Spend a $90-150 of a photo booth off of ebay. Stay clear of SteveKaiser, he is a turd.
If you have packaged goods, stay away from LED lights. They are great for video but are not great for packaged goods.

I like the 2000W with the overhead light myself. I use poster paper for backgrounds for mall items. Dollar store Shower curtains/ Table cloths for variations for background colors on large goods mostly because I want a large range of backdrops for affordable money. Make sure they are textured(almost all are)

A photo booth is at least as or more important that the quality of camera IMO.

Lighting and background is very important. I personally stay away from Camera phones they pictures usually don't look all that great to me. There are many used digital cameras from the mid 2000s that work great that can be had for $20-30.

I just ordered a photo booth from ebay the other day. It was 3 or 4 200w light overhead.

I have a nice real camera I can use, I have to downsize the resultion of the pictures to upload over the max size picture. I think I will need a better closer in lens.

Those 2000w with the overhead is really hard to beat. I buy a lot of these booths and this is my favorite although one of the cheapest.

It most likely has one huge 2000w over head and the 4 bulb hubs for the two side boxes. It should do almost everything you need.
