Linda, I agree with Steve



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.
