Interfit Honey Badger overview

  • 1Description

Name after a small ferocious animal with a deceptively wholesome name, the Honey Badger 320Ws Compact Flash Head from Interfit has a space-efficient 5 x 5 x 6" form factor, weighs just 3 lb, and contains some impressive features. The light boasts a 7-stop flash power range that can be adjusted in 1/10 stop increments and a 60W LED modeling lamp that is the equivalent of 300 tungsten watts and can be used manually or set to output proportionate to the flash intensity. The modeling lamp has a 5600K color temperature and is flicker-free for use as a video light. Recycle time is a fast 1 second at full power and a fraction of that at lower power. Flash durations are correspondingly short - as quick as 1/900 second (t.1) for freezing action at peak moments.

The Honey Badger has a built-in wireless receiver that accepts signals from a separately purchased S1 manual or TTL transmitters that can not only wirelessly trigger the flash, but control power level, modeling light, and the beep indicator for full recycling. The light has a Bowens S-Type front accessory mount making it compatible with the many manufacturers that produce products with this mount. The Honey Badger also has a built-in pop-up softbox ring that makes for very fast setup with the included 24 x 24" softbox. Lightweight with a small form factor and impressive performance, the Honey Badger is hard to beat.

Compact Form Factor
Size and weight matter to the mobile photographer. The Honey Badger weighs just 3 lb, measures 5" wide (6" including the outer ring), and 6" deep from the back panel to the edge of the protective cap. The robust and compact housing makes the Honey Badger the ideal solution for photographers on the move.
Extended Power Range
The Honey Badger has an impressive 7-stop power range, two more stops than many studio flash heads. Power can be adjusted from 320Ws down to 5Ws in 1/10th stop increments for precise exposure.
Fast Recycle Time
At full power, the Honey Badger recycles in just 1 second. Recycle times get even shorter as you decrease flash power.
Short Flash Duration
Short flash durations give you the ability to freeze motion beyond the capabilities of the shutter sync speed. At full power, the Honey Badger has a t.1 flash duration of 1/900.
60W LED Modeling Lamp
The Honey Badger is equipped with a 60W LED modeling lamp with the equivalent light output of a 300W tungsten lamp. This flicker-free LED can be used as a continuous light source for both photo and video purposes. The modeling lamp can be set to adjust proportionately to the flash power, or to full power. The color temperature was intentionally set to 5600K (daylight), to accurately portray the color rendition of the flash's output.
Versatile Modifier Mount
A convenient feature of the Honey Badger is the versatile modifier mount. The Honey Badger utilizes the popular Bowens S-Type modifier mount, making it compatible with the same modifiers as the S1. The Honey Badger also features a built-in pop-up softbox ring for use with pop-up style softboxes that are popular with speedlight shooters.
Included Pop-Up Softbox
Every Honey Badger includes a 24x24" pop-up softbox with an inner and outer diffuser. This style of softbox does not require an elaborate setup and folds away quickly and compactly.
Glass Dome Diffuser
The Honey Badger includes a frosted glass dome diffuser. This protects the flash tube and helps to spread light evenly throughout the modifier.

