#1 Depth of light cups SO short (about HALF the length of the original) that the bulbs extend way out. Impossible to use a filter, also ridiculously glaring. Why bother with a light cup at all, if the bulb is sticking out this far????? It's basically a naked bulb at this point.
#2 Tripod legs have been shortened (about half the length of the original) and it is now VERY tippy and unstable. When it tips over the bulbs will crush as soon as they touch surface, since there is NO protection from the virtually non-existent light cups.
#3 Cord has been shortened and won't reach anywhere unless you're right next to an outlet.
#4 Lampstand has also been dramatically shortened and only extends about a foot now instead of the original 36".
If you have the original light set DO NOT purchase this. You will be furious if you do. If you're really desperate and don't have anything to compare this to - maybe it will work for something.
However, the lights are terribly made, after first thinking they seemed cheaply made I notice that the heads don't stay on well and will swivel down whenever possible. There is nut underneath the light fixture that is not tightened enough and even with needle nose pliers it is very had to tighten. After getting it tight I found that even accidentally turning the head partially would cause it to become loose again. One of the bulbs also did something, I'm not sure what, but I had to snap it back into it's base. And the fixtures the hold the bulbs are not firmly held in place as I had expected them to be.
Over all the lights are ok. Great for not having a budget to speak of, but if not for that I would never buy them again and would not recommend them.
Now both of my bulbs have broken after almost nothing. First I knocked over one of the lights while it was in it's lowest position and it fell forward onto a carpet and the bulb broke (and yay mercury leaked out) then I was screwing in the second and it snapped off in my hand before even screwing half way down....today my Cowboy Studio replacement bulbs came (the 4 pack) and they are twice the length of the bulbs that came with the lights, and they don't even light the hood at all, they stick completely out and throw light everywhere.
Shortened legs makes the light very easy to fall over, and the extended out light bulb (due to the shortened light cup) makes it hard to put filter and light spreads out a lot more than you want.
Overall the size of the product is very small. The thickness of the wire and the size of light bulb on the picture also gives to a false impression of this product making it look bigger than it actually is. Actual size is about 12-15" tall (when extended out)
Still it's good enough for my needs, so I'm keeping it.
I purchased (2) of the the Cowboy Studios Table Top Studio Lighting Kits. At the time the item description was (2) lights per kit with stands that extend to 3 feet and contain 50 watt bulbs.
Cowboy Studios sent the wrong items....(2) lights with stands per kit that extend ~ 2 feet and contained 45 watt bulbs.
I contacted Cowboy Studios through Amazon about the mix-up.... Cowboy Studios never responded about rectifying the situation.
I am now the proud owner of (4) lights that are worthless to me as they are too short for my application needs and a product catalog that is behind schedule. Thanks CS...
DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!
note: should I hear from CS regarding this issue and they make it right, I will post again with the solution presented.
As many others have noted, the bulbs supplied were different than advertised, but I'm happy with them. They are 45 watt CFL's with a color temp of 5500k which is midday sunlight.
Every thing was super easy to setup and it all works, nothing broken etc. It is true that the bulbs stick out about an inch past the hoods. First off, just be careful and avoid clutter, tape down extension cords, etc. and you're less likely to knock these over, but also, you may wish to rotate the hood so one of the legs is pointing in the same direction. That way if it falls, it will be going sideways instead of straight forward, and you'll have a better chance of it surviving the fall. If you're clumsy, then anchor it down with something heavy.
Most of all, I'm thrilled with the quality of the pictures produced. Using these with a small popup light tent is working great.

good product. wish there was some sort of metal mesh taht would protect the bulbs, as the weight of the bulb and head are more than the short tripod legs. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Andres V. Martinez
