    Not bad for $400, folks.

    I am a semi-professional photographer, and I was looking for some lightweight, cheap strobes of decent power. These are budget strobes from the get-go, if you want professional products, you have to pay professional prices. Look at Broncolor or Profoto if you want high quality. Everything was well packed, but one of my strobes was dead on arrival. Sent it out, received it back in about a week. The plastic on everything is about average to better quality, nothing to call home about, but it gets the job done. I'll go down a list of the items.The strobes are adequately powerful for shooting through an umbrella or softbox in sub-7 ft distances at around 1/200 and f/8 at minimum power. The dial in the back has a 2-stop variability. This is NOT a lot of latitude when shooting, but it's not a make-or-break kind of thing for me. I calculated this simply by shooting at f/8 on minimum power and checking the histogram until it matched up, and it matched at f/16... 5/5 Jimmy Lamont (Tampa, Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent value with a few minor qubbles

    I needed a simple 'LIGHT' and portable studio to cart around for outside my studio shoots.This is one heck of a value and you cannot go wrong.I am amazed it is so inexpensive.The strobes are fast recharging and the quality for the money is excellent.If you want studio grade, you will need a fat wallet and a strong back. There is no reason to buy a $2000 set to bang around other than for ego.Let me address the 'quibbles' others have mentioned.1) Diffusor assembly.

    Great product for the price, Be careful with the sellers and don't believe all the other reviews.

    Starts smoking if used under studio conditions

    I bought 4 of these as lights to take out on location (my studio is fitted out with 5 Alien Bees). Since these are small and cheap - I figured that I could keep them in my vehicle for some impromptu shoots.I set up one of the NEEWER 300W Studio Photographic Strobe/Flash units to do some testing in the studio. I set it up with an umbrella - with the light aimed upwards at about a 45-degree angle (so that any heat from the modeling lamp would rise away from the light).After just 2 hours - it started to smoke. I suspect that one of the capacitors overheated and melted.Afterwards - I re-read the instructions which indicate that you can only use the flash a couple minutes at a time, followed by 5 minutes of non-use.That certainly is not something that is very useful for a studio shooting situation.I'm glad that I didn't spend too much on these, and since they are cheap, I am going to tear one apart to see if there is a way to mount some kind of... 2/5 James in MPLS - See all my reviews I bought 4 of these as lights to take out on location (my studio is fitted out with 5 Alien Bees).

    Solid compact flash

    I have to say this light was more than I was expecting for the money. I have shot many years as a professional doing both commercial and portrait photography and was suprised at the performance of this light for the money. While I do not shoot for a living anymore I wanted lights that were portable and could be used for portraiture. At 300 watt seconds it is more than enough power for portraiture even with softboxes. What surprised me the most about this light when I first saw it was its small size - about the size of a one pund coffee can but a little longer. It is smaller than it looks in the pictures due to the fact that the buttons are small, but very usable. How much light does it put out, well with ISO 200 I had a good exposure at f11 @ 16ft using it direct with its built in reflector, this calculates to a guide number of 88 for ISO 100 in feet. The light was even and covered the field of view for a 28mm equivalent lens.

    You can't go wrong at the price

    At $69, this unit is easily 1/3 the price of other similarly-rated monolights. That in itself makes it a great option if you want to get your feet wet with monolight usage. The light works as you would expect and produces plenty of light. I can't comment on how long it will last, and I don't even know if you can replace the bulbs, but I've taken it out 3 times so far, and shot about 150 shots with it without problems.The recycle time is very short, and at full power seems within specs at maybe just below 3 seconds.The power range doesn't seem very wide. At it's lowest power setting it's still plenty bright. You may have to back it up manually from the subject, or bounce it off an umbrella.There is no auto-dump setting, meaning that when you lower the power you will need to hit the test button to dump the power.The beep that indicates it's ready is a bit loud, and can't be turned off.

    Great Light for the Money!

    The light itself seems well built. Definitely plenty of power for my use, which is primarily portrait and product photography. There are a couple of things I'm not enamored with:1) No paperwork of any kind was included in the box. Nothing at all. No warranty paperwork, no instructions, etc.I know how to use a monolight, so it's not too big of a deal. But to someone who isn't familiar with them, instructions would be useful.2) You cannot turn off the beeping. You can for the cycling rate, but that's it. And it's LOUD.It's entirely possible that I'm wrong. Maybe you can silence the report from the buttons...I wouldn't know though. I received no manual.Other than that, I'm very pleased. Like I said, plenty of power for my needs and seems to be well built. I've used other lights in this price range and have not been pleased with them.

