Hey guys,

I am a total noob to laser and lights. What I need is one good all around laser that has different options like scanning. I also need one good movable lighting head that has different colors, possilbly strobe as well(if that even exsists) haha. That I can control with any major software program on the market like sunlite or martin. Thank you for your time! :)

What is your budget?

While you don't need licensing for lasers in Canada that I know of, you still need training so you know how to properly use it without being a liability to yourself and those around you.

The lowest possible without buying cheap gear. I don't really know what realistic budget would be. I need the light and lazer to showcase a midi controller. So the focus won't be on the lighting gear itself but on the ability of the midi control to control them.

You become a liability to yourself and others when you don't know how to properly use this equipment. Moreso when you become arrogant thinking "It'll be fine. I know what I'm doing" when it's quite obvious you don't have a clue.

Just need to make sure that any laser you use regardless of power is FDA approved. Lots of cheap Chinese imports for sale on Ebay.
