Photographing interiors can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to balancing the available ambient lighting along with artificial strobe lighting to produce pleasing-natural looking results.
The PIXAPRO PIKA200 PRO Portable flash kit includes everything you will need to get going with your photography. The compact but powerful 200Ws flash includes a TTL feature to allow for automatic exposure metering to make for easy setup without having to adjust your settings. The sturdy light stand has a air cushioned feature which means it can be lowered safely and it has a large footprint to give a stable secure mount for your lights. It also comes with a 90cm umbrella softbox, this has been design to make setting up your softbox much easier with a simple click and go mechanism. The softbox also comes with a diffuser and grid to offer even more control with your lighting, allowing you to diffuse and/or restrict the light. The smart bracket included mounts the PIKA200 flash and has a Bowens S-Type fitting on the front to mount your softbox. This kit is perfect for using on location or in studio, due to the compact size and easy setup it makes shooting much easier.
Power – At 200Ws of power controllable from 1/256th power which means you can go as low as 1W for many possibilities.
Flash Duration – It offers an impressive flash duration of up to 1/13000s giving a sharper image, great for capturing movement or motion
Recycle Times – At just 0.01-2.1s you will not need to worry about a long wait in between shots to ensure shots are not missed
HSS – Overpower the sun with HSS to make shooting outdoors not an issue, reducing ambient light and getting the shot you want.
TTL – Get the correct exposure automatically to make worrying about settings not an issue, ideal for those shooting in changing conditions
Battery Capacity – the 2900mAh rechargeable battery will give approximately 500 full-powered flashes, to get you through almost any shoots without having to constantly change the batteries
Backing Material- The 90cm umbrella softbox features a highly reflective interior lining, which enables the light to bounce around easily, for maximum light efficiency. It has black exterior material to prevent light leakage.
Two Layers of Diffusion- The 90cm umbrella softbox features two layers of diffusion, made from high-grade nylon, with a special fine grid design for durability. The diffusers are “Discolouration Free”, which means that you do not have to worry about the softbox affecting the colour temperature of your lighting. The diffusers can either be used one at a time or together, giving you full control of the specularity of your light.
4cm honeycomb grid- The softbox also includes a removable honeycomb grid to better control light spill. The honeycomb grid, also called egg crate, will result in a narrower spread of light which can be positioned directly onto the subject without light spilling on the background.
Build quality-The 90cm umbrella softbox is made from durable high-quality rods, inserted into hardwearing nylon material which ensures that it is up to the job of enduring professional use in the field.
Octagonal Shape- The 90cm umbrella softbox produces pleasing round catchlights in the eyes of your subject, to emulate natural light sources such as the Sun. Especially desirable for portraits and commercial photography, as well as being useful for a fill or key light.
Min & Max Height – with a minimum height of 79cm and a maximum of 240cm, it gives a lot of flexibility to your lighting
Footprint Diameter – the large footprint diameter of 92cm, giving you a stable stand for your equipment and maximum stability.
Safety Mechanism - The stand also has a unique air cushioned dampening system which prevents sudden drops to minimise the risk of damaging your equipment or causing injury to yourself.
The PIXAPRO SMART Speedlite Adapter Bracket enables you to use small flashes such as Speedlites and Bare-Bulb Flashes in conjunction with your S-Type fitting modifiers such as Softboxes, Beauty Dishes and Snoots etc. The SMART Bracket also enables you to easily mount your PIKA200PRO to a standard light stand.

The 200Ws battery-powered flashes are suitable for studio use or outdoors and with features like HSS and TTL making using them on location just as easy.

Including two foldable stands to provide a stable platform to mount your lights and all able to be packed away in the included Roller Case for easy transport.
