    Folding an 80cm Light Tent back into its little carry case

    My new light tent arrived - all good!

    Neatly packaged into a carry case - all good!

    Open it up and set it up - all good!

    Put it back into the little carry case - yikes!!!

    Google is my friend and I found this

    Light tent is nicely back in its carry case - all good!

    yeah, good luck with that, my newly aquired 60cm Ezybox soft box is much the same.

    Did a very carefull unfold first time around, but folding it up again was a different story

    I have one of those beach tent thingys that I never have managed to get back into its carry sack . . . And my reversible refector nearly took my nose off the first time O took it out of the bag. Fun with camera accessories, 'eh!

    I had a similar experience with my birding hide (even the steps look very similar). Did my head in trying to figure it out, so I found a video on Youtube showing how to do it. It took 20 seconds to fold it up, versus the hour or so I was struggling with it.
