This Interfit EXD400 Two Monolight Umbrella-Softbox Kit includes two 400W/s monolights with reflectors, a 36" translucent umbrella, 24" square softbox, 8' air cushioned light stands, power and sync cords.

The EXD400 has bright, easily-read digital rear control panel which indicates flash and modeling lamp power levels in 1/10 stop increments. User-friendly push button controls and switches allow the choice of audible or silent recycling as well as Proportional or Full Power modeling lamp settings. The lamp and the flash tube are conveniently user-replaceable. Fan cooling ensures that the flash capacitors and associated circuitry are at optimal working temperature even during periods of prolonged use.

The rapid 1.5 second recycling time ensures that you'll be ready to catch every fleeting gesture, a quality especially valuable in portraiture or fashion.

Versatility drives the design of the EXD400, which features wired sync, wireless IR and optical flash triggering. There is even a pre-flash setting for syncing with compact cameras.

This is a great monolight, got 8 of them for use in a studio. Love all the features included and the user-changable flash tube! Downside is that it is a little flimsy in it's construction. The actual light itself is pretty sturdy however the handles in the back were broken upon arrival. As well as the reflectors that attach which were bent. I was able to straighten out the reflectors but there's no saving the handles. The light quality it puts out however is excellent.

I am a photography student and bought these lights as a requirement for school. I was happy at first, but it didn't last long. After only a few uses, the flash tube burned out on one of the heads. I tried to find a replacement tube, but couldn't find any information on the correct one. I called Interfit and got the product code for the replacement. However, no one carried this particular flash tube, so I was stuck with a useless light. B&H has offered me store credit to return the lights, minus a restocking fee.

    Comments about Interfit EXD400 Softbox/Umbrella Kit:

    compact size, very well made, all digital with very feature you need. Lots of wattage very small heads. the price was good. I . Like the sync cord with mini plug rather than 1/4 in. would have liked option to get 2 umbrellas or 2 soft boxes instead of one of each. great carry case. the only con: the reflectors were a bit bent in the packaged box and needed to be reformed into circle so they could mount on the heads, a little work, but not a deal breaker. Just remember that if they don't fit out of the box.

    Comments about Interfit EXD400 Softbox/Umbrella Kit:

    This is a good kit as a new professional. A lot of bang for your buck on the lights -- power, ease of use and quality. All else here is stuff that you will need to upgrade or alter. The soft box and umbrella are way to small for most portraits so they are pretty useless in my opinion. Don't factor them into the value. The stands are sturdy but will become useless fast, the feet are metal tubes with hard plastic tips that will wear out fast. The metal will dent hard wood floors. You'll need to attach some rubber on them or pay your client for damaging their floors. The sad thing is that other less costly stands are better designed. I gave it four stars because it's good but you don't really get as much as you think you're getting.

        I purchased this kit for a class I was taking. With cost a big issue I think this is well worth the $[$]. Similar lights average around $250 each, and that is just for the head. Take into consideration the light stands and accessories (soft boxes and umbrella) and the cost add up quickly. This is a well rounded kit, I was surprised in the quality of the light stands and the overall quality of the lights. I have only used it a few times, but I have been happy with the results. Now I am looking forward to actually taking this class.

              I needed 2 supplement lights for portraiture, background light, etc... The lights work well and recycle fast. 400WS is all the power I need for extra lighting. The lights need to be handled with care they are not durable.

                    We photograph products with this lighting and we now have way more light than we need. However, once we use it for larger products or scenes with people, the power will be better utilized.

                    The blue panel on the back of the lights is a little flimsy but that doesn't really affect functionality.

                    The stands that come with this set are nice; they're a little bit heavier than the stands I used before.

                    People have reported that the soft box was flimsy. I guess I don't really see that. Our studio is stationary so it's not getting moved around that much.

                    The only problem I had, though minor, was the hook that connects the softbox to the power unit. This was bent and I had to bend it back to make it fit into the slot.

                              This product is great for any photographer! It was easy to set up right out of the box. I use this for all my studio photographs. My favorite feature is how much I can adjust the light intensity. Haven't found anything bad about it yet.

                                Great Carry Bag included in the kit which is not listed on the product menu. Rubberized moonlight housing help to protect the bulb from breaking out and avoiding scratches. The soft box is not that good match for this kit. Takes to long to set up and is not practical if you are using as a mobile set. This kit needs better soft box.

                                  i LOOKED HIGH AND LOW FOR A DECENT MONO LIGHT KIT AND STARTED TO GET THE EXD150 BUT I WENT FOR THE BIGGER KIT THE EXD400. I HAVE YET TO USE THE FULL POWER OF THIS KIT, AND SO FAR MY PHOTOS PUT ME INTO THE PRO LEVEL OF STUDIO PHOTOS ALL THE FEATURES THIS KIT HAS IS GREAT ESPECIALY THE PRE FLASH SETTING IS GREAT SINCE I DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO USE THE TRIGGER I HAVE. AND THEY ALSO INCLUDED A CARRYING BAG THAT I WASN"T EXPECTING! WAY TO GO INTERFIT AND BH!!!

                                    Update. Used these lights at a company's anniversary function where quality was required and after shooting over 400 shots they never misfired. They are very very powerful because i used them between 55-70watts and they lit up the clients as much as 4 persons like a Christmas tree. N.B Two photographers using 1 monolight kit each and a speedlight with reflector/shoot tru umbrella.Just remember to use a larger softbox for half or full body shots. The built in fan keep the lights as cool as a cucumber for the entire evening. (something i was worried about). They may not be made of aircraft material but it's affordable and powerful enough to get the job done.

                                    Tested one of these lights today using impact power sync 16 and it worked every time.Softbox easy to setup ,didn't need instructions.Light stand and light,easy and quick setup.Don't know why people complain about no instructions,use your common sense or go online (youtube).
                                    Will update feedback on this product after my first job with it on April 1st.
