This review is from: LimoStudio-Photography Photo Portrait Studio 600W Day Light Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit (Camera) My thoughts:- Items arrived beautifully packaged with care- Everything seems to be of high quality- You get a carrying case (bag) and two plastic sleeves for the umbrellas- The light bulbs are very bright and very white- Absolutely perfect for someone that does YouTube videos- For $40 this is an absolute steal!- To the professional photographers complaining about these lights: If you guys are such serious photographers why are you spending $40 on your studio lights? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 14, 2013

    0 5/5 hollynicole323 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: LimoStudio-Photography Photo Portrait Studio 600W Day Light Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit (Camera) I'm very happy with the kit! I was at first very skeptical, also make sure to read what you are all getting, I did assume there would be 3 umbrellas but there are only 2. Super easy to set up and also fit in the bag nicely. I kept the packaging the bulbs came in and just repack them each time I put everything back in the carrying bag to keep them safe. I had read another review about how well it was packed for shipping and I agree, everything came safe and sound. Cords are good lengths. everything seems very durable ESPECIALLY for the price, I would probably pay double if I would've known the quality! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 2, 2012

    Not nearly as good as the comparably priced Cowboy Studios version.

    I purchased a similar three-stand lighting kit from Cowboy Studios on Amazon earlier this year, that also featured three stands, two umbrellas, sockets, bulbs and, importantly, a carrying case. That kit worked out fine, but I needed a second kit, so thinking the LimoStudio kit looked nearly identical, and was about $10 cheaper, I decided to take a chance and purchase the kit.The kit arrived, in workable condition, though it was immediately apparent that, while similar in profile and build quality, it was of different manufacture than the Cowboy Studios kit. The adjustment on the Limo-studio stands tighten via knob versus a simple folding clamp on the Cowboy Studios. This requires extra time to make height changes and also means having to double check the tightness to make sure the knobs are tight enough to hold the light.Second, the shorter edge/rim/back light only comes up to about waist height.

    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

    GARBAGE compared to the original

    This product has been completely changed, massively cheaped out and is now pretty much useless.#1 Depth of light cups SO short (about HALF the length of the original) that the bulbs extend way out. Impossible to use a filter, also ridiculously glaring. Why bother with a light cup at all, if the bulb is sticking out this far????? It's basically a naked bulb at this point.#2 Tripod legs have been shortened (about half the length of the original) and it is now VERY tippy and unstable. When it tips over the bulbs will crush as soon as they touch surface, since there is NO protection from the virtually non-existent light cups.#3 Cord has been shortened and won't reach anywhere unless you're right next to an outlet.#4 Lampstand has also been dramatically shortened and only extends about a foot now instead of the original 36".If you have the original light set DO NOT purchase this. You will be furious if you do. If you're really... 1/5 Sunny (Virginia Beach, VA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Would not buy again

    I bought the lights for about $56 on amazon, when I got them I immediately thought they seemed cheaply made, but they were bright and only $56. They work fine, everything came intact, and I'm very happy with the photos they allowed be to take.However, the lights are terribly made, after first thinking they seemed cheaply made I notice that the heads don't stay on well and will swivel down whenever possible. There is nut underneath the light fixture that is not tightened enough and even with needle nose pliers it is very had to tighten. After getting it tight I found that even accidentally turning the head partially would cause it to become loose again. One of the bulbs also did something, I'm not sure what, but I had to snap it back into it's base. And the fixtures the hold the bulbs are not firmly held in place as I had expected them to be.Over all the lights are ok. Great for not having a budget to speak of, but if not for that I would never buy them again... 1/5 dshan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

Everybody on Amazon is selling the same product no matter who it's labeled by.My suggestion is this, buy this kit. It's the chepest out there, but use the bulbs to light your front porch, they're that useless. Buy some 105 watt ones, and get the better quality ones. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 12, 2011

This review is from: Fancierstudio UL9004SB-69BWG 2000 Watt Photo Studio Lighting Kit With 6-9 Feet Muslin Backdrop and Background Stand-Black White (Camera) The point is this is an incredible value! Here is what you need to know!1. the lights that come with it are a bit weak, so plan to have the boxes up close and personal...or buy better bulbs2. you will want a Shark Steamer to get the wrinkles out. The backdrops arrive folded (which is too be expected) but there are a TON of wrinkles in them and they WILL show up in the shots. So you need to steam them out.3. the white backdrops are a bit thin so you will need to be careful of what is behind them when shooting...adjusts light position to reduce see through4. The head light stand cannot support enough weight to counter balance. instead of using weight, use rope to tie it in position/desired angle.Overall this is a STEAL of a buy and works great for our needs. I would not call this professional quality pertaining to rigidity but it is great for entry and intermediate level uses. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 6, 2013

This review is from: Fancierstudio UL9004SB-69BWG 2000 Watt Photo Studio Lighting Kit With 6-9 Feet Muslin Backdrop and Background Stand-Black White (Camera) Fancierstudio had a great price. It seems very unbeatable. The Backdrop support system seems a little flimsy, I would recommend getting sandbags to help support it. The Backdrops are exactly what I expected. I don't see any issues with them. They are a little thin.My biggest worry, and regret is the soft box lights. You will need to fit in an extra hour at least to get them put together and set up. They would work just fine if you could set them up once, and never move them.All in all, you get what you pay for. I knew I wouldn't be receiving top of the line equipment. I just got this to get started with for now.Thank you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 10, 2011

