Studio setup for gadget review photography

Hello everyone,

I would like some tips on a setup for what is essentially product photography. That is, I own a gadget review website (mobile phones, laptops and such) and I intend to take photos of them from all angles, including close-ups of essential details such as rear camera on phones, or ports on a laptop and so on.

I am thinking of using a Sony A7 II coupled with a Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens, but I am open to suggestions on whether another lens or camera/lens combination would be better suited for the job. In addition to this, I am also looking for advice on lighting setup for this.

For the time being, I am using a Foldio 2 tent and while it is portable and easy to stow away it gives me mixed results in terms of lighting, so I am thinking about a pair of studio lights to compensate for this.

I have attached a few sample photos of the kind of work I intend to do to better give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance for your help.
