    A solid purchase, even for pros.

    As a photographer with over 30 years experience, I can tell you that these lights are simply awesome. There have been many reviews from what I can only assume are drooling morons about the socket quality, the stands quality, the low light levels. Guess what? They are $60.00 bucks, not $1,500.00 like my main set!PROS:The Stands are of a thinner tubing than the $1,500 dollar variety, yes, and of a pot metal construction (not aircraft grade aluminum) with lower quality plastic clamps and adjusters (not machined and polished aluminum) HOWEVER... they are most certainly sturdy for light stands and absolutely useable for what I can see as a very long life (if you're not a tool!)Also, the light fixtures themselves are very sturdy AND accommodate the included bulbs very well.As this is a continuous light system and not strobes, I have used them for studio lighting along with 2 softboxes.

This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography/Video Portrait Umbrella Continuous Triple Lighting Kit with Three Day Light CFL Bulbs, Three Stands, Two Umbrellas, and One Carrying Case For Product, Portrait, and Video Shoots (Camera) We will be using this kit for both photography and video.I was initially skeptical at what I was going to get at this phenomenal price, but I am extremely pleased with my purchase. Everything assembles very quickly, and it goes back just as easy into the included storage bag. I kept the boxes for each item so they stay nice and neat in the bag.I am an amateur photographer, my partner runs an indie production company, so we needed something that fit our extremely modest budget, was portable, and provided the light we required for various shoots. This product met our requirements in all cases. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2010

    Good for the price.....and...

    I purchased this set to use for photo and video production to profile some products my company sells. First off, CowboyStudio shipped this to me fast - so fast, I got it several days earlier than the listed arrival date on Amazon. A pleasant surprise.Now to the product. The entire unit didn't come with any assembly instructions, but its quite easy to figure out how everything goes together. The backdrop support and light kits all fit inside the included carry case, but the muslin backdrops do not nor would I force the light bulbs in there either. Not a significant issue, but one that should be noted.The muslins are all of good quality and fit nicely on the support system. Of course, you'll have to iron/steam the wrinkles out, but that's easily done as well.I did find that the 40 Watt/5000K lights while giving up nicely balanced light, were underpowered and needed to be close to the subject - something that given the size of the backdrop didn't prove to be an... 4/5 D.

    What I expected except for the brand name

    I bought this after much searching on amazon for other similar packages of lights and backdrops. Since I read just about every review ever posted for every single version of this light kit I can say I well knew what to expect. One thing I didn't expect was that I would get a different brand than Cowboy Studio. Instead I got Kaezi Photography equipment which seems to be of similar quality with the exception of some sad looking wingnuts and a few other minor engineering/packaging flaws. But everything arrived unbroken, on-time and functioning as I expected. Here's what you can expect from these kits and how I learned to stop worrying and love this kit:- THE BACKGROUND STANDS ARE VERY UNSTABLE UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THE MUSLINS WHEN THE BACKGROUND STAND IS FULLY EXTENDED. - This doesn't mean they won't stand up on their own at all, but you have to be in a very controlled environment with a perfectly flat ground and your models being very aware of their movements... 4/5 Shauncho - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

So no need for clips.Bad:No carrying caseI would recommend getting a middle support for the back drop because once it's set up to it's full width it bows a little in the middle.Other then that I would recommend anyone to buy this product.It was very easy to set up and take down also. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 31, 2010

    Extremely Satisfied

    After immense research, I decided to purchase this. I have a small studio in my home maybe 15ft by 10ft with one window. I purchased this item Tuesday night and I received it the following Monday. Shipped by UPS. There were no instructions or invoice in the bag so i decided to find the instructions on YouTube. There are a lot of videos on how to set it up. The first light box was a pain in the butt but then after I figured it out and it was a breeze. After I finished cleaning up my mess I found a little card in the pocket of the bag that said: for instructions please go to [...]. lol kind of found that too late. I was impressed by the carrying bag as well. You can't beat this quality and size of equipment for this price! I do not recommend this to a photographer who plans on traveling with it. It takes too much time to set up and their is too many pieces to bring this around. So, if you are planning to purchase this, you're going to have to keep it set up.

