    It doesn't look all too bad. The tripod might not be very good if you have a heavy lens, and you might need a fill light for the top if the included bulbs are weak, but you could probably do worse for $30.

    That one seems to be the more common cheap ones online. All you really want from that is the tent/box, at least my idea. I haven't gotten one yet, I want to. The light bulbs might be crap when you get that one, you'll have to let us know how they are.

    I have a set that is similar to that. That's a nicer tripod than the one i got. The lights are crap honestly. The tent is decent though.
    The bulbs are replaceable, but they're pretty expensive. You can get 2 for 10 bucks at home depot, but i haven't tried upgrading them. I just use my desk lamp now lol
