I am intrested in buying Flolights over kino flo lights. Has anyone ever used these? Here is the website:
http://flolight.com/

Maybe someone can give me some insight on this.

All the best,
Joe

The Flolights are a good, basic design, but they are not as versatile as the Kino Diva or Mole Biax. They can only be mounted one way and their reflectors are not as efficient. They are made of metal so they are relatively heavy, and they only recently introduced a soft case, but I still think they'll get really banged up over time. They are cheaper than KinoFlo but you also get less for your money. When you build them up to about the same then the price is very close, at which point I'd rather have a Kino Diva. But if they're for personal owner use as opposed to something you'd have other crew members or renters use, then they'll do just fine. Since they will include a set of bulbs free, I would say to get the daylight and then buy Kino (or Osram) tungsten. The bulbs Flolite offers are poor in CRI (color rendition index) but high in output. I'd rather go with better color, which you will get with the daylight over the tungsten.
