The PhotoSEL LS21E52 Softbox Studio Lighting Kit - 2 Light Kit is an ideal kit for portraits in a confined area or product photography, and can be combined with a light pod or pop up light tent.
If you have been trying to shoot pictures with an accurate colour representation of the items you are photographing, it is very likely that you have been relying on special filters and/or software editing to improve the results. With the PhotoSEL LS21E52 Lighting Kit, this may well be a thing of the past. Rather than providing inferior quality 6400K 50-80 CRI light bulbs, this kit includes two high quality 5500K 90+ CRI fluorescent light bulbs. Set-up is easy: plug the lights in, place them on the ground, and turn them on. The result is 5500K light output that's ideal for taking digital shots by collectors, arts and crafts hobbyists, sellers, archivists, and desktop publishers. The lighting kit can also be used for DV talking head shots, digital still portraits, and webcam desktop video conferencing.
The lighting kit provides a soft uniform diffused light. The front and inner diffuser on each softbox are removable, offering hard or soft light options. The lighting kit comes supplied with two 85W 5500K 90+ CRI 5000lm daylight fluorescent light bulbs. Also included are two 40 x 60cm softboxes, two bulb holders, two power cables with in-line switch, two 80-190cm light stands and one carry bag.

I bought this light stand set for two reasons: portrait photographs, and creating even lighting for a green screen background.
What's in the box:
- Two Photosel light stands,
- Two photographic white daylight bulbs,
- Two light heads with on/off switches and UK 3-pin plugs,
- Two 40x60cm soft boxes (silver inner, black outer),
- Two inner diffuser sheets,
- Two outer diffuser sheets,
- Eight metal support rods,
- Carrying bag.
The light stands are fairly lightweight but totally adequate for supporting the heads and softboxes. The softboxes themselves are very well made, and the only let down is that the light heads are made of a cheap plastic which feels like it is going to break in your hands.
One nice surprise is that the light heads include a slot for a photographic umbrella, so you can add those to your lighting arrangements without having to buy anything else.
The bag supplied is a bit dubious. It is about 5' long with a zip at only one end, so it can be difficult to actually get the kit into the bag and there is no arrangement I can find that does not result in masses of unused space. Coupled with the fact that the carrying strap is utterly useless, this makes the bag a bit of a white elephant. Sure it will keep everything together and clean when it's in your car, but you won't be dancing for joy about how neat and portable your lighting kit is.
The bulbs on the other hand are absolutely smashing - in the 'great' sense, not the damaged sense. The light is clean, strong, even, and super-pure looking, and the softboxes perform admirably with these bulbs. Each CFL bulb comes in polystyrene packaging surrounded by a cardboard sleeve, so keep this and use it to protect the bulbs during transit and storage.
I would say that this set is just at the edge of costing too much for the quality of the product, but having said that the kit is basically "what you need" at a reasonable price. Putting together the same setup by sourcing the individual bits elsewhere is likely to cost more with variable results.
If you want to light photos at home, you're just starting out with studio photography (and perhaps don't want to plough too much money into it just in case it turns out you are rubbish), or you want some cheap lighting for film/DV, then buy these. If you're in the market for a kit comprising more robust products then you are probably going to need to spend a bit more money.
For me, this kit ticks all the boxes. So it's five stars! I am not docking Photosel a star just for that stupid bag. It is after all included as a courtesy.
Then there is the softbox itself... beyond the over zealous branding all over the place, the softbox is not so bad but has one MAJOR flaw. The amount of tension on the tiny metal bars that keep the softbox stretched is quite scary and has lead to me tearing one, and a constant fear that if I slip its going to end up in my eye causing some serious damage. I'm not exaggerating here, it requires an enormous amount of tension to keep the softbox straight on an extremely thin metal bar.
Overall these softboxes are ok, but they are certainly not worth over £100. They should be more like £50 and ebuyer are selling the exact same kit for about £40.