    An Excellent Set Up At a Fraction of Pro System Costs

    If you're reading this review chances are like me you're a hobbyist. In the sense that we have studios in our home, we're not professionals but we love video editing and still photography.That said and if you agree, I think it's important to consider this kit in both relationship to the cost and comparisons to the exact same set ups - by pro lighting companies. So I did a bit of research trying to keep it apples to apples - the same two box lights and boom light, as well as the same wattage.The Norman 4 Mono light 3 soft box studio with boom sells for $3,395. The Smith-Vector, on sale is $999.000. I found others that like the above look much like this CowboyStudio set up but the costs range upwards of 6 grand - it's pointless to mention them all as I hope the point is made, if not blame it on my writing.So you get this kit for less than the tax you would pay for a professional lighting system.I now have two studios, both green screen and... 5/5 Peter Suslock (CT USA) - See all my reviews, July 14, 2013

    Seems to work great and more economical than alternatives

    I freaked out at first when I saw the PC sync cable that comes with this set. I don't have a PC sync cable port for any of my gear. But I tried it out anyway and it works great anyway. You do not need to use the PC sync cable at all if you don't want to.Basically you stick the transmitter into the camera hotshoe and attach the receiver onto the flash. Then power up the flash and use it in Manual mode to set the strength (e.g., 1/4 strength). Make sure batteries are fully charged and inserted (transmitter will light up if charged, if not, replace the 23A 12V inside; the receivers use 2 AAA batteries each), and that the transmitter and receiver are on the same channel.Take a test shot. If it's too bright or dark, adjust exposure compensation/flash compensation and/or flash strength until it's just right. Then you can fire away without having to re-adjust!I bought this set in case one of the receivers breaks; that way I don't have to order another... 5/5 Geek4Life - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Are you kidding me?

    First let me say that the delivery was 2 days earlier then I expected. Next, you're a sucker if you buy any other triggers and are not a pro. It arrived in a nice looking box and was well protected. First thing I did was bought batteries to test them out. You do not need a flash to test them out, but I recommend you do to no be miss led. For example; I pressed the test button on the trigger and a little red light on the receiver indicates that it received a signal. Now I did this right when I put my fresh batteries in. It did show some miss firing on one, but, when I tested it with my flash (SB900)it never missed fired not one time. It appears to me that the light doesn't pop each time you press the trigger button. However when the flash is on the receiver, it has worked every time. I Tested it with 2 walls(about 30 feet straight line)between the flash and camera and not one time has it miss fired.

This review is from: CowboyStudio NPT-04 4 Channel Wireless Trigger for External Speelights with 1 Trigger and 2 Receivers (NPT-04+extra receiver) (Electronics) I took a lighting class and these units were recommended to the students. I picked them up along with a couple of YN560 speedlights. Coupled with my D7000 they work very well both indoors and out. I haven't yet found any problems with interference. I have not used them at any extreme range so cannot say how well they would work at large distances but then with a speedlight you would be unlikely to be in that situation anyway. I recommend these units to anyone considering using off-camera strobe/flash. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 3, 2011

This review is from: Cowboystudio Backdrops 10X20(feet) Photography Black Muslin Photo Video Backdrop Background (Electronics) This backdrop works great. It is not heavy duty or opaque but I like that it is light and can fit in a small bag or box to travel or store. Light will show through it if there is a doorway or a window. I have had no problem when I light it from the front and have a solid wall behind it. I like the 20 ft since it gives me plenty of room to work with and it also gives me the option to double up if I need to. To store this, I wad it up and cram it into a box with my white backdrop. I do not fold it. I like the subtle texture it has from being wadded up. If you need it to be smooth just hang it and spray it with a water bottle and give it a few minutes and it will be smooth. Any wrinkled spots can be sprayed again and they will let loose. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 25, 2013

    Outstanding Value

    After laying out plans to build a light tent using PVC pipe and adding up the cost I decided to do some internet shopping for a "store bought version". With the cost plus the over all size, weight and ease of storage being major inputs for my consideration I found the variety of collapsible light tents to be most desirable.Having considered the various sizes materials and accessories of the various tents and reading through the comments on Amazon and several photography forums I decided to give the Cowboy Studio 30" soft box light cube a go. (I opted for the 30" version because it's easier to work with too big than too small...).This particular light cube does not include lamps which makes it less expensive of course and was one of the features that helped in my selection.

