Whether you want to shoot por­traits or prod­ucts, stills or video, the prize bun­dle has ev­ery­thing you could pos­si­bly need, from stu­dio lights, back­ground and re­flec­tor, to a tri­pod, geared head, video light, mi­cro arm to hold gear in place, and even a heavy­duty roller bag to trans­port kit be­tween lo­ca­tions! Just look at this lit­tle lot…

01 Man­frotto


The MK055XPRO-BHQ2 kit com­prises a 055 three­sec­tion alu­minium tri­pod and mag­ne­sium XPRO Ball Head with 200PL plate. The tri­pod fea­tures 50 per cent more rigid­ity than pre­vi­ous mod­els, and the Quick Power Lock sys­tem en­sures your equip­ment is fully sta­bilised un­der all con­di­tions, while the cen­tre col­umn can be ex­tended ver­ti­cally or hor­i­zon­tally. The ball head has a triple lock­ing sys­tem to guar­an­tee cam­era po­si­tion sta­bil­ity, plus fric­tion con­trol and two lev­el­ling bub­bles.

02 Las­to­lite TriGrip

Util­is­ing a tri­an­gu­lar de­sign, which pro­vides a stronger and more stable struc­ture than a cir­cle, the Las­to­lite TriGrip re­flec­tor fea­tures a moulded han­dle with se­cur­ing strap to al­low ac­cu­rate po­si­tion­ing with one hand. This means that light can be re­flected into awk­ward spots with­out the need for a stand or a sec­ond pair of hands.

03 Man­frotto

XPRO Geared Head The XPRO 3 Way Geared Head has been de­signed for in­door and out­door use, with an Adapto body making it the light­est and most pre­cise tri­pod head that Man­frotto has ever cre­ated. The geared move­ment en­ables you to frame im­ages with the ut­most pre­ci­sion, one mi­cro-step at a time, on three axes.

04 Man­frotto

Pro­fes­sional Roller Ba g 70

This pro­fes­sional travel trol­ley bag holds two pro­fes­sional-sized D-SLRs, two 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses, four to five ad­di­tional lenses, two flash­guns, a 17-inch lap­top, plus a tablet, tri­pod and much more. The Roller Bag 70 fea­tures the Man­frotto Cam­era Pro­tec­tion Sys­tem – specif­i­cally en­gi­neered to guar­an­tee the high­est level of pro­tec­tion and shock re­sis­tance where it really counts – and the Exo-tough mul­ti­lay­ered con­struc­tion dif­fuses any sharp im­pact shocks, en­sur­ing max­i­mum pro­tec­tion.

05 Man­frotto


The largest and bright­est in Man­frotto’s LU­MIE range of LED con­stant lights, the MUSE still only weighs just 140g, and is the size of a cas­sette tape. It’s per­fect for making light­ing for your pho­tos and videos sim­ple, flex­i­ble and unique. With su­per-bright, sur­face-mount LED tech­nol­ogy and su­perb colour ac­cu­racy, you can rely on LU­MIE to pro­duce ex­cel­lent im­ages with nat­u­ral colour ev­ery time.

06 Man­frotto

Mi­cro Arm Kit

This ver­sa­tile and in­no­va­tive 15cm fric­tion arm kit fea­tures an in­ter­change­able anti-ro­ta­tion at­tach­ment and ad­di­tional 3/8-inch adapter, which al­lows equip­ment to be se­curely in­ter­locked so the arm will not ro­tate when at­tached to a tri­pod or bar through a clamp.

07 Las­to­lite HiLite

The Las­to­lite HiLite back­ground al­lows you to achieve ‘high key’ pho­tog­ra­phy on lo­ca­tion and in re­stric­tive spa­ces. Us­ing the HiLite means you no longer need to use a back­ground light be­hind the sub­ject. The back­ground also works as a large rear soft­box and il­lu­mi­nates the sub­ject – plus the whole thing is col­lapsi­ble, making it easy to take with you, and saving on space when it’s not in use.

08 Las­to­lite

Lu­men8 Flash Kit

The Las­to­lite Lu­men8 flash kit has been de­signed for pho­tog­ra­phers who need to be mo­bile. With flash heads, re­flec­tors, light stands, soft­boxes, sync ca­bles and a case, this kit is ideal for pho­tog­ra­phy on the move.
