    The uLite 3 Light Video Lighting Kit by Westcott is a great tool for the beginning professional photographer interested in creating a properly lit portrait.... I've done real estate headshots in the past without a light kit and once I started using this product, my photos were instantly more professional in appearance. The only minor complaint I have is that the lights do get very hot, very quickly, but that is to be expected. There was a flyer attached to the product offering their fluorescent lamp adapter, which is marketed as a "cool" alternative to the lamps provided in the kit. Overall, I am very satisfied and would definately recommend this product...

    Great beginners light kit. Light weight and easy to set up and take down, this kit is a great beginning for our corporate video production.

    Mostly will be used for interview style lighting for our in-house video production.

    This is not a heavy duty kit and would not stand up to continual or rough use. But it's perfect for our occasional shoots.

        We use for video lighting. Good softboxes...stands are ok. Get what you pay for. I am happy with it. We shoot corporate video tutorials and use about 5 or 6 of these style softboxes to light our subjects.

                          It was relatively easy to set up.
                          I really enjoyed using it from the start.
                          A wonderful way to begin studio photography.

                              Just got this light kit. It is basic but in a good way. Quality is acceptable, lighting is good, setup and tear down are quick. It's a good all-around basic lighting kit. Some people mentioned having to tape the softbox vents open. Maybe I'm not setting it up correctly, but I simply rotated the softboxes on the fixtures so that the vents (flaps) are on the bottom, that way when you open it gravity keeps it open; it works fine with no problems whatsoever. The only thing this otherwise complete kit is missing is a carrying bag.

                                This is a very easy to use kit that includes all you need to star shooting pictures like a pro. I like the new soft boxes that have a little window in the back that can be opened to let the hot air out and vent thins for extended use. For the price you can't beat this deal. At fist there was some chemical odor coming from the soft boxes but it quickly went away after a few hours of use. I would have being nice to have a bag to store everything together but not absolutely necessary and again what do you expect at this price. I am very satisfied with this kit; it does everything I need to do to get good pictures in my home base studio.

                                    Great beginners light kit. Light weight and easy to set up and take down, this kit is a great beginning for our corporate video production.

                                    Mostly will be used for interview style lighting for our in-house video production.

                                    This is not a heavy duty kit and would not stand up to continual or rough use. But it's perfect for our occasional shoots.

                                    I found this lighting kit to be just right for me. I'm just getting started with photography as a hobby so I didn't want to buy something that was expensive yet. The quality seems very good and the lights were easy to put together.

                                      Great lighting kit for video production as this is what I'm using it for. Found so far when lighting during sit down interviews, the amount of light in the rooms is wonderful. No shadows with the 3 light system and it's pretty lightweight for hauling around from location to location. Bought a Pelican 1600 hard case as well and it fits everything but the two larger light stands for protection. Overall, a good kit and you can't beat the price B&H sells it for!

                                      Vastly exceeded expectations. The price and value ratio is excellent. Reviews from others were very helpful in steering us to this product and we were especially grateful for the advice to duct tape the vent flap to make sure the lights breathe. This is a wonderful value and allowed us to immediately upgrade our photographic content on our Facebook page and website. We would recommend this setup for any small business trying to show their products or offerings. We shot using these lights against a black fleece backdrop. Killer photos without the need to do a bunch of high end editing on PhotoShop.

                                      This lighting kit exceeded my expectations. Setup was a breeze. From opening the UPS box, I had it up and ready to roll in less than 10 minutes. It works well for photo/video lighting.

                                      My only problem with it is the bulbs that came with it. They're very orange and I had to do more work in post than I like to. They're fine for what they are, but I prefer 5500k high-cri CFL bulbs for my shoots. Spend a few bucks on some new bulbs and you're good to go!
