    Hi totoro17,

    Look at the picture carefully. He's using a prosumer camera, not a DSLR. Light tent is not from ikea, you can get it from PQ23 or syketang or Perly Inc. You can find them in MO forum here and for perly, youcan do search on google, you can find his estore.

    its call KVART wall_clamp spotlight, however you will not find this light on ikea sg. You can have a look at how it looks at ikea us and china... as mention maximum is 40w only.

    Note: For the setup that I used, works well with small light tents (50-36cm). For the larger ones it may not be powerful enough...

    Can tell me the exact light that you bought so only 40 watts enough? and the lamp you bought? I thgt need at least 100 watts? I also want to try to get and experiment. What if you shoot in the day and on the lights is it better?
    In case it helps, I just bought the halogen bulb rated at 150 Watts at $7.90 from Ikea. Its been around for some time, great for product shoot

    I got my 40cm light tent liao. For lighting, I gave up and order PQ23's mini studio lighting kit. Will post once I set it up. Now looking for a high reflective black platform for mirror-like reflections.
