    So i got this in a few days back, I have had a little time to play with it but not much.

    What you get.

    2 Umbrella stands

    2 Flash bulbs

    2 heads

    White umbrella

    Black/Silver Umbrella

    Hotshoe – PC adapter

    Carrying bag

    2 PC cables.

    Build quality

    Umbrella stands – Fine for the price. They extend up to 7 feet in height, easy to adjust, and the bulbs screw right in. They are lightweight and not the sturdiest things out there, but more than enough for thier purposes. any outdoor shooting, you will want to consider beanbags or stakes if you are on soft ground.

    Flash bulbs- awwwhh man these things are pretty cool. First time playing with studio equipment so keep this all in perspective. So you plug the bulb into the head, flip on the power switch. A green light lets you know the bulb is alive, the amber light means its ready to fire. I have used these in several settings already and the flash detectors on these rock! Not once have i had a misfire! The flash ONLY when they see a flash! I tried to trigger them by flipping a room light on and off as fast as i could, they wouldnt fire. I have hit shutter speeds of about 1,500 and they sync up pretty good! So far i have been unable to make them slip up, and i have tried! I am shooting with a Nikon D40 with the pop-up flash, and an SB-600. it triggers on either fine. TTL mode is a No-No! as they WILL prematurly discharge off the TTL pre-flash. I set my SB-600 on Manual with 1/64 power and it has no power triggering them even in a large room with vaulted ceilings.

    PC Hotshot Adapter. I dunno, it works, but it feels like a piece of junk. I dont know if i expect it to last or not. The PC cables are short also. 4-5 feet tops, so yer better off triggering with a flash IMO unless you want to upgrade the Hotshoe adapter. Honestly, even without this thing the whole setup is still a great deal at this price. So, this is unimportant.

    Umbrellas. Not huge, but they seem to collapse / expand just fine. Light weight. Some people complained they got 2 white umbrellas, i got one of each. i rule.

    The carrying bag, i have another one identical to this from a 9ft collapsable background support stand from Steve Kaiser. This one is just smaller, other than that, it is a clone. like a Mini-Me.

    Anyways, i JUST got the bag in today. Like a lot of people ordering through coyboystudio they forgot to send something in the order, and like a lot of other reviewers coyboy studio immediatly mailed me a bag and got it here quick. great service! That said, the bag is better than expected. I expected a bare bones glorified canvas sack with a crappy zipper. Instead i get a pretty well designed back with an internal compartment on either side with a decent zipper, padded throughout with 1/8th inch padding. it has a side pocket, and can be opened down the middle or on the end. Im sure it will fit everything just fine. if not, i will edit my review.

    Summary

    This is worth the price along for the bulbs, stands, and umbrellas. Throw in a shoddy PC hotshoe adapter that works, and a decent carrying bag and this is a no brainer. I dont think you can possible get better gear for this price. if you can, please let me know, cause im pretty impressed. Everything works flawlessly, and while it is not of professional build, for the price it cannot be beat.

    EDIT:

    The bag is not really large enough to accommodate the stands, umbrellas, bulbs, and the rest of it….. it fits my manfrotto Tripod and ballhead great though, plus room for my monopod.

    have a Hakuba p100 bag, it fits this kit perfectly.

    I am an amateur photographer that wanted to set up a quick & inexpensive studio at home to shoot my kids. I have no experience what so ever with these things but it was very easy to set up and use. You get one white and one silver reflective umbrella (with tripods and strobes) which is awesome and you get a connector that goes on top of the camera and has a 3.5mm plug in (like the headsets) that does not seem to fit anywhere… ??? (I do not need it – so no harm done).

    I have tried the flash set for a week and the results are really cool! I have tried triggering the flashes with the PC cable or though another flash and they work perfectly.

    Because this set is so inexpensive you have to watch out for the following:

    – you cannot adjust the power of the flash units. What I do is switch the camera to manual and just change the aperture/speed to control the amount of light

    – The umbrellas are a bit small but they work perfect for me (there is one white and one with reflector)

    – The flashes do not have batteries so you have to find a plug near by

    – It says in the instructions that the refresh time is 7 seconds between shots (so you have to wait a while between shots) for me this is not a problem as I like to check the camera screen to see how it turned out.

    For less than $100 this is perfect for my needs.

    Just go my stuff yesterday, good packaging all in one piece and working good.

    On cowboy studio – had to wait a week because they didn’t had all stuff in stack. They created a UPS label charged my card but didn’t informed me about the delay. I call them 3 times, every time they give me a different shipping date. Shame on you guys. 3 stars here

    Lights: simple lights with no output adjustment and no modeling light but they work very well. 2 long synk wires with hot shoe adapter and long enough power cords. Quality is good but I would be careful with screwing the housing to the stand it might crack if over tighten. Synk up camera with lights by wire or trigger them by other by flash – no issues here.

    2 umbrellas – one white and other one reflective with black top. Shooting with umbrella is so much better that using diffuser on flash gun. In the future probably will use bigger once.

    Stands: Nice – 8Ft tall, nice aluminum frame with black anodizing. Little light so if you thinking about outside shooting get a couple bean bags to make them more stable. Stands are very easy to adjust.

    Bag – If you take the bulbs of the housings you are able to fit all in that bag, tight fit but works.

    For 95$ it’s a great deal, even if the light will not last a long time I can always re use the umbrellas and stands. I am just a casual photographer, and want to take a decent macro shots and photos of my kids around holidays. Overall – 4.5 star

    I waited with great anticipation for this Studio Kit. I was really shocked when the box arrived and it was so small. But, Good things come in small packages. Everything actually fits in the carry case.

    The stands: a Little light, but a couple of 10.00 small sand pads will do the trick if you are outside and find yourself in the wind.

    The lights: are cool, and yes I even tried tricking them with the lights as the first reviewer did, and sure enough it doesn’t work.

    Umbrella’s: Not the best not the worse, as they are included in a bundle kit they do what I want them to do now. Eventually I’ll move up to 40′ ones.

    Paired with my ’46’ Softbox mounted this kit has already improved the dynamics of my photos in our very dark and shadowy living room. Just amazing the change in control of light and balance on the first night. (To be tested with my new Backdrop Stand and Backdrops from Ebay. 119.00 for the entire Support System and 3 (Grn/Blk/White) backdrops.

    Overall I think the kit is good. Everybody I know said go with Strobist kit, but I wanted to try Cowboy Studio based on feedback and recommendations from here and other review sites. Honestly, for the price you can’t beat it. If you are looking for more expensive equipment then there’s good reason because you are working up to a PRO. I am not and want to save in the long run by not paying money on Blotchy, faded, out-of-focus “Picture People” photos of my kids.
