Very good value for this small professional quality lighting kit
on 26 February 2013
I've been looking around for cool white bulbs to use for indoor photography. This is one of the rares I found to give a color temperature of 5400K, closer to daylight (all other cheaper bulbs were rather around 6000-6500K so bluer).
Considering the high intensity (26W for a 150W equivalent) and the fact that the kit (feet, shade) were purpose-fit, I chose this one and I don't regret it as it is very good value!
The items were very well protected in the package (massive box containing a smaller one, and again well wrapped into that one)
It took me about 5min to attach all the pieces, which look sturdy. The lamp is stable, about 40cm height, the light intensity is very strong so would probably need to be diffused/reflected (tent, umbrella), the color temperature looks good with my SLR white balance set to daylight (5200K). I haven't tried it for a long time so I don't know if it would get very hot.
Overall very happy with my purchase, I can't wait to use it!
