Nice studio lights for beginners

These are great lights for beginners. I wish I would have went up to the 620's for more power. But they do have enough power for a small studio. The soft boxes are a little hard to figure out but if you youtube how to assemble you should have no problems.

These lights work great!

By

from San Francisco  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have been using these lights for a year. Recently, I bought another 320m light for spotlighting certain areas on the model/background, and it works great. I have had no problem using these lights. They are reliable and sturdy.

Flashpoint 320m Great Purchase

By

from Brooklyn, NY  -  Pro Photographer

After shooting with nikon CLS on a once new d200 and 2 sb800 bouncing off umbrellas, I picked up 2 of these 320m and 2 glo medium soft boxes and I want to kick myself for not shooting with strobes from day 1. They are more responsive in getting those sharp popping images. I shoot a lot of glamour stuff and they are decent for the price. I picked up an impact powersync16 radio system, 1 trigger 2 receivers so I can trigger the sb-800 ' s and the 320m together and it works great. Also picked up a vello freewave wireless remote shutter release, so I don't have to hold the camera and take a selfie. Also picked up a 60 inch b&w umbella from adorama dirt cheap for 20 bucks, throws great light, but will need a 3rd light perhaps the 620m and some sort of portable power supply that can hold 3 strobes. Even tho I can mix the monolites with speedlite via radio triggers I want a little more power for a main light where I have the option to turn them down like I would most likely have to do with the 620m series, I feel. I will most likely still use the sb800 on outdoor shoots on the 60 inch umbrella just because it a lighter load carry.

Great and Can't Beat Price

By

from Saginaw, MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have three of these strobes now. I have never had any issues and they work great. After thousands of flashes I have never had a misfire. The stobe is light and has a quick recycle time. Add the battery pack and you get portable light that is cheaper than a speedlight. Even though this is only 150 watts it is enough power even for outdoor portraits. I have used this with a beauty dish, in full daylight, with the sun to the models back, and it was powerful enough to light the subject.

Good Light For The Money

By

from Trinidad W.I  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The light itself is great, the recycle time is fairly quick, I using it at half power and takes a little less than a second to to recharge. That being said don't expect to do and Fashion Photography with it, There is more than enough power to do Studio work.

Great addition to my studiio lighting

By

from Norman, OK  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Paired with a beauty dish this has become my go to monolight for portraits and headshots. I also attach it to an overhead boom and create unique toplit touches. Especially like the built in slave unit, when it becomes necessary in a three light situation. Light, portable, fast recycle. At this point I've not had any negative situations arise
