Re: Recommended home studio kit?

You and have both if your studio space is small.

Buy a Canon EX580 II, or the the functionally equivalent and cheaper but not quite so rugged Nissin Di866, and a Canon EX430 II, or the functionally equivalent and cheaper but not quite so rugged Nissin Di622 Mark II.

That way you will have one high powered flash that can act as a Canon system wireless master and one lower powered flash that can only act as a wireless slave.

Alternatively you can get a couple of flash units like the Vivitar DF-293 Bounce Zoom Swivel Flash for Canon and an inexpensive RF trigger set. You will have to manually adjust the power and zoom length with these flash units, but they are pretty cheap.

Mate your two flashes with one of these kits.

You will have a flexible and portable studio kit as well as a couple of flash units you can use on your camera if you want.
