In general, continuous lighting for photography refers to any type of lighting that is constantly on while you are taking pictures. This could be natural light coming in through a window, or it could be artificial light from a lamp or light bulb.
Continuous lighting is often used in studios because it allows the photographer to see how the light is falling on the subject and make adjustments as needed.

the product may not be as rugged as pro-grade equipment, but you can’t beat the price. Light stands functioned well and were easy to pack and carry. This would be a great kit for a photo student or someone starting out.
As a pro, I needed some quick equipment for location work in Maine during my workshops and the product worked out just fine.

I needed inexpensive lights, and these fit the bill. The smaller lightbulb broke after one week. The bulbs screw on crooked, and so they don’t get good contact with the stand. you have to fiddle with them a bit to get them in correctly.
The light stands are decent. very lightweight though so just walking by and brushing up against the umbrellas can make it tip over. I probably would not recommend unless you are on a very tight budget.

My son wanted this for his YouTube videos that he makes. He loved the product. Just what he was looking for. I wanted to get him this for Christmas. I thought I waited too late to order and was going to tell him that he was going to get one but it would be after Christmas.
I didn’t have to tell him that. The company got this to me in plenty of time before Christmas. Nice!! Would definitely recommend the product and the company.
Create beautiful pictures with this 600W 5500K Photography Studio Lighting Kit. It is ideal to use for advertising products, photo-art, industrial, scientific and technical photography and photographic reproduction.
The white translucent umbrella is lightweight and easy to set up and produces neutral color temperature. The light stand is constructed from aluminum alloy, giving it exceptional strength for heavy-duty work.
This Neewer light kit includes a carry bag for easy transport and storage. It includes an energy-saving compact fluorescent spiral bulb.
This is a good basic light kit for someone just starting out with studio lighting or for someone who only does infrequent shoots and doesn’t want to invest a great deal of money in lighting. The build quality is satisfactory and in-line with the price point, the light bulbs were nicely packed and all worked out of the box.
It comes with both a carry case for stands and also one for bulbs. The umbrellas are the non-reflective type for defused lighting with two full height stands and one short stand. If you’re a beginner, this with a little reading on light setup on the web will give you a good start to studio lighting.
P. S. You will likely want to invest in some extension cords to allow more freedom of placement.
This umbrella lighting kit is great for amateur photographers like myself wanting to step up their game. The umbrellas provide even lighting and are highly adjustable, very sturdy. The only downside is the short power cords attached to the bulb holders.
I wish the wire came out from the bottom of the stand and was a few feet longer, but I’m assuming these are supposed to be used with extension cords. 5/5.
I gave this set five stars because for what you get, it’s a great value, and worth every penny. No, it’s not professional quality. This isn’t for a pro. It’s for the casual home photographer/videographer/YouTube-er.
The carrying cases do the job of protecting everything, they are of decent enough quality, bulbs are included, and you can upgrade the sockets if you want to take two bulbs if you want more light. The bases are sturdy lightweight metal, and the cords have decent length cords.
You get a full lighting set for under $50 that includes carrying/protective bags. You can’t go wrong with this.

This product was easy and quick to assemble. For the price, it’s great. LED lighting systems are so expensive and would be really nice space savers. This makes for a nice alternative, however. This doesn’t come with sandbags.
In case anyone else thought it did. haha. Also, the white covers that came to cover the boxes weren’t all made the same size. Only 1 of the 3 fit. They sent me a replacement of the entire order and then I need to return the other.
It’d be cheaper to just mail two white covers, but I’m sure that’s hard to orchestrate. They did it quickly and without charging me anything extra. I’ll add pictures to this when they send me working parts.
It was really easy to set up. The lighting on the products is excellent and has tremendously improved the quality of my photos. The quality is great for the price. This is a great selection, especially for beginners, because anyone can work with these.

