    I bought this kit because I wasn’t sure how useful umbrellas were in general. I have a Canon 7D with an 580 EX II flash that I could now keep off the camera thanks to the 7D’s wireless transmitter and was interested in experimenting with casual indoor portraits. This kit contains a frame that is very light and hence intended to only be used indoors with reasonable care. I also tried it with my 60″ gold/silver umbrella, and it barely managed to stand still – I ended up leaning the umbrella against a wall just to be sure. The stand is tall. The flash holder is delicate and does not stay firmly in its rotated position. The flash holder is not a hotshoe, but a clamp like plate that moves horizontally on one side to grip the flash shoe edge as you turn the red screw (shown in the product pictures). Despite these shotcomings, this is a fantastic value for the price, particularly if you never tried umbrellas before. The provided umbrella is a soft diffuser reflecter/passthrough and is good only for closeup lighting (3-8′) because it does not reflect or come with a reflector. The kit did not come with instructions, but pointed to a link to download the instructions. I was able to figure it out myself in a couple of minutes without using the link.

    I ordered this kit about a week or two ago and the shipping said it wouldn’t arrive till February 18th. I was a little bummed about how long I’d have to wait, but it ended up coming on February 4th!

    Let me describe my level of photographic experience as to put this in context: I’m an “amateur” photographer, I’ve been shooting for a year and in that year I have poured over hundreds of photography books and thousands of articles. Over this past summer I devoted myself entirely to photography. I have a D300, SB900, 50mm f/1.8, 18-70 f/3.5-5.6, and 55-200.

    And now for the review!
    I have been experimenting with off-camera flash for a while and I’ve read a lot about softbox vs umbrella vs diffusion panels/etc and they each definitely have their own niche. If you are like me and are just getting into the “strobist” frenzy, this kit is PERFECT for you. A stand will run you ~$50, an umbrella mount ~$20, and the umbrella itself is typically ~$20-40. That’s about $100.

    For 1/3 the price you get 4/5 the results.

    The umbrella is pretty small as far as umbrellas typically go, but I can’t really complain; the light is still very very soft. The umbrella mount feels cheap, but anyone who has any respect for their equipment shouldn’t have any difficulty making it last. The stand is pretty light and extends up higher than I’ll ever need.

    Unless there is absolutely NO wind whatsoever, I would not recommend this kit for outdoor use (unless you have an assistant bracing the stand for you). Everything is so light that even a strong breeze would probably tip it over. That being said, you can sprint by this thing indoors without having to worry about it falling over.

    FINAL VERDICT:
    If you aren’t sure if strobist photography is for you, or you simply want a cheap “entry-level” umbrella kit, buy this. If you have a real job and can drop over $100 for a manfrotto stand and a wescott umbrella then do that.

    if you don’t want to spend much money in professional equipment this is excellent one, and by the price is perfect… probably the ubrella is a little small.

    You get exactly what you pay for, a starter set up for your off camera flash.
    Non of the pieces are exactly top quality, but for the price it is a good way to get your feet wet with off camera flash set up.
    Used it today to do some on location shots for a friend and generally served the purpose but the flash mount that came with it broke…I do use a heavier flash (Vivitar 285)…I will be ordering a new flash mount, but the other mounts alone cost 15-20 bucks so 30 bucks is not bad for the kit.
