hey you guys/girls,

looking at buying some lighting for my home-studio. i plan on spending about $350-4$450, depending on what i can get for the money. i'd love something that can be used mainly inside, but might possibly be used outside as well. outside is not as important, but would be a plus. (or future upgrade)

any suggestions? i am really into portrait photography, and want something that will go with my setup already:

canon 350d body, hoard of lenses, and my Sigma 500DG Flash. your suggestions will be greatly appreciated. thanks so much.

Jon, the JTL Mobilight will fit the bill for sure. It is BY FAR the least expensive portable strobe on the market, and I've heard it does well. It can be AC or DC powered, and comes with a battery pack. Of course you'll still need a stand, umbrella/softbox etc, and probably another light at some point, but if I was faced with your budget this woud be my only choice. Also, I think they have a less powerful model as well, but I'd go with the 300ws version for growth and flexibility. Here it is:

Hope this helps,
