If you only occasionally sell things on eBay or Craigslist then you can probably get away with a less than stellar photo of the item in question. But if selling things online is your bread and butter, you’re going to want your products to look their best. A light box is an essential tool for taking professional looking product shots and while you don’t necessarily have to buy something as expensive as the MagneFlashCT MAXI, it certainly looks like it makes the job a lot easier.
The Zenon flashes it uses are actually built into lightweight acrylic panels that completely light up when the flash is fired. As a result, the system provides soft and uniform 5,600 degK lighting and looks to be a lot easier to use for amateur photographers who might not know the best way to position or bounce a regular flash.
