I was showing a friend of mine the Sunpak 4000's that i have. These are pretty heavy and bulky monolights. Add that to the Chinese softboxes that take forever to setup and its really a PITA kit to setup. i'd like a setup that is more portable and easier to setup. My friend uses a Nikon d40, I have a N80 and F100 (among others). I was thinking a set of Vivitar 285's on brackets with reflective umbrellas would do the trick. Does anyone uses these for studio lighting? How are the cheap radio or ir sync's?
