    Photoflex Changing Room

    Hi all,

    Sorry: Silly question with a (hopefully) easy answer! I've got one of these things, it is absolutely great for what I need it for (4x5 ect.), but I have found that there are no instructions as to how to get the thing to fold down again. I have even written to the company, with no response. Can anyone tell me if there is a method to folding the thing before I bend it beyond recognition or toss it out the window ;-) Thanks!

    You have to reach inside and pull one of the pop up rings towards you to get it to close. I have one, but switched to the Harrison tent because it is earlier to use. The Photoflex is faster to open.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    You need to put your hands on diagonally opposed edges - right where the little loop straps are. Then push with one hand towards the other (squeeze). That will make the thing collapse into a flat oval. You just need to fold in a bit of the fabric sticking out and put it in the case. Zip with caution so the fabric doesn't get caught in the zipper. Hope this helps!

    Pinholemaster and aparat!! It worked!!! Thank you soooo much! I tried this so many different ways, I think I was overly cautious because it seemed that I was bending the wire frame. It is a nice system though, and really easy to open. I nearly did buy the Harrison tent but wanted the height too so I went with the Photoflex. Thanks again, I had nearly given up on the thing!

    I have used one for years. It is a little tight for Grafmatic 45s though.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
