“This kit works well. The stand is as sturdy as other lighting stands I have. The adapter mounts securely. The umbrella rod fits well through the adapter and adjusts properly. My flashes, 430exII and Sunpak 363 mount securely onto the adapter. I just might purchase another of these kits. “ – By John Guarino
Very useful starter kit for those who are not sure
“Despite these shotcomings, this is a fantastic value for the price, particularly if you never tried umbrellas before. The provided umbrella is a soft diffuser reflecter/passthrough and is good only for closeup lighting (3-8′) because it does not reflect or come with a reflector. The kit did not come with instructions, but pointed to a link to download the instructions. I was able to figure it out myself in a couple of minutes without using the link.” – By Mr. Vijay Venkataraman
Gets the job done
“The umbrella is pretty small as far as umbrellas typically go, but I can’t really complain; the light is still very very soft. The umbrella mount feels cheap, but anyone who has any respect for their equipment shouldn’t have any difficulty making it last. The stand is pretty light and extends up higher than I’ll ever need…” – By Duncan C. Spaulding
Can’t beat it for a starter light setup
“After reading reviews for this product I had set my expectations very low but couldn’t pass up the deal. What I received was clearly not meant for high volume industrial use but is of surprisingly good build quality. The umbrella is the chintziest part of the whole thing but really is not bad at all. All of the important parts are metal and very solidly constructed. A great starter set, ideal for the hobbyist. “ – By Kevin & Chris
Happy with this product
“Overall I’m happy with this product. The stands are sturdy even at full height. My one complaint about this package is that the umbrella swivel does not angle the umbrella so the flash points to the center. In fact the umbrella hole is at a straight 90 deg to the bracket so there is no way it could have ever been tilted. There is another package that has a different swivel that is the same price. Search for it. “ – By Raleigh Beringer
Great Setup For What You Pay
“If you are looking to get into a portrait setup with a minimal investment, this kit is great. All the parts are fairly solid and fold into a very small bag. I bought one to make sure it wouldn’t fall apart during the first use. I was very satisfied and will be ordering a couple more. You can achieve soft quality portraits either by firing a flash through the umbrella or by turning it around and bouncing off of it. As a previous reviewer said, “this kit has a removable hot shoe mount” which makes it great for mounting other lights on.” – By Steven Bagley
