1.0 out of 5 stars GARBAGE compared to the original, May 4, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography Table Top Photo Studio Lighting Kit - 2 Light Kit (Electronics)
This product has been completely changed, massively cheaped out and is now pretty much useless.

#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.
