the side panels I was able to reflect light up onto the box at different agles to show off the Gold foil logo's without causing odd highlights other places.

      Just assembled MS20 tabletop. First thing that I did not like was the letter inside the package with the offer for free lamp replacement if I will write 5-star review and visit some link (for fake traffic?). Overall it felt like their marketing letter was written by ex-scammer. I guess after this review I am not qualified for the offer ;). Whole studio is big disappointment. In addition to weak structure my two main concerns are: light is not bright and tray is gets marked very easy. I guess they using some very cheap chinese lamps that cost a penny. And it performs like it costs a penny. I had to use 3 additional light sources to get the acceptable light. Second problem is that the tray is poor quality as well and I already got 2 black scratches inside the tray after slight touch from additional source light. And I had to use additional light because the light from lamp was not enough.Anyway, I will be returning the studio and will start searching for another solution (most likely home-made studio from parts).

          I use the MS20 tabletop studio to record collectibles for inventory and insurance purposes. The MS20 does all the manufacturer claims...and more! Extremely easy to set up. Ready to use in about 10 minutes! And...it works! The light, especially as reflected by the enclosed reflector cards, really makes the finest details visible. Fantastic for recording silver hallmarks and old manufacturing marks! I had been looking for something that would do the job I needed at a reasonable cost. Purchasing the MS20 from B&H was the perfect solution at a great price!

          Comments about MyStudio MS20 Tabletop Photo Studio Kit with 5000K Lighting:

          I was an electrical designer so I have a lot of experience assembling delicate electrical equipment. With the reflector installed on the fixture, it is difficult to position the unit so that you can see the tabs on both sides of the fixture cover at the same time when re-installing after assembly. I broke one set of tabs. Also, I had to run a tap through two of the 1/4-20 holes on the legs which were probably clogged with paint. Never-the-less, I am very happy with the photographic results I am getting.

            I use this for my website photos. I love the compact design it's easily assembled.

            It was a little difficult threading the screws through the predrilled holes. But other than that it was fairly simple.

              I photograph high end jewelry and this studio offers exactly what I need to get an exceptional close up shot.
              The DVD that comes with the studio provided great instruction on setting up the studio and some examples of how to photograph using the studio
              I would highly recommend this product. In fact, a photographer friend and I were working on some photos and he is planning to order one for his studio.
              Storage may be a bit of an issue as the base is a solid structure, so you do need to have the space to store it or keep it out...having said that, with the amount of use you will get from this studio, you will not want to put it away!!

              Use for close up photography
              Haven't been able to find the correct angle to shoot, can't shoot overhead / straight down, easily
              want to photograph jewelry as it lays on plexiglass.
              Don't like the white boards, to flimsy and not as versatile as I would like
              The studio itself is nice (good for photographing small items, to display on selling websites etc.)
              Easy to assemble
              Nice light, but you definitely should invest in another light source.
              Hard to store, takes up a bit of room

                            The My Studio is a photography studio for a tabletop. My wife sells jewelry on the web and I didn't want huge lights and a big backdrop in my house. It is very adjustable and adaptable to almost any photographic situation you might encounter and the photos are great. i have called the customer service number at the company several times and they are extremely helpful.

It was nessesary to adjust the contrast to get the background to be pure white, but after that the pictures were great. One of my products has gold foil printing on the box front and side and it is difficult to get even lighting that reflects and highlights the gold foil look. Using the side panels I was able to reflect light up onto the box at different agles to show off the Gold foil logo's without causing odd highlights other places.

                                Absolutely as advertised for studio use, with one exception – lighting could be more powerful. However, I find that after assembled, the lighting unit does not travel well...and it's cumbersome to disassemble for transport and reassemble on location. All said, the 3-dimentional infinity platform and white cards perform admirably. It is easily configured to render a well-lighted image for tabletop captures.

                                      This is a great kit for taking product shots. I have shot two products with this set and have gotten great feed back from the pictures I took. I recommend this for anyone with a good camera looking to take really nice product shots. I only wish there were extensions you could add to make the kit longer or taller.

                                            Just assembled MS20 tabletop. First thing that I did not like was the letter inside the package with the offer for free lamp replacement if I will write 5-star review and visit some link (for fake traffic?). Overall it felt like their marketing letter was written by ex-scammer. I guess after this review I am not qualified for the offer ;). Whole studio is big disappointment. In addition to weak structure my two main concerns are: light is not bright and tray is gets marked very easy. I guess they using some very cheap chinese lamps that cost a penny. And it performs like it costs a penny. I had to use 3 additional light sources to get the acceptable light. Second problem is that the tray is poor quality as well and I already got 2 black scratches inside the tray after slight touch from additional source light. And I had to use additional light because the light from lamp was not enough.Anyway, I will be returning the studio and will start searching for another solution (most likely home-made studio from parts).

                                                  Reasonably clear and simple instructions, this seems to be a good alternative for taking nice photos of objects that you wish to post on the internet.

                                                    Assembly instructions are very good, put together quickly. Some reviews say the white plastic background module is flimsy and needs reinforcement. Not true. It stands up fine, and with reasonable care, it should last a very long time. I found the provided fluorescent light track provides excellent lighting with subject matter that has solid colors. The reflecting cards worked well to add a bit of front light at the bottom of the subject. Using the "Daylight" color temperature on the Canon 5D ii, the photos looked correctly colored and the background fairly neutural. The promotional info shows the camera dead in front of the subject; note that the position of the light track could block the camera on a high-angle shot of the product. The 5000k lighting is strongly diffuse and doesn't work well for clear or white subjects, rendering them close to indistinguishable from the background. For these kind of subjects, I remove the provided light track and instead use 2 independent lights on stands, positioned on each side of the subject, or one on the side and one for back light, or just one side light. This gives clear or white products more definition. The MS20 MyStudio is a great little rig for shooting intermediate-quality quick shots of small products, instead of sending out to a pro studio. It's worth the price just for the convenient white infinity background module.
