    Smith-Victor 402053 reviews

    48" Light Tent with Black and White Sweeps is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product First off, it's huge. Can be a little tricky if you're dealing with it in a small space. You have to unfold it when it comes out of the box. It's a little bit of trouble getting it set-up. I think folding it back up will be even trickier. Haven't it tried yet. It does work pretty well though. Has a large Velcro door that has a zipper down the middle. I open the zipper and place my lens where I want it and then zip it up to seal things. It's good for eliminating dark reflections. The cloth backdrops work but aren't that great. They clip in but seem to move around a lot when you're switching out products. Bottom line: It gets the job done. Could be better but for the price it's worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's BIG! Well, this light tent is exactly what it says it is...trouble is, I paid more attention to the for photographing small and medium sized products, when I should have realized how big 48 is. I photograph only small objects, so didn't really need something this big; it's pretty unwieldy to move around from inside to outside, room to room. But otherwise, it diffuses light nicely!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from seems fine After reading a lot of reviews I was hesitant on both the size and closing it. It does come with a white paper on how to close it and it is very important! I was freaking out for twenty minutes trying to close it - then looked in box found the instructions and rather easy to close up. Smith-Victor should produce a You-Tube video tutorial. Time will tell on durability, but my guess if treated well will last years a mishap or accident and the construction/materials don't look forgiving.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value I've been yearning for a lighting photo tent for a while but I could never decide on the brand, model, and size. Well, this 48x48 is certainly adequate for my needs albeit it's larger than life. On the plus side, the size does provide ample maneuver space for both the subject, and especially any light diffraction aids you may add within the tent, without crowding your product. This alone makes it a keeper in my book.Tidbits: If you have enough room to set this up then it provides an excellent lighting area, with plenty of maneuver space. I'm fortunate to have a perfectly sized glass-top dining room table, but I'm still not looking forward to folding this up for storage. Still, I can't imagine finding anything better that provides this level of versatility for the price. The included alligator clips and backdrops are of good quality. Heck, even the well-made storage bag doubles as a perfect size dust-jacket placed over my full-size camera with flash and my Gary Fong light-dome fully extended. I can even zip it closed as it sits on top of my tripod, and you would think that it was made for this purpose alone!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting product Well, really hard to express an opinion on this stuff. I fought with it for over an hour trying to give it its shape, in vain. I passed for a donkey in front of my client until the time he tried to help me, also in vain... I spent my first two days working with something shapeless in front of me. Then, suddenly, while I was doing the pictures, putting an object inside, it made a funny sound, then it set itself up alone ... I scare about the moment I Will have to fold it ... Result: 1 star. No more. As for the result, have I already said that it was big? Yes, it's big. To photograph a complete range of cosmetics, it's perfect. Around this stuff, I had 3 flashes Yongnuo radiocommanded by a transmiter and lighting is good. Do not forget to pass the white (or black) sweeps, provided with the tent, to a steamer or iron. Sewn on the inside corners of the tent, opposite the opening, there are Velcro strips, but no corresponding strip on the white or black sweeps. Strange. It will be necessary to sew oneself on the it so that it clings without problem. Meanwhile, I stole from the secretary of the binding clamps to hold the sweep on the metal structure of the tent. On the picture of the product, we can see the tent, two folded backgrounds and four little stuffs which were not in the box. So, quality of the lighting: 5 stars, mainly because it is really cheap for the quality of the job obtained.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't Pop Open! I am terribly disappointed in this light tent. I have both the 28 and 48. The 28 popped open and became rigid, so I could quickly do photos, but the 48 will not pop open and become a rigid box... I have tried closing and reopening several times... I have tried to target the areas that refuse to pop straight... all to no avail! I'm hoping its defective because I really need this size...How do I send it back!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SV 48light tent Using this for product shots, makes my life much easier with reflective/glossy surfaced items. Easy to set up, and easy to take down similar; to the huge 5in1 discs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG. Did I say BIG? The only drawback to this thing is folding it up, which is best accomplished with someone else's help. If you have a big enough studio, just leave it setup. The directions could be a little clearer about folding it up, but otherwise, I've slept in tents smaller than this.
