New Toys Arrived - Ultra Light Photography ;)

Ken Tam Photography - Zhuhai Strip Box

38 x 90cm kinda stripbox with grid(umbrella style), I still love and want to bring my 30 x 140cm real strip box... but we need ultra light equipments for low budget works.

The pole of this box is reinforced with fiber pole in the curve area... seems it will not east to break in a normal fall. :D

Shutter release cable (when use the receiver alone, no need battery) and also a 2.4G long range wireless shutter release with the transfer(both feed with 2x aaa battery)... with self 3sec. photo shooting... one stone two bird is always good gear for ultra light photography ;)

You know I use wireless shutter release a lot when work solely, let see this old blog post and you will see my old wireless shutter release... that antenna make me difficult to put it back to pocket and may slow me down... lets upgrade it.

Review? No No... I normally just show the gears that I selected / after tested... never write review.

So now the SDU Ultra Light lighting kit will be included:-

  • 1 Jinbei DC-600 Pack + Battery
  • 1 standard head + cable / 1 ring flash head
  • 1 standard head + cable (with my DIY mod)
  • 1 85 umbrella type indirect octa box
  • 1 38 x 90 umbrella type indirect softbox with grid
  • 2x 6fts 4 sections light light stand
  • 2x Phottix Ares transfer
  • 1x Phottix Ares receiver
  • 1x small handheld reflector

All in a lightweight duffle roller bag.

This kit can be easy to expand to a 3 light setup by carry one more Phottix Ares receiver + Speedlite + Light stand.

Why not just use speedlites?

  • None modeling light
  • Less power
  • Slow recycle time
  • 3 set of speedlite with external battery is not that light
  • Easy over heat and stop working
  • Shit light quality
  • Inconsistency power output, except you wait long enough for them to recycle
  • ...

Why no backup?

We have 3 now 4 set DC-600, 5x DC-600 battery, 5x lightweight light stand, 4 sets Phottix Ares... when the budget allowed... we will sure bring backup :D
