oh.. my bad.. theres typo error, supposed to be how instead of who...

and yah... am searching the net for more information thou... nevertheless i would like to hear from the locals here.

different people have different styles in working and methods in getting the right effects. thanks Del, for your advice, really appreciate it.

one thing, the Flash sync cord found on the strobes, are they supposed to be attached to the camera or the flash unit of mine... basically i do not know if the sync cord can actually fit in.. because the hole dun looks fitting in too..... :dunno:

some brands have different jack size for the sync cord, so u have to see which brand you are using, but to camera, iirc, should be all using PC Sync terminal, if your camera do not have that, just get a 10 bucks ISO hotshoe flash to PC Sync terminal convertor. or get a wireless trigger, either just IR, or get a RF set.

#3 light Bulb in reflector bowl ?? Diy? seems like a cheap way to get a good amount of light, though controlling will be tougher.
#4 Redhead - 800W as confirmed in #6. Flood to spot control to vary the beam spread. intensity increases towards spot.

#7 Seems to be a frame for bouncing light or shining light thru'. material will affect its actual use. If the material isn't opaque, you can use it in front of lights to soften further. if it's opaque, then use it as a bounce.

Oh and remember your house outlet is usually a 13amp point, so max wattage is 2700++W (13x220). Try not to max it unless you really have to. Power cables can get hot easily, so dont bunch them together; those power cables that come in drums can be a fire hazard if not used properly. Advisable not to use multisocket adapter plug; have seen them melt after long continuous usage of 1.5 to 2KW. - if you need more than 13amp, draw power from another circuit point.

Continous light fixtures get hot and fast. Use gloves and have sufficient ventilation/(air-conditioning if portrait shooting or other temperature sensitive)

Have fun experimenting.

wow.. CP sponsored you all these stuff or you bought all of them without knowing what they do?

Anyway, attending a studio lighting course or reading the manuals is a good start, you won't want to try changing the softbox and break the strobe tube in the process.
