Well worth the money
“I bought this outfit on a leap of faith, and was not disappointed. I was concerned about the power of the lights, but did not need to worry about it. other than blowing two fuses, I have had no problems. I will be buying more lights and larger soft-boxes, and the included ones don’t cover well for shooting multiple people. the kit is a great place to start if you are just starting out. I had no experience with studio lights and was a little scared getting into it. This setup made it easy. “ – By Eric B. Harding
“I received exactly what was advertised. I shipped the items to a hotel I was staying in downtown Miami. Something came up and I had to change hotels. The staff at Cowboy Studio was very helpful and was happy to assist me in redirecting my package to the new address so I was able to get my package before I left Miami. This was a good buy the only thing I had to buy separately was two extra remote triggers for the strobes. “ – By Keown C. Thomas
Great set, durable & can’t beat the price
“This set was pretty easy to figure out as well. I didn’t have experience w/ strobes at all but have been into photography for several years now. It was pretty easy to figure out how to set them up and how to trigger them – even without directions. The directions that came with the kit were in french and german so they were useless to my southern english twang, lol. None the less, I still managed to put it all together and in about an hour. Definitely worth the money. I had considered a more expensive “brand name” set but am glad I went with these instead. The day may come when I decide to upgrade but for now, these are perfect!” – By J. Armstrong
Works for me and I am happy
“Sounds nice and it is true, but my working capital is limited and I needed a strobe kit. I shoot photos as part of my industrial job. The Marketing Dept uses the images for sales literature. I have other Cowboy lighting gear and it always works for my needs so I went for these strobes. No, they don’t have all the fine controls and options of strobes costing a lot more money, but they do the job for me…” – By J. Layton
