    Would like to buy myself a studio kit (or a single unit, stand, softbox) which is pretty portable. Got a couple of friends weddings to shoot this year and would like some back up lighting just in case the weather is bad!
    Budget around 500.......any advise would be much appreciated.

    I brought a Jacobs 2 head 160 studio kit at christmas when they where on offer for 150. When I got home I typed in the make of the heads and the same kit under a different name at the studio lighting shops and websites was 300. I am more then happy with it.

    Another vote for Elinchrom D-Lites ... I have a set of the original Mk I's which have been very heavily used over the last several years and apart from the very occasional overheat when we pushed them too hard in a hot room they are still working perfectly ... I also have a set of the newer D-Lite IT's with the built in fan and they have never gone wrong.

    Forget the cheap Chinese import sets you see on the likes of Amazon the Elinchrom D-lites are the best for that budget.

    I have both, and the D-lites deliver every time.

    Just pick up a second strobe, and a stand and brolly or two.

    You don`t really want to be lumping around a studio kit at a wedding.

    I agree. Studio light is not very useful at weddings. I just shot one with off camera flash guns.

    Two second hand Canon 580 ex and some stands, softbox/brollies. Fully portable and are made to be carried around.