Its not often I work with videographers, and then not often its a fun experience, but one recently was and I picked up a new-for-me idea of using two of these lights for 1st dance to both assist in lighting the dancing Newlyweds, and their Guests, but also to aid with the common mirrorless problem of low-light focus (something most flashguns don’t help with as they did with DSLRs) So I bought a couple of these wee beauties and was immediately impressed with their small size and build quality.
I first used them on a new venue shoot for both portraits with my S-Bowens’ fit holders and modifiers, and for some food photography too. What immediately impressed too was they are more powerful than I had thought, meaning I ran them at 50% or less power, and that they last for HOURS before needing recharging.
They also remained completely cool and noise-free (noise not being a stills’ issue, but its nice anyway) Yesterday, I again used them for 1st dance, the original idea for their purchase, where they shone (pun intended), but also for some outdoor night-time portraits.
Here again the fact that they are a constant light source made for an easier & faster outdoor night-time shoot than my usual flash set-up as its so much easier to focus and refocus with zooming or moving position than flash is Overall then, and despite using them for only 3 shoots so far, I couldn’t be happier with them – hence the 5* review :).
I bought the SL60 before these and though I had no complaint with them; the ML60Bi is better in every way, Lighter, quieter, bicolor and can run on battery. The thing that really sold me is when using the optional Godox S2 Speedlite Bracket for Bowens I can switch out my AD300 with the ML60 without removing modifiers.
They basically share the same form factor (circumference). The only thing I would have liked to see is them working with the same remotes as the flashes. They have the mini Godox mount built in. I think the Godox mount is great but for now I mostly use the Godox S2 adapters.
This Zoom RGB LED Video Light SZ150R is a RGB continuous light with multiple functions. Freely switch LED bicolor mode, colorful light mode and 37 situational special effects modes. Suitable for almost all shooting occasions e.
g. live, camping, portrait shooting, make up, video, wedding, children photography, etc. It’s portable and easy to be operated.
As an indy film maker, you are always on the hunt for the highest value gear. You want the gear that doesn’t make its name on overpriced gimmicky features. You want gear that does more for less. I started out just wanting the most powerful LED video light I could find without paying a fortune.
It was difficult to find anything between the high end content creator panels and professional studio lights. Then I discovered this little gem trickling out of the factory. I had to wait for a couple months to get it but it was totally worth the wait.
You can read its stats but it is indeed very powerful. By far the brightest light I could find for under a thousand. When you add in the precision control you have over temperature and color, and its zoom function, there is no competition.
The light is more powerful than what you would need as a talking head content creator and you’d be better off getting more than one smaller light. But for an indy film maker working in a larger space I couldn’t find anything that came even close for this pricepoint.
Unless you already have a DMX set up, get the Godox RC-R9 remote for this light. It works really well, whereas the bluetooth phone app you can get is not good.
I am in the process of replacing my old Redhead 800W Tungsten Halogen video lights which have served me well for decades. I selected these Godox SZ200Bi’s as a close replacement, but also noted the ability to operate at the 2800oK colour temperature so that they could be intermixed with the redheads as I transitions.
I also have some Bowens studio flashes and the ability to use the stands, soft box and umbrellas from those was a big factor in my selection. So far I have been extremely impressed with the Godox SZ200Bis; so much so I just acquired my second.
A new addition to Godox tube light family, TL30. Featuring tube shape in light weight, it is portable and easy to use. Small as it is, great potentials to expect. Tons of colors in control for dynamic content creating.
Accessories like various couplers, waterproof bag, grid inspire extensive possibilities for the form, effect and even applicable environment of this light. You will enjoy the infinity that TL30 could be to enrich every shot.
A Liberating Light TL30 weighs about 2 smartphones that you could barely feel it in bag, while tube shape saves the trouble for space taking. As on location or travelling studios, work with such portable light will be a liberating experience you have never had before.
Fit Anywhere With embedded magnet, just a metal surface is where TL30 can be attached. Screw hole at both ends for you to mount it on a stand. More convenience comes with it being freely placed in corner, again wall, or any narrow space for illumination.
Almost fit anywhere, TL30 gets you the flexibility you want for shooting any place. Light without Footprint It is easy to hide TL30 behind subject for a clean background, which highly levels up your efficiency.
For a close-distance shooting, you are free to place lights around with the footage kept undisturbed, less time on edit, more time to create. A Color Library to Rely On Adjust in RGB, CCT, HIS three modes to reach up to 36000+ colors, with advanced G/M adjustment and 13 FX at three tunable levels.
