I utilize bulbs sets on shoots that vary in light and numbers of people. Simply put it is very much cheaper to replace bulbs and light holders rather than strobes. I have to say that this brand of bulb holder has not performed well. Of the intial 3 I purchased only one has not shorted within the first 6 months.
This piece came out of the box with striped threads for the set screw securing the umbrella shaft. The swivel clamp can't be tightened enough to prevent slippage if any size umbrella is attached unless using pliers to tighten. (no, I didn't use pliers, so the head never got used, only thrown in the dust heap of cheap junk I've bought over the years) Bottom line, [$] spent that never will make me back even a cent. Very disappointed with this product.
this is good for someone who prefers continuous lighting. it's incredibly affordable. the unit seems a little flimsy. hot lights would also melt this unit. my only complaint is that you can't attached a reflector dish to it (i thought those were threads in the photo)
