The Photoflex SB-SF650W StarFlash 650 Watt/Second Monolight is suitable for the professional, as well as the aspiring photographer. The StarFlash uses a high-quality German flash tube. The modeling light can be set at full brightness or proportional to the flash tube light output.

This strobe can be used with a reflector, umbrella, or softbox. The included Tilt Swivel Mount is secure and allows for tilt range of 170°. The Tilt Swivel can be repositioned on the StarFlash to compensate for weight imbalance when using larger soft boxes. This monolight can be fired with the included mono to PC sync cord or via its optical slave from another flash.

      Good light, I wish built-in wireless slave, but ther wasn't one. Only optical and infrared slaves. Very good price.