    Best Photography Uses: studio, portraiture, moving subjects, and more!
    The StudioPRO SD-400, 400W/s Monolight is a well-built and powerful strobe head that makes a great addition to any studio. It has a digital dial which allows the photographer to adjust the power 1/10th of an f-stop. It is compatible with any light modifier with a Bowens speedring and is equipped with an umbrella mount. The StudioPRO 400W/s Monolight has a fast recycling time of 3 seconds or less. All StudioPRO Monolights include the A/C power cord as well as the sync cord to plug the Monolight into an on camera PC port.
    Monolights/Strobe heads will give the photographer much more lighting power as well as more lighting control than continuous lighting sources. With Monolights/Strobe heads, photographers are able to use more power, which leads to lower ISOs (less grain/noise), faster shutter speeds (moving subjects), and greater apertures (f/64, f/45, f/32).

    Deceptive product description - but what comes in the box performs reasonably well

    has performed reasonably well. The recycle time is about 3 to 4 seconds at full power, but shorter recycle times occur at lower power ratings. These strobes are NOT fan cooled - so if you use them at full power with rapid shooting - you'll likely overheat them. The fashion and portrait work I've done with them on 3 shoots have worked well without issues running at 1/3 to 1/2 power; this allows faster recycle times to capture more candid shots. I am VERY pleased that there is a switch to turn off the buzzer (indicating the light has charged) and that it allows Bowens mounts to the front. The components are light plastic so it probably will not support larger softboxes but using an umbrella works well.

    Delivers only 1/4 of the power claimed, no reflector included.

    1/5 Adam Smith (San Mateo, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neewer® 200W 5600K Bowens Mount Photo Studio Flash Speedlite Strobe Light Monolight (Electronics) This is a review for the Neewer T-200B strobe. This unit does not have the output expected for a strobe claiming to be 200Ws and a GN of 48 meters. I put a 60-degree silver reflector on this strobe and set it up right next to a Canon 600ex-rt speedlite set to 35mm zoom (approximately 60 degree coverage). At 3 meters distance, my L-478D light meter measures f/9.5 and 2/10 for the speedlite at full power, and only f/8.0 for this strobe at full power. f/8 at 3 meters is a guide number of 24, not 48 as claimed. That's a full 2 stops below the rated power; it should meter f/16.0 at 3 meters distance on axis. A 600ex-rt is about 60Ws, and the meter readings for this strobe are consistent with it being about a 50Ws unit. Definitely not a 200Ws strobe! Returning this item.

This review is from: Neewer® 200W 5600K Bowens Mount Photo Studio Flash Speedlite Strobe Light Monolight (Electronics) I bought this as a fill light to supplement my Neewer C250. Its so-so..Cons:#1. See the deflector its pictured with? (The bowl shaped thing in front of light) IT DOESNT COME WITH IT!!! So this is misleading!#2) The modeling light is VERY bright. It can be turned ON or OFF but not dimmed.. and it doesnt briefly turn off when the strobe fires (like the C250) so unless you take that into consideration, you get overblown photos.#3) Theres no indicator of how much power youre dialing in; you have to count clicks (the C250 has a light up LED power level around the knob)Pros:#1) It comes with a bowens-type attachment cover to protect bulbs when not in use, which the C250 didnt.#2) cheap, powerful. good recycling time#3) handle makes it easier to holdConclusion???

