  1. Update: I ordered a Pixel Fodavil C220 spotlight: https://www.amazon.com/Photography-Continuous-Lighting-Spotlight-Recording/dp/B07ZJC75CZ/ After reading the replies in this thread, I want to be careful not to get a softbox that can't handle the heat of this light. Any budget-friendly recommendations within the 30" to 35" range?
  2. I am considering the $199 Wellmaking HL-800C light: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YY1HH5X However, the one complaint that so many people have (i.e. catch) is that the ball mount can not support the weight of most good softboxes. If you bought this light, what replacement mount would you buy so that it can support the weight of a large softbox. If you have any links to mount options, that will definitely help. Also, what else do I need to get this thing fully functional? What stand would you buy for it? What battery would you buy? What budget-friendly softbox in the 30" to 35" range
  3. Thanks for all of the info. I'll be starting a new thread that describes the lights (in detail) that I'm considering and see what softbox you think makes sense.
  4. Short Version: Does it matter if I have stabilization on a camera for shooting (corporate) video testimonials? Is it ok if I leave the camera running on a tripod while I talk to me subject and not operate/adjust the camera after it starts recording. If the answer is "yes," then is stabilization therefore unnecessary? Long Version: I own a Sony Alpha a6400 that has no in-body image stabilization. I'm planning to either buy a Sigma 56mm f/1.4 (no optical stabilization) or a Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS (SteadyShot optical stabilization) for shooting testimonials. I almost bought the Sigma because
  5. I'm planning to shoot video testimonials and want to get a softbox for them. I'm new to softboxes and found this 32" unit for only $28: https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-centimeters-Octagonal-Speedlight-Photography/dp/B00PIM3I6I/ I saw Wescott softboxes this size in the $250-350 range. I don't get it. Is there something really awful about it that it's going for 1/10 the price? For the purpose of shooting video testimonials (indoors), is there any reason to avoid it?
  6. Marketing Concept Behind Establishing Shot: The establishing shot would be used for an entertainer's demo reel. The rental room of a public library is generally very inexpensive to rent out. Clients who rent a library room for an event will rarely (if ever) spend over $1,000 to hire entertainment. On the other hand, events that occur in a large ballroom in a 4-Star hotel require a higher price to rent. Clients who spend that money to rent an expensive hotel ballroom tend to have a considerably higher budget for entertainment (assuming they decide to allocate a budget). To establish an e
