Description What Is Included Instruction Video / Manual (Click for instructions)
One of the main questions our customers ask us is, “What is the difference between continuous and strobe lighting?” Continuous lighting uses a constant light source to light the object, meaning that your lights will stay on during the entirety of your photo shoot. Continuous lighting is recommended for beginners. Strobe lighting uses a flash of light at the moment your camera shutter opens to illuminate your subject. Many professionals use this type of lighting because it offers more control of the light.

Flashes are used in photography to produces an instantaneous flash of artificial light at a color temperature of about 5500K to help illuminate a scene. The 400 watt strobe is a good mid-range strobe, good for studio work and larger scale on location shoots alike. It is high quality and easy to adjust, both in position and brightness. It can act as a slave, making this strobe easy to use in any environment.

You can not go wrong August 28, 2015
Reviewer: Patrick O'Donnell from Radcliff, KY United States  
This was not my first experience with Cowboy studio. That is way I came back. The order I placed was not in stock and they immediately contacted me to advise me of my options. I chose to order another strobe and it was here in no time. The first order was refunded in a timely manner. They are a great company to deal with. I will use them again the future

Have to say excellent thus far!!! September 17, 2012
Reviewer: Chris Allum (Foto Republik) from South River, NJ United States  
Hi recently purchased 2 of these units through Cowboy Studio on Amazon. I did extensive research over weeks and i finally decided to make the purchase. I am TOTALLY happy with my decision as these are a great bang for your buck. I can shoot on f22 1/125th shutter speed and ISO 100 and still get a decent shot!!! (MOST CASES YOU WILL NEVER NEED TO shoot at f22 it was just an example of how powerful the strobes are) So i am very happy and i couple these with the heavy duty Cowboy Sudio light stands and a Vagabond Mini(portable power) and I am a happy camper for my outdoor work as well as in studio!!! Great product!!

Wow. Horrible marketing, great product. August 30, 2012
Reviewer: Steve L from United States  
I went back and forth about if I should get these lights and now, it was all wasted time as I should have ordered 3 from the start. The recycle time is pretty good, especially on the lower settings. On lower settings (3 and below), I can't even time the gap between pressing the shutter and hearing the beep, to signal it's recharged and ready, with a stop watch.There are a bunch of features that they don't list, or highlight as well as they could to convince me to buy this strobe the first time around: Bowens mount so you can fit plenty of modifiers. You can put the protective cover on without taking out the modeling light.Built-in fan for cooling. Replaceable modeling lamp.
