Photo Lighting

  1. Canon Speedlite 380EX


    speedlight

    This Canon Speedlite 380EX flash works with all Canon EOS cameras.  It supports E-TTL, high speed sync, and six automatic zoom positions. It can also be set to second-curtain sync, if your camera supports it. It has a guide number of 38. It weighs just under 10 ounces, making it a great portable flash.

    While after-market flashes often work very well on Canon cameras, most don’t support advanced features. This speedlight is the most affordable way to get high speed sync and second curtain sync in a camera-mounted flash.

    We include 4 rechargeable AA batteries and a mounting shoe with each speedlite rental.

  2. Einstein E640 Flash Unit


    einstein-flash

    The Paul C Buff Einstein is probably the most popular studio flash in use today.  With 640 watt-seconds of power and a 9-stop range, this flash unit can do it all.  Maximum recycle time is 1.7 seconds. The digital display on the back makes it easy to read all your settings in an instant. The Einstein also includes a built-in slave sensor for optical firing with your other flashes.

    When used with modifiers, one or two of these is often all you need for large group shots.

    We send ours out with the standard reflector, 15′ cable, heavy-duty stand, and an AC cable.  A softbox and umbrellas are available.

  3. PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver


    pocketwizard-plus-iii

    The PocketWizard Plus III is a remote flash trigger system with 32 channels, four zones, and up to 1600 feet of range.  These wireless flash triggers can also trigger your camera remotely, and will work with any other PocketWizard system.

    The PocketWizard family of products will work with Canon, Nikon, and most other common camera and flash types, but you may need a specific cable. Be sure to confirm you’ll have the right cable for your particular camera and flash configuration. We have a lot of cables and adapters available for rent in our shop and can connect almost anything, if you bring your camera and flashes with you when you pick up. We want to help you go over your setup and be sure you have everything you need. Like most PocketWizard units, the Plus III doesn’t support TTL.

    Two AA batteries are required with each PocketWizard unit. We rent the PocketWizard units individually. Of course, you’ll need two or more to transmit and receive.
