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...
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...
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.
