Anyone have a recommendation for a reasonably priced shooting table? I know Smith-Vector is up there in quality and in price, but is there anything else that is nearly as good for a more reasonable cost? I'm looking for something that has a translucent top, large enough to photograph tall bottles of liquor, etc....

Thanks,

Greg

The least expensive option is to build your own. Here's a couple of ideas. There are many other DIY tables on the web.

Hi,

I use a bunch of superclamps, electrical conduit, and a couple of autopoles for mine. Here's an image in a couple of different configurations (don't have one with a sweep on it handy, but you get the idea):




At the time it was cheap (I put it together during the financial crisis when you could buy used superclamps all day for $5 each and autopoles for not a whole lot more) - those days seem to be gone but you can do something similar with structural tube connectors (look at tek supply) fairly cheaply. for larger shooting structures I actually prefer the electrical conduit to a pvc solution - the larger diameters are really stiff, surprisingly light, easy to cut, and pretty cheep, but that's just me...

Good Luck,

rkg
