    It all depends on what type of photography you want to do really. This set is a "hotlight" setup. There is no strobe. You can use lights without a strobe, you'll have to use slower shutter. But there are alot of opinions and types of lights. You'll just need to know exactly what you wanna do. Novatron has good lights and they are affordable.


    Thanks,

    Thomas

    Thanks Thomas, yes, you may see from other threads of mine that I have a lot to learn.. I think I'll definitely hold off on buying anything until I know more of what I need...
    Thanks for answering.'

    I can't believe how low the price is for what you get. Feels like there's a catch. Low quality?

    they are just lights, not strobes, u can get the same quality light from a $5 drop light at a hardware store, the only thing of any value are the stands
