ST UDIO FLASH KITS
Enjoy a studio flash setup, right in your own home. We put complete yet cost-effective kits to the test
lashguns have their limitations. The physically small size of the lamp makes for harsh, unflattering light in portraiture and for most still life subjects. You can get around this to some extent by using diffusion domes or by bouncing light off walls or ceilings, but flashguns also lack the power and versatility of studio flash heads.
The studio flash kits that we’ve chosen for this group all include two flash heads, complete with stands, umbrellas or softboxes, and all the cables you need for mains power and triggering. Some go further still with RF (radio frequency) wireless triggering, containing a transmitter that slots into your camera’s hotshoe plus receivers in each head. We tested the performance of the flashes by firing a single one through a translucent umbrella positioned two metres from the subject.
