    I want to start using fluorescent lights for digital video production
    and I am trying to decide between getting two seperate Diva-Lite 400
    kits (each setup consisting of four 2-foot lamps in a fixture for a
    total of 220 watts each= 440 watts total) for just over $2,000 versus
    getting one of these kits the Gaffer Select Fluorescent for around
    $2300 consisting of two four-bank fixtures (FotoFlo 400s?) each
    consisting of four 4-foot lamps for a sub-total of 160 watts each for
    320 total watts.

    One big question occurs to me- How is it possible that the Diva's with
    their smaller lamps are rated with more watts than the FotoFlos with
    their four foot lamps?

    The Gaffer Select Kit (which I presume consists of two Foto-Flo 400s)

    and how is this kit different than this similar kit but cheaper B&H
    exclusive, the Photo Gaffer Kit with two Foto-Flo 400s
