The folks at Orangemonkie are back with Foldio2 “Bigger & Smarter” on Kickstarter. We originally wrote about them a year ago when they debuted the original Foldio. Essentially, it’s a collapsible photo studio with LED lights that will help you take better product photography with either your phone or your camera. The original Foldio came in at 10.2 in. x 10.2 in. x 10.2 in. This time around, the Foldio2 is 15 in. x 15 in. x 15 in., which can accommodate bigger items.
The Foldio2 comes with three backdrop options: white, black and grey. The LED strips are also longer than the original, which provides much more light. The Orangemonkie team is also developing a smartphone to provide quick and easy editing for any photographs you take in the Foldio2.
This is definitely a boon for anyone looking to take better product photos or experiment with macro photography. Hopefully, eBay listings will look a little better, too, if this has a high adoption rate.
They’ve already blown past their $50,000 threshold, but if you’d like to get one early, head on over to their Kickstarter.
