5.0 out of 5 stars a great product for an awesome price!, November 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CowboyStudio Photography & Video Portrait Umbrella Continuous Triple Lighting Kit (Camera)
I ordered the items on mon with checking transfer. I apparently typed something wrong and they sent me an email with issues with my bank and I needed another form of payment on tues, I fixed that the same day. I got an email that stated I would receive my kit anywhere from Nov. 5 to Nov 16. I was surprised when I received it 3 days later on Nov. 5!

PROS:
not only where the umbrellas huge, it came with a reflective shield that's not listed in the listing. it goes on the outside of the white umbrellas. The stands felt real sturdy and good standing. the lights were amazingly white. I never seen such a white bulb. lol sooooo bright.

CONS:
one of the light sockets didn't work on arrival, however I emailed them sunday at 11pm, and received email stating they already sent out another product on monday at 10am with tracking info. I can't believe the service! from them! they look cheap, but its definitely worth the price.
the bag does not look like the bag in the pic. the bag only holds two stands and two umbrellas, no room for anything else.

You can not go wrong with this set up for this price at all.

i'd buy it again if I needed to ;) hit me up if u have questions on it, I'll answer them!

How tall are the stands for the $49 price?

I could make it be 7" if i wanted. With the leg stands spread to the fullest for the best sturdiness, you'd get it to be about 6" and 9". hope that helps!

I found another set up on here for 39.00 but it is only 2 stands instead of 3. However, everyone is complaining about the bulbs that come with those. I was wonder if you had a chance to try this product yet? Do they seem bright enough too you? Or would I need to invest in brighter or different bulbs if I went this setup?

Thank you for your time and the review.
Karen

sorry it maybe a bit grainy, it's because I had a high ISO, and no flash. The bulbs will perfect!

email me at minh81n at yahoo dot com and I'll see if I can get ya a pic!
hope this helps!

Hi -- thanks for posting your review. Did the stands fit well in the bag? Is the bag the size as noted in the picture?
Thanks!

The two stands have their own mini bag each except for the mini stand. So (2) mini bags. Then there's a bugger bag that fits two normal size stands and two umbrellas. And it fits tight. Nothing else fits. The bag is not the bag in the pic

After using them for some time now, do you still feel it was a good buy? I'm new to this and find all the choices overwhelming! Thanks!

how does this set up work is the lighting consistent the whole time staying on always or is there some type of adaption you have to use between the camera and the lights?