    Interfit Honey Badger reviews

    Honey Badger 320Ws Compact Flash Head is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I received the Honey Badger as a gift and I just absolutely love it. It is compact, cool looking, powerful and recycles really fast. I also like the fact that it has a Bowens mount because I own a lot of Bowens mount type modifiers. I do both Video and Photography, and was psyched when I saw that it had a really powerful LED modeling lamp. It also has a built in trigger that lets me control all the functions remotely. I def recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Uniquely Pro Quality light in a light weight affordable comp I Just received mine and have not yet used it on a real shoot but have played around with it and so far can observe the following: -The frosted dome over the flash tube brings the quality of light in the realm of a Profoto or Speedatron bare bulb. I have always found these frosted domes are the single most effective way to improve the quality of a flash tube and enhances the light with just about any type of modifier mostly by reducing hot spots. In this case the tube assembly is partly recessed into the unit but the actual flash tube sticks out just past the recess sending light in all directions. This is a bit of a compromise in that the light quality would be a little better if the dome was completely exposed but it would also be a lot more vulnerable to damage. - Modeling light is clean, bright, powerful and can be used on full or match the flash power. The design of the LED suggests that it creates more of a hot spot than the actual flash tube will. - Interface is simple, each button has its own function The beep is louder than most (but can be disabled). The fan is average loud. - The mounting bracket umbrella shaft socket unfortunately has two design flaws: It is not angled to point the flash tube towards the center of the umbrella AND the self tightening push through system actually allows the umbrella to drop/tilt even further away from how it should be angled. The flash tube ends up being pointed more than half way between the center and the upper edge of the umbrella. This is useable but not ideal and I will no doubt attempt some sort of modification to the bracket or the way it is mounted to the head. This is a shame especially that I have just switched over from softboxes to parabolic umbrellas! But the bottom line is that they thought about the light quality emitted by the tube above everything else which I value a lot more than trendy features like TTL, compatible trigger systems, battery capability, flash duration etc which have been making strobes more expensive and complicated to use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light, especially for the price! I ordered these as my first studio lights, and I am not disappointed, thus far. I've packed these up and brought them to on location shoots, and its been awesome! I ordered two, and have been thinking about ordering two more, they are seriously that good. I only had one missed flash, and that was my fault for shooting beyond the unit's capability. It would be five stars, but the two problems I encountered were the pop-up softbox is an absolute pain to use. Its stiff, and I had a hard time just fixing it to the unit. The cloth that goes over the unit to soften the light barely fits, and I had a hard time getting proper coverage, and then the thing is so stiff that when I was tearing down the shoot, it popped open and actually cut me! I ended up bleeding all over the fabric. It was pretty embarrassing. The second issue was these things have too much power on their lowest setting! Funny, I know, in this world where we wont the best, highest power, but if you have a smaller work area, it will be a pain balancing your lights. I receiver two of the radio triggers, because of the buy a flash, get a trigger for free promo. They work amazing. I share the extra one with photographers who are on set with me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honey Badger I have two of these and the S1.� This one was on sale $50 off.� I had to have it (since I'm addicted to B&H.� My first one was used (rare and hard to find) and much cheaper than list price.� �The size is great.� Wish it had a battery like the S1, but that would add cost and weight.� It is not made as high quality as the S1 but it does have a great modeling light. The S1 has a very poor modeling light.� You can just about shoot head shots with the modeling light as long as you get in tight with a wide open aperture 50mm F1.4 lens or somthing similar.� Also, these things are fairly easy to store.� I keep my S1 in� good size pelican case.� I keep two of these� a somewhat larger PortaBrace case.� I'd recommend a good hard case regardless of how you use these strobes.� For the size and power, I'm not sure anything compares other than the digibee, but the Honey Badger is much cheaper given the features and the soft box that comes with it. I bought Godix grids for both my softboxes� -- works like a charm. Could not fine where Interfit sells the grids.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good first light This is my first monolight and was recommended to me by a photography instructor. It is easy to use and I like the results. I also have the manual remote (got it for 1/2 price) and it works well with the Honey Badger and is convenient, especially if the light is very high up.� The included softbox is small so I use the Honey Badger with a large EzyBox II.� My next light will be a battery powered HSS monolight that I can easily use outside, but for now, this satisfies my needs, (along with my speedlites).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than advertised I've been using my new Honey Badger for only a few days. I was super surprised that my first test shot using my old lens came out terrific. Now that I have taken a hundred photos, I have learned how to get better shots by moving the honey badger away from the subject and up higher than I can reach. By the way, I photograph a difficult subject. Jewelry using a Macro Lens. I would put the Honey Badger up against anything at 3 times the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from stopped working after 6mo. I loved these lights, the price was right for what I got. But I heard crackling noise within 3months and then it blew out with a pop after six. I dont use strobes a lot. so it had very little use

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No HSS... No Battery Power... but great for price. If you can live without high speed synch and just need a great in-studio light, this one is a winner. I use it along with my S1. Works well as a main light or secondary light.
