Studio Lighting Deal
Novatron doesn't make them like they used to, so here's the same thing, for even less money, from Adorama:
Adorama Three Strobe Set.
Adorama has a $400 three-light strobe set, perfect for portraits and product photography.
It includes three monoblock strobe heads, three stands, and two umbrellas (the third strobe is used as a catchlight from the rear without needing an umbrella).
It also includes a big case about 37" long. The first 50 orders will get a free upgrade to a case with wheels; otherwise, the regular basic case isn't that exciting if you plan to have to haul it around.
These three strobes each plug in the wall with three power cords.
They each have an integral slave, so use your camera's pop-up or shoe-mounted flash on Manual to fire all the strobes together. Of course you can use additinal wireless, radio and IR slaves if you like.
These strobes also operate on battery power if you want to buy additional battery packs, one for each strobe.
The strobes have variable power and modeling lights, and of course to conserve the batteries the modeling lights don't light on battery power.
Flash meters are nice, but I don't use one. Just shoot at about f/16 in manual exposure mode at your lowest ISO, look at your LCD, and adjust the aperture (or lights) to taste.

Help me help you top
I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.
The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get your goodies. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. eBay is always a gamble, but all the other places always have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.
Thanks for reading!
