    After considering many portable light studios, I settled on the PS5 PortaStudio for a few reasons. I really love that the 500K light source is attached to the unit and not a separate thing that has to be purchased and set up on either side of the studio. I also like that this studio is open on both sides, allowing for other interesting shooting angles and perspectives. Most portable studios limit you to a small opening in the front. Although it's not as portable at the "pop up" studios that just fold up and down, I prefer the wider, studier stand and will deal with the longer set up time. This unit does a great job for my purposes. I'm a professional portrait photographer who dabbles in food photography, but this is also great for those wedding macro shots when finding the perfect macro lighting in a short amount of time is nearly impossible. I thought the price was very reasonable for an all-in-one studio. No disappointments here.

    I don't think I received the same product as the others who have commented about this item (or photographers are a very forgiving bunch). Mine was clearly a "reused" item and maybe that explains part of it. The black items are really dirty, so don't wear anything you like when you assemble this thing (I learned the hard way). One of the black plastic pieces had not been inspected, i.e. one of the holes still had a plastic core that took considerable effort to get out. The plastic shroud of the fluorescent light had two of the tabs broken off (probably why it was returned the first time) and the directions are comically in error. Although the illustrations are poor (how ironic is that!) they will get you through the assembly process. I ended up with a wobbly "rack" that does a reasonable job of holding a piece of plastic sheeting. I could duplicate this for $20 at the hardware store and I may do that, just not sure it's worth the hassle of going through the return process. I will guarantee you one thing, this item is not worth anywhere near $[$]and if you are at all handy you can do much better at Ace Hardware.

          - Bought to use as a backdrop for my photos used in my @ listings- My background looks better, more professional, and with better actual colors of my items- I just wish you could take photos from up above rather than just straight on as I need that for many of items

              Easy to setup. Great instructional DVD.
              I thought it was over priced until I set it up. It is simple yet the concept is so good that it is well worth the money.

              This is lightweight and easy to set up (and break down if needed). It comes with a large heavy stock white sheet that acts as a background. The included light shines perfectly and disperses well.

              I received this product today and could not wait to put it to work. Assembly was easy and the instructions were very good. Materials are not flimsy and fit together very well. Assembled, I just took my prosumer digital SLR hand held and snapped awesome pictures right away. I was concerned about the size of this unit and my items. Put a 10 inch bud vase in this, hand held camera, got outstanding results. This was a super purchase. I am very pleased.

                      As a small manufacturer of consumable products, we found that we often needed a quick way to get an up to date, high resolution product image in the hands of our customers. We run a very lean operation and usually outsource our product images, catalog, etc. If we updated a product, it could take weeks to get our product photos from our media company. None of us here are professional photographers, but the images we have taken with the PS5 have turned out better than expected and allow us to react to customer requests almost immediately. Very simple to set up and we love that the background has no visible seams. It would be nice if this item could be designed to fold down quickly for storage, but that is a small gripe.

                        Super easy and for the price can't be beat.

                        I looked around a bunch and settled on this one. Happy i did.

                                The frame is a bit flimsy. Lighting is not overly bright. Instructions would be easier to understand if diagrams with arrows like an IKEA instruction manual instead of still life B/W pictures. Its alright for light use.

                                After much search I finally purchased the MyStudio PS5 Photo Studio. Took 10 minutes to assemble and the results are exactly what I was looking for. The light is an added bonus.

                                      I am using this product to photograph small products for my online store. It is perfect, a small footprint but still very functional.

                                        As others have said, it the plastic did seem a little flimsy, but the plastic itself also seemed flexible enough not to break easily. The background piece is long enough that you can extend it out if you need to shoot slightly larger items. You can also raise the structure up some by placing things under the supports if you need to shoot items that are slightly taller (I was shooting wine bottles). I'd recommend also using white or reflective material along the sides if you're shooting anything where a reflection could show (like wine bottles). The light is bright, but I wasn't able to get a super white background (always a more gray tone). I was shooting with all other lights off and at night so there were no ambient lights. The light does give an even tone, but not exactly what I was looking for. Other items (besides wine bottles) might shoot better. I also had to fiddle with it quite a bit to minimize the light reflecting in the glass of the bottle. I'll still have to do a fair amount of post in Photoshop.

                                              This was just what I needed to be able to set up a quick tabletop studio. My only suggestion would be to add the ability to fold it up when not in use. As is, you'd have to remove all of the screws and take it apart.
