Thread: Home studio setup

    Default Re: Home studio setup

    guys, i am really confused.someone(dun ask me who hor) pm me and said what the hell would i need a 500-1000watter.

    then someone said cheena brand good enough.



    i just wan to setup to play play only.i have no intention to go professional at all.and yes, that includes losing my current job, i still wont go into photography for a living.
    that's something i worry.buy now, sell later.if that's the case, that's why i will nvr consider cheena brand.

    can u guys believe someone offered to buy my NIKON 80-200 at 700?
    so, if it's the cheena lights i'm selling, u think i will get offers of $100?i'm quite sure i would.

    oh well...

    go and play in a rented studio to know what you need or don't need
    everything you buy brand new and sell 2nd hand sure to lose lots of money one.

    just play play then buy 2nd hand lor

    errrr.... does that mean that we are not going to japan?

    Studio rental not really that ho tan lan, have to take into account rental of space and that total cost of lights there are well over 10K. If you are buying to play play only, shouldnt you get cheena lights instead?

    i think u got me wrong.
    i meant i dont wanna buy a 300watter, then later realised not powerful enuff, then i would have to sell it and get a 500watter or maybe a 1k watter.

    AND

    i dont want to buy something that has absolutely no resale value because if i find i eventually dont like studio photography, i cant even sell the items.

    duh....i better stop saying cheena brands has no resale value else i will be offending alot of people i guess.

    Well, branded lights also dun have resale value wat. Brand new broncolor lights costing 10k sell 2nd hand at 5k also nobody want.

    no lar it's not offensive, like you, i'm a consumer too.

    basically not just lights but anything else, you get wat u pay for. if on budget then pple dun mind using the china brands first, then if they need to, can upgrade. if unlimited budget, then even bowens and elinchrome are lousy brands...

    budget aside, the most impt thing is still the photographer.

    i use to light with off shoe SB800s... DIRECT. much harder, but still can! and very portable! i still use them instaed of lugging heavy strobes around.

    aiyo!i give up!

    u are talking about 5k at USED price.how many people can cough up 5k to buy something over forum?
    not to mention your initial capital for that is 10k!!!
    look at a cheaper scenario my dear.

    cheena lights eg, 500.
    resale 100?150?

    switz lights, 1k, resale 700?800?

    I still think it applies mah. Even at 1k, 2nd hand price will be somewhat nearer to 500 than 800. Replacement parts for strobes are really costly, think this is why ppl pay much lesser for 2nd hand.

    Aiyah anyway, it's best to go see see look look in studios and get a hang. Maybe you can decide better from there on.
