        Comments about Autocue/QTV 3 Head Softbox Lighting Kit:

        This kit is a great for amateur photographers/filmmakers.
        Everything fits into the bag that comes with it and it is easy to set up the whole kit.
        Bought the kit because of the lights themselves are self cooled so they don't heat up as much in interior situations.
        The stands are a nice aluminum and extend to about 6 feet high so they have a good coverage, depending on how you place them.

        Comments about Autocue/QTV 3 Head Softbox Lighting Kit:

        I'm using these soft boxes as a budget/travel solution for training videos and some product video work.

        Pros: They are quiet. They are affordable. I like the soft box setup. The light quality is nice and doesn't compete with any natural light. For the price the build quality of the heads is actually all right.

        Neutrals: The stands are light/cheap so tipping is possible. Watch your white balance I had two cameras go "blue" on me in AWB testing. The way I read the review I thought there was one more "step" of brightness control. To be clear - there is Off, 2 Bulbs, 4 Bulbs They don't put out as much light as I thought. Next time I might shoot without the full diffuser since the florescent light is already soft when I need more brightness.

        Cons: Screwing and unscrewing 12 light bulbs gets really old. The bag is cheap – careful with the zippers.

        Comments about Autocue/QTV 3 Head Softbox Lighting Kit:

        I use these lights for video production for my youtube channel and they work great for lighting up the whole room.
        What I really like about these lights is that they aren't super heavy duty and fold up when im not using them to save space. They go from being tall to super compact with a few easy steps. The colour of the bulbs provided are incredible.

        Something I didn't like was that because there are 4 bulb sockets in the lights the some of the bulbs get close to touching well in the soft box. Im not sure if i should be concern about that or not its just a little odd. A few lights seem to do it and the others don't.

        Over all though these lights are great for both video and photo production and i give them a solid 9 out of 10. I say 9 just because of the bulbs touching. Which might not even be a problem?
