Re­flecta VisiLux Light­ing Kit 180

If two stu­dio flash heads are bet­ter than one, wait un­til you’ve tried three…

While this stu­dio light­ing starter setup lacks a big brand name, delve in­side the carry bag and the con­tents more than com­pen­sate. For­get the usual pair of flash heads, as this set up in­cludes three. You also get three stands, a 70x50cm soft­box and two brol­lies (one shoot-through, one re­flec­tive).

At 180Ws apiece, the heads aren’t big on power, but their space-sav­ing de­sign makes them ideal for a com­pact home stu­dio. Power is con­trolled by a step­less dial, though there’s no in­di­ca­tion of flash out­put. How­ever with a bit of trial-and-er­ror to nail the right set­tings the VisiLux setup works flaw­lessly, whether trig­gered by your Nikon’s flash or the sim­ple ra­dio trig­ger that comes with the kit.

This kit is great value, but a third flash head isn’t es­sen­tial when you’re start­ing out, so don’t rule out bet­ter-specced twin-head set­ups for the same money.
