Portable and lightweight

Just unpacked it and it has a nice durable bag, so you can carry your kit anywhere.! Knobs are a mix of metal and plastic, and sometimes it feels like too much pressure will crank it up.! I would prefer more weight in a the stands to use them in exterior, also a Sand Bag would be necessary if you are planning to use it at Max Height

Compact and lightweight

By Canon Fodder

from Wichita Falls, TX

Comments about SP Studio Systems Off-Camera Flash Accessory Kit:

You can't beat the value for the price. These are not heavy duty, nor does the manufacture claim them to be so for portable studio work they do the job. Very pleased and will be taking them with me to shoot some volunteer portraits next month and anticipate zero problems.

    I was wanting to use this product for my wedding photography that is just starting. Just starting out, everything was a little smaller than I was expecting but the product itself works great.

      Comments about SP Studio Systems Off-Camera Flash Accessory Kit:

      Stands and umbrellas are of good quality and great for indoor and light outdoor use if conditions are right. The supplied bag is bigger than i thought and has space to hold another stand and umbrella if needed. My only con is the generic shoe mounts that came with the bracket, but can easily be fixed with a adjustable shoe mount.

          A great starter kit. All components are of fine quality and easy to use. Get a great set up for simple portraits or table top still lifes without breaking the bank.
          The 32" white umbrellas are also great for outdoor "Thru lighting" of plants/flowers and small scenes.
          The advantage this kit has over the Impact Kit is that the carrying case is included. It's a goor quality case that will easily hold the two complete umbrella set-ups, and has posckets for extras (i,e, gaffers tape, spare couplers, small tools, etc,).
          Start here, then build your own!

            Du to the head that comes with it
            Other then that I have gotten

                    This kit was definitely something to invest in but the 32" umbrellas are quite small in radius in my opinion. Comes with a bag which is handy. I recommend that you pick up a bigger umbrella for better lighting coverage.

                      Use this for occasional studio light without having to spring for strobes. Miss a modelling light, but one can't have everything. Seems to be well built and sturdy.
