With 2 compact 500w broad throw V-lights, stands, gels & umbrella, this compact kit can be used in several ways. The 2 V's alone can be used to raise the ambient level of a small room. Or for 1 person interviews, one V with the umbrella attached can become a soft key/fill while the other can be used either with diffusion gel in the frame for soft fill, or by itself to light up the background. If you're looking for a small starter kit to add things to, consider the GO-85 case option. For local travel, the Soft case option can also save you some money. Supplied with lamps.
