Hi Guys please I need your advice on these Items, I have never used one yet as I have always used the wireless flashgun.
Will this work fine with my kit i.e K20d or K10d, and will I need sync cables etc?
And how much should I be paying for the items listed.

kit comprises two tungsten 3200 light heads including bulbs and three brollies with lighting stand

1 x 120cm translucent brolly
1 x 100cm translucent brolly
1 x 100cm silver brolly

With tungsten lights set white balance to tungsten, there is no need to use sync leads because they are on all the time. The crucial question is the output of the lamps in watts, 3200 refers to their colour temperature

As to their value, what exactly are they. From your scant information they could be 60 watt domestic light bulbs

A bit of a waste of time tbh. It'll get very hot, not give out a great deal of light and most importantly, as far as I can see, totally uncontrollable without any way of attaching modifiers of any sort
