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.

20 or 30 old stuff for half the price!!

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?

B&H has that kit for 485$ brand 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?
