EXD200 Kit
In reply to aVolanche, Feb 19, 2010

I recently picked up the Interfit EXD200 kit from Adorama. I'm just starting out with lighting and wanted something that would get me started and then give a little headroom to learn/expand.

The kit is really nice. 200w/s doesn't seem to be a limitation as I'm not using the flash at full power with f8. The all-digital controls and readout on the back make fine adjustment easy and clear.

The kit came with some reasonable stands, softbox and shoot-through umbrella.

One of the other requirements was that the kit could be stored easily - I wasn't planning on this being left out all day/night (wife would kill me). This kit comes with good storage (which if you ever get another light it will fit too).

Adorama had this well under $400 which gave some extra cash to look at backdrops etc.

John.
