New Reflecta VisiLux StudioKit 130
Kenro, the UK and Ireland distributor of Reflecta Imaging and AV products has announced a new entry-level two-head lighting kit for photographers. The Reflecta VisiLux StudioKit 130 is aimed at those wishing to set up a low-cost home studio or for taking portraits on location.
The Reflecta Kit comprises 2 x 130Ws flash heads, 2 x lighting stands, 2 x 92cm Octagonal Softboxes, 2 x sync cables and a carry bag.
Simple to operate, the VisiLux 130 Flash Heads have a stepless output adjustment of 1/1 to 1/32, giving variable brightness for digital or film photography, for lighting the subject or the background.
The Octagonal Softboxes are particularly suited to portrait photography, giving a soft, even illumination to faces. Recycle time is between half to 3 seconds and each light comes with a very useful modeling lamp (max 50W) so you can see the effect of the light before taking the picture.
Colour temperature of the flash is daylight 5500K +/- 200K and synchro voltage is 5V. The trigger methods are: sync cable, sensor, test button and remote control.
Each flash head weighs just 0.8kg and maximum light stand height is 190cm. Weight of the total kit in its carry bag is just 6kg.
Says Paul Kench, Kenro's managing director: "The compact size and low weight of this kit will particularly suit those starting out in portrait photography where the photographer visits the customers' home. It is powerful enough to allow the shooting of babies, pets, children and small groups and it has an extremely attractive price point."
SRP is £227.94 including VAT.
