You can rent a kit once you get in-country for about $75-100 a day. Then you won't have to ship it nor search for adapters. The more stuff you travel around with, the bigger the hassle crossing borders (with carnets (sp?)) although that may have been mitigated by the EU.

Lowel lights seem to be the most portable. A couple of Totas frames and umbrellas are small, light and powerful.

HI, Joke Pars are not cheap, if you live in LA you can buy them with no problem I guess. I buy my stuff in Florida since in Central America it is very hard to find a srore or dealer of this kind of equipment. Try searching for www.barbizon.com in the web and you can choose the store that is nearest to you. A LTM kit like such described above may be around $2.500 to $2.800 US Dls. and the joker pars several thousands each one. If you want to check on prices right away maybe you can try www.bhphotovideo.com Good luck.

I used a small kino flow light that was powered by a small battey belt. It is good for handholding or for a nice eye light .
