    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 Amazon Customer "kateTaylor™" (Manhattan, New York) - See all my reviews 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

    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?)

It's great! Everything just as described.Good:Everything! Even the material has a sleeve where the bars go through! 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, December 31, 2010

    I'll state the obvious just in case someone has these questions:

    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.) They indeed do NOT need to `see' each other. My first test I had the flash in my... 5/5 Michael Seneschal (Boston) - See all my reviews, April 14, 2010

    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. So far I've had exactly one misfire,... 5/5 Davis D - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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 Protoplasm - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Each item delivered was broken

    No one seems to be doing any quality checks before sending out. I ordered two yellow, two black and two purple. Five out of six arrived broken. Still waiting on the sixth. Not worth the hassle for returning as they only provide $8.95 shipping for returning which doesn't cover the cost. These are only good for shards plexiglass if that is what you need.

    Great lights and they survived

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 6, 2014

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

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.

    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 "Never be bullied into silence....

This review is from: CowboyStudio 2275 Watt Digital Video Continuous Softbox Lighting Kit with Boom and Carrying Case - 2 Light stands, 2 Softboxes, 1 Boom Kit (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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 28, 2011
