Taking product shots without special equipment can be challenging. Zenon's Peter Louden has developed a unique solution based on his MagneFlash light panel technology. And it's nearly fool proof (as we humbly prove).
To take a good looking product shot, you have to somehow diffuse your light source and balance it with reflectors, at least -- not the typical kitchen lighting setup.
Zenon's unique solution not only solves the problem but offers some compelling advantages. The Zenon copy table uses three light panels based on its MagneFlash technology. By using powerful strobes whose light is diffused over a large panel, the copy table lets you hand-hold your camera and shoot at high shutter speeds, capturing the shine on metal objects. It's hard to take a bad shot, we found out.
