SmartFlash 4 Two Head Studio Lighting Kit
SmartFlash 4 600WS (300/300) Studio Lighting Kit With 1 Umbrella And 1 Softbox
The Lencarta SmartFlash 4 Two Head Studio Lighting Kit
This kit includes everything you need to get started in studio photography, the SmartFlash 4 Studio Kit includes two newly designed ultra compact flash heads, offering many features, including a 5-stop power range, full remote control, fan cooling and full modelling lamp control. The SmartFlash 4 also offers fast flash durations, quick recycle times and full compatibility with other Lencarta flash heads and accessories. Also included in the kit are two stands, 1x 85x85cm Chiaro Softbox, 1x 100cm White Reflective Umbrella, a reflector, modelling lamps, power leads, a sync lead and a Wavesync Commander remote control kit, which consists of a master unit that fits into your camera hotshoe and two receiver units, one for each flash head. Please note that a honeycomb grid is now available for the softbox, please click here for details. Honeycomb grids provide excellent control of light spread and, when used behind or at the side of the subject, also control lens flare
The Wavesync Commander System allows you to Control each flash head from the Commander Unit, which simply slots into your camera hotshoe. The flash heads can be adjusted either individually or together, as you wish, and as well as adjusting the power, it can switch flash heads on or off and also switch the modelling lamp, flash, ready, beep and slave cell on or off
This kit is ideal for family portrait photography and many other uses, but is not quite as versatile as our kit with one softbox and 1 umbrella, or our kits with more flash heads. It is also ideal as an extra kit for lighting white backgrounds, which need two lights on the background, providing perfectly even and consistent lighting. With a total of 600Ws of power, this kit has plenty of power for small and medium sized home studios. 3 Flash Head and 4 Flash Head kits are also available if required and these will allow you to produce more creative work, and you can also add accessories such as softboxes, 5 in 1 Reflectors etc to your shopping cart - or you can get them later, whichever suits you best.

- Home studio photographers, who need an economical studio lighting solution that's also very versatile.

- Location photographers who need battery powered flashes. Please choose a flash head from our Location Flash Range instead
