4.0 out of 5 stars amazing edge to edge sharpness, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
amazing edge to edge sharpness. great resolution. very useable wide open at f1.8 infact best i have seen in any lens wide open. little vignetting that could see. I knocked off a star as the focus rings collects dust and bits as does the interior of the hood. but that's mr being picky. all in all on a A7r or A7s it's a challenger to medium format in my opinion.

not very well made. Shield is small and swords are poor. Could buy better at local pound shop. Made only for show and not for kids play fighting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited and flimsy but great value., 11 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The kit arrived in 2 days after ordering. The stands are a bit light and the tightening screws feel like they would not take being over tightened. The lightbox section is simple to erect, you just open it up and push the centre flange down over the bulb holder. Fit the bulb, which again feels like it may break if tightened too much. Caution and care are required throughout.

The performance is altogether another matter. The bulbs are rated at 135W supposed to be equivalent to 620W in tungsten old filament bulbs. This I really doubt and have issues with. For portraits of my kids I had to have the lightboxes 2 feet away from their faces and even then I could only use f5.6 90/1 sec at 400iso. Very limiting. Also having the lights so close meant the kids could not keep their eyes open as it was to bright for them. This is the problem with continuous lighting.

In summary:
POSITIVES:
great value
ok for product photography
ok for single adult close-up portraits

NEGATIVES:
A bit lightweight
not good for kids portraits
not good for more than 1 sitter unless you use high iso, then 2 people maximum.

Overall it maybe a cheap alternative to get light. However bear in mind its limitations and what you really need.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Good in Wind!, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am disappointed with this item. It is quite thin and not much bulk to it. I took it out to a breezy ridge in the Peak District. I thought it may hold off some wind but it was useless. May well have just wrapped a jumper around the mic instead. If someone can make a really top professional windjammer for the VMP mic I would love to buy it.

Good solid unit. Nice to hold. Looks good. Noisy as heck, can't here radio. Boils a bit too long, i just switch it off myself. Delivery very very slow. 3 weeks, not good enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars smart but slow, 9 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
nice looker. Can comb your hair in this baby. Nice to have a 4 slice unit as saves time during morning rush. Negative side is seems slow compared to last few toasters and not really big enough for large home-made bread slices. I just turn it around half way through. My unit does seem reliable and solid and does not get really hot on the outside.I did however have to wait a long time for the unit over 2 weeks.
