Hello,



I am starting a Mobile portrait studio and am trying to find a good economy light kit.

From what I have read it seem like strobe are the way to go over hot lights. I was look at these 2 kits any help would be great.

Try looking at the links in the 1st post in this forum. Also, use the SEARCH function for this forum to find out what you want.

As an aside....if you are new to studio lighting, hot lights are not a bad choice...(you will learn studio lighting much faster). In fact, they are a much better choice than cheap strobe kits. If you want strobes, the best deal on quality units can be found at: http://www.alienbees.com

I agree with Kalypso, if you don't know what you are doing hot lights are much easier to learn with and if you really want strobe look at the alien bees.

Those kits you point out are very under powered one has 45w/s lights the other is around 100w/s. That is about the same output as small to medium sized on camera flash units.

As with anything you get what you pay for a most annoying thing.

For a mobile portrait studio, it seems you would want battery power. The lights you linked to don't appear to have battery power. Check out the Norman 400b battery to power their heads, or Alien Bees, or Quantums if you can afford it.

Hope this helps,
