I ordered the Flora Easy Softbox kit by Linco as a medium budget, indoor, artificial lighting solution. These are the results after turning it on for the first time.

I was surprised by the amount of light this system put out even with just a single 85w fluorescent CFL switched on. The kit comes with 6, 85w, daylight balanced CFL's. With the Flora fully loaded, you can switch on half the bank (3 bulbs) or 6 bulbs for a total equal to 2040w incandescent light.

As you see in this video, I only needed half the lighting bank (3 bulbs) to achieve more than the light I required.

The fact that you are seeing this video means I'll be keeping the light. It's powerful and well constructed even for having a few plastic parts. Time will tell if they hold up but the light itself is sturdy and the softbox is well constructed opening with the simple pull of a string.

Full review coming soon.
