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.

    I work at a wine company and we were going to use this backdrop for product shots. While the background was nice, even, and a consistent white, the lighting assembly that came with the product was one of the least intuitive things I have ever seen created on this planet.

    The whole thing is held together by wingnuts. Further, not everything is secured! You adjust the height of the lights by unscrewing one (non-bolted) screw which is hung on another hook (if you're not careful to hit this point, the whole thing will collapse immediately.)

    Lastly, the two light diffusers that are attached to the top are heavy and with even the slightest breeze in the room will cause the light stand to topple onto whatever product you are shooting. In our case, this can be cakes, cookies, and several edible items that can be destroyed.

    I have been forced to take the existing light stands and build a new one out of wood to ensure that the products are safe.

    P.S. The lights are also not even close to commercial grade. They burn at 5000K which means that you will absolutely have to do some white balancing at a later point.

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

    It works great with most of my products but some of my product are table lamps and eventually went over the background.
    The reflection of the lights is perfect for highlighting product. unlike the others, the light split all over it instead of making a light spot.
    The material of the product, however, is not as awesome as I expected, and the plastic feels like Ikea stuff or Chinese knockoff.

      Makes life a lot easier!

      By Hypotic Skin Bath & Body

      from Charlotte, NC

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

      Before I got the MyStudio MS20, I was using several random things to take small product shots including chairs, clip lamps, mannequin stands, paper rolls, and all sorts of things just to take photos. It would take me twice as long to gather the my hodge podge studio together than it would to take the shots. Now that I have the MS20 my life is so much easier. I keep my photo studio set up in my office, quickly take my shots, and move on. It is a dream come true!

        The setup was easy and one noticed the quality of the individual parts. Included assembly instructions are illustrated and straightforward, though assembly is easy. The printed and DVD product photography guide are on point, informative for the beginner and experienced, and enjoyable. I placed an embroidered ball cap on the "stage", tested various exposures and camera settings with tripod-mounted DSLR, and the results were the same, prior to the small required editing always attendant, what I paid a commercial photographer $/shot. Worth the price? What's the price of something that's works perfectly and is well-made?

            I was taking photos of salt and peppercone for my ecommerce business. I was very pleased how all salt grains looked 'alive' which was not possible without this tabletop photography tool. Especially I like MS20 for seamless backdrop. However I am still not getting perfect white background that it takes me extra work to remove white background. Also like many others commented it you can't fold the plastic backdrop that it takes some space in my place. Nonetheless, I am pleased with this product.

              Amazing! I work in a jewellery brand and always needed some king of studio to take the still pictures. This studio helped me completely. The photo is perfect and i dont even have to manipulate a lot in the photoshop. Old days i used to spend 10 minutes per photo, now its less than a minute.

                  I went from taking pictures on my patio table to taking pictures on my new Mystudio MS20 for my ebay ads.

                  The price of the product isn't cheap but worth it.

                  Very easy to set up

                  I would suggest using additional lighting and you may need to read the directions thoroughly they give you many good tips about photo quality.

                      I struggled for over a year to take good product images for my websites & marketplace listings. It was simply impossible to get clean photos with consistent results. OMG the MyStudio REALLY solved that problem. I'm really kicking myself that I didn't bite the bullet and spend the money to get it much sooner. The only thing I wish it had was a higher back for taller products but I can work with it. Maybe one day I'll upgrade to the bigger one. I take my pics with a Canon point and shoot camera on a regular floor tripod and it works great.

                        Needed a simple background to take product photos to use online. The MS20 does the job. I have zero experience as a photographer and use this background rig with my iPhone as the "camera." It doesn't produce art but it's far superior to taking photos against a wall or trying to rig a background out of a sheet. Gets the lighting right every time.

                                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!

                                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