Just take this magic rainbow in your pocket. Reliable Color Rendering With a CRI rating of 97 and a TLCI rating of 99, it delivers vibrant, natural light and reproduces accurate colors. Flexible Power Supply With the charging port built at an end of it, you can use the light attached on while charging it for longtime lighting.
The Godox SL150W II LED Video Light is a daylight-balanced 150W LED monolite-style light source suitable for broadcasting, cinematography, online streaming, and other video applications. Dimming settings range from 0% to full power and can be adjusted by its wireless remote.
I bought this as a key light to use for interviews but this can also be used for anyone getting into filmmaking. The quality of the build is very durable and it has a great power output. I usually find myself staying under 30% with a soft box.
Also if you don’t have time to set up a soft box, there’s an umbrella mount right underneath the light. And the knob used to adjust the angle of the light has locking teeth so you don’t have to worry about modifiers dragging the light down because of the extra weight.
The remote that’s included is a big plus and also the fan on the light is pretty quiet. If your microphones do pick up the audio from the fan, there’s a button to turn it off. This is a great overall light, just note it doesn’t come with a bag if you’re using this to travel and it’s not battery operated either.
Although this equipment is not as strong or as durable as the professional grade/high end lighting and screening gear that’s available, it is perfect for me. This is set of equipment is ideal for someone who’s working in their own home studio, which is an exceptionally low-wear environment.
Although this kit does not complete the full lighting arsenal for me, it includes several of the basic components for building said arsenal; such as a set of 5 different lighting reflectors, on/off switches to operate the lights themselves, and the rack for the backdrop screens is quite serviceable.
Most important, it provides me with a bit more versatility in the basic lighting set up than a more expensive kit might provide. In short, this lighting and backdrop kit may NOT be of the highest quality/grade, but the dollar value in proportion to the actual amount of equipment I’ve paid for is exceptional.
Again, it’s ideal for home studio use, which is a low-wear environment, and if this equipment is properly stored and protected, it could be made to last a VERY long time. I recommend it for beginners, aspiring photographers, and it most certainly could be useful to experienced filmmakers, depending on the application it’s used for, and, of course, the location it’s used in.
Okay so this is not the most expensive or rugged lighting setup. But it is a very good cost effective way to light up a small home based studio without breaking the bank. I found that there was plenty of light for photo shots without pushing the ISO to the limit or setting the aperture wide open.
Could set the camera white balance to Auto and get colors that needed little in processing to come in right. Setting the white balance with a card gave a slight different hue than the Auto but both were in the realm of natural color.
The 6500K bulbs are a bit cool in the Kelvin arena but shooting in RAW with Auto or white carding will produce a good color that can be warmed in processing. I tried a quick setup with a keylight, fill and hairlight and even though I had some distance from my subject to softbox gave a well lit setting even in the dark of my living room it wasn’t perfect but my first outing with the softboxes showed potential.
(See Picture) Now back to the build like I said it isn’t the most rugged and in a commercial high volume studio one would probably want to opt for a much more robust setup. But for a small home studio or just for practicing lighting techniques you can’t beat the cost here.
I used fish tank gravel in my counterweight boom and had excellent balance. I set up lights to shoot video and some still photography and these will let me get professional results at minimum costs.
For the price the quality is pretty good. However, the bulbs are just not bright enough. Especially once I put the umbrellas on. I’ve never used a lighting kit before so I don’t know what the trick is to actually have these work.
I’ve tried brighter bulbs and not using the umbrellas and I still need supplemental light and I was under the assumption these would be the only lights I need. Plus, one of the bulbs I received is defective, it keeps going on and off.
Really this should come with LED bulbs, CFLs are not the best choice for something that is going to be moved around a lot because they are just too fragile. For the price I can’t complain too much but overall I just don’t think these are effective.
I’m keeping it because I do need the lights but this is not necessarily the best solution for me.
The Amaran 200x is a bicolor pointsource LED fixture with stunning brightness, flexible color temperature control and wireless Bluetooth app control. Amaran provides the perfect lineup of fixtures for content creators, portrait photography and video production.
When it comes to lighting, output is like horsepower. Using cuttingedge LED technology, the Amaran 200x uses its 200W COB LED output to create an equivalent to a 750w tungsten light.

In conclusion, continuous lighting is a great option for photography, especially if you are just starting out. It is relatively inexpensive and easy to set up, and it will give you a good feel for how lighting works in photography.
Continuous lighting is also a great option if you need to take photographs in low light conditions, as it will provide a consistent source of light.
