At 200Ws, the flash heads in this kit aren’t especially powerful, but they are easy to use and feature a push-button power adjustment system with 1/10th f-stop increments.
The kit comes with one 60cm square softbox and one translucent umbrella, both of which are pretty good quality, but the light stands feel flimsy.
There’s no auto-dumping facility, but the heads fire automatically to ditch power after the output is reduced.
One smart feature that’s shared with the Elinchrom kit is that the heads can fire as slaves from a flashgun, ignoring any pre-flash pulses.
Controls are neat and intuitive, and most of the components are good quality
Pros… Can be synced with a flashgun, fairly inexpensive
Cons… Light stands are flimsy, heads a little lacking in power
WE say… A good budget choice with some handy features
