If you’re on the go or have limited space, and want to photograph small objects with minimal fuss, then this could be the perfect solution.

The easily transportable, thin and light portfolio case can be carried around with ease, and the box can be set up in seconds. When set up the cube measures 45x45x45cm.

The box comes with a blue backdrop cloth, which is handy for photographing lighter-coloured objects such as jewellery that you want to cut out at the editing stage; you can easily add a backdrop of a different colour if required.

It’s ideal for taking shots of small products for display on a website.

When the box isn’t in use the slim design of the case means it can be easily stored away, which is a definite bonus.

While it’s great value for money, the average photographer might rather pay a bit more to get a larger, all-in-one lighting and backdrop solution.
