      That would have been an ok retail price a few years ago. Today, you can get a good Lowel kit cheaper than that and you can get a niiiice new wireless LED kit without breaking the bank. It’s worth surfin BandH before buying.

      That’s an awful lot of light for video. What are you trying to illuminate? I use three 500-Watt quartz instruments in my studio and that is often too much.

      I agree with Steve 4k worth of lights is quite a lot. If you’re doing a live broadcast setup or lighting a medium, large studio or outdoor set that’d be a good number. Not to mention quartz lights get hot as halogens and have specifically short lifespans. Grinner’s also correct, for $1k you can get some nice Lowell kits with 3 or 4 lights, scrims, filter mounts, umbrellas and more included.
