    Hello. Im looking for an umbrella kit to use for an sb-800 /sb-900. This would be my first attempt at this, and unfortunately I do not know any one that has one that I can test out, to figure which I like best.

    I found these. I don't know if the are any good but I'm assuming the Lastonite is better because of the price ( $380 for 2 ). The Inerfit is only $170 for 2 which would be great because I'm on a budget but I would rather buy something more expensive if the cheaper counterpart will only give me headaches.

    Any recommendations are welcome and thank you in advance.

    Here's mine. I bought it all individually.

    Umbrella

    Adapter

    Lightstand

    The lightstand is actually 7.5' not 6.5' and with the adapter it is bigger than that but if you can afford it go for a 10' stand. It just gives you more options. GL
