Hey, I have two, the B800s. They're great as far as I'm concerned but they are those bright colors that kinda make them look cheap. You might want to look into the White Lightnings by the same company for a more professional looking, slightly sturdier construction lights...also, the softboxes and such are a little on the crap side. They work, but they're a pain in the ass to work with.

If you've only got the budget for Bees, they're grea, but if you can up a notch, it would be a good choice to do so.

First off...I love my Bees...thinking about naming my first born after them. Well, mebby not...the wife wouldn't like that too much! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I've gone through the old posts here in the Tech Forum that have answers to your question. This has been asked many, many times before you. Read the opinions and make an informed decision on what's best for you!

Here ya' go:

Well, that's it I guess...the Tech Forum only goes back to the start of July, and I know the question had been asked several times prior to that as well.

Good Luck!

Unfortunately(?) these are right in my budget range, I will probably go with the Black boxes, yeah those colors might seem too M-TV-ish...
