Great Affordable Flash

Excellent little flash for the money. The only complaint is that I wish you had more control over the modeling light using the battery pack. You can turn it on but it only stays on about 20 seconds and goes off. Also The battery pack from the earlier flashpoint lights are different. 5 wire vs 4 wire guess thats for the modeling light. The batteries are the same but the pack is different.

Not the light for me

When I purchased the unit I was told and sold an adapter ring for a Paul Buff Octagon Softbox, that ring did not fit or work on the light. I sent the ring back and got a "specialist" on the phone who said he had the right ring and would send it out. Well that ring did not work either and I was told by another "specialist" that you can't put a softbox on this light, what's up with that. I returned the whole order. This may be a good unit but who is going to use it as is with no diffusion.

At this price you can't ask for more!!

By

from Lonodn, ON

They are what they are - cheap $200 monos. That said, I love them and they're more than enough for my needs at moment... Also, the Flashpoint and Glow modifiers are surprisingly great! At this price, you really can't go wrong and I recommend them 100%!

Fantastic

By

from NY, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Used as a backlight for headshots with the Glow octabox. These lights just rock. Easy to use and set up. Reliable and the build quality seems solid. I highly recommend them. I really can't think of any cons at this time. I bought two!

Best product for the value.

By

from Houston, TX  -  Pro Photographer

Great light, very reliable, I have three of them. The only aggravating part of flashpoint is some modifiers are always on back order. But the speed rings are always spot on. Buy it, you'll be happy.

Love it!

By

from San Juan, PR  -  Pro Photographer

Fast recycle time, beautiful white ligh & simple to use. The battery withstands a whole shooting session outdoors. It's a workhorse. If you are not shure of what kind of portable monolight to buy, look no more. Now stop reading this, and just buy it! You won't regret it. It's better than the specs tell ya'.

Bought this and the 400 also. Great value. Lightweight, but durable. Led modeling light a plus!

This fits my needs at the moment!!!!

By

from Houston  -  Photo Enthusiast

This fits my needs at the moment. It will not overpower the sun if that is what you are looking for. I love how there is no lamp protruding. LED is bright enough for studio work. Outside, in the bright sun however, its not so great when mixed with modifiers. The LED CAN BE dialed INDEPENDENTLY from the flash power. Push the knob for 2 or 3 seconds, the led lamp icon on the back will turn red. Now you can turn the knob and set your desired LED brightness. Push it again and it will bring you to adjust the Flash power. It does not come with a manual. I suggest to purchase this with the Adorama VIP, gives you one full year warranty for cheap. The reason why I chose this over the other monolights was for the inexpensive battery you can connect it to. Overall I am happy with it. It fits my bill and lighting experiments.

It's a pretty legit strobe. Very affordable and gets the job done. I use it in open fields and brings out the subject.

Stopped Working after First Use

By

from Boston, MA

The unit itself appears to be fairly well-built, although in the middle of using it for the first time in the studio, it suddenly stopped firing. I'm trying to return it for warranty service - we'll see how reliable it is after I get a new unit.

Questions about this item:

MARCO M  What beauty dish fits with these. does this has same mount as 320m II?
ROBERT K  Same mount as the 320. Don't use beauty dishes just soft boxes, sorry. Robert K
Shopper  since there is no "real" manual that says how long to charge the power pack ... nor is there any thing that says how much charge there is ... so question is "how long should the power pack be charged before using and how long does it take to full charge"? as I don' want it to run out of charge in the middle of a shoot.
DANIEL T  The website specs say >300 minutes to a full change and >200 full power flashes.
Nick S  Will the battery power pack for this charge in 220V?
VIC E  hi nick, i actually sent the unit back because i lost the power going to the unit. i no longer have it. sorry!
