These lights are easy to set up and easy to use. A very basic lighting set up. The only draw-back is it does not include a carrying case (unless you include the box it comes with, which does have a handle). The lights are perfect for small set ups. I've used them for photographic head-shots and portraiture and also talking head interviews. I've also used them to light small sets of products. Very happy with this purchase.
I bought this kit for short film/commercial video shoots. I wanted to shoot in scenarios that incorporated natural sunlight coming through a window, so I had to separately purchase daylight bulbs to match the color temperature. I also needed a bounce board to add a little more light to one side of my actors' faces. Otherwise, the kit contained everything I needed. It was easy to set up and tear down and easy to transport in the box it comes in.
You got what you pay!!! I cannot afford a $ 800.00 kit, so I went with this one. One word for a pros it's "Powerfull". 1000 watt output it's a lot of light. I turned it on with the soft box directly to my face and I was blinded inmediatly. I was exited. This is what IÂ´m looking for. I shoot weddings, and I want a portable way to light. my subjets. The third light it's a plus. Cons. feels very cheap. be very carefull to hook and assamble everything. DonÂ´t like the idea of a tugsten lamp. Planing to buy the flourescent kit for but lamps when they die out. Finally, it's a cheap option, so itÂ´s good for the price.
