Bang For Your Buck Light Kit

Recommended Posts

lately there has been alot of talk about generators and studio light kits. ive found the most cost effeciant setup. its the coleman powermate 1850 watt generator. this is listed for $545 but can be found for around $400 street price and even less used. its even a common one to rent if desperately needed. its a heavy mother fucker (68lbs!!!) but small and quiet (60hz) the tank is 1gallon that runs about 6hrs. you will deffinately need a car for this generator due to its weight)

(link below, photobucket not working)

random ebay auction just for pics etc

 

and these lights are a 14 lbs kit and come with a case, and run 1250 watts, (2 500s and 1 250) there about 200 bucks on bh and can be found for less im sure. but there great for that budget filmer who needs good lights and has a automobile that they can put in with there new badass genny.

(again, link below, photobucket still not working)

badass lights (scroll down to later replys)

 

i dont have this setup yet but soon will. peace, hope i helped.

 

(admins/mods, i posted this in 'contribute but it said wait till mod sees it yada yada yada, ill just move this one there now, so joel or lawrence, or steve, delete one, thanks)

I bought mine on ebay from an online generator store for about $350 after shipping.

That depends on how much power you are pulling from it, if you are using all 1500 watts (3- 500 watt lights) it only lasts for 1 hour.

 

and yes, i agree that this generator is the best deal, it's pretty quiet too, especially when used in an open area.

Meh, Impact isnt really so well known for quality, and the price is scetching me out a little, itd probablly be ok for lighting up spots though, I just wouldnt count on them for studio or location work...although i could get an two arri 650s... I was having enough problems deciding between computers, I DIDN'T NEED MORE COMPLICATIONS BUYING LIGHTS!!!!

Does anyone have shots using these lights?

No because he just basically picked a lighting kit out of hat. He's never used them, but still recommends people getting the kit. Genious.

instead of spending 200 on lights just get more worklights for like $20-30. Unless you think studio lights are worth it, i like the case idea.

Check out Home Depot for a sweet 40-60 dollar light setup. I am dead serious! Now all I need is a generator or maybe I willl find a cheaper way to get power to these awesome lights.