    This is a great starter kit! Great if you are just getting into studio photography. My thoughts on each item:The strobes worked fine .. nothing much to say here untill i have had them alittle longer to see how they perform. It comes with some long power cords. you shouldnt have a issue plugging them in where you want.The package comes with 2 umbrellas and 2 softboxes which was in perfect condition. You do have to assemble the softboxes but be careful when doing so because it is not the "highest" of quality.Barn door came fine, a few scratches but its doesnt bother me. The gels had smudges all over them but i just got a cloth and wiped them down. The trigger set worked fine with no issues yet.The stands are cheap.. And i mean cheap. I would suggest buying some other stands even if you are using them inside or get sand bags. For the priced i paid for this package you would think the stands would be decent but they aren'tThe bag... 5/5 Brandon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: NEEWER 750W Professional Photographic Studio Strobe Flash Light Kit - Barn Door, Soft Box, Umbrellas, Stands, Lamps, Trigger & More (Electronics) Nice starter kit,make sure that you confirm receipt of carrying case.Light stands are too light for "this kit" will need some weight to remain steady. can easily fall, if fully extendedAlso,two out the three stands were stuck upon delivery and unable to open/expand unless forced with the use of pliers etc...which happens repeatedly when collapsed. I had to use a piece of masking tape to stop it from collapsing totally.Lights are a little slow to recycle but you get used to it with the help of the buzzer... and works well with the triggers and with the various control options.Umbrellas are cute almost a joke, VERY inferior... invest in an upgrade IMMEDIATELY,if going to be used repeatedly.

    GREAT Light from this dish!!!

    5/5 Sylvester The Photographer Potter (North Carolina -- USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Beauty Dish 28" Kit with Honeycomb Grid and Speedring for Alien Bees Strobe Light B400, B800, B2800 (Electronics) I've used this dish for a little under a year now, and it gives me GREAT results. I can use it for almost any style of beauty lighting as well as outdoor shots. The dish is not too heavy at all for its size, and it fits the AB800 very well after switching the speed ring with a PCB one. It also comes with a Sock that fits easy, and works like a charm for softer spread. I've uploaded two of my images taken with this dish to show the quality of the light it produces, and the coverage as well. While people are under the delusional influence that equipment MUST be expensive to be good...I try to stray from that. I think the 28" dish is a GREAT buy for anyone who wants one...I have a 16' and this 28", and I use them both for different purposes., August 16, 2012

    Let's see. A perfect beauty dish at a great price. Hmmm. Should I buy one?

    If you're in the market for a beauty dish you'll find this one well made, well put together and solid. For less than $100 I got a great dish, a diffusion cover and an adapter/speedring for less than just the speedring available from the maker of my lighting system. I bought it because I do a lot of corporate portraits on exterior locations and most of the time wind is a problem. It just messes up every softbox, umbrella and diffuser I try. Many people counseled me to use a beauty dish saying the BD is less prone to wind problems. I can see why. I used mine on an interior portrait shoot today and the light was just what i wanted. With the diffuser or "sock" on the front the light was soft and yet still directional.There's nothing more I can say. If you have deep pockets you'll always have bragging rights when you buy the manufacturer's product. But this is a bulletproof purchase and the modifier does what it's supposed to. Can't ask for more.Shipped... 5/5 Kirk Tuck (Austin, Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    PocketWizard Remote Camera triggering problems

    The two PocketWizards Plus III I received recently seemed to work well in all modes when syncing remote flash units using a D700 or D200 Nikon cameras as masters. However, when the time came to operate the D700 remotely, problems started. It is regretable that PW is not specific about the cables or the cost of the cables required to trigger the camera. After spending $139 each for the two units, I discovered I had to invest another $85-$95 for the correct cable. To my surprise, I discover that the cable would keep the camera "awake" at all times, making it useless for long, unatended sessions due to the heavy battery drain on the Nikon D200/D700.I was able to operate the camera on any channel at the published distances but always with the camera in the "awake" state. So my next move was to order the mysterious -acc cable (another $85) to allow pre-trigger operation without depleting the camera battery. That cable didn't do the job either. I read the PW manual cover to... 4/5 Julian Angus (Florida) - See all my reviews, August 27, 2012

    It works like a CHARM

    5/5 AJ (Saudi Arabia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver Black (Electronics) I've used many wireless triggering solutions, they all just stopped working after some time and even when they were working, they weren't that reliable, they miss a lot of shots, they don't work at some locations!I didn't switch to pocket wizard plus II because I was waiting for the plus III to come out, and it was worth waiting for! It's everything they said about the plus II and much more! The new design is beautiful, the digital menu is easy to use and fast to access. I just love it!

    Information

    5/5 Second.Amendment - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver Black (Electronics) 1) You can remote trigger a camera with two of these. You will need the appropriate cable to connect the one on the hotshoe to the camera.2) You can remote trigger a camera and fire flashes at the same time. Use a channel above channel 21, set the ones on the flashes one channel higher than the ones on the "trigger" and camera.Awesome tool. These are probably the most essential part of my lighting, and they work flawlessly. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 25, 2014
