very easy to use


from Edgewater, NJ  -  Casual Photographer

very easy to use, even for the beginner. bulbs generate a lot of ambient heat. straightforward product, just make sure it's bright enough for its intended use.

Not Bad For The Price


from Columbia, SC  -  Pro Photographer

I bought this kit to be part of my mobile setup, so that I could leave the expensive and heavy gear in the studio. Well, you get what you pay for ... The kit is definitely good for beginners but is not up to the task of traveling constantly, and the umbrellas that came with the kit are very cheaply made. If you are very gentle with this kit it will last you a good while. The light quality is good especially if you throw away the umbrellas that came with the kit and buy some better ones, or better yet get some soft boxes. All in all for the price the quality is not bad its obviously just not "pro" quality.

Putting some light on the subject...


from Staatsburg, NY  -  Casual Photographer

For about a year I struggled trying to "make do" with the lighting I had and it just wasn't cutting it. These allow me to get shots I never could have and are a good investment. They could be a bit more durable, so you need to be careful with them, but other than that, I am quite happy with them.


I will use Adorama again.

This outfit works perfectly for glamour shots!
