Default Walmart Softbox

Living in Hartwell, a small town in NE Georgia we do not have a camera shop in our community. Headed to Walmart to buy charcoal for the grill after viewing the great food photos from the last post. To my pleasent surprise Walmart is now selling softbox light kits for e-bay traders. Fifty bucks gets two lights, box several background colors and a small tripod. Now what isle has the 1DS111 ?

Curious. We don't have a photo store locally anymore either (unless you count Wolf Camera). It seems they could not compete with the competition (the internet).
I did a search on the Walmart Web Site, and looked for softbox. The only thing I came up with was a book.
Do you have a brand and model for those lights? Just out of curiosity more than anything else.
Thanks

A photograph is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good.

For those wanting more information. I will be going into town this evening, town is 18 miles from the house. Be glad to write down the model # and post later this evening.

Who knows maybe the blue light will be on

Shopped the local walmart after dinner. Is this a great country or what? Anyway.
Portable Lighting Studio That is the product name.
Includes 16x16x16 box two lights (no information as to power) two different color backgrounds one white one black. Small tripod. Sk #064000030035
Price was 48.88
None on display that were open. Hard to say what they really look like other then the pictures on the box.
Hopes this helps for anyone wanting to venture into entry level lighting..........

I see this advertised in magazines for $79 or more so WalMart's $48 is a good deal.
