Hi all, it was recommended to me to invest in Aputure lights (specifically the 120D II) but my goodness are they expensive! Any thoughts/suggestions about less expensive options that don't sacrifice on quality? Perhaps with a budget of around $250? I'm no professional by any means, but definitely not a beginner either. I want a good setup but simply can't afford an $800 light.

Also, what is the best place to buy lighting gear? I've used B&H before, but after reading this article» I'm second guessing whether B&H is the best choice. I probably should've just ignored the researched and kept on with B&H!

Thanks in advance for your help.

That is too broad a question as there are so many kinds of lights out there and so many different requirements for lighting. A 650w Red Head is about the most versatile and cheapest lamp out there but it may be entirely wrong for your needs.
