    Matching the Bowens for power, the Elinchrom kit is also based on two 400Ws heads, but with 66cm square softboxes (If you prefer brollies, Elinchrom sells high-quality models for around £25.)

    Everything is beautifully made, combining sturdy build quality with precision control. A DVD video guide is included.

    A wireless trigger system is included – the transmitter slots into your camera’s hotshoe.

    Push-button controls for power adjustments are accurate, calibrated in 1/10th f-stops, and output remains consistent.

    Auto power-dumping works well.
