AmazonBasics Portable Photo Studio Review

Quick review of the AmazonBasics Portable Photo Studio which is available from, unsurprisingly, Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2r9ZtBT Amazon USA: ...

The AmazonBasics portable photo studio has been designed for those looking to get nice clean images of items, specifically for those interested in product photography.

After ordering from Amazon you’ll find it arrives in its collapsed configuration. I found in this flat form the carry handle came in very useful for transportation and storage, after all, who’s going to leave this up all the time?

I like the design, it can store the LED power pack in the top section, so when this is collapsed you won’t have a power pack to also carry around separately.

It can be tricky to setup up, but once I got the hang of expanding it I found it only took a minute to prepare. After expanding into the box shape you’ll find an inbuilt white backdrop included.

The manual does a good job of showing how to expand and collapse this but doesn’t give much help when it comes to shooting photos and I found a bit of trial and error was required to get the best from the lightbox.

In total you have 4 different positions to shoot photos from, 3 on the front and one looking down from the top. Although the LED lights are nice and bright you’re going to need to experiment with your camera settings to get the best shots.  In the review video you’ll see the OnePlus 3T used and using the automatic settings it produced a reasonable photo but the background crease (caused by it being folded when in storage) was clearly visible. If this is a problem for you you’ll need to experiment with the manual settings, in particular the white balance.

This can lead to much better results, unless you’re taking photos of very light objects in which case they can then be washed out with adjustments to your camera settings.

Overall this is a really well thought out product that will allow you to photograph items as small as jewelry or as large as a games console.

It would be even better if it came with a dark background as well as the white one, but this is something a DIY bodge with some dark fabric might be able to address.
