      Originally $700, asking $300 with extra bulb’s.

      Deal or no deal?

      Sorry for multiple posts, having problems with explorer and this forum…switched to google chrome and hopefully everything posts ok now.

      That’s what I thought on the age of the things…but here they are selling the same stuff for the same rough price almost $700.

      Is there something comparable, that I would be able to buy for around $300 or little more new?

      Thank you fx1….

      The actual kit if its the hard case as I understand and the price would be $581.75 on B&H. I don’t know if the soft case to hard is worth almost $100. I think I am going to offer $200 instead off of your mention of no deal. I know they are offering plenty of extra lamps. So maybe that is where he feels he could be making up the difference in the $300 price. It’s a difficult one here cause the guy I am working with is the one kind of brokering the deal.

      I am big on value…not undervaluing but certainly not overvaluing anything.

      Anyone else know a resource for used equipment? Need to see what else out there I can get for video….again I need continuous lighting correct?
