Hey, anyone has some experience with this?
Nope, but you can walk into Blacks/Wolf/Ritz and get a 45" white, convertible umbrella (black back comes off and you can use it as a shoot through) for $32.99.
If needed. Holder/adapter/clamp is $19.99 which mounts to light stand, tripod or just about anything. (not a cymbal stand)
Did you read the reviews of it?
Many people received broken merchandise and had issues. For that price, I would definately go to a KNOWN GOOD vendor and pay a few dollars more to get better quality products.
In lighting, it is important to invest in the very best that you can becuase 90% of the time, your lighting setup outlives several cameras.
I prefer flash lighting over fulltime on lighting for better quality results. My setup has both, but after a few times playing with it, the constant on lighting was turned off and I stick to the strobes only.
You can likely get MUCH better results and more portability if you simply get yourself a couple of cheap Sunpack or Vivitar flashes and attach them to a couple of umbrellas. On top of being better quality, you can also take them and use them in places that you do not need a power outlet.
Also, this kit seems so small and underpowered, that I doubt you can get good results in a size that would accomodate more than 1-2 people max.
