hi just wondering if this is a good package to start out with or any better suggestion??

any advise would help

It is really difficult to recommend lights that are advertized as 800 watts, when flash lights are specified in joules (or watt-seconds Ws), and a 40 stop range is totally impossible.

The claim to be designed for easy use is fallacious. The power input socket is above the main controls and means the mains cord would hamper access to them the whole time the unit was in use...

... either that, or it has been photographed upside-down, which would not surprise me...("40 stops!")

Modelling lights are a bit feeble, too, at 100 watts only.
