In Maplins yesterday for something else and noticed a bin with 'Portable Studios' for £9.99 (half-price). Assembled, it's a 40x40x40 cm cube with white translucent walls and ceiling for doing shadowless 'pack shots' . The floorcloth is double-sided, grey on one side, overlay blue the other.

It folds to a flat pack with carrying handle and tripod straps. Even if I only use it to get decent stills for eBay sales it should pay for itself.

I'm on my way to Maplins to get one.

Here's the link if anyone's interested.

Thanks, Ray.

The price is £ 19.99 according to their web site. If Ray bought it for £ 9.99 he was lucky.

Ray did say he got it half-price.
