    I shoot real estate photography and wanted a simple setup for fill lighting. I decided to go with these because of the features for the price being hard to beat. I originally wanted rechargeable lights but figured most (if not all) homes on the market have their A/C turned on I’d save the money.

    Not much thought put into this product. The manual was sub-par and didn't include too much details around using the light sensor to trigger the flash. The sensors are too slow for this purpose. It also didn't include any cables for connecting to a camera hot-shoe, which would have been a simple cheap addition. Options for remotes would have been helpful as well. The tripod and reflectors are decent quality. Overall, not a horrible product, but could have been much better for not much more work.

    Great features, great quality, but sometimes has a few issues that make it fall short of being perfect (in my honest opinion). The flash system on one of the heads doesn't register when the flash strength is set too low. The other head doesn't seem to have this issue, as it flashes even if the dial is turned all the way down the minimum. A minor issue, like I said, but can be a little annoying to deal with. Also, can't really beat the price for what you get!

    These lights really do not have enough power for good portraits. I had to supplement with my speed light in order to make this workable during a sunny morning on the east side of my house with large windows. They are nicely made and do fire when my camera flash fires, and they are easy to put together and store. I am considering using the stand/umbrella for continuous lighting (with new bulbs) because the strobes are very weak.

    Terrific lighting set for basic lighting projects

    I needed the set to shoot portraits. The lights set up easily. The break down is painless and transporting the set from job to job no problem. The two types of umbrellas offer soft fill or brilliant spot lighting and the included lights are triggered by the build-in flash on my camera. The set is all I could have asked, considering the very reasonable price.

    It's OK, if it works with your camera

    I had to return this because it didn't connect to my camera, even though the box said it worked with almost any. I have a Cannon 70D, and without some type of adapter it doesn't connect to it. It also takes a while to charge the flash, longer than I would have expected in 2016.

    Very simple and relatively easy to use. I found the only difficult part trying to figure out how to make only one flash fire - unsure if you can do this or not. Other than that, it is helpful that the box is utilized as a carrying case and it works well with my Nikon DSLR.

    This is a great starter lighting option, works great just as the product mentions. The lights are not all too powerful so I wouldn't recommend using it for far away lighting portraits. For the price I thought it was a good buy.
