Hi ppl,

Newbie here on this camera.

Would like to know and the extra equipments need for a macro product shoot.

Mainly shoot for watches for online selling.

Thinking of buying a Light Tent (Studio in a Box), any recommendation?

Thanks all for your inputs.

Any brand in particular?

Flashguns lighting? i saw those that comes in Fluorescent tube, but i guess it will be to hash for the watches as the glass is very reflective

It's macro. Marco's the name of a person.

A light tent would be gd and also need around 2 flashguns.

No it won't. The flashes fired through the box will still create a nice soft lighting effect.

You are missing the most basic equipment of all.
That is experience, gained through assisting an established photographer, at least experience of shooting a dozen or more weddings as the 2nd shooter or assistant.
