We've scoured the web to find out what people are saying about our Flashpoint and 3Pod photography accessories so you don't have to! Take a look at our glowing reviews.

Flashpoint 47" Grand Softbox with Speedring

"It’s the bread and butter of location photography: the one-light portrait. There’s a million ways to get it right–and a million ways to get it wrong. I’ve discovered one way of pushing the odds heavily into your favor. It’s called the Glow 47″ Grand Softbox. Small enough to take on location, yet big enough to flood a whole room with light, the Grand is an extremely forgiving and totally flattering way to make a portrait when you don’t have the bandwidth to deal with more than one light."

3Pod P5CRH 5-Section 8X Carbon Fiber Compact Reversable Tripod with K3 BallHead

"I haven’t been using this tripod for very long, but it appears to be sturdy, secure, and light-weight, with built-to-last, high-quality construction. I’m not sure how much more you can ask of a tripod, regardless of budget or price. I’m not trying to tell you that the 3Pod is a feature-for-feature match of the comparably sized tripods you’ve been lusting after from the big-name companies. What I can tell you with absolutely certainty, however, is that if you’ve been looking for a reliable, affordable, and compact carbon fiber tripod, the 3Pod P5CRH might just be that tripod."

3Pod P4CFH 8X Carbon Fiber 4 Section FlatFold Tripod

"The 3POD P4CFC is an affordable tripod that continues in the Flashpoint tradition of providing you with quality gear and affordable prices. This tripod really impressed me with it’s supreme portability with the flat fold design and it’s ability to hold some of my heavier lenses on such a compact design. This tripod is stable, portable, and has excellent build quality."

Flashpoint 180 Monolight Battery Powered

"All in all I’d say the Flashpoint 180 Monolight Kit is offers a great value. The one thing I’d like to see is a longer battery power cord so that it is easier to set the monolight on the ground if I’m not using it as a handheld light. It has a built-in belt clip and it seems that this light was designed to only be handheld, because the battery’s power cord is hardly long enough to reach from the ground to the top of a light stand, should I choose to use one. That said, the monolight was nice to use and I hope this Flashpoint 180 Monolight review helps you out. Thanks for reading."
