We have increased our photography lighting range to include 800Ws studio flash kits, these studio flash heads are very powerful with a guide number of 88. The flash heads are robust with a metal case and fan cooling and have a digital readout showing the power settings. This model is based on our popular E400 studio flash lighting (which is also back in stock) and has the same controls and features but a lot more powerful.
We have had a very busy week trying to keep up with orders, invariably people want their items quickly so we do our best not to fall behind. We have been extra busy as we have had a big shipment of photography lighting kit and it takes time to organise and get the warehouse looking tidy and organised again.

These come in three versions, the first with a universal speedring that will fit many studio flash heads then the Bowens s type fit which fit all Bowens heads and heads that use this fitting like our more powerful studio flash heads which all have this fitting. The last version is the Elinchrom fitting which will fit all modern Elinchrom heads. There are some sizes of softbox which we don’t have all the softbox speedrings.

Our SD series of studio flash heads and studio flash kits are back in stock, the 300Ws flash and the 600Ws flash heads operate in exactly the same way it just the light output is different. Here we have a video presented by Gavin Hoey with an overview of all the functions.
A snoot is a great accessory for your studio lighting equipment, it is designed to modify the light by concentrating it into a small area. often used as a hair light to light up the back of a models hair to give some definition and a rim light effect. It can also be used in combination with a honeycomb grid, the grid will soften the edge of the light and also stop any light spill, which can cause lens flare.
Here is another excellent studio flash lighting setup from studioxil, the clear concise details they give of the setup shows you where to put your flash heads, this setup has 3 flash heads one with a snoot, one with a large softbox and one with just a reflector. Studio setup
