What Customers Say
Of the people who purchased the AmazonBasics Portable Photo Studio, 88% left 4 or 5-star reviews. The customers felt that the product was constructed well and was made out of high-quality materials. The kit is perfect for larger items, which many of the customers appreciated very much. The reviewers were impressed by the seamless background and how easy the overall set up was.
Of the remaining 12% of customers who purchased this product left 3-star or below reviews, the common complaint was the lighting quality wasn’t as good as they had hoped it would be. With only two lighting strips, one in the front and one on the left, the folks doesn’t feel like it provides the lighting the product description claims it would.
Although there are some complaints that the lighting that this studio gives off isn’t spectacular, for just under $140, there is no denying that this is a great price. When you look at photographs the reviewers taken with this studio, it the background isn’t super bright white, but the items are still clear, but the colors are a little muted.
However, the light studio is compact, easy to assemble and transport, and it has a 1-year limited warranty. We feel that this is a good option if you are a beginner and want to take quality photos now, instead of waiting until you can afford something more expensive.
Plus, that 1-year limited warranty only adds to the value of the product because if something goes wrong with it (which there haven’t been any complaints of the construction yet), you can get another with no problem.
