      Can anyone make some recommendations on reasonably priced lighting kits that I can use for photography as well as video. My photos are all product shots. Videos are product demonstrations and short training pieces. I will not be traveling with the equipment and I do not need backdrop gear. I will be experimenting with some green screen video and plan on using paper backdrop.

      I’ve done some research and many reviews of the really cheap sets like on Amazon complain of top heaviness, flimsy stands and poor quality plastic parts that break when you tighten thumb screws.

      Budget is $500 or less

      Thanks

      Edit: Should I be looking for flourescent lighting? I also see halogen kits
