This Angler Ultimate Portrait Kit was put together by B&H to provide photographers with a portable studio of gear that renders a beautiful quality of light. The kit includes 2 Angler Q400 400Ws Monolights each with a flashtube, 150W modeling light, grid reflector, and 10' light stand. Included modifiers are a 7' Parabolic Umbrella, a 20" Beauty Reflector with Adapter, and 18" Silverbox Octa Softbox with a speedring and a fabric grid.

Q400 Monolight

When describing the 400Ws Angler Q400 Monolight the operative word is speed. The light is designed so you'll never miss a shot while waiting for it to recycle. Recycling time is a fast 0.4 seconds at full power, flash duration is an impressive 1/5000 of a second, and continuous shooting speed can reach a rapid-fire 10 frames per second. This strong emphasis on speed makes the Q400 a smart choice for fashion and event shooting, and since it's fast enough to capture almost any movement at its peak, it's ideal for high-speed photography. You can even bring the Q400 on location, powering it from a generator or inverter if there's no AC power available.

Easy might be the next way to describe the Q400. Adjustments are easily made on the light's back panel, which incorporates a carry handle. Soft push buttons control the modeling light, ready beep, and optical slave on/off function. The slave allows you set Instant-Fire or Skip Pre-flash modes and trigger the flash head at distances up to 33'. You can also hard wire the Q400 to your camera via the included 1/4" phono sync cord, or easier still, use an optional wireless radio system such as Impact's ControlSync 16 to trigger the flash from up to 150' away and remotely control its power, modeling light, and audible alert.

The Q400's power level, which is adjustable in 1/10 stops over a 6-stop range, is displayed on an easy-to-read LCD screen. Both power and modeling lamp intensity are adjustable via simple knobs. The 150W modeling light dims when the flash is triggered while a switchable beep indicates full recycling.

7' Parabolic Umbrella

This parabolic umbrella is a huge, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella, there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. Put another way, if you combined a beauty dish with a softbox, you'd have a parabolic umbrella.

This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is reinforced for strength, and instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass. The fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the back of the umbrella.

18" Silverbox Softbox

This extra-small softbox allows photographers to place it where larger softboxes can't go, for small object photography or for hair or accent lighting in fashion and portraiture. Its deep design gives the Silverbox longer, more directional throw than shallower softboxes of this size while retaining wrap-around light qualities and rendering natural-looking catchlights in the subject's eyes. The softbox features a textured silver interior for maximum output and a removable front diffuser. Removing it converts the softbox into a deep, long throw reflector with high brightness and contrast.

Beauty Reflector
The 20" Beauty Reflector from Angler gets its name from the popularity of this light shaper with fashion and portrait photographers.Recommended for strobes, the light source is bounced off of a centrally positioned deflector and directed to fill the neutral white reflector interior. The result is a signature soft dispersed look, but with crispness, ideal for hair and makeup, that you can't get from umbrellas and softboxes. An added feature is the natural-looking catchlights that appear in the subject's eyes. Optional accessories include a honeycomb grid to tunnel and direct the light output and a diffusion sock to soften it.

10' Air-Cushioned Light Stand

Made of aluminum, this stand extends to 10' and has four sections with sure-twist section locks. If you forget to tighten any section with your light mounted, the light slowly descends, thanks to the stand's air-cushioning. This useful feature saves equipment and fingers from harm during busy photo sessions.

    A handy feature of the Q400 is the adjustable mounting bracket that allows you to find the center of gravity for better balance when using heavy front accessories such as large softboxes. A built-in receiver can support umbrella shafts up to 8mm and umbrellas up to 7' in diameter. The speedring/reflector mount is Bowens S-Type, giving you a wide range of choices, not only from Angler but from the many manufacturers who have standardized on this mount. Angler includes a reflector that accepts 7" grids.

    Benefits and Attributes

  • Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (84" - White/Black)

    If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (Black/White).

    First of all it's a really huge, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. Put another way, if you combined a beauty dish with a softbox, you'd have a parabolic umbrella.

    This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is reinforced for strength and instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass. The fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the umbrella. You can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer look or for longer throw capability. With the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella less is definitely more.

    Measures 7' (2.1 m) in diameter
    Constructed using 16 durable fiberglass ribs
    Reinforced shaft has the perfect strength-to-weight ratio
    Carry case with shoulder strap is lightweight and durable

  • Angler Silverbox Softbox (18")

    The 18" Angler 7262-S-18 Silverbox Octagonal Softbox is a highly versatile light-shaping tool designed for use with for strobes, LEDs, and fluorescent lights.

    This extra-small softbox allows photographers to place it where larger softboxes can't go for small object photography or for hair or accent lighting in fashion and portraiture. Its deep design gives the Silverbox longer, more directional throw than shallower softboxes of this size while retaining wrap-around light qualities and rendering natural-looking catchlights in the subject's eyes. The softbox features a textured silver interior for maximum output and a removable front diffuser. Removing it converts the softbox into a deep, long throw reflector with high brightness and contrast.

    The octagonal Silverbox has an additional control via a fabric grid (available separately) which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid narrows and concentrates the light's beam forward, controlling spill light and adding directional control to the Silverbox's attributes. Every Silverbox comes with a carrying case. Separate purchase of a speedring that matches your strobe's mount is required for use.

  • Angler Speed Ring for Bowens S, Impact, & Westcott

    Easily mount a Whitebox or Silverbox series softbox to a Bowens S, Impact, or Westcott strobe with this Speed Ring from Angler. Besides simply attaching the modifier, this aluminum ring has an outer rotating ring the enables the softbox to be rotated 360 degrees, which works with the self-locking feature to allow it to be quickly set up in any orientation that you need. Simplifying matters more are the indexed flex rod holes that visibly show you where to insert certain rods for compatibility with different types of softboxes. In addition to these capabilities, the outer rotating ring offers two 3/8"-16 female threaded receptors for using the speed ring on other products, such as a tripod or light stand.
