Excellent Starter lights and Good On Location Strobes

By Dave

from Wisconsin

Comments about SP Studio Systems Excalibur 3200 2-Light Lighting Kit with Case:

I went to B&H to buy my first lighting kit. I was all set to buy a set of continuous lights as I had a $500 budget. The The lights work great, I have since upgraded to White Lightening strobes for my studio work, but use these on occasion when going on location or when a second studio setup is needed. Dont worry about the recycle times and the plastic components, if your new at the whole learning lighting phase in your photography the recycle time is fast enough. My motto has always been, Buy for today, not for the future! Once you buy these lights and learn to light you will be able to hone your skills and see what types of lights you want in the future.DONT FORGET YOUR LIGHTMETER!!!

Expertise: Semi Pro

Problems Encountered: The only prob i have encountered is there are not many speed rings avail for other softbox manufacturers, ie Larson, Chimera, etc.... but then again...by the time you figure out what your needs are for the future softboxes, youll be upgrading your lighting anyway!

Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Alien Bees, White Lightening

Items I Recommend: Sekonic L358 Light Meter, Pocket Wizard Transceivers

Cheap. Good, but cheap, and it shows in some places.

Comments about SP Studio Systems Excalibur 3200 2-Light Lighting Kit with Case:

They work as advertised - cheap, relatively powerfulstrobes. I've taken some pretty decent pictures with it. Asfar as the quality of the light is concerned, these guysperform well. The audible ready alert is an excellent feature.The flash duration is relatively long - supposedly 1/300secat max power. Guess I get what I paid for. I do wish I hadspent extra $ on Alien Bees for their shorter flash duration.

Problems Encountered: The crank to adjust the tilt for one of the lights brokewithin a few weeks. The bag is cheap - two of the plasticrings attaching the straps to the bag cracked under thestrain of the weight inside (with nothing more inside thanthe kit itself plus a pair of extension cords). The standsare relatively weak - one monolight with the SP-Systems 37Octagonal Softbox is enough to bend the stand alarmingly.

Great kit great lights would be nice if it came with a manualthough. some of the plastic parts are not the toughest out there.its is strong an durable but you should use kid gloves whenhandling it.

Problems Encountered: the screw that holds the reflective scoop thing on the frontstriped out but its not much of a problem really that partis not needed at all.
