The new SmartFlash 2 is tiny, light and crammed with new technology.


·         5 stops of power adjustment.  A full 5 stops of adjustment opens the creative possibilities and allows larger apertures to be used when needed

·         Powerful modelling lamp. The SmartFlash 2 is supplied with a 150-watt modelling lamp. The modelling lamp is fully adjustable to match if required, the power set on the flash head. The modelling lamp also dims while recycling, so you'll have a visual confirmation that it's ready to fire again even if you've switched off the ready beep.

·         S1/S2 slave options, the slave cell can be set to either respond to or to ignore the first flash, allowing it to be used with hotshoe flashguns that fire a pre-flash. The slave cell can also be switched off so that it doesn't flash in response to other people's flashes.

·         Auto power dumping, this makes it unnecessary to fire the flash manually when the power setting has been reduced.

·         Full remote control via USB port. This allows you to set the controls on the SmartFlash 2 using our USB radio trigger and remote control set. as well as on the flash head

·         Uses the same remote control as our other new technology flashes. This means that you can use the SmartFlash 2 in conjunction with our other new technology flashes (SuperFast, Atom and future models) and control all of them individually from the transmitter fitted to your camera hotshoe.

·         Fan cooled, to avoid the risk of overheating. It also has overheat protection, for extra safety.

·         Precise digital control of power, displayed on the LCD display panel. The digital control knob adjusts the power setting and displays it on the LCD control panel.

·         Small and light. With the head cap fitted, the SmartFlash 2 is just 30cm long, 13.2cm diameter, and weighs in at just 1.56kg.


Be in Control
Full digital control is great, and on the SmartFlash 2 it's very easy to use. You can adjust the power over its entire range by turning just one knob. Instantly set five stops of power adjustment from 6Ws to 200Ws with precision control.
Modelling lamp control is also simple. Choose from full brightness, to off, or anywhere in between, simply by turning one knob.
The various buttons control modelling lamp on or off, flash ready beep on or off and slave cell on or off.
Or control these functions using our Wavesync Commander, at any distance up to 100m.

Full Metal Body.
The new SmartFlash 2 has a tough but lightweight aluminium case that protects its interior from knocks, and protects you from the risk of electric shock.
As well as the tough exterior, clever software takes care of the interior components as well as the user replaceable flash tube and powerful 250 watt Halostar modelling lamp. This software automatically switches off the modelling lamp after a period of approximately two hours, to extend the life of the lamp and to prevent any possibility of overheating.

And because the new SmartFlash 2 uses the same Wavesync Commander system  that's used on our SuperFast and Atom flashes, it can be used alongside them, in the same shoots. This is the remote control and triggering system that we've now adopted as standard, so the new SmartFlash 2 will be compatible with our future flash heads too.

The new SmartFlash 2 is also available in a choice of complete kits

Fitted with the standard reflector (available separately) it produces a guide number of 100 (equivalent to f/10 @ 10’ at 100 ISO or f/5.6 when fitted with a 150cm softbox) which is ideal for portrait, glamour or fashion photography. Please note that this reflector, shown in the 360 photo, is NOT included.

Its 5 stops of power adjustment (full power right down to 1/32nd power) allows a wide choice of aperture settings, it has extremely accurate power consistency and colour temperature consistency, full power recycling of only 1 second, the minimum power adjustment of 0.2 second allows it to keep up with most cameras even in continuous shooting mode,  and it accepts all of the vast range of light shaping tools and modifiers produced in the very popular Bowens ‘S’ fitting.

Tiny size: This is our smallest and lightest flash head ever, with the standard reflector fitted and ready to use, it weighs just 1.3kg and is just 30cm long!

Please choose a reflector, if required, from our light shapers page. The umbrella reflector  is small and compact, the standard reflector is larger and has a lip that accepts honeycombs.

Each flash head also comes with:
1 x Protective Head cap
1 x 150W modelling lamp
1 x Mains cable
1 x Sync cable
2 x Spare fuses
