    Looks like junk to me. A good rule of thumb is: If it bills itself as professional gear using the words "pro", "professional" or similar, it almost certainly isn't!

    That looks to be overpriced by about $400 to me.

    They leave out a lot of information.

    Continuous lights don't work very well for photographing people. I saw no specifications.

    green screen backgrounds aren't too terribly difficult. there is a plugin for photoshop that makes selecting and replacing the green screen pretty easy.
    all you really have to do is get the actual portrait shot right.
    we don't really get much call for the green screen, but every so often someone wants some crazy background. we use a pair of sb700's on stands with umbrellas though, not continuous lights.

    Green screens are ok for video but suck for still photography. You have to light your background evenly and there will still be a green cast in hair and edges of skin that have to be corrected. If you want to swap backgrounds I suggest a white or gray background. Using photoshop to replace the background is really easy.

    well, that IS why i mentioned you have to get the shot right... animals can be the hardest. or long wavy hair. sometimes the program has a hard time separating the green from light fur. you also have to be more aware of clothing colors.
