I've just bought elemental 250ws and 400 ws, for portraits they are perfect and for anything else for that matter.

I got the 2 head EXD 200 kit just before Christmas and have been very pleased with it.

Comparing it to a Bowens pro kit we use at our Studio Group I would say that it is very well built, seems robust and is a doddle to set up and use and seems to be very good value for money.

Not found any problems with it yet (except a rather limited range of "add-ons compared to some of the other mainstream brands - Rick, do you know whether the EDX fitting is compatible with any of the other "standards"?)

I don`t think it is Brian, EDX is that the budget lights.

If you think your going to be needing add-ons its best to get a set that use the standard S fitting, as used by Bowen`s, Interfit(most) and so on.

i have never had the need to use other modifiers, exept barndoors, and made my own adaptors to fit them..... i made the barndoors too though so i cheated. Wink
