Reviews for PIXAPRO® LUMI 400 II 800Ws Twin Kit with Trigger (400/400) (GS400II)

PIXAPRO® LUMI 400 II 800Ws Twin Kit with Trigger (400/400) (GS400II)

Purchased this strobe about 2-3 weeks ago and wanted to put this product to the test before I wrote my review. So far so good. I'd recommend mounting this strobe a solid C stand as it weighs a few kgs along with a softbox. Two little annoyance that I have notice but not enough to give it a four star. Firstly, the monolight has a habit of turning it's off sometimes. Unsure if this is a default setting and haven't figure out how to disable this feature yet. Second annoyance that I noticed is that if in Multi or HSS that after a photo, the settings can sometimes jump back to Manual. Again, unsure if this is a default setting that I can change.

Okay the positives. Very easy to use. You dial up the continous light power. It has Manual, HSS and Multi flash modes. Have snapped some good test photo at high shutter speeds.

PIXAPRO® LUMI 400 II 800Ws Twin Kit with Trigger (400/400) (GS400II)

Great Set, Highly Recommend
The kit arrived really quickly. The lights are of professional quality and were quite easy to setup.
The lights all slave to one trigger, and can be individually changed depending on which group you set them to.
They were really useful on a recent shoot I did.

amazon review

Having been a studio based owner photographer now retired I just do Passport and ID photos from home based studio. My last Elinchrom died I need a replacement Asap, I picked the Pixapro 400 arrived in 2-3 days after a couple of quick tests I am really pleased with the results of the finished prints and the quality and power of the Flash Head, easy to use quick to change settings with good visual display consistent outputs. It seems well made and comes with everything you need for an instant start.

Great product. Very happy with the quality.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

(5)   By: Peter W. | 6 December, 2016

Brilliant product - just as it should be.

I already have two 200Ws Pixapro Lumi studio Flash heads which I am very happy with, but decided to get the more powerful 400Ws version as my main light so that there is plenty of power when using soft boxes with diffusers and other light modifiers. I decided to use this same UK based seller again because of their fast delivery service, UK backup and warranty and so I could be certain that it would be designed for UK voltage and fitted with UK 3 pin plug and power cable.
This light has all the features that I consider to be important: Flash brightness as claimed and verified using my light meter, wireless USB port for optional wireless control , 6 stop range, internal cooling fan, auto power dump, reflector supplied, glass dome lamp protector supplied, auto memory, LED power display.
I already have a wireless transmitter and spare receiver for use with this light and everything works as it should do. I like being able to switch off modelling lights remotely rather than using the manual switch on the back of the head to avoid shaking a hot modelling bulb and reducing its life span.
So everything is up and go for my next shoot in two days time

Very impressive kit!

I bought this kit at the photography show after being able to try it out. I am seriously impressed with the quality of everything. The carrying case has wheels and is a bonus. Everything fits in the case including the stands and softboxes. Light heads have metal casing.Took everything out of the case, put together, plugged in triggers and transmitter and it worked perfectly first time. Very little delay between shots. I hardly noticed any to be honest. Not the lightest weight kit and I wouldn't recommend it if you aim to use public transport. .. but if it's in the car and off it's perfect. The softboxes are great quality and quite large at 60 x 90 cm. Not the easiest things to put up but it gets easier once you've done it a couple of times. I may get easy assemble softboxes in the future if I travel with it much. This kit has a 2 year warranty as well. Personally I'm delighted.

Questions & Answers


The flash power is stored in capacitors inside the flash head and are not produced by the flash tube itself, so using a using a flash tube with a lower wattage capacity could result in blowing the flash tube blowing and cause damage to your flash head.

If you would like to reduce the power of your flash even further, there are a few things that you can do:

  • You could move your lights further back from your subject (doubling the distance of your light will reduce your light’s exposure by approximately two stops).
  • You can add extra diffusion to your modifier (e.g. diffusion material from a softbox, or the diffuser inside a 5in1 reflector etc.).
  • You can use Neutral-Density (or ND) gel filter on your modifier which you can purchase from most theatre supply stockists. (Please note: do not place ND Gel too close to the modelling bulb as it could prove to be a fire hazzard).
  • You could use an ND filter on your camera’s lens to reduce the amount of light entering your lens.

Any of the above techniques, by themselves or in combination will enable you to further reduce the light output from your lights.


This product is provided with an UK 3-Pin Power Cable, if you require an EU cable please notify us when placing your order.

So long as all of your lights are set to the same channel, they should all fire regardless of what group they are set to. The groups are basically just for controlling the individual lights. If you need to have it so that only certain flashes fire, all you need to do is set the lights that you don’t need to the “OFF” setting from the trigger (represented by “OF” on the LCD display on the trigger, and on the Digital Display on the flash head).

For Example, if you set your key light to group 1, your side lights are set to group 2 and your hair light is set to group 3, then you decide that you don’t want your hair light to fire on this shot, all you need to do is simply turn the dial on your trigger to group three, and set that light to off (which is shown on the digital display on your trigger and light as “OF”), and then it won’t fire… Similarly if you didn’t want your key light to fire, then you’d just turn the dial to group 1 and set the key light to off, then your key light won’t fire anymore and so on and so forth.


While the screen at the back of your camera will give you a fair idea of how your photograph is going to look, it doesn’t give you an accurate representation of your exposure as the screen on the back of your camera isn’t calibrated. If need to see a more accurate representation of your photograph as you shoot, it is possible to connect most DSLR cameras to your computer which will give you a more accurate representation of your exposure (tethering to a computer with a calibrated screen is recommended).

In order to do this, you will need software that supports “Tethered Capture” (such as Adobe Lightroom or Apple Aperture etc.) and also some way of connecting your camera to your computer (usually via a USB cable).

Please NOTE: Not all cameras support Tethered Capture, and not all software that supports tethered capture supports all cameras. Check with the manufacturers beforehand.


With our Pro AC Triggers, you have the ability to remotely control the Power Output of all of our flashes individually, or simultaneously in up to 16 different groups. This saves you from having to go up to each and every light individually to change the power of each light. It is also great for lights that are on a boom, removing the need to climb a ladder or to lower your boom to change the settings. You can also switch modelling lamps on and off with our triggers.

NOTE: Only compatible with PIXAPRO Studio Strobes and Portable Flashes.


The Lumi heads all feature an intelligent slave mode (slave mode 2) which allows them to be triggered with a TTL speedlite or your Camera's pop-up flash. However your camera’s pop-up flash or speedlite can only be used to optically trigger the Lumi flashes.
