Creator: Kirk Tuck | Photography - 2009-04-01

My basic studio kit for portraits is based around two Alien Bees B800 flash units (as of 2008 cost, these are $279 each) and one ... Basically, I was trying to preserve my Profoto lights and viewed the Alien Bees units as expendables.

About this book
Shattering the notion that location lighting has to be difficult, inconvenient, or compromised in its quality, this resource provides guidance on how to create unique and personalized images shot in parks, on city streets, at sports arenas, in workplaces, or in a client’s home. With an overview of equipment and a discussion on the essential tools for a shoot, this guide walks photographers through the creation of dozens of location images—from casual headshots to full-length, formally posed portraits. With strategies for meeting lighting challenges found outside of the studio—from evaluating existing light to modifying or supplementing light as needed—this book will help photographers shoot confidently by developing a plan for creating professional-quality location portraits.

    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.

    Works fine, build quality is okay for the cost

    Update 1/2014These are still working fine, although I have only used them occasionally. I recently made a modification to disconnect the "beep upon recharge" function as there was no way to disable it externally and I wanted it off for an event. If you just want to lower the volume of the beep, it's possible to put tape over the sounder which is located on the right side of the circuit board near the end with the switches. Use caution when opening any strobe as there are high voltages and can be considerable energy stored in the capacitors even when it's turned off.Original ReviewI just got these so I can't speak to longevity, but I'll try to give info on the units themselves which hasn't been covered in other reviews.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I am a commercial & editorial photographer in Colorado and just purchased this flash because my lumedynes are on their last leg and my calumet travelite 750's are getting long in the tooth. I was going to switch to AlienBee 1600's but After reading all the positive reviews and because they have a Bowens mount that should work with my travelite accessories, I decided to give these a try.

    Fantastic Value and build quality but not 400 w/s

    I was doing research on trying to find an inexpensive alternative for a strobe that we would use on a college campus in the photo dept. Budget is always a concern and I wanted an inexpensive light that would serve us for head shots, more serious environmental portraits, occasional product shoots, and whatever else comes up.I bought this after reading many reviews and some guy that blogged about it. I found the light to be everything that was advertised. I was looking at Alien Bees as an alternative but the big drawback for me on all their stuff is their build construction as it pertains to how the speed rings attach to the front of the units. You can't use a very large light bank with any WL or AB product as if it's too heavy (or windy) the bank will tear right off the front of the strobe, sometimes taking with it the flashtube and modeling light.These are built right with all metal hardware where it connects to the stand, and it uses a standard Bowens... 4/5 Patrick M.

    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.

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! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 25, 2012

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 25, 2014
