    Comments about SP Studio Systems Excalibur 2-Monolight Lighting Kit:

    I hear of a lot of people buying direct-to-photographer lighting systems that are extremely popular. I try my best to convince new-to-lighting photographers to consider the SP Excalibur system. I have used them for probably 10 years or more and never had a failure, except when a stylist knocked one over from about 20' up.

    I also use Broncolor, which are superb, but so expensive that I can really only justify renting them when doing location shots. In my studio, it's SP all the way.

    I started out with two Excalibur 3200's. I found they were so powerful that I needed a 1600 as well. I've since added 2 1600's and 2 6400's. If I were to buy a two-light kit, however, it would be this one: the 1600 and 3200.

    I have never had bulb or fuse failures, or any other electronic problem. The range of features on the Excaliburs is awesome. From adjustable modeling light output (which I find a little less useful), to adjustable flash output, built in slave, RCA connector, flash dump, fast recycling, etc. These are just the best, easiest to use lights. I noticed they added auto-dump to my newer models when turning off the unit or re-adjusting the light. A nice feature. Oh, the check boxes remind me that the color output of these units is spot on and very pleasing, at every output level (something I have not found with the WL, AB, and other units at this price level).

    These are probably the best lights for portraits (on or off location), product photography, and even fashion and architectural work.
