These are very average. They work. They are somewhat cheaply made, but you will not get better quality at this insanely low price point. These are priced very cheaply. For the cost, I think they're excellent. The low cost combined with the fairly cheap build quality equals 4 stars.
These work fine inside. I would NOT try to use these for location shooting. The stands will not hold up to any abuse such as resisting wind. The clamps on the stand are plastic compression clamps, and they will wear out in time if you are constantly setting them up and taking them down. For studio work, where you set them up and basically leave them alone, they'll be fine. If you do need to use them outside now and then, be sure to have some sandbags to hold them in place. They're super light weight.
1. Very cheap to buy.
2. Nice, even light.
3. Each light is switched on the 5-light heads.
4. Boom 4-light head is switched in pairs.
5. Stands are decent quality for indoor use.
1. Even at "3800 watts", they are not very bright. I used both softboxes and the boom light with a SP 24-70mm Tamron lens, 5D MkII camera set at f/4.5, 1/60th, ISO 100, and that was just to get the subject bright without blowing out highlights. The background was white acrylic so it doesn't absorb any light. 1/60th at f/4.5 is slow. I do mostly product photography so I can easily live with slower shutter speeds. I don't know how well these could work for video with any motion.
2. Stands are decent quality. Just decent. The softbox stands are lightweight with smallish spreads at the base, and are prone to tipping over. Make sure you turn the softbox so it points out over one tripod leg and you will be fine. You can add a sandbag if stability is critical. The boom light stand is much wider at the base. Still, make sure one leg is parallel with the boom arm and light.
3. Mine came with one bad bulb and no instructions.
4. One 5-light head was obviously used - it had yellowing over the top 3rd that looks like a heat pattern.
5. The interior of the carrying bag that everything came in was filthy. Actually dirty and dusty, not just some bits of packing material.
They're very easy to set up if you go to YouTube and look for one of the videos. Just search on "Fancierstudio light setup".
It's easiest if you mount the light head on a tripod when attaching the softboxes. Bring the light head up to just about eye level. Set the opened softbox cover over the light as per below.
Basically, the softbox cover goes over the "head unit" with the lights facing out. The small end of the softbox cover will go around the light head behind the lights, with the lights inside the shiny cover facing the large square opening. The rods go into the little holes around the light head, and into the corners of the softbox cover. You'll see the nylon material sockets in each corner. Unfasten the velcro on the small end of the cover and just tug it over the light head. Make sure you put the smooth rod end into the softbox cover sockets, and the ends with the "shoulders" go into the holes around the light head. Choose the holes at 45 degree angles - there are 8 holes, you only use 4. The softboxes go on vertically as in the image. Tug the covers together around the light heads and close the velcro openings to prevent light leaks.
Put the lights in. Don't screw them in by holding the glass - they glass is thin and they can break pretty easily. Just tighten slightly using the round base of the bulb.
You have an internal baffle (an internal diffuser) for each softbox. These go over the lightbulbs inside the softbox to prevent hotspots from your lights. They have velcro on little elastic bands. In each softbox are some velcro tabs behind the softbox rods. Spread these out around the rods, press the velcro pieces together, and that's it.
The outside diffuser covers come inside-out. Flip them around, tug them over the corners, and press the velcro together on all four sides. Adjust if needed. Mine had some small bits of packing material stuck to the diffusers with static. They won't hurt anything, but they look bad. Brush them off first - it's slightly easier :)
The boom arm softbox works the same way. The only difficult part of this is getting the clamp set up. Your clamp has two main parts. One side fits the boom arm rod, the other fits the top of the stand. Just find the hole for the boom arm that fits the best and will tighten up properly. Once you find that, the rest is easy.
3 of my 60w CFL's were broke on arrival
1 of the 2 5 Outlet Headlamps were DOA as well
Despite the issues which they are supposedly shipping out replacements for as we speak (Contacted them over the phone)
They are far more sturdy than people make them out to be
I tightened up a few of the bolts on all of the stands and I can move them around and adjust them without any 2nd thoughts
2 tips to Fanceirstudio though
1. Why not ship 3 of the stands used for the Headlight? They are far more high quality than the other 2 Softbox stands
Just add $20 to the price and get better review on the build quality.
2. Hire a quality control team. If you have one fire them all.
The instructions might as well not even exist. Look it up on YouTube, that's what saved me. Although, I still haven't figured out how to set up the overhead light, couldn't find a tutorial on that part.
I tried contacting the company for instructions; their "Live Chat" button isn't a button, you can't click on it, it's just an image. Emailing the company accomplished nothing, no reply. So... I guess I'll just have to wing it.
Setting it up was a baffling ordeal, even with tutorial videos. Even when you know what to do from setting up the first one, you still have to wrestle with the other two softboxes.
For the quality, it's a steal. The quality of light they put out is quite lovely, even with bulbs missing entirely. The stands seem solid. They pretty much take up my entire spare bedroom, though - I didn't think they'd be so big!
I'd recommend it. Just expect to spend an hour or more setting them up the first time. It took about 2 hours for me, and I'm still not done with the overhead one.
