Re­fresh­ingly light­weight, this kit con­tains two fairly com­pact RX One heads. There’s no com­pro­mise when it comes to build qual­ity, and the sys­tem in­cludes qual­ity light stands, wire­less RF trig­ger­ing, sturdy re­flec­tors, two um­brel­las (translu­cent and white), and high-qual­ity bags.

The um­brel­las have 7mm shafts but, as with the RX 4 heads also on test, an additional clamp is fit­ted to ac­cept um­brel­las with a stan­dard 8mm shaft.

Re­fine­ments in­clude cool­ing fans with auto heat sens­ing, so they only kick in when the go­ing gets hot. Con­trols are in­tu­itive yet wide-rang­ing. How­ever, with each head rated at GN 32.5, they’re lack­ing in power. In our two-me­tre test us­ing a translu­cent shoot­through um­brella, max­i­mum power was only enough for shoot­ing at f/8 (ISO100).
