    Great set for the money!

    0 5/5 Kelly Alley - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: LimoStudio Photo Video Studio Light Kit - Includes Chromakey Studio Background Screen (Green Black White), (3) Muslin BackDrops, Umbrella, Softbox, Lighting Diffuser Reflector, AGG1388 (Camera) I was nervous that this would not be a sturdy set, due to its low price, but it has impressed me. The stands are good quality and easy to assemble. The backdrops are good material, although I have only used it with paper rolls of my own so far. The roll was a bit too heavy for the backdrop cross bar, but it did not collapse and it did not bend it. Fabric backdrops will not be a problem. Love the bag and it is easy enough to carry & transport. Not terribly heavy for me to handle alone. The only negative is the bulbs. I replaced them with softer incandescent bulbs for the warmth vs the cool light they put off. Overall, I'm very pleased! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 7, 2014

    Better quality than I'd expected from other reviews

    After reading some of the negative reviews, I was nervous to order this kit (and by the way...it's not a 'verified' purchase because it was technically a gift from my wife so she ordered it with her account, even though I picked it out). But for a kit with 3 backdrops and 4 lights...it seemed like a great deal. And I wasn't let down at all! While maybe not professional quality, it's perfectly fine. I disagree with the reviews about the quality of the backdrops...yes, they are thin and you wouldn't want to put them in front of a window, but I set it up in our living room with furniture behind it and it worked perfect. I didn't have any trouble with the light boxes either...they are actually the nicer kind that come pre-assembled (as opposed to the type where you have to insert poles that then fit into the light fixture)...all you do is kind of unfold them and press down on the ring in the middle...they pop out and and the ring snaps into place. So maybe they changed the design or... 5/5 Agent_Cooper - See all my reviews This review is from: LimoStudio Photo Video Studio Light Kit - Includes Chromakey Studio Background Screen (Green Black White), (3) Muslin BackDrops, Umbrella, Softbox, Lighting Diffuser Reflector, AGG1388 (Camera) After reading some of the negative reviews, I was nervous to order this kit (and by the way...it's not a 'verified' purchase because it was technically a gift from my wife so she ordered it with her account, even though I picked it out).

THEY DON'T TURN ON. When I plug them in, a little light comes on in the bulb...like a tiny led indicator light...but no bulb light..on all four. I assume this means there's a power pack or a control panel or something that I need to purchase with it...Idk, but since THERE WERE NO DIRECTIONS...I have no way of knowing. It's typical... something large and hard to pack back up and ship back for a refund...always has problems. The clips are a joke. They hold nothing. I had to buy my own clamps. I guess you get what you pay for. If it seems too good to be true... probably is. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 12, 2014

    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

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

    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

    Budget-friendly alternative

    I have been all over the place trying to find a good, cheap light tent to photograph my small jewelry pieces for my Etsy shop. I did quite a bit of research before buying this one and was actually pleasantly surprised. The tent itself is great, just the right size and surprisingly sturdy. The tripod was also unexpectedly sturdy and much better quality than my previous portable one, it holds up my Nikon D3100 fantastically and is very easy to use. To top it all off, the fact that it all folds up into a convenient carrying case which is really fantastic when you are short on extra storage space. I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the lamps....To begin with, they burn REALLY hot. So much so that it smelled like something was burning. They are also not bright enough by a long-shot! Not to mention, I accidentally knocked one over and it fell less than 2 feet to the ground on a carpeted surface and the light blew. But I did discover something that obviously most people... 4/5 christine - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great value

    First, let me say the shipping was FAST. I had this item the NEXT day, and I didn't request expedited shipping. (The company and I are both in Southern California, and that makes a difference, but it does mean they shipped it the same business day they received the order!)Now, to the product. This is my first time to use a light box, and I did a LOT of research before deciding on this one. I made a good choice. There are other, more expensive, light boxes out there, more powerful lights, etc., but for what I need -- the ability to shoot small products for my eBay and Amazon sales -- this is perfect. The fact that it fits into a compact carrying case is a huge plus. Not that I will necessarily be transporting it around, but the fact that it can be stored compactly and out of the way, is a big plus, and made my wife happy :)The unit itself it well constructed, comes with a camera tripod (although I seem to prefer to hand-hold my camera), and two lights... 5/5 KWJ (Los Angeles) - See all my reviews, August 21, 2010

    Great value for the money

    This is perhaps the cheapest of this kind of product that I found, and it does a pretty good job.The folding bag opens and turns into a 16" square box with diffusers on both sides and the back. The accompanying lights are small but strong enough for the job. There is a camera stand with a ball head. It had difficulty holding a FZ30 steady. I used a tripod instead. Smaller and lighter cameras should work ok on the stand.There are 4 color backdrops included, which is great. But the backdrops are little smaller than the available space in the box, unfortunately.The biggest items you could shoot without any problem would probably be 10 inches.The fact that everything folds and packs into a nice bag is a great convenience and space saver.Look at the user uploaded photos with this product for some ideas on the photo quality.The lights heat up fast and it may be difficult to keep the studio running for continuous... 4/5 A.
