    I hope you're kidding... Studio strobes are worse than your TTL-enabled flashheads when it comes to hurting eyes with strong light.

    hmm.. looks like the one @ Eastgear
    does it comes with the softbox (maybe yes maybe no)?, snoot? honeycomb attachments? what kind of connectivity between the lights?

    if it does, then it's a good buy for small production at home - small products and half body shots @ ISO200

    It shows that its
    3 x 120W/S lights... rated at GN32
    180mm stands (er... 18cm??)
    2 softbox
    1 40" white/black umbrella
    snoot (whats a snoot?)
    soft carry bag..


    looks interesting...

    any idea at say 2-3m, what kind of aperture will 3 lights get u? (say a mainlight/fill light/back light kind of setup)

    EDIT: weird.. dunno why it shows 1/4 only.. anyway, I changed the link.. u have to click on the studio setup to get to the other page I was showing..

    I would said it is a decent setup starter kit for those who are interest to master studio skills and do not want to invest a 'bomb' for it.

    If I got the extra $$$, would definitely consider buying one and learn at home at your free time ...

    It is very very near my place walk there can reach, will definitely go and check it out .... hope not tempted to BUY ... Heard there is a better offer coming up ... wait and see ..

    Knight : Can reveal wat u heard about better offers? It's ok if you're wrong.

    and also, what can three 120W lights do? is it bright enough ?

    sounds interesting. i wouldn't need all 3 because i would combine with my electronic flash. The guide number is 32 at 55 degrees spread which is seems to be around the same output as a Sigma 500 or less.... the modelling light is useful

    If i keep 2 lights and sell off one light+stand/softbox at $200, anyone interested?
