I have a cloth photo cube but it takes too much time setting up.

I don't use one, but it looks like a pretty cool idea.

I like the design, but the sides look somewhat opaque; I wonder how well they will diffuse light.

I'd want more room than 9x9. I have the Fotodiox box listed in the link below, and sometimes it feels too small.

Do a good turn daily!

These are new pen kits on me! Can you tell me what they are and where you sourced them?

I have a fold up box from Polaroid that works well. However. like most fold up units it does take time to setup. All the lights and stands fit in pockets that are part of the "kit". The lights are kinda wimpy but give fair pictures. I have added a couple of light bars that fit over the top. It came with four colored backgrounds, but I almost always use a graduated gray sheet that I added to the setup. I would add a picture of it but don't time right now to set it up!!!
Wish I had a place to leave it setup, but the dining room table gets frowned on.
A better camera would help also for better pictures.
Most of mine are spur of the moment pictures, so the cell phone gets used a lot.