    Great Photo Tent - Highly Recommended

    The CowboyStudio "24in Photo Tent" is exactly what was needed for our product photos. We own a small business and do all of our own product photography. The results were somewhat hit-or-miss since getting the lighting just right could be very challenging. Using a Photo Tent eliminates a lot of the guess work and helps to produce consistent results between shoots, and it also saves me a lot of time fixing things later in Photoshop. Here are my observations:Included;* 24"x24"x24" Photo Tent* Front Screen w\Slit (attaches with Velcro and allows lens to poke in the box)* Red, Blue, Black, and White Back Drops (attaches w\Velcro)* Carrying Bag w\handlePros -+ Good Quality; the material is thicker then expected+ Easy to Setup; the box literally springs in to shape when taken out of the bag+ Works Great; material diffuses light and eliminates shadows just as expectedCons -- Hard to fold back up- No... 5/5 C.

This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Photo Studio Video Quick Softbox Lighting Light Kit, 600 Watt Output (Electronics) I'm not a professional photographer but I am a person who looks for good quality at to what I believe is a good price. I compare similar items and read the reviews/ratings. There was no review on this product when I bought it so I took a calculated risk. I am more that happy with what I received. It is perfect for what I will be using it for (product photos). I hope that Amazon stocks up on these because I would highly recommend this to any amateur photographer who wants to take their own product shots. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 17, 2012

    Just what I needed

    0 5/5 Tony Angel - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Photo Studio Video Quick Softbox Lighting Light Kit, 600 Watt Output (Electronics) I needed some fill lights to use on occasion and were quick to setup and transportable. These fit the bill. I use for digital videography and these lights were just what I needed. I'm not sure they would stand up to daily use but for occasional use you can't go wrong. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 12, 2014

    Great lights and they survived

    0 5/5 Philip Cross - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Photo Studio Video Quick Softbox Lighting Light Kit, 600 Watt Output (Electronics) I couldn't wait to write a review for these lights. I just received them in the mail and put them to use immediately in the field. I work in broadcast news and decided to test them in conditions where you probably shouldn't be using softboxes. However they held up. I used both lights for a live shot and got great results even in the wind and some light rain. The stands are not quite as rugged as standard news lights, but they more than held up in the wind with some sandbags on the base.Set up and tear down was very simple and quick. The lights did not get too hot to handle and I've been able to store the lights (with caution) in the bags the softboxes come in. They are light weight to carry around and I will be using them for "one-man-band" shoots in the near future.A great purchase and an awesome deal. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 6, 2014

    Quite a bargain

    0 5/5 AC500Driver - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 16 x 16in Photo Softbox for Studio Strobe with Carry Case and Speedring (Electronics) A softbox for $20? You bet. Although not made for everyday commercial use on location shoots, this softbox is perfect for being a piece of permanent hardware in the studio. It does its job well. The fabric/stitching/velcro would not stand up to constant assembly and disassembly. Speaking of assembly, no instructions are included, but Cowboy Studios provides a PDF on their website. Once you've put it together and taken it apart a few times, zero thought is required for the process. If using outdoors, be sure and weight your light stand as the softbox has quite a surface area and the slightest breeze will send everything flying. Overall, Cowboy Studio's softbox is a terrific value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 10, 2011

    Hotshoe/flash mount isn't perfect.

    0 3/5 rockinwaggy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboystudioUmbrella Mount Bracket with Swivel/Tilt Bracket for Nikon and Canon 430EX E580EX SB600 SB800 SB900 (Electronics) The hotshoe/flash attachement piece doesn't tighten up perfectly straight. It does snug up, but I can't get it to line up perfectly perpendicular to the umbrella. I end up turning the flash head to get it just right. Other than that, these are alright. I don't LOVE them, but they do the job. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 28, 2013

    Solid metal bracket, excellent build quality

This review is from: CowboystudioUmbrella Mount Bracket with Swivel/Tilt Bracket for Nikon and Canon 430EX E580EX SB600 SB800 SB900 (Electronics) Solid metal bracket, excellent build quality. Most of what I was finding when I searched for this bracket where cheap plastic. This is around the same price as the plastic ones, but much better build quality 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 25, 2013
