Excellent background addition to 620 kit

I bought this light to go with my FP620MPWK Flashpoint II-620 main lights. It makes a great light for background fill, color, etc. when combined with the FPBDK barndoor and filter kit. You have to be a bit careful with placement since it's a bit wide, but it'll still hide safely behind even a fairly small child if you pay attention. I did find that the modeling light was of limited help in aiming a color background fill...the actual strobe illuminated a different radius and space than the mod...

But beyond this minor frustration it worked flawlessly.

Works OK

By

from Loveland, CO  -  Pro Photographer

I have only tested the Flashpoint II FP320MK in my studio. I have not had a chance to use it in the field. On battery (DC) mode it recycles as advertised and in AC mode it cycles a little faster. I have two other Flashpoint strobes I have had for several years and use in my studio all the time. They have proved to be very reliable. My only negative comment about flashpoint products is the flashpoint strip soft box (8"X36") is flimsy.

Good entry level light

By

from North Carolina  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use two of the 320M's to light my green screen background (with 24x24 Glow soft boxes). They're easy to setup and function as expected. The stand that comes with the kit is okay, not great. The case can hold 2 lights, but it's a tight squeeze. The camera-side connector on the sync cord that came with one of the lights wasn't a solid fit. Had to pinch it in some to make it stay connected. Also, one of the sync-cord ports on the light was snug and rough feeling when I tried to plug in my sync cord. As I've seen with most Flashpoint products, manuals leave a lot to be desired. Fortunately, for this product, it's not overly complicated.

Bravo!

By

from Ypsilanti, MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Studio work, people and not. Simple, no cumbersome "features". I can get the lighting I want with a few adjustments. I use the flash trigger with my on camera flash bounced off the ceiling adding one more light source on subject if I want it. I go fully manual and have plenty of aperture latitude. Using a Nikon D800 I get fabulous detail to work with in Photoshop. Hard to believe the quality/price value in this product. Simply sweet!

Returned because of the 2 rude salesmen

By

from New York City, NY  -  Photography Student

This item seemed pretty cool and a great value for money but when I went in to buy it the sales man was rude sarcastic and very unhelpful. The sad thing is that apparently he's the head of the lighting dept. I'm taking some photo classes and don't know much about lighting yet but wanted something simple and entry level to at least use the knowledge I have to help me learn more. The sales guy from the get go treated me like I was some dumb low-life that was wasting his precious time. Since I'm of a different color to him, my first thought is that he's treating me like this because he's racist. Not a good look for a store that is in business to make a profit. I had a lot of questions and was hoping he would give me some basic helpful info since he was the pro with a wealth of knowledge. I ended up buying this package and when I tried it out it worked great except I couldn't get it fire as a slave. I went back to the store to buy a soft box and get some help figuring out the slave problem. The lighting dept was closed and the guy that tried to help me was very friendly and suggested I come back when that dept was open as they'd know more. Came back the next day at lunch and after waiting around for about 10-15mins, I was next in line to see the original sales guy, who then decides to help 2 other sales guys figure out another customers problem. A lady interrupts him and next thing I know he's helping her. I'm a little upset about this as I have to get back to work so rather than cause a stink I just leave. I come back after work and there's a young sales guy there calling out numbers I ask him one question "do I need to get a number and which booth do I pull them from?" He ignores me and continues see if the number he calls is there. Eventually he looks at me and says something in not the nicest tone, so tell him whats with the attitude, I asked you a simple question now your being rude to me? He comes back with some sorry excuse, I say don't worry and walk off which ends in him shouting sarcastically "Have a nice day sir!" I go straight home and get everything I purchased in that order and return it. I refuse to spend my hard earned money anywhere that decides to treat me like this. You don't have to treat me like royalty but sarcasm and disrespect make me realize you don't want me or my money there and I won't mind sharing this in my classes.

Excellent Softbox Kit

By

from Bolingbrook, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this 2 months ago and loved how it made my portraits look that I'm buying a 2nd one. Works well with my Yongnuo wireless receiver. I use it as a main, and to trigger 2 speedlite slaves. Well made and hard to beat the price!

Great item

By

from NJ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

My softbox had a small tear in it. I'm not overly concerned about it. This item works amazing! I highly recommend it for the price..After setting it up I took a couple pictures of my son. I am more than pleased with the results.

Good light, wimpy stand

By

from Los Angeles, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The light is great, and comes in a very convenient carrying cass. However, the light stand that comes with it is pretty weak to handle the large head. It wiggles back and forth and does not seem very steady.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Terry R  how do I connect 2 lights up to flash at the same time not using a wireless trigger?
CHRISTINE M  I connect my Canon 7D with the extra long sync cable (included with the 320m's) to one of the flash units and put the other strobes in slave setting (button on strobes) and the others go off automatically. I know you can use your Canon camera's onboard flash to trigger Canon speedlights (without a sync cable) based on your camera's flash settings so I would think you could technically have the camera flash trigger the 320m's depending on your camera settings. I keep it simple by connecting the sync cable connected to one of the 320m's and with the other 320m's set as slave they all go off together. I did not purchase an expensive wiresless trigger for the 320m's but have a cheap canon remote that I sometimes use to take the shot to avoid any camera shake. I also use the camera's built in timer to take the shot in 2 or 10 seconds and the 320m's go off automatically when my camera is connected to 1 of the 320m's with the sync cable so in my setting, I don't need a wireless trigger. When I purchased the 320m's I did test out using my Canon 7d's onboard flash as a trigger without the sync cable and I believe it worked but went back to the simple method of just using the sync cable connected to 1 320m as the master strobe and it works perfectly. I love the 320m's and they work beautifully for portraits and my product photography. I purchased the set and a week later I puchased one more 320m to use as a backlight. With my product photography I used the 3rd strobe on a higher output setting focused on my backdrop and it makes post production editing so fast. I use to spend hours in photoshop extracting the product and pasting item to a pure white background, with the 3rd 320m, it takes minutes. Any more questions feel free to ask.
lucia r  ARE THE STAND IS INCLUDED WITH THE FLASHPOINT AND WHAT IS THE BATTERY RECHARGER ?? AND HOW MUCH IT WILL BE THIS ONE ?
CHRISTINE M  I bought 3 Flashpoint 320M's, 2 with higher stands and this one with a lower stand (all stands included and excellent quality) and I love them! I did buy them for the battery capability, but the battery and battery charger are a separate purchases which I will be buying at a later date. So I love that these have the capability to go on battery as well as being plugged in. These are amazing lights, easy to use and set up (I have the Canon 7d) and the portraits they produce are amazing as well! You will not be disappointed... And ask for Lewis, a super knowledgeable sales rep who makes excellent recommendations and got my order out the same day! If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me Christine
Shopper  I have purchased two Flashpoint 320 mono lights. I use Nikon's D3 and D 700. What radio trigger do I need so I do not have to use the sync chords?
JOHN B  I use the Paul C Buffs transmitter and receiver with NO problems. I am sure that Adorama has a set of triggers that will work.
