Looking to some better portraits and to get good light for product shooting I wanted to get my hands on a softbox...
So off to amazon.co.jp I go... and low and behold, a fairly large sized softbox at -29% list price. ʕु•̫͡•ʔु! (Yes they certainly come in bigger sizes, but not at this price and with stand.)
Gorgeoust 80x60cm softbox with stand for 4900¥ (~55$) + 4900¥ for 4 lightbulbs.
A few days the nice deliveryman hands over my package to me, it the sheer size of the light bulbs dawns on me... each bulb is a 105W @7000 lumens and 5500K (each is a 500W equivalent) so times 4... (=_=;) I might not need this much, but luckily each bulb can be turned on individually using the back panel that also states which of the bulbs each switch controls. *thumbs up*
I look forward to seeing if it will "fit the bill" for me in the future (⌒_⌒)/
