For anyone looking to get into strobe-style studio lighting but don’t know where to begin – this kit is a perfect choice.

The difference is education. This complete kit contains all the lighting products necessary to create stunning images at home or in the studio. The 2-hour long educational DVD covers everything from light setup and operation all the way to studio lighting for senior portraits, high-key, low-key and pet photography. As an added bonus, the easy-to-use custom-designed floor mat and guide card provide exact positioning points for your camera, subjects, and lights to determine a perfect 2-to-1 lighting ratio.

How the floor mat works. The floor mat is a fabric mat that can be easily laid onto any floor. On the floor mat, there are color-coded positioning points that are used for placement of the lights, camera and subjects. The guide card directs you on what to put where to create a perfect 2-to-1 lighting ratio. (This floor mat covers set ups from 1 to 4 subjects.)

 Compact design. The Strobelite pairs the highest quality engineered components with a compact and lightweight outer shell offering power, precision and portability at an affordable price.

Packed with punch. This unit is packed with punch offering 300 effective watt seconds of power.

Adjustable range. Lights can be adjusted from 1/4 to full power or anywhere in between. This broad range allows you to easily change output allowing as much (or as a little) light as you need.

Preview options. Choose to preview light patterns through the adjustable modeling lamp. This lamp can be set to adjust up and down as your power is adjusted allowing you to preview the intensity of the light falling onto your subject. There is also an additional option of keeping the modeling light on at full power regardless of adjustments or completely turned off.

Fast recycle times. Don't miss any action as recycle times run from 1 - 2.5 seconds. The higher the power, the longer the recycle time. The lower the power, the faster the recycle time.

Optical infrared cell. The long-range optical cell allows your lights to talk to one another and flash in sequence. This cell will automatically see the other lights so that all flashes are set off simultaneously. Can be used with a wireless trigger.

Included reflector. The included reflector helps direct the light forward as well as serves as a mount for accessories including barn doors and grids.

Removable power cord. This extra-long cord will make sure your light can reach nearby electrical sockets without the need for extra extension cords.

Shoot through umbrellas. The included 43" shoot-through white umbrellas set up in seconds and diffuse light while providing a wide area of light coverage.

Durable light stands. The included light stands are both durable and lightweight. They can be adjusted up to 6.5'.