    Some small tweaks make it a worthwhile purchase

    I was a little skeptical to purchase this light box because of the reviews, but decided to go for it since it seemed that if I went any more upscale I would be paying a lot of money.I actually love it. I use it to photograph jewelry for my Etsy shop, and don't really have any high-end photography equipment. I needed something to diffuse light and brighten my pictures, and I didn't want to have to wait for those two hours during the day when the sunlight shines in my window just so. I set this up with three small desk lamps on each side of the box, and with my tiny Canon Powershot, the pictures end up pretty nice.Some things other reviewers have found inconvenient:1. Doesn't sit flat, it's slanted backwards -- I found that if you turn the box on its side, it sits pretty flat. There are velcro spots in each of the four corners at the back so rotating the backdrop is not a problem.2. Wrinkles in the fabric -- Iron them.

    It's not horrible but could be improved.

    I've used this for about six weeks before reviewing and I am still not sure this was such a great deal. You do get the tent and four backdrops in a pouch much smaller than the assembled tent. First, it really does need a warning label on the pouch stating that when you unzip the pouch and begin to remove the tent it will suddenly expand without warning. I'm not afraid to admit that it hurt the first time I opened it. After watching a video on Youtube, it's not too difficult to fold back up to fit in the pouch. You will get it down after a few tries. Just make sure you keep a firm grip on it until it is securely in the pouch or it will hurt.Depending on your purposes, this may or may not be a good fit. I purchased the 16x16 version mainly for photographing LPs (12") and 45s (7"). The usable interior dimensions are much smaller than 16x16. Not obvious to me in the stock photo is that there is a lip on the bottom that will prevent you from photographing... 3/5 Ken (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Neewer® 16x16 inch/40x40 cm Photo Studio Shooting Tent Light Cube Diffusion Soft Box Kit with 4 Colors Backdrops (Red Dark Blue Black White) for Photography (Electronics) I've used this for about six weeks before reviewing and I am still not sure this was such a great deal.

    Some small tweaks make it a worthwhile purchase

    I was a little skeptical to purchase this light box because of the reviews, but decided to go for it since it seemed that if I went any more upscale I would be paying a lot of money.I actually love it. I use it to photograph jewelry for my Etsy shop, and don't really have any high-end photography equipment. I needed something to diffuse light and brighten my pictures, and I didn't want to have to wait for those two hours during the day when the sunlight shines in my window just so. I set this up with three small desk lamps on each side of the box, and with my tiny Canon Powershot, the pictures end up pretty nice.Some things other reviewers have found inconvenient:1. Doesn't sit flat, it's slanted backwards -- I found that if you turn the box on its side, it sits pretty flat. There are velcro spots in each of the four corners at the back so rotating the backdrop is not a problem.2. Wrinkles in the fabric -- Iron them. The fabric is synthetic,... 5/5 banglesandbauble (Irvine, US, Canada) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It's not horrible but could be improved.

    I've used this for about six weeks before reviewing and I am still not sure this was such a great deal. You do get the tent and four backdrops in a pouch much smaller than the assembled tent. First, it really does need a warning label on the pouch stating that when you unzip the pouch and begin to remove the tent it will suddenly expand without warning. I'm not afraid to admit that it hurt the first time I opened it. After watching a video on Youtube, it's not too difficult to fold back up to fit in the pouch. You will get it down after a few tries. Just make sure you keep a firm grip on it until it is securely in the pouch or it will hurt.Depending on your purposes, this may or may not be a good fit. I purchased the 16x16 version mainly for photographing LPs (12") and 45s (7"). The usable interior dimensions are much smaller than 16x16. Not obvious to me in the stock photo is that there is a lip on the bottom that will prevent you from photographing... 3/5 Ken (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Neewer® 16x16 inch/40x40 cm Photo Studio Shooting Tent Light Cube Diffusion Soft Box Kit with 4 Colors Backdrops (Red Dark Blue Black White) for Photography (Electronics) I've used this for about six weeks before reviewing and I am still not sure this was such a great deal.

    A good sized tent for taking professional quality photos. It's easily portable if you know the trick for folding it back up.

This photo is a macro shot of my 18-55 kit lens. The colorful patterns are from the reflecting umbrella light. The focus is on the aperture blades and the long exposure was to bring out the glittery detail on them. Pentax K-5 f/20 20s iso 100 100mm.

P 51 Mustang Postage

plane, air
This is a Megabloks kit my son received for Christmas. Once he was finished, we took a photo of it (minus its' landing gear.) We placed the plane on a glass and shot it only using a light which we tore out of an old scanner. I went outside on a blue and cloudy day and shot a picture of the sky. I blurred the sky lightly and added a little saturation to then merged the photo of the plane onto that. Last I gave the prop a circular blur.
