I have never owned umbrellas, stands, clamps, etc. I am about to invest in some to use with SB-800's. Could someone recommend a reasonably priced manufacturer or line of products for me? My use will not be the most demanding but I do not want junk either.
Thank you for your help.
Good Luck and Good Fishing!

I'm not into studio photography bigtime, but find that the Photoflex line offers good quality at a reasonable price. I have a few of their umbrellas that I use with Sunpak 383's and they work just fine.
For my limited purposes, the "general brand" clamps and lightstands from B&H have earned their keep. However, if you anticipate being a heavier user than I am, call B&H and ask them to send you their lighting catalog....it's free. Besides showing the equipment, it contains a wealth of information on setting it up.
