If you are taking pictures of small object that you want to stand out then a light box is what you need. The Zecti lightbox comes folded flat and easily assembled in seconds to a box via the magnetic clips. It comes with black and white background and what really makes looking photos are the included two USB powered LED lights. The light strips clip to the light box via magnets (which are very strong) and illuminate the area in the light box ready for photos. There is also a removable top hatch which is attached via Velcro which can be removed so you can take overhead shots.
The whole kit folds down flat when not in use and it would be great for taking photo of items for selling on site likes eBay. My only criticism of it is that the magnetic clips on the side aren’t that strong so if you push the light box it does have a tendency to fall over. Other than that is a great piece of kit to have.
It costs £13.99 for the small unit and £29.99 for the large one (on Amazon.co.uk), here is my video of the lightbox in action:
