This platform really improved our product pictures. No shadows now and no need to use crazy methods for holding our products up. Assists in keeping scale between similar parts.
Pros: Packing, reflection
Cons: Although durable, not scratch resistant
Best Uses: Product Photography
Describe Yourself: Semi-Pro Photographer
I have used one of these platforms before. It belonged to a friend but they hadn't cared for it properly and it was scuffed. So, I bought one for myself. I was very impressed by the packing which was great. It also comes with paper protective covering on the front and back of the platform and the riser. You can place any type of background beneath/behind the platform and it prevents hard shadows and the reflection is nice too. I have been looking for a protective film that I can use to prevent scratches, something like the films used to protect a camera LCD, but much larger. No luck finding anything that doesn't cost as much as the platform.
Bottom Line: Would recommend this to a friend? yes
