Perfect kit for starting portrait photos

I bought this kit for my home studio. This kit is very portable and sets up fast for location shots. This is a great introductory flash kit - everything you need is included. Flash bulbs triggered automatically by my camera flash (no infrared/hotfoot needed, though I believe you can set up with them if you like). Would definitely recommend this to anyone who simply wants a basic flash kit for portrait photography.

OK kit for getting started.

Very lightweight, so portable. You'll need weights if there's even the slightest of breezes. Light output from strobes is not adjustable or consistent, but usable for the most part. I wouldn't recommend for direct lighting, but for shoot through or backlight it works well.

Great For Home Use

By

from Knoxville, TN  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use this kit for home portrait use. It has worked well for the low price. The only disadvantage is the lights are low output and not variable.

Bought a Second!

By

from Cambridge, MA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The stands have some friction; you learn to humor them; let go here before you pull there. Aside from that, maybe I'm dumb, but I'm pretty ecstatic. After I evaluated one kit, I bought a second, because I mostly work on posed subjects in real settings. (I also sprang for 4 Smith-Victor white umbrellas, based on my good experience. The kit comes with silvered umbrellas.) These stands are good and solid. We'll see how long rivets and plastic last, but I haven't lost any sleep. Daylight seems to swamp the slave sensors, so when I was using these for fill on my balcony they didn't slave. If you home-brew, a power-type N-Channel MOSFET will fire the slaves fine. By the way, Smith-Victor said the sync voltage was 12-15V, but I measured under 6; my meter probably loaded it down. The connectors on the heads are submini phone jacks, and the plugs are getting hard to find.
