    I'm looking for something inexpensive to provide soft lighting for ebay pictures of stuff to sell etc.
    In the 'old' days I would have bought a small studio flash and softbox and used it as a downlight.
    Are the softboxes with spiral CFL bulbs terrible? I don't need much, just a single predictable diffuse light source.
    I had wondered about messing with LED floodlights and diffusion, but haven't got anywhere with that.

    I bought a kit for £40 or so back when I was reviewing over there with two stands, bulbs and the whole array of coloured back screens. They worked perfectly for pictures. :)
