    the light stands were about $60, same for the green screen stand. I already had the screen.

    My wife just picked me up an ephoto light set from amazon (2 large lights with umbrellas and 2 smaller lights for lighting a green screen). The umbrellas came with this one, but it was missing the two small light stands. They are "out for delivery" right now so they should be waiting for me when I get home from work.
    I actually got my greenscreen when I originally ordered VisionLab from TubeTape. It sat in a drawer for years without being used. But I built a PVC frame for it last fall and used it once (for still pictures), and now I have better lighting.
    She also surprised with me a Panasonic Lumix FZ150, so I guess it's time to get busy and do something...
    Have fun with your lights!

    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.

    added a Chinese paper lantern to my light set. I think it will be a nice addition
