yeah mine came with umbrellas, but I ordered 2 additional umbrellas. It came with black and silvers, i ordered a couple whites so i could use them as shoot through umbrellas. I'm thinking of later getting another stand and some can lights. One problem I have is my apartment makes a shoe box look huge, so its kinda difficult to set all this stuff up. Even storing it is becoming problematic.
Hey I just watched a youtube video on china ball lights, those look kind of kool. In the video they hung one off a boom pole and moved it along as the actor moved through the scene, it was a pretty kool effect.
