    20x24 Changing Tent - Anyone tried one of these?

    I recently saw this and was curious about it quality and practical use. Has anyone using a giant camera tried one of these? They make them up to 20x24 which would be the size Iím interested in but not sure if theyíre well made or how easy/difficult it is to use at this size.

    I have the 8x10 tent and are overall pleased. You get what you pay but it's functional, and mine is lightproof. The poles are probably under-dimensioned and are slightly bent from use, but still working.
    Not in any way heavy duty but it works.

    I have 8x10 and 11x14 tents from this manufacturer. 8x10 one still works well, but the poles for 11x14 one has been broken twice. They use the same diameter, but different length poles for all different size tents. Apparently, the larger the tent, the easier the pole is broken. In China, there is no quality control for this kind of consumable product. As lassethomas said above, you get what you paid.

    Iíve had the 11x14 one for a few years now without any issues. I also have a Harrison one, which is built a little bit better, but theyíre quite similar. Iíve used both to change film both at hone and in the car during photographic trips without issues. Nothingís broken so far.

    It's nicer than I expected, honestly. I have one I've used for 8x10 for sale in the classifieds if you're interested in trying one out.
