    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. The light level is strong and clean, with no flickers or other... 5/5 kateTaylor™ (Manhattan, New York) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Greating lighting at an even greater price

    5/5 Mister B (South Carolina, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography & Video Portrait Umbrella Continuous Triple Lighting Kit (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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2010

    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

    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. I never purchase anything... 5/5 JenniferV - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    could be better, but ok for price

    3/5 PaL - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 2275 Watt Digital Video Continuous Softbox Lighting Kit with Boom and Carrying Case (Camera) like all reviews said, supports (spines) that give shape to softbox are CHEAP and bend badly. Why doesn't someone invent a spring-action pole that fits into the slots easily and snugly? ridiculous. lights are very bright. nice. not a bad set up for the price, but it is clear that they cut corners to save a few dollars here and there, when, for a few dollars more, they could have produced a first-rate product. a shame.

This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Photo Studio Video Quick Softbox Lighting Light Kit, 600 Watt Output (Electronics) I don't understand the negative reviews. I do daily youtube videos and wanted to upgrade to at least some beginner lights. They have improved my videos 1000% I have had zero problems with any part of these lights. I watched a youtube video to figure out how to put them together. I had them up and was filming within less than 20 minutes. Ignore the negatives. These lights are perfect for a beginner.

    Great lights and they survived

    5/5 Amazon Customer - 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.

    5/5 B-TOASTED - 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'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.

    Cowboy Studio

    Great little set-

    I received this package super fast after ordering it last Friday. The box was relatively big at first then realized after opening it there was a small box inside of it with cushioning to keep everything safe.For the price, this was an awesome buy. The construction was very easy and did not have any problems. But I did notice something that kind of bothered me. Anything in this package that can "adjust"in length or width felt cheap because the parts that releases and locks were made of plastic. But I did not get the feeling they were going to collapse on me at anytime.I put up the backdrop stand by myself with no issues so that was good.The 2 larger light stands works, felt sturdy does its job.The mini light stand as felt sturdy and does its job.The 3 lights - 2 out of the three lights fit perfectly onto the light stand with no issue.

    Instant studio without the hassle

    I chose to purchase this studio kit for the amount of items you get for the price. Putting together a studio kit for a beginner is time consuming and troublesome to make sure everything is compatible. With this kit you have everything you need right out of the box. I had no problems setting up this kit in under 30 minutes without instructions.Backdrop stands - Pros: Sturdy, easy to assemble and adjust, supports weight well, expands to a large 10'-13' size, comes with quality carrying bag. Cons: need to be weighted to avoid being tipped over if the backdrop is stepped on in the back.Backdrop fabric - Pros: Large size for the price, includes black and white colors, very smooth. Cons: I wouldn't consider this a muslin, it is more like a thick cotton which is lightly translucent.Light stands - Pros: Sturdy, easy to assemble and adjust, supports light and umbrellas well.

    Could be brigher

    3/5 Richard D. Salisbury - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography and Video Continuous Triple Lighting Kit, Backdrop Support System, Black & White Muslin Backdrops and Carry Case for Support System (Electronics) The lighting kit most likely works well for video. We had a little trouble getting enough light out of it for DSLR portrait photos. We are amateurs. So we worked with different setups and got acceptable lighting with shadows minized. flashing the speedlight through the umbrella gave good results. Speedlight+Cowboy = acceptable results.The kit includes Fancier WT803 light stands. If you are doing comparison shopping and wonder what is the differnce between Cowboy and Fancier it is a goose egg. Dodge Dart vs Plymouth Valiant... same car different label. Construction is good not rugged. I expected this level of qualithy given the price.The Backdrop supports are adjustable to much wider backdrops. 6x9 is ok for tight shots. But an upgrade to wider and longer would be nice and possible with this kit. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 15, 2011

    Fits my needs perfectly.

    5/5 Manzanita Lodgepole (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Backdrop Supporting System with 9 Feet Updated Crossbar and Case (Electronics) I like to take videos of dance students. The background used to be a messy distraction of shoes, clothing, jackets, dance bags, half eaten sandwiches, and all you can imagine. This frame provides a great background for videos and photos. I can change the background often with sheets, paint drop cloths, paper rolls, and the imagination is all yours. I also make my own sand bags to drap around the the tripods so they are more stable. To make inexpensive sand bags, I buy a large bag of cheap men's sox at Walmart & cut off & sew up the heel part so they are more like a tube. I also buy bags of river rocks at a hobby or garden store, fill the sox, sew together at the top so you have weights on both ends. Highly effective.

    Functional and Durable

    I was looking for a portable background support system to use at home as well as on location to do some portrait photography work. I looked at several models and read many reviews, but could not decide on one. There were some models where the support bar would sag under the weight of the fabric or paper.I asked my brother (a fellow photographer) if he knew of good system. He suggested Cowboy Studios. I perused their website and came across a model that appeared to be sturdy and well priced (under $100). I knew which one I wanted...the Cowboy Studios Premium Background Support System (901). I did a search on Amazon and came up with several different models. I searched on "CowboyStudio backdrop 901" and was able to find the system.This heavy duty 10 ft crossbar studio background support system came in a carrying case and shipped in a box.

    Incredible product for the price...

    5/5 Herbie (Florida, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Backdrop Supporting System with 9 Feet Updated Crossbar and Case (Electronics) There is not much to say about the product itself, other that it is an average good quality item - two light stands and the top part.I had one small problem because the holes did not fit exactly to put the top part together, but the problem was resolved in a minute by loosening two screws and adjusting the holes. (You need a small allen wrench if this happens to you). The quality/price relation outweighs this little issue. Great product.The set comes in a nice and very practicable bag. Overall, the price is incredible low for this item. I simply can't understand how they produce all this for that price.Highly recommendable!

This review is from: CowboyStudio 45W Compact Fluorescent CFL Daylight Balanced Bulb with 5500K Color Temperature for Photography and Video Studio Lighting (Camera) i checked the wattage of these bulps and they are not 45 watts. they average 23 watts (22-24 watts).i measured the bulbs with a kill-a-watt meter.they are also not the same as what is pictured, but another bulb the Cowboy Studio lists on amazon.I also tested other bulbs for comparison:14watt nuvision 5500k was 13.5watts23watt greenlite 2700k was 19wattsso the cowboy studio 45 watt CFL was 50 percent under power compared to 5 to 15 person under for the other tested bulbs.this is very deceptive and I would ask the company why are they doing this?photographers buy based on light output so why lie about wattage?they also say this compares to a 225 watt incandescent, does it? would be interesting to see if anyone has tested with a light meter.i would beware of any cowboy studio product since they are so willing to misrepresent what they sell.
