Well like many things in this industry, you get what you pay for. But the people who wrote reviews seem please with them, and you said you’ll be using them primarily for interviews, which isn’t very demanding. One person suggested to have a sandbag for the light that has the boom, which makes sense. I personally haven’t used them yet, but I do plan on getting them soon.
Even if they do break, if your work gets you a good amount of money, and these lights last you for as long as a few projects, $200 wouldn’t be that much to lose out on. You may be able to use them long enough to save up for a real like kit, perhaps on made by Arri.
