Help me choose continuous lighting! JTL Superlight or Fancierstudio
Aug 6, 2014


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:


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



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
