This lighting system comes with 3 flicker-free fluorescent, spiral bulbs. These bulbs are similar to the energy saver bulbs; they differ in that they are rated at 5500 degrees Kelvin; that is they are daylight balanced. Each 85 watt in fluorescents translates into 425 watts of light output. These long lasting cool lights emit very little heat and can stay on all day long without a problem. The Flashpoint Kit can be used with Digital Cameras or Camcorders and is great for shooting portraits, or still life

Easy to set up, easy to lug around. The lights are a little on the weak side, but I knew that going in. Great for smaller objects, but it was a stretch to photograph some of the crates I used as props. For those I added two flash units triggered from the camera.
Overall, I am very pleased with this set. At some point I will spring for something more, but for now, this is a great product at a decent price.
I assembled everything while watching TV in 30 minutes. Probably could have done it in less time if I were actively focusing. Assembly is easy, in other words.
Plenty of light. The stands seem, including the base and the latches for allowing you to extend the stands, seem surprisingly sturdy for a $149 budget kit. You can adjust the stands for wider stability if needed. The kit breaks down and packs away in the included bag in a matter of minutes. I put a bit of bubble wrap around the bulbs to make sure they're well padded. The black bag fit everything with room to spare.
The lights are fluorescent and did not flicker during the 20 minutes I was using them, giving off noticeably less heat than their incandescent counterparts. They are about 5500k, approximating daylight, and have lower energy consumption than incandescents. Personally, I like seeing what I am shooting instead of using flashes, and fluorescent bulbs were the way to go for me. Your mileage may vary. I used the lights in the evening, and turned off my regular house lights so I could control the color temperature better. This worked very well, and I was able to get some test shots quickly and effectively, without much maneuvering of the lights.
My only criticism of the kit is that I find the cords to be rather short. Considering that this is $149 and that a couple of cheap extension cords can easily solve this problem, this will not diminish the 5-star rating.
Last year, I used a 2-light system that my photographer friend had to photograph portraits for a wedding, something she had purchased for $200. I had to use my speedlight for fill light, something I wouldn't have had to have done if I had had the Flashpoint 3 kit. This system offers *three* lights, does not have incandescents, and is sturdier...and it costs $50 less.
Obviously, this is not a professional setup. It's $149!! No, this is a budget setup that works really well and offers outstanding value for the money.
