Fantastic kit


from London, UK  -  Pro Photographer

This is a great setup for a range of uses. Most importantly (for me), it works in both the US + UK. Reliable, easy to set up and use.

get some and dont look back


from sundown texas  -  Pro Photographer

They clean crisp and consistantly brilliant. Recycle time are through the roof. Love putting them up at vb and bb games to stop the action.


Power + Precision = Awesome Light


from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

I've primarily been a speedlight shooter more because of portability and easy setup. I'd used plenty of different strobs, but these aren't just strobes. Easy to set and reset with plenty of power to over the power the sun or shoot at a much shallower depth of field.
