LED Lighting

Thinking of picking up a small LED light array and a light stand for some portrait photography.

Is this stuff decent? Is it what I need?

LED light:

Stand:

I've got that LED light and use it for video, it wouldn't be very good for portraits.
Your better off with a good flash and umbrella for that.

Ok I see what your going for now, it gives a very soft look with some shadows.
It is a good light and comes with the screens, plus you can make some flags for it as well.

Personally I want to give this cheap little unit a try:

Amazon Amazon

Good for macro and would also provide a nice soft light for portrait photography. However I barely do either of those so while I think it would be fun to work with ill just stick with my offboard flash.
