Forgive me for disagreeing with you here but I think this is a silly line of questioning. I know they're stock questions to ask of people on a budget who are looking at lighting options, but in reality there are few still photographic applications (aside from small-scale product photography and some still life) for which continuous lighting is preferable to strobe, and in those situations the output and color consistency requirements tend to drive up the costs of continuous lights anyway.
i was looking at this site, for info on kits, i'm thinking to get a hot shoe flash that i can use on and off camera , off to use it with a stand and an umbrella,
(i will shoot people) hehe, most of the time some products that i could sale on websites like ebay or such.
I like to shoot landscapes or stuff like that just for fun , i like to go with my camera to see if i can get a nice picture...
But if i'm going to make money with the camera, i'll start with people portraits , so that's the light i'm looking right now. And about budget don't actually have it right now but i guess around $400 - $500?
