investigation: Unveiling the Mystery

But wait… Before we dive in, let’s address the elephant in the room. These lights initially came to us (€94,95) with a veil of mystery, lacking any discernible brand. However, through some sleuthing and investigative prowess, we uncovered their true identity: Tectake Studio Lights, Product ID 400894 (€140,90 wow!) Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s shed some light on what these babies have to offer.

Unpacking the Goodies

At first glance, the Tectake Studio Lights may seem like a steal, boasting a modest 4.3/5 rating from a handful of reviews with an affordable price on bol.com. But are they truly worth the investment?

Inside the box, you’ll find two tripods, each equipped with softboxes and lamps, along with a single gallows tripod featuring its own softbox and lamp. Additionally, the package includes ballast bags for added stability, though the absence of weights is a slight downside. Fear not, though; a couple of improvised items can serve as makeshift solutions. Oh, and let’s not forget the convenient carry bag for easy transport.

Ease of Setup

Setting up these lights is a breeze, which might also be a downside, requiring just a few simple steps to get you ready to illuminate your creative space in no time.

Impressive Illumination

With each light boasting a respectable 50 watts and a color temperature of 5500 Kelvin, you can expect impressive results akin to natural daylight. The softboxes effectively diffuse the light, casting soft, flattering shadows for professional-looking shots.

User-Friendly Features

Adjustable height? Check. Easy setup? Double check. These lights are undeniably user-friendly, making them ideal for beginners in a small studio.

Word of Caution

However, before you rush to add these lights to your cart, there are a few caveats to consider. Some users have reported concerns regarding the lights’ durability, with mounting poles that feel somewhat flimsy. Attempting to extend them to their maximum height of 350cm may leave you feeling like you’re playing a precarious game of Jenga. Additionally, the cords could use a few extra inches for added convenience.

The Verdict

So, are the Tectake Studio Lights worth it? If you’re operating on a tight budget and in need of basic illumination, then they might just fit the bill. However, if you’re seeking professional-grade equipment or prioritizing safety and durability, you may want to explore other options.

Our Experience

Despite their shortcomings, we’ve incorporated these lights into our own studio setup due to lighting budget constraints. While they serve their purpose for now, we acknowledge their limitations and recommend exercising caution during use, and we don’t mean that lightly; these things can and will fall over.


In conclusion, we’ve laid out the facts, but the ultimate decision rests with you, dear reader. Whether you opt for the Tectake Studio Lights or venture elsewhere, keep creating and shining bright!
