28 Accessories Gear SpotliGht Another great accessory from Gary Fong, the lightsphere is a collapsible diffuser that fits most flash heads with a swivel head. The Lightsphere collapses down to a 1 1⁄2 inch thick ring allowing for easy storage. It provides the shooter with a wonderful 360 degree diffused light as it bounces light up, down and around as well as directly upon your subject. The Inverted Dome is included with ever y Lightsphere Collapsible and can be mounted right-side up or upside-down. Gary FonG liGhtSphere collapSible If you’re planning on setting up your own home studio then it’s inevitable that at some point you will want to invest in a lighting kit. The Premier Triple Head Studio Flash Unit makes for the perfect studio lighting kit. Armed with powerful 300 watt heads, this lighting set up is ideal for portraits, group shots or product shoots. The kit includes: three premier 300 watt flash heads, three LS-2000 lighting stands, two premier umbrellas, a 60x60cm softbox, an infrared trigger and receiver set. Plus a large carry case should you ever want to pack up your kit and take it on a shoot. If you like to get creative with your shots, then a pen tablet is an essential editing tool. The Intuos4 by tablet legends, WACOM, is compatible with your PC or MAC and allows for Bluetooth connectivity so you don’t have to remain chained to your desk. The pen’s pressure sensitive eraser tip (over 2000 variations) and pen nib are perfect for use in photography, industrial design and CGI animation. Customisable sides switches can be set to your most commonly used function and you can expand your tablet’s capabilities with a number of accessories including airbrush pens, 5 button mouse and more. The tablet’s express keys allow for enhanced productivity and radial menus improve workflow. This entry level system in the Elinchrom range is ideal for the semi-pro shooter that wants to take their photography to the next level. It’s also upgradeable if you want to add more pro equipment to your kit at a later date. Perfect for shooting portraiture, the kit features two D-Lite IT 4 (400 ws) and two Portalite softboxes (66x66 cm). In addition each kit contains one EL- Skyport ECO Transmitter, to trigger flashes without cable. Oh and the ‘it’ stands for Intelligent Triggering! The plug in omega flashtube allows for even illumination. The EL-Skyport (ELS) Transmitter ECO is also part of every D-Lite IT Kit. A new speed sync mode allows for fast synchronisation at up to 1/250 second. premier triple head Studio FlaSh unit Wacom intuoS4 elinchrom d-lite 4 Studio FlaSh unit 027_Bpics6_ACCESSORIES.indd 28 29/08/11 3:23 PM
