Foldio smartphone studio

Postby mattjgilbert » Fri Mar 28, 2014 3:57 pm

I backed the Foldio Smartphone Studio on kickstarter and it turned up today. It comes flat in a cloth bag and unfolds into the box you can see in the pictures. It comes with a single LED strip powered by a 9v battery which attaches to the side using the same flat magnets that holds the thing together. A choice of foam backing inserts were available but I went with a plain white one. The blue graduated sheet in the picture is just a piece of paper I use for a background when taking pictures.

It's really easy to set and and put away. The LED strip is really bright and having this now means I now longer have to mess around with multiple daylight bulbs and hoping the light outside is good enough. All pictures were taken on my phone.

Ooh I like that! Ive got a proper light tent setup that I *can* use, but I always have to setup on either the kitchen bench or dining table at the mo (messy desk). This looks like it would fit in the space where my spray booth folds up :)

Are they launching it to the general public?

Well they have only just stared shipping to backers so I doubt they will go to retail right away. I can't remember what their plans were. I'll go and see if I can find out.

I just got this email from the manufacturers of the foldio.

http://us3.campaign-archive2.com/?u=e53 ... 23f6785d93

You can sign up for emails through their website and they mentioned in the email that next week they'll be having a limited sale event.

Son anyone interested, the site and signing up for the email might be worth a look.
