would it be better if the sheets were stretched flat?  you could probably get those chip bag clips to keep the cost low.  or staple them or something.

Might be, but I think I'm leaning towards no sheets right now.

the sheets are important to diffuse the light, but stretched tight should provide a better result.

So that's what you've done with the white pipes! Neat!

I might consider making a "mini" version of this. I'm gonna be selling some stuff on **** soon and a picture is worth a thousand words (as they say...)

$75 for a pvc light box? Pretty original however you can find a collapsable light box for about the same money.

unlike the $300 that was mentioned in the article. I bought mine for actually $75 on Amazon.

EZcube 30in box

I just used it today to take a bunch of product shots and it worked very well.

You've paid $75 for the $3.99 bedsheet part of the lightbox...
The majority of the expenditure is in the three 5000k Daylight bulbs and the clip on lamps.  The premade collapsable lightbox is cool if you are going to be moving it a lot, but you still need the lamps, the bulbs, and a frame or stands for the lamps for it to be worth anything.  (Sitting outside and using daylight isn't a reasonable option for a whole number of reasons)

My $75 was for the entire setup, PVC frame, sheet and the bulbs. The EZcube doesn't look like it comes with any kind of lighting for the price you mentioned. Neat device they made, but not quite the complete package ;)

I like this, it gives me an idea on how to make one that folds down from the wall. we have had major issues taking quality pics of cases. this looks very promising. Thanks
