Hi all, I'm new to this site (just registered today) and I would love some input. I'm on an extremely short budget (like most!) and just simply need pointed in the right direction. I have been looking at Alien Bees and they seem to be quite popular among the beginners and some pro's. Still, the price of buying a new set up from them is a bit out of budget for me. I have been looking into this set up just to get started, http://cowboystudio.com/product/c07/p0702-19.php . If I were to purchase this, I would upgrade to their 300W strobe and the price would come to $168.45, which includes... One (1) 7ft Light Stand One (1) High Quality MonoLight One (1) 16"x 24" Softbox with Spring Ring (20" X 28" for 160W/180W strobe, 24" X 36" for 300W strobe) One (1) 13 Foot Sync Cord One (1) 10 Foot Power Cords What would this set up be compared to other brand wise? It seems like a steal to me. I appreciate any feed back! -BRYAN.
