I know from reading many of Garry's posts that he's not fond of the bland look imparted by these small tents and domes. Generally I'd agree. Most of the time I've laboriously rigged small lights, underlighting, etc., to show off each designer's pieces with some individuality. But the fact is that sometimes I just need to grab something and go. The jeweler doesn't care about anything fancy and can't pay much. If they're willing to accept compromised results I'll do my best, as long as it doesn't take too long. What I want is the "least bad" of the many small tents and domes on the market. There are way too many to choose from and no single dealer I've visited carries more than a single model. My priorities, in relative order: 1. Very portable - lightweight overall and collapsible 2. Easy to set up 3. Easy to take down 4. Accepts sweep backdrops and similar *simple* accessories (nothing fancy). And pulling the Velcro shouldn't rip the thing to shreds. 5. No rigid or semi-rigid transluscent plastic stuff. I've also ruled out mini-light tables like the Kaiser Studio-Out-of- the-Box and American Recorder Studio-in-a-Box (what an imaginative bunch of marketing gurus, huh?). I can rig that up myself. And a final question: is an extra hole in the top for aiming a camera downward worthwhile, a la the Photoflex LiteRoom? Between the stuff from Lastolite, Paterson, Photek, Photoflex, Red- Wing, etc., which would be your choice if you were in my position? Please, no lectures about doing it the right way or not at all. I already know I've sold my soul to mediocrity. Thanks, all.
