Compare Specifications

Please check the chart below to compare the features and real world performance. All lights were tested under the same conditions and each test is based on 10 sample readings, using  the industry standard testing tools, a Minolta Flash Meter V to test the power output and a Minolta Color Temperature Meter to test the colour temperature.

We tested the various lights in a professional studio. You will see from the test results  that the results obtained on our studio tests are better than we claim in the specifications on the product pages. We are one of very few manufacturers who publish these important figures.

Flash output figures are for guidance only and may vary, depending on the studio size and decoration. All of our tests have been carried out in a large studio with a high ceiling and with mainly black walls. For this reason, our figures are conservative compared to some of the claims made by other sellers, who clearly have not tested their products under similar conditions.
