I just bought two Diva 400's and love them although I do need to get myself a third light for backgrounds and so on...

But my question is whether or not anyone has any feedback on the Matthews Road Rags C-vival Kit?

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&Q=&is=REG&O=produ...

I'm usually a one man band and with a camera case and two kino's and a rack n roller cart, I need a small amount of grip to cut and shape light. Is this the best deal around or no? any thoughts or other sugestions?

Thanks

matthews make good gear. I use paladin c-stands (they are a hollywood rental house that makes their own) way cheaper than matthews and built to professional standards. I think stands were $90, arms around $25. I use a bogen rags set-up identical specs to the matthews I think around $200-$300. My prices are 4-5 yesr old though - with the case for the stands and higher resale value the Matthews kit is probably not a bad deal.

lowel rifas work well for me when working alone - mounted on an articulated stand they make make great backlights. You can position the backlight directly behind the talent without the stand being visible. Sets-up in a couple of minutes.
