Top Customer Reviews
It's very reasonably priced, sits nicely on your light stand, holds an umbrella securely, and comes with a nice long cord and convenient switch.
For the price, it's worth having one on hand for when you need light and your flash decides to stop working. Or, like I suggested above, as a low cost way for converting your portrait setup to something which allows you to light a video.
Additionally the metal threaded insert in the light socket has come loose. This part provides both the electrical and structural interfaces between the unit and the light. This failure has rendered the device inoperable.
It's clear to me (an engineer) that the design & manufacture of this item indicates poor understanding of metal-plastic bonding techniques.
Save your money.
For a piece of equipment of this type, it is worth it to pay twice as much for a much better one from somewhere else.
I have purchased a fair amount of stuff from Cowboy Studio. This is a Chinese outfit based in Dallas that uses the "cowboy" thing to make them seem non-Chinese. The quality of their products varies greatly, but most of it is budget-oriented and much is not for heavy duty use. I had a pair of softboxes from them where the rods did not match the holes in the rings. They insisted they did. After much wrangling, I finally gave up, used pliers and a ton of elbow grease to remove the glued-on metal caps from one end of each rod and snipped off a half inch off the end to make them fit.
To get an idea of their approach to customer relations, click on a product photo on their site. Instead of having a transparent object over the photo with a link to the desired product page, they have a transparent object over the photo that triggers an alert when clicked telling you not to steal their product photos. Real class.

The metal lining in the socket came lose. I now have to line it up and make there is proper contact with the fixture I put in there. It works but not with a little play around.Published 2 months ago by Sean

Worked fine until the switch failed. This happened after only a few sessions. I've had this happen with two so far. Consider it a disposable item. Have a spare on hand.Published 13 months ago by Dr. Christopher Kent
