Honestly, I have a real photo lightbox / phototent and I find them really crappy. I've tried them with snakes but usually they come rushing out the front or you just can't get the frame right (annoying corners etc). I use a fairly cheap softbox studio light system with my Canon DSLR and I love love love the light!

Here's a photo I made with my set-up, the background is just a big piece of white paper:

Should I use the multi-shot option?
One of the best things you can do is experiment. Try different settings with different lighting. One of the best ways to get better photos is to think about lighting first. The best thing about digital is you don't have to worry about "wasted shots".
