Foldio is a Portable Studio for Smartphone Photography

The fine folks at Orange Monkie have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for Foldio, a portable studio that aims to help entry-level product photographers take better photographs. Anyone who’s browsed eBay knows that some of the auctions suffer from lackluster photos. Foldio is aimed at the smartphone photography crowd, but if you have a more powerful camera lying around, you can use that, too. At 10.2 x 10.2 x 10.2 inches, Foldio doesn’t have space for everything, but it’s perfect for that tchotchke you’re selling.

LEDs along the top provide even lighting, and a colored sheet of your choice provides a horizonless background. White’s usually the go-to backdrop, but for this, there’s also: yellow, orange, green, purple, blue and pink. The whole thing folds down into a piece that would fit easily in a messenger bag. There’s several weeks left in the campaign, and if you dig the project or would like a Foldio, head on over to the page to back it.

The company’s demo video is after the jump.
