A size­able step up in power com­pared with the RX One kit, the twin RX 4 heads here are rated at 400Ws as op­posed to just 100Ws. In our tests, they de­liv­ered enough power for an aper­ture of f/18 when placed two me­tres from the sub­ject and fired through a translu­cent um­brella. The kit doesn’t ac­tu­ally in­clude an um­brella; it con­tains two 66cm soft­boxes that give a won­der­fully soft light for por­trai­ture.

As with the RX One heads, power is con­trolled by up/down push­but­ton switches, backed up by a dig­i­tal dis­play. De­fault in­cre­ments are 1/10th of a stop, but you can cus­tomise this. Ad­vanced slave modes en­able trig­ger­ing from a reg­u­lar flash­gun, ig­nor­ing pre-flash pulses even in red-eye re­duc­tion modes. In stand­alone set­ups, the wire­less RF trig­ger­ing sys­tem works a treat.
