Comments about Norman 400 W/S Portable Battery Assembly Kit:

These work great for outdoors and weddings. The battery is a little heavy but the lamp makes up for it because it is so light and compact. The batteries charge in about 2 hours and you are ready to go. I use these as an extra light when shooting large groups, or formal portraits. The quality of the light is so much better than regular speed lights. There are no complicated bells and whistles and computer generated aids to help you light a subject so you need to know your guide numbers and F-stops. This is old-school lighting not ETTL or Automatic features. However, you can get a small sticker to tape on your flash head that gives you the range based on aperture/ISO and distance from Norman, or make one yourself. I have other portable flash units but this is as close as you can get to Studio lighting hands down.

      We use it primarily for sports photos indoor and outdoor. We like the simplicity of the it. Have tried other flashes and batteries and they are much more complicated.
