    Nice!
    What kind of lights?
    Did that cute baby come with them? Or did you have to pay extra?

      It's a very cheap 3 light kit with soft boxes and 55W daylight fluorescent bulbs.

      Which brings me to the question... Do you know some nice bright 3200K E27 dimmable LED bulbs with good color rendition? Where do you research and buy your lamps?

        Well 'dimmable' is where things get very sticky with LED bulbs. While many advertise it, few can do it while delivering accurate color rendition.
        I never did get any, but I did find some very serious industry materials about maintaining color accuracy for high-end installations like art galleries.
        I'll try to find those links again for you.

          These aren't cheap but these Fiilex support many different temperatures and can be dimmed from 100% to 10%. The Q1000 can dim down to 0%. They have high CRI and TLCI.

            These Fiilex lights are insane. KILLER product.

            Hey Fauxto - did you mean LED fixture like this Fiilex light? Or did you mean basic LED bulbs to screw into standard home type fixtures and china balls?

            I found this on a quick search:
            https://www.earthled.com/collections...ant=1265473080

            These style of LED bulbs seem to frequently be set at about 2700k instead of 3200.....interesting. Must be something inherent to the manufacturing...

            EDIT: I just ordered 4 of these bulbs because I realized that while only 60watt equal - they will be great to have around to use as bulbs in practical fixtures.

              Brand and model of the kit please? Did you get them online? Where? Thanks.

                Glad you like the Fiilex! They're on my wish list. As for home LEDs, I just put in three LEDs over my kitchen island that draw a total of 13.5 watts but are giving me 120 watts and they actually seem brighter. They replaced 300 watts. The bulbs will outlive me!

                  Ok, I understand that a LED solution may not be feasible for what I'm looking for.

                  Where do you buy your fluorescent E27 bulbs?

                  I'm looking for 50W+ ones, balanced, tungsten WB and flicker-free.

                          That price is hard to believe! Even includes a counterweight for that arm, and a bag.

                            There are actually a lot of kits like this out there Rick, many have multiple bulbs in each fixture for greater brightness.
                            Now, they're all super flimsy, and the softboxes won't withstand many setups and teardowns, and the bulbs are all huge green-spike monsters....but I got one of these for the specific task of only lighting a studio green-screen and for that they work perfectly and are one hell of a bargain.
