The 400W/s Las­to­lite flash heads on which this kit is based have the same GN 60 rat­ing as the In­ter­fit EXD400 TI heads. In our tests, power was slightly less po­tent, giv­ing aper­tures from f/3.2 to f/14 (four and a third stops) over two me­tres with a shoot-through um­brella. The power it­self is ad­justed by a step­less ro­tary con­trol and there’s no dig­i­tal dis­play of power, but at least the cal­i­brated mark­ings for f-stops are fairly ac­cu­rate.

The kit in­cludes two high­qual­ity 60cm soft­boxes, but they’re quite fid­dly and time­con­sum­ing to set up. There’s cer­tainly no lack of height in the light­ing stands, which reach a tow­er­ing 2.95m at max­i­mum ex­ten­sion. Over­all build qual­ity is very good and re­as­sur­ingly rugged, in­clud­ing the two strong car­ry­ing bags.
