          Comments about Photogenic StudioMax III Softbox Kit (120V):

          I use this light along with the other lights in my studio ad get great results. The Kelvin temperature is always right on, so that's one less thing I have to worry about.Size is great, the only problem I have it the initial putting it together. Other than that it's a great product!

            Comments about Photogenic StudioMax III Softbox Kit (120V):

            Works very well. Optical slave is a bust but I use pocketwizards with it and have no problems. Softbox is a pain to assemble. My stand doesn't exactly fit in the box and can feel a bit precarious holding the light at times (I primarily shoot weddings so I'm on the go constantly). Overall, great product for the price. I'd consider buying another.

            Comments about Photogenic StudioMax III Softbox Kit (120V):

            I use this as a main light for my home studio. The light produced by the strobe and lightbox works for my smaller studio setup. The light stand is well built. It does heat up since there is no cooling fan. I wouldn't consider it "hot" but I use it at the most for 2 hours straight. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars because I had an issue out of the box with the speed ring fitting. I notified B&H, they promptly responded by notifying Photogenic, and a Photogenic helpful rep called me to troubleshoot me though the problem. I had to wear out some of the excess plastic on the strobe where it meets the speed ring to get it to fit. Overall I'm happy with this strobe.

            Solid Softbox Kit, Optical Sensor iffy

                  Good flash, softbox and tripod. Only difficulty I've encountered is that the optical sensor doesn't consistently work -- you realy need to either use a cord or radio-controlled pocket wizard.
