Coollight CL-655 VS Kinoflo Diva400

Well.. i know the price difference is huge so in case my budget would have been unlimited i will choose the second one to be sure, but anyone manage to have some success with the lighting set from Coolight?

Lookks pretty attractive to me!

Thanks

Vincent Thomas.

The Coollights CL-655 has six PL55 tubes and the Diva400 has only four. Compare the CL-455 to the Diva400. The Diva400 has dimmable ballast, which is an expensive feature but the Coollights are far more affordable. I want one, but have no budget at this time. If there is a grids option, get grids so you can have some more control over the light.

Hi Vincent,

I just bought the 455 and the 255. They turned up yesterday and I'm giving them a proper work out this weekend. I've worked with kino's a lot over the years, but have long thought they are overpriced. My first impression of these coollights is that they are an excellent buy.
