Softbox to fit 5 CFL head?
  • Im looking to purchase this cowboy studio CFL kit: http://www.cowboystudio.com/product_p/n-2000wboomkit.htm

    ...which includes this 5 CFL head. http://www.cowboystudio.com/product_p/2000w%20head%20only.htm

    Are there any higher quality softboxes that will fit this head that I could upgrade to in the future? They all seem to have built in sockets or proprietary mounts.

  • just my 2 cents, i've had 2 of these kits for over 2 years now and have used them countless times. i traveled all around the country with them and really beat them up, but I haven't had a single one break yet. no, they're not high quality, but i'm amazed how long they've lasted me. took a little bit to break them in so that I could set them up and break them down faster, but it quickly became a piece of cake.

  • @SeekingHeartwood Thanks for the comment, I wasnt sure about them as they look a little wobbly, but decent light stands can be found used pretty easily. Im glad they have worked well for you, hopefully they will last as long for me!
