I am trying to do some renders of a product and give it a look like a studio photo like this.

What is the basic setup required for this? Any tutorials you can point me to?

When you say studio, I think big area lights and boxes with incandecense for soft reflections and shadows. I setup a quick example scene a lot like in this thread: GI, replicating this image (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=396229)- but without the GI, just Final Gather. Dof is important too.

P.S.: I'd have uploaded the scene, but I'm out of space!

Here is a site that sells HDRIs based on real studio lighting: HDRI-Studio (http://www.hdri-studio.com/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/hdri/orderpage.pl?l=1).

If you just click on the previews though you can see how the lighting is set up with the gels and boxes (easily done with area lights and FG incandecense geometry like above) as well as the resulting lighting/reflections. Cool stuff. :)
