This is an Interfit Stellar Tungsten Two-Light Twin Softbox Kit. It includes two 24x24" softboxes with adapter rings, two 500W bulbs, two 8' (2.4 m) air-cushioned light stands and a padded kit case with interior dividers.

Stellar Tungsten units have tough aluminum bodies built for long life and reliable service. The 500W bulb is color balanced to 3200°K enabling it to be used with other Interfit products such as SXT3200 or halogen lighting.

The Stellar Tungsten units feature "S"-type bayonet fittings enabling the use of Stellar light modification accessories such as softboxes, or a beauty dish for portraits and fashion images. The use of honeycomb grids, color gels and snoots is not recommended as these will shorten the life of the lamps. Interfit recommends the use of 400 ISO when using continuous lighting.

    These are my first set of lights.

    The Interfit labels on the sides of the lamp (up top) were peeling off when I opened the package. This is because the part where the sticker goes is curved, and the actual sticker is not....so there is no conceivable way it would ever stay on without falling off....there are four labels total. It would have looked nice cosmetically, but now they're just sitting on the dresser.

    Assembly was fairly easy except the actual white diffuser fabric is nearly impossible to get taut on the softbox itself. In the picture it looks perfect but for some reason mine looks loose, and messy. Just looks too big...i don't know what I could have done differently.

    When I first plugged in the lights they both started to smoke. I got nervous at first...but after letting them heat up and cool down a few times they didn't smoke anymore. I think this may have had to do with the newness of them.

    They could be built a little better....but I don't regret buying them. They will do nicely until I get something better down the line.

    I use them to setup short videos for corporate.
    Very good value for the money.
    Once you get them all together they work fine.
    What's not so great is the struggle involved with getting those rods in place. The only instructions I could find was a PDF on the website and that was non-specific (no 'figures'). I did find some useful assembly video on You-Tube, but not model specific.
    (when putting these together be careful of the hook Velcro on the edges during assembly. If it gets caught on your clothing it will pull the fabric. They ruined my shirt).
    After I used them for the first time, I left them assembled. I can't imagine taking them apart and putting them together like on the road, each time.
    The kit bag was also hard to figure out (again, no instructions). Not sure how to get all the parts in the one bag.
    Other than that, I am happy with this softbox kit. If you don't want the hassle and can afford the extra cost, get a Lowel Softbox. They set up in seconds.

    Excellent value lights

    Comments about Interfit Stellar Tungsten Two-Light Twin Softbox Kit:

    Great beginner soft box kit. Comes with case and stands so its a great value as well. Lights are admittedly a bit of a pain to put together, but they're well worth it.

      Comments about Interfit Stellar Tungsten Two-Light Twin Softbox Kit:

      First of all they look really good and professional. Stands could be a little better but for the money I'm not complaining. Soft boxes were a PAIN to set up. I really thought I will rip one of them. But they are pretty durable so no issues there. They are hot but it's fine I knew that before I got them. If you are on the budget I don't think you can get better lighting system. I will attache photo of the very first portrait I did with these lights using just one of the heads

            Multiple problems with 2 different deliveries of this item. The first delivery had a bent frame and was missing a lightbulb. The 2nd delivery the on/off switch was popped out of the unit. These were very challenging to put together - took 2 people. We're going to try to find something else. B&H was very prompt in processing our return and getting us the replacement. Very easy to work with, the product just wasn't right for us.

            I use these lights for videos. They are incredibly silent and do not interfere with audio at all.

            The lights are incredibly bright, but heat up very quickly.

            The only downside is the difficult setup required. These lights are not easily constructed. The frames for the boxes basically require two people.

              Love how the lights look in video. It took a few minute to figure out how to put it all together but now it's really easy. The storage bag is a little awkward. It's difficult to fit everything in it but on the upside the padding is really good.

              Comments about Interfit Stellar Tungsten Two-Light Twin Softbox Kit:

              I think the lights are nice but neither me nor any of my friends have been able to assemble the softboxes whatsoever. The closest I can get is having the sticks about 3 inches too long to fit inside the box and if I bent it any further it would surely break. I just cannot fathom how it is supposed to assemble correctly. Looking at other guides online has not helped.

              I bought this kit to mainly light video interviews and green screen segments. However, as my creativity flowed, I was able to use these two lights in almost every shot I did. They are Powerful, fairly stable, and easy to set up and use. I definitely recommend this kit.

              I have been using them lately to light a short film that I am producing and they have boosted the quality tremendously. They are just the right brightness for digital video. I had a shot where the subject would be sitting with their back to the window. They balanced it perfectly so that neither the subject nor the window were over-exposed.

              They are bright, easier to set up (compared to other softbox lights), durable, and the case that comes with it is very handy.

              Bad things, ummmm, I guess the only down side was that they don't have a knob to turn down the brightness but that is fixed just by moving the lights farther or closer. Wouldn't buy if you predict using them in tight spaces. They are too bright for that.

                  When you want a nice amount of light without anything dramatic,this kit provides all that you need. The build quality is good, I'd be hesitant to travel with this all that often as the case it comes in is less than professional, but the lights cast even temperature light and for the price it serves a purpose.

                      I use the lighting gear in a h.s. production class. It's fairly easy to set up. The light works well in a small production.

                      Being used for small and large product photography so to get softbox kit included for this price is tremendous value. Very easy to set up. Quality is sufficient for it use.

                        I use this for video interviews. Nice soft wash of light. A little top heavy when stands are extended- need to put sand bags down. I use some old ankle weights!

                          Now, I haven't had a lot of experience with professional lighting kits, but for the $$ this seems to be a pretty decent set. Definitely the best that I have owned.
                          I am a student so finding a kit together without having to search for parts was really nice!
                          I didn't personally assemble this, and have not assembled any prior, but I assisted my husband in assembly. Though the assembly was relatively self explanatory I do think it wise for the unexperience (as we were) to include an instructions manual. For example the metal poles that frame the light needed to be bent in order to fit. When purchasing something expensive like this without a manual telling you do to so can be a bit nerve racking.
                          Other than that my over all experience thus far has been pretty pleasant.

                          perfect for lighting a subject from multiple angles
                          quick & easy set-up and teardown
                          the initial set up of the softboxes was a little time consuming but once I figured it out the second one went quicker.

                          This product was purchase mainly for product photography. The setup was simple, although there were no instructions on how to assemble the bag, but it was still pretty easy to figure out. The lights work great, but do get hot; this doesn't affect me much because I use them in a large space and on inanimate objects that don't complain about the temps. There is also room in the bag for a couple extension cords and a backup set of bulbs.

                          An overall a great value for someone looking for a simple and easy to use light source. And one of the few sets in its price range that comes with the bag which was a huge selling point for me as I need to pack and store these lights after each use.
