Product photography lighting kit - to buy or to rent

Hello

I am looking to buy or to rent (in Lugano) a small lighting kit and a cube/box for small product photography. Any recommendations for online shops where to buy or studios that rent it? How is it called in German?

Thanks
Egle

Without the lights, you can find ones online for 40usd.

yes, would be something like this. Found this online http://www.smick.co.uk/sonline/conti.../prod_299.html But with customs and import tax am afraid the price goes up quite a bit. Wanted to check alternatives locally

Generally youi will make rather boring photos using one of those as the light is too soft, using some black inside will help a great deal.

I think I need some plain boring photos for a product catalog. Ideal for my taste would be some natural light photography and shallow depth of field, but I don't think this is expected from me in this case
