Unboxing – Godox SA-P

After six months having had the Pixapro EF-Mount Optical snoot I was really getting to know all the down sides of that piece of kit. My evaluation was that it wasn’t really suitable for my set up. I would have to get a light that would work better with it. Researching more, I discovered that…

Modifying Profoto A2

The Profoto Clic OCF Adapter II is now shipping for the A series lights. And as usual it is the high Profoto price of about £260 including VAT. If you add shipping to that, it isn’t cheap. As I have a B10 that I can use the OCF modifiers with, I’m now not sure if…

Rotolight NEO 3 PRO

Rotolight have launched an Indiegogo for their NEO 3 PRO and AEOS 2 PRO lights. From what I can tell, this version of the light there are minor bumps in specification. The light output has been boosted and it can be used with more remotes in flash mode. It is able to work with Godox,…

Pixapro EF-Mount Optical snoot

I’ve realised that in my unboxing of the Pixapro EF-Mount Optical snoot I wasn’t getting the optimum amount of light out from the Profoto units. In my original testing I was hanging the optical snoot very close to the front of the light. As you can see there is quite a lot of space when…

Profoto colour accuracy

I was looking back at my tests of the Profoto lights and realised that the B10 Plus, B10 and A2 gave out different colour temperatures from each other. Here is a reminder of the readings. A25698K664 lxB105976K1430 lxB10 Plus6004K2800 lx Which made me wonder if they would look different from one another if used together.…

Battery power

Speaking of batteries, it is amazing how they have changed over the years. From left to right is a power bank from around the year 2000 to a V Mount battery purchased this year. The V Mount battery has USB C, so in theory can charge one of the latest Apple MacBook. I don’t have…

HEDBOX RP-DC50

Smart chargers aren’t always that smart. I purchased a Hedbox RP-DC50 for my NPF batteries and thought that instead of having the same type of battery in both slots I would get a plate for my Nikon D850 batteries. Putting one of the D850 batteries in the charger and leaving it for a bit, I…

Practice makes perfect

I wish I had got one of these in early 2020 rather than now in August 2022 to practice my lighting techniques with. Obviously it isn’t exactly like the real thing but having something to try out the theory on without having to worry about their reaction is a good way to hone my skills.

Phone app for lights

There is a trend for new lighting equipment to have the ability for them to be controlled via your phone. To be able to control your lights standing next to your camera rather than having to physically access your lights, especially if you have taken time to position the light at a precise angle is…

High end gear

I was watching this YouTube video by MarkusPix and it made me question my current obsession with high end equipment. If you scroll through the articles on here it is all about the top end expensive kit and very little about the entry level products that my wallet would appreciate. First of all I have…
