Help me choose continuous lighting! JTL Superlight or Fancierstudio
4 months ago

Hi!

I operate a vintage bicycle shop (www.bikerecyclery.com) and need some better studio lights for taking pics of bikes. I currently run two junky Home Depot garage shop halogen lights rated at 1000w each, bounced off a white card on the ceiling. I'm using a gray background. I need better lights!

My two choices:

http://www.adorama.com/JTHL2000PLSK.html

These appear to be nearly pro quality (?) but have few reviews anywhere.  Comes with air cushioned stands.

or

http://www.amazon.com/Fancierstudio-Digital-Continuous-Softbox-Lighting/dp/B0050K3DW2/ref=pd_sim_sbs_p_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0DAZGTR2YT2HH3Z7J34F

Claimed 4200w, 5-bulb florescent heads.  Quality appears questionable, but higher wattage.

What do you guys think?  Or do you have a link to other kits/lights that would be better?  $300 is about my max, but maybe a bit more if you can sell me on it

Thanks!
