The PiXAPRO LUMI II 400 Single-Light Food Photography Kit is an affordable solution for people who want to get started in the world of food photography using studio strobes. This kit enables you to produce high-quality food photography with a very natural look, ideal for use on cookery websites, cookbooks and in food magazines etc. This kit combines a large 120cm softbox and a 60cm 5in1 reflector to create endless possibilities of light styling for your images.
Powerful Studio Strobe - The LUMI II 400 is a 400Ws studio strobe flash, which gives you a lot more flexibility compared to continuous lighting since flash-exposure is not affected by shutter speed. Therefore, you can use your camera’s shutter speed to control the amount of ambient light entering your scene, which is not possible with continuous light sources.
User-Friendly Interface - The LUMI II 400 features a large bright LCD display, with simple, intuitive controls, to enable you to adjust settings such as the power, groups or channels easily with the push of a button, or a turn of a dial.
Power Range – With its 400Ws of power, this flash will produce a bright burst of light, suitable for almost any situation. The power can be reduced to just 1/32 (12.5Ws) in increments of 1/10th of a stop, Ideal for times when you only need a touch of light to illuminate your subject.
Recycle Times - The LUMI II 400 has fast recycling-times at just over one second, which allows you to take shots more frequently without having to wait around for your flash to recharge.
The ONE system - The LUMI II 400 features a built-in receiver compatible with The PIXAPRO ONE System. This enables you to mix-and-match any flash from the PIXAPRO range, from Speedlites, up to high-powered battery-powered strobes. The PIAXPRO ONE flash system is compatible with popular camera brands from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji, and Pentax
Intelligent slave cell - The LUMI II 400 features two optical slave modes. S1 (Standard Slave mode) will tell the flash to fire when it sees the flash from another strove. S2 (Intelligent Slave mode) ignores the Pre-Flash usually produced by TTL strobes, which enables the LUMI to be used alongside TTL speed lights or any other TTL strobe.
Automatic temperature-controlled ventilation- To ensure it is safe and protected when shooting frequently, the cooling fan will kick in to protect the flash when running at high temperatures.
S-Type Fitting – The LUMI II 400 uses the popular Bowens S-Type Bayonet mount, making it compatible with a wide range of S-Type modifiers, including, softboxes beauty dishes, snoots, and silver reflector dishes etc.
Large 120cm Diameter – Due to its large 120cm diameter, this softbox produces soft, natural-looking lighting, ideal for producing amazing looking images.
Octagonal Shape – Octagonal softboxes produce soft-wrapping lighting, and produce more pleasing circular specular highlights when photographing glossy foods such as berries etc.
Two layers of Diffusion - the softboxes two layers of diffusion creates more even coverage compared to a single layer of diffusion. This in return reduces hot spots in your photos.
Interchangeable Fitting - This softbox comes supplied with an S-Type fitting, however, the fitting can be used with a variety of other flash brands with its unique interchangeable ring.
Five Looks with one reflector - The 5-in-1 reflector comes with covers that simply go over the reflector to give more options, these come in black, gold, silver, white and translucent white. Each of which has different effects, to help modify your lighting how you see fit.
BLACK - Absorbs light to prevent any stray bounced light from falling onto the subject. Perfect for increasing contrast when shooting dramatic black and white portraits.
GOLD - Golden coating for fine, warm light characteristic with a light colour like the setting sun.
SILVER - Increases specular highlights and pro. Silver is great for accentuating detail and gives off the brightest reflection.
TRANSLUCENT - Can be used either as a reflector to bounce light back at your subject or can be used as a diffuser to soften the effects of harsh light. Ideal for when you are shooting out in the midday sun.
WHITE - Produces subtle, more natural diffused light. Ideal for when you need to keep the colour temperature of the reflected light consistent with that of your ambient/main light.
