Lighting Kit, Which one to choose?


Hi all,

I end up in searching with these products, so now which one you think I should get? Note all products are minimum 2000w/s.

Those are what I choose from my searching, could be there more but I tighted my search to these, so if you find something better with mimimum total power of 2000w/s then please post me a link to it, I don't ask for less total power, it is clear I look for minimum power of 2000w/s, and I think it is better if that 2000w/s distributed into 3 or 4 heads then it will be perfect, I can collect heads wether strobes or monolits or whatever but I like those min. total power w/s anyway.

  Yes, I also like the fact that it has umbrellas rather than softboxes. Most of the kits have small softboxes, which I donít like. I like big softboxes, but Iíd much rather have any umbrella than a small softbox. Good luck with your purchase, John Siskin

  Thank you very much.

I will see if I can earn alot of money then I will by peice by piece, I mean head by head and I will choose big softboxes as well instead of small, but with umbrellas sometimes if the subject is little close then the heat is can't be handled, so with softboxes I can use high power even with no big problem, I can by sofboxes larger size separately if I want and replace with that smaller one.

Thank you again.
