    Greating lighting at an even greater price

    0 5/5 Mister B (South Carolina, USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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

    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.

    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 Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Seems to work great and more economical

    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 place 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 the batteries are in the receiver 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 receiver at extra cost.Way cheaper than many alternatives like Pocket Wizard.... yeah you don't get TTL with this,... 5/5 Geek4Life - See all my reviews Amazon 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. I took about 70+ shots so far. Not bad for day one. I do... 5/5 Keith - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Calif Martial Artist - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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 Shoulder Support Pad for Video Camcorder Camera DV / DC (Camera) I'm a pretty big guy, so this thing isn't the most comfortable, but I know that's because I'm big. It's not a flaw of the device. It's made of plastic, but it doesn't appear to be weak, and it does exactly what it's advertised to do. It's a nice little shoulder mount, especially for the price. This seems to be a rare case of getting a little more than what you paid for. I wouldn't stress the mounting arm too much with a lot of add-ons, though, because, in the end, it's plastic. Great for my T2i/550D and other lightweight DSLR's/camcorders. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2010

    OK, 5 star rating. As many people have already said, they just work. Believe me, I wish a lot of things I buy `just worked'. LOLI wanted to comment just to state the obvious... obvious to some, maybe not so obvious to others. But before ordering these I emailed Cowboy Studio's with a couple simple questions... then never got back to me. In fact, it was like I sent my email into space... don't expect this company to be on top of customer service via email. I suggest calling them, although, when I DID call them I got an answering machine (yes, like... and answering machine). I bought these triggers anyway... so I figured I'd answer my own questions in case others had the same questions.Q1.) Do they work only if they can clearly see each other (ie. line of sight) or will they work if the flash is hidden somewhere, like in a softbox or just around a corner somewhere?A1.)

    These are what you want.

    Wireless triggers come in two types, the super cheap generic ones and the crazy expensive PocketWizards. These trigger/receivers are excellent and work great. They are much better than the cheap ones I've tried and so far just as good as the PocketWizards I've tried. Range is not a big issue for me, I've not hit the limit of these Cowboy Studio ones. Honestly, if you exceed the range on these you better be finding a bigger light source than the Speedlight your probably trying to trigger. The wireless is pretty robust as well, I triggered strobes with these through two walls with no problem. The build quality is better than the generic guys but maybe a hair less than the PocketWizards. Doesn't matter though you can buy yourself about 10 of these for the price of two PocketWizards. So break them, loose them, blow 'em up or whatever and never worry about it. They're built well enough to not give you false pops too.

I will do more extensive testing this weekend.Simple directions for first time wireless trigger users:*Camera Flash mode must be set to manual*Flash (sb600/800/900) must also be set to manual mode'Also if you are in between shots and find that the flash does not fire I think it's because it goes into a standby mode.

This review is from: Cowboy Studio Top Quality Aluminum Adjustable Light Stand with Case (Electronics) Was looking for an inexpensive, lightweight stand to use with small umbrella or softbox and portable flash. This one works very well. Extending the legs was a little stiff at first, but a few drops of WD-40 helped. I found this flash braket to use with the stand and seems to make a good pairing. ePhotoStrobist Swivel Flash Bracket Umbrella Holder Studio Tilting Bracket for Nikon Canon E430 E580 SB600 SB800 SB900 by Ephoto INC bracketB I have used the stand fully extended with a 43" umbrella and so far it has been very sturdy. The included case is very lightweight material, but works well.

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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 11, 2010

    Incredible product for the price...

    0 5/5 Herbie (Florida, USA) - See all my reviews Amazon 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! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 19, 2009

    Pay the $10 extra to get the PBL version with METAL knobs (much better quality!!)

    0 1/5 kk (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Backdrop Supporting System with 9 Feet Updated Crossbar and Case (Electronics) I have a couple stands from CowboyStudio, they are CHEAP CRAP! Super light and didn't last long, all wingnut/knobs are plastic made, you hear that creaking noise when you try to tight things up. Eventually they just break! I then got the PBL version, much better build on the nut, screw. For this particular 10 ft backdrop stand, PBL sold for $60 + $15 shipping (total $75) as of today. Trust me, for that $10 different, it is well worth it if you want something that's durable and last longer. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 29, 2011

    Inexpensive but not exactly high quality

    I'm not sure what the other reviews where talking about when they said 'all metal'. Obviously the shoe mount is metal as are the screws but the main body is all hard plastic. Which isn't all bad if you're worried about weight (but probably not as durable as a metal design). The top mount works as expected (in my case I'm mounting a transceiver and then my 580EX II on top of that). What seems out of whack is the design for the umbrella holder. There is a flat spring in the hole meant to hold the umbrella steady (I can see what they were going for here, my other brackets have a simple flaw, the umbrella always either works itself loose or you put huge gouges in the umbrella shaft from cranking down on the screw to hold it in place). However, the spring just so happens to line up with the side of the spring with the umbrella is in the hole. So instead of holding the umbrella in place, the screw just tightens on the spring. Not real helpful. So in the end I did what I've had to... 3/5 W. Blattman (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews, May 20, 2010

    Fell apart on first use

This review is from: CowboyStudio Flashlight /Hot Shoe/Umbrella Holder with Swivel/Tilt Bracket for Nikon and Canon E430 E580 SB600 SB800 SB900 (Camera) Good design, yet when I tried to mount it on my light stand the umbrella holder literally fell apart in my hands. The quality of plastic is sub-par. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 5, 2011

    0 1/5 Richard Seymour - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Flashlight /Hot Shoe/Umbrella Holder with Swivel/Tilt Bracket for Nikon and Canon E430 E580 SB600 SB800 SB900 (Camera) At first, I liked the design of the top bracket. It is similar to the Stroboframe design. After using it a half-dozen times though, I found a major flaw! The thumb screw that tightens the bracket stripped and now it is unusable! Obviously, they used very cheap components! Say away from this one and pay a little more to get better quality! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 9, 2011

This review is from: CowboyStudio Table Top Photo Studio Light Tent Kit in a Box - 1 Tent, 2 Light Set, 1 Stand, 1 Case (Electronics) After doing my usual exhaustive research i settled on the CowboyStudio Table Top Photo Studio Light Tent Kit.It's got everything you need, lights, walls, backdrop, all in one convenient and very low profile carry case.It folds up for easy storage, takes up very little space. The kit is light weight and even has a carry handle.The most important factor in my purchase was the price, much lower than similar kits. And this is the only kitthat came with the lights in a handy pouch attached to the folding light box. Truly all-in-one.After using it i'm quite pleased with the photographic results. You can use the provided backdrops or your owneasily. Light is sufficient for web quality pix. Excellent way to professionalize your eBay, Etsy, or otherwebsite presence. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 2, 2010
