The uLite uLite with 26" Octabox Kit from Westcott is a good choice for a basic lighting setup for ecommerce, products and portraiture. The kit includes a 26" diameter Octabox and a uLite constant light fixture.

The uLite fixture is a basic ceramic Edison socket with a swivel mount with a Baby (5/8") receiver for a light stand, a 500W rating and a 120VAC power cord with in-line switch. Designed specifically for the uLite, the Octabox features a built-in mount and a signature wrap-around quality of light, especially when used close to your subject. The Octa's unique shape also renders natural catchlights in the eyes of your subject that mimic the sun in outdoor venues.

        The Light from this box is very soft and beautiful. Although this box is made for constant lighting I have adapted this box to also use a speed light with it by using a bungee cord to hold the flash in place. Now I have a hybrid box.

          Low Cost Entry Into Continuous Lighting

              I must admit I bought this because B&H had a great sale price on it. Also I wanted to try continuous lights but on a low budget since it's new to me. B&H should feature the Westcott accessory, the Photo Basics 4 Socket Adapter. I bought mine at [$]. This gives you 4 lights instead of 1. You can buy CFLs or you can go the way of the future, LED lights. Home Depot has the CREE 60 watt LED lights with a CRI of 93. They are 2700K but you can mix these with other incandescent lights. Unfortunately these and 40 watt bulbs are the only offerings at 93 CRI. The daylight bulbs are 80 CRI. So, you can use this kit as your main light with other incandescents as fill. Nice.
