Eight Crazy Lighting Deals

Eight Crazy Lighting Deals

If you're trying to add to your lighting kit or get started with lighting for the first time, these are the deals for you.

For the next few weeks, B&H has a bunch of incredible deals on lighting. Personally, I'm eyeing that Elinchrom ELB 500 kit. I've been wanting to check one of those out for some time now. It will fit in nicely with my aging Quadra and Digital RX kits. Though, if you're just starting out, I'd check out the Interfit HoneyBadger or Interfit S1 (battery-powered Profoto B1 alternative). Both are really great lights and more than enough for most users looking to learn the ropes. They sport a Bowens style mount, which seems to be everywhere these days. This means you can find an abundance of affordable accessories. 

Additionally, if you're looking for the top of the line, the Broncolor Para 133 is over $800 off! Seriously good deals here people! Don't forget to use the Promo code "LIGHT." If you don't use it, you'll have to settle for an ordinary good deal as opposed to an extraordinary one.

Hey guys, I’m looking for some lights.

Here is my criteria; they must be made or assembled in America, they must be serviceable, they must have a super fast flash duration, they must be over 600 watt seconds, they must be under $500.00, they must have a digital remote control that incorporates a light meter, the remote control must cost under $200.00, they must have constant color that can only vary 50 degrees kelvin, and they must be adjustable in nine stop increments at a tenth of a stop.
Anyone know of the lights that would fit my needs?

Do you work for Paul C. Buff, Inc or something?

William Howell's picture

No I don’t work for them, but I do love them!

Hey I just looked at your profile, you do nice work and I see you use the Einstein also. What do you think of them?

Felix Wu's picture

They must not not be Einstein.

I was previously PCB for some 5 odd years until I recently just switched to the Orlit Rovelight RT 610. They're from Adorama and are quite impressive. They're battery powered (cordless is a big win for me), have 600ws for power, are capable of high speed sync, and have consistent color. You can dial in power to the 10th of a stop like you're looking for. I will say this... they aren't Profotos but they certainly are an upgrade from PCB.

They retail for $700 per head but they often run specials like they are currently - you can pick them up for $420 w/ a receiver.

I must say, right now there is a sale going on at Adorama, where these lights that you mentioned, are on sale for three hundred dollars a piece. If these lights or lights similar to these specifications continue to go down in price, let’s say they dip below $200.00, then they have become a commodity.
And of course I will stop buying my beloved American made/assembled studio strobe mono blocks.
The only thing that would stop me from buying these $200.00 imported lights is if the color consistency isn’t there. Right now, the specs say -/+200 degrees, i don’t know if that’s good enough, but still though, a 500ws two hundred dollar light...

I don't know if it's public or not but Adorama has a 48-hour sale on lighting products including several eVOLV 200 (Godox AD200) deals from $139.00 to just under $300 off.

Just took a look, nothing special. The AD200 is normally $299, they just take a few dollars of accessories but not much.

Really? AD200, barndoor kit, softbox w/grid, Bowens bracket, silicone skin (don't know what that is) for $289.95?? Not fantastic but as good a deal (not commenting on the products) as those above.

I got that exact kit on Black Friday for $228, minus the bracket (only $20 at B&H). I also got the silicone skin even though I didn't order it - it's a rubber skin (a really ugly powder blue) that goes over the flash, but I would imagine it would make it more difficult to pull out of your bag, especially with two of them.

I kinda figured that was what the skin was but wasn't sure. Maybe it'd protect from bumps and drops...maybe not. :-/

Not sure where you saw this deal. I saw this one:
https://www.adorama.com/fplfev200z.html

It's the same as what I saw last night.

It was listed as being for specific people. I was going to post a link but it contained my email information!? Maybe because I buy stuff from them every so often.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Motti Bembaron's picture

Ah, could be. In Canada we had a special of around $260 USD for the AD200 so $228 would have been great.
