    which out of these 2?

    I have found 2 start up lighting kits that I really like but i don't know which out of the 2 i should get.

    Kit 1
    link here
    INCLUDES:
    1 x Yongnuo YN560 manual flash (guide number 58)
    1 x Shoot Through 36" diffuser Umbrella
    1 x Speedlight flash and umbrella Holder
    1 x 200cm Light stand with Carry bag
    1 x Carry Bag

    Kit 2
    link here
    NCLUDES:
    1 x YN460II Flash Speedlight
    1 x CTR-301P Wireless Flash Trigger, Reciever and PC Sync cable
    1 x CTR-301PRX Wireless Receiver
    1 x 200cm Light Stand (with carry bag)
    1 x Speedlight Flash and Umbrella Holder
    1 x Shoot Through 36" diffuser Umbrella

    If I get kit 1 i have to get a wireless trigger, which i'm aware of, but it has the 560 flash.
    If I get kit 2 it has a wireless trigger, but it only has the 460ii flash

    So I thought I would get your valued opinion.

    I have a small place, so until i upgrade homes, or get my own studio space, I wont really be able to get more lights etc.

    If you take option 1 how are you going to trigger your lights? If your budget is fixed to this amount i would probably go with option #2 as the freedom of wireless will help. If you watch Zach Aria'sOneLight DVD or similar they set everything manually so this will probably make the 460 a better option. Besides i am sure the 460 has more power output.(as opposed to a zooming head) If the flash is for off camera work then i feel the zoom does not make to much of a difference (yet) Just my 2c.
    A heap of Nikon stuff and some really bright lights!

    You can compare the two Yongnuo speedlites on this website.

    I'm not set to that amount, I have extra funds for triggers (that will set me back about $50 but i'm ok with that).

    will have a look a the link, thanks.
