What Lighting Kit Should I Purchase?
Posted 18 November 2008 - 10:39 PM
I am starting a small production company and we have some jobs lined up to make small commercials and skits. Initially I had planned to just rent lights, but costs are adding up and I feel it would just be smarter to purchase them.
After much craigslist and ebay searching, I feel there aren't any good used lighting kits available out there or at least not at this time.
So anyway, I am writing here because initially I was looking to purchase the the Arri Softbank 571984 kit for $2,750.84 (link below)
and I would like your opinion on this kit or any other lighting package you might recommend. We will be shooting a majority of the time with the HVX 200. Are there any lights you guys feel look really good shot on HVX? We are willing to spend between $2,500 - $3,500
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Another soft light that I've had good luck with is Lowell's Rifa. Quick and easy to setup with lots of photons per watt.
