Summary: While this kit doesn't have everything, it's got what most people need when they're starting up their own video production business or if they're looking for a solid yet basic light kit. It's very easy to set up and break down, and you can stuff it all into the rugged carrying case when you're between jobs. I've worked with Lowel products for a few years now and the investment is worth it! These things can take a beating and still perform well.
Summary: I just bought this kit having never purchased a light kit before. I have to say I'm impressed with the quality of the lights and stands that are included in this kit. The equipment is well worth the money for what you get. I really like how the gell holders and gells are included because I don't have to buy them separately. I have used the light kit for two interviews so far and I have to say I'm pleased with its performance.
Summary: With the four different lights, this kit give good flexibility. I added a few dimmers and got some below-500-watt lamps for newer video cameras since the brighter lighting is not always needed.
