Photo lighting sold on eBay?
Mar 22, 2013

Anyone ever bought a cheap lighting kit on eBay?

Looking at a kit from B&H: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/761605-REG/Impact_IMOC9SB2J_Octacool_9_Fluorescent_2_Light.html

Just wondering other than cheap stands how something like two of these might compare:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/18-Light-3600w-Photo-Studio-Photography-Video-Softbox-Continuous-Lighting-Kit-US-/390564400687

What should I beware of in terms of lighting? Any horror stories?

Thanks!
