I'd like to get some feedback on this continuous lighting kit I've been eying.

Does this look like a good kit with all the components included?

And if so, can anyone comment on the bulbs included, are they good?
Would you recommend swapping the bulbs for some LEDs of some sort?

Is there enough power to produce good enough lighting for a mannequin and for some flat shots (pants, jackets, shoes etc).

 

PNB is the same seller whose 2-light kit I was looking at (posted earlier) - this one has soft boxes instead of umbrellas, bigger, 1 more light, etc.  Same seller has myriad configurations and if you look too much you get confused and end up not buying anything for fear of buying the wrong setup.  I'm just gonna pull the trigger, decide and buy something - worst case scenario it doesn't work for me and I resell on CL, or add to it and make do.

Ever weird you out when you post something in the thrift brag thread, then go to list it on eBay and can't find a sold comp so you search for it on Google and see your SF post...and now anyone who finds it on eBay can Google it and see that you bought as a thrift item?

Maybe why many folks don't mention the maker, and just post a photo of the label (Spoo &c).  Lesson learned.

Hi there, not sure if this is the appropriate thread to ask again.

But can I get some opinions.

 

Were these a good purchase in terms of price? Thanks

1. Not really the right thread, no.
2. Doesn't matter, you already bought them.

Ok thanks, just wanted to see, because I just found out they were going to sell those same shoes at the Nordstrom anniversary sale.

But, of course at a higher price - better condition new w/ all the original stuff -.

Debating on whether I should keep these or sell & get those instead

Well the seller does have a return policy with restocking fee. Up to you. For factory defects, I think you could have done better. Depends how bad the flaw is, whether it bothers you, and what your cost would be at this point.

for new thats a nice price.

you wont do better.

post #3968 of 17467

I think that's a pretty good deal there. That mark doesn't look so bad. You probably will put worse on them in the first week anyway. IMHO those should have sold for more than you paid.

It's either a paper cut out arrow, or a crusty old foreskin.

First negative feedback a few minutes ago.  Sent someone the wrong item.  Fully refunded their money, sent them the right item with a bag and a label to send the wrong item to the proper recipient.  Refunded the other person too, just in case they didn't actually send the item on to him.  So everyone gets their money back, and the product, and I get this.

 

Negative feedback rating

ship me wrong shirt -then wanted me to clean up his mess

 

 

Shit's frustrating, was hoping to get a hell of a lot more feedback before I got one of these.  Going to fight like hell to get it removed.

I don't think that will get removed.

That's a tough mistake to swallow, sorry to hear about that.
post #3973 of 17467

Yea that sucks mate, you did all you could.

That's unfortunate! Someone here (I thought it may have been you?) was afraid they'd send out the wrong packages, but it can happen, especially when you're going higher volume. In the future, I would have had the person send the item back to me rather than have them send it to the person directly. It would cost more in shipping, but I would also be annoyed if someone wanted me to be responsible for shipping something to someone else.

it absolutely was me.

I was trying to get the right product to the right person as fast as possible, but you are right, I should have had them send it back to me, just as a matter of proper procedure, even though I figured a label was a label, and it's just as easy to send it on, as it would be to send it to me.  I don't know, with me giving everyone the product and their money back, we'll see.
