Good Deal?

2 x Photo Video Strobe Flash Studio Lighting 2KIT150 - (eBay item 220147362807 end time Dec-04-07 16:31:53 PST)

I saw that on ebay and it seems to be a pretty good deal for a home studio type setup. The prices seem right....

Anyone ever used any of these or had any experience? .... I dont currently have studio lighting and i'd rather have strobes than continuous....I just thought they were more expensive so i just want to make sure they'd be good lights

Re: Good Deal?

I don't have personal experience of these but there are plenty of places on the web where the generic ebay style strobes are not very popular. Common problems include overheating, non-user-replaceable parts and controls which give little control over the power output. Then again, they're pretty cheap.

If you can stretch to it, I would get one of the entry level kits from a decent brand. At least that way you have some means of getting help if, say, you need to replace the modelling lamp or in case something goes pop one day.
