Flashpoint Unveils Budget Studio Lights For Under $100
PMA@CES Trade Show NewsRead More
Let's make a studio lighting setup.
We need a Main light, Fill light, Edge light, Hair light, Back light.
Heavy cost for getting great results. Pro gear is sophisticated and engineered to deliver spectacular, consistent color balanced lighting. But definitely not price sensitive. Heavy.
Welcome the Flashpoint Budget Studio Flash 160. The middle talent of the family.
You won't be able to light up Madison Square Gardens, but you will be able to achieve perfect pictures with the same effects and master touch that the expensive gear features for portraits, products and location imagery. And all the control of blending several flash heads in syncopated harmony for a fraction of the cost! Set up is a breeze and the lightweight unit stays cool under pressure. 160 watt seconds of power, modeling lamps, tremendous 4 stop output range, zippy recycle, and a punchy 141 guide number in a budget package. You simply cannot go wrong.
The Flashpoint Budget Studio family of moonlights, FPLFBF300W, FPLFBF160W, and the FPLFBF120W, are the solution for the budget minded strobist that wants to get results without compromising flash quality. With 300, 160 and 120 watts seconds respectfully, the AC powered monolights recycle rapidly with little amp draw. You can use them on household circuits without blowing fuses. Run them off our new Flashpoint Power Station and you can bring them virtually anywhere.
Photographers and reviewers shower praises on the "price/power/feature ratio" of the Flashpoint models, over similar products on the market. Whether you are a fresh beginner or a frugal seasoned shooter these honeys will sweeten your studio hive.

I needed a fill/accent light to go along with my other strobes and gave this a try. I wasn't expecting too much for the price but I was pleasantly surprised. Recycle time is great and it syncs at 1/250 with no issues. The light weight allows me to use it on a boom without worrying about it collapsing. Just two minor things I didn't like: the ready beep cannot be turned off and the optical slave cannot be disabled, even when it's connected to a trigger (so forget about using this as part of a group in a multi-light setup). Also, be aware the [optional] speedring attaches with thumbscrews and not an actual reflector mount, so you're probably best sticking to umbrella shafted modifiers.
I use 2 of these handy lights with umbrellas, and this give me lighting to photograph rooms. Perfect setup for me.
I've made so much money with these sturdy lil puppies that it's unexplainable. They do the trick & to me these are the best little secret in the industry.... It has a modeling light, which I will likely not use much, but its nice to have. It also has an audible beep, again not something I will use but its nice to have. Both of these things can be turned off quickly with dedicated switches on the flash.
