When your work relies on beautiful pictures that are crisp, clear, and detailed, you’re going to want a lighting kit that is going to give you exactly that. The Fancierstudio Professional Digital Video Continuous Softbox Lighting Kit is a compact studio kit that is able to put out 2,000 watts of light, thus giving you the desired lighting to make your photographs stand out beautifully.
With this kit, you will receive:
Since you receive three softboxes with adjustable stands, you have the ability to control the way the light hits the subject. This kind of control lets you get the desired photograph with ultimate detail and clarity. Each bulb has an on/off switch, allowing you to alter the light intensity and establish a lighting ratio.
Of the people who purchased the Fancierstudio Professional Digital Video Continuous Softbox Lighting Kit, 70% left 4 and 5-star reviews. Of these reviews, the consumers said that the system was easy to assemble if you’ve had experience in the past. They said that they liked that you could turn on/off each light bulb, thus having great control of the lighting.
Speaking of the overall light quality, the consumers said that the lights emit bright light, which they feel is perfect for video or photography work.
On the other hand, the remaining 30% of consumers who purchased this kit were less than pleased with their experience—leaving 3-star or below reviews. These folks seemed to have the complete opposite things to say about the product. They felt the light the soft boxes provided wasn’t strong enough, the overall construction and durability of the stands were shoddy, and the assembly of the system was aggravating and difficult.
One customer even went so far to say that this was a fine purchase if you didn’t mind throwing the kit away five months later. Ouch!
When you look at other lighting kits available on the market today, this one seems is reasonably priced at just under $130 (or $200 when it isn’t on sale). It comes with the three light stands, 3 softboxes, 15 bulbs that are individually controlled, and a convenient carrying case. It sounds like a decent choice for the price, right?
However, when looking at the reviews, the 30% of consumers who didn’t enjoy using the kit is enough to give you some pause. We feel that this is a good starter kit if you are just getting into photography. Is it going to last you a lifetime? Probably not. Will it work for the time being? Yes, it is a great kit to use while you save up money to get something a little sturdier.
