PLEASE NOTE: This video is not full a representation of what is included in this listing as some items are used for demonstration purposes only. Please see the “Specifications” tab for information on what this listing includes.

The PIXAPRO STORM 400 is a High-Speed Studio Flash that uses Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology to achieve extremely short flash durations, as well as ultra-fast recycle times, which allows you to capture motion such as dancing, jumping and even water splashes with ease.

The IGBT Technology used in the STORM 400, allows it to behave in a similar manor to most speedlites, where the flash durations become progressively shorter and shorter, as the flash power is decreased. The PIXAPRO® STORM 400 can achieve flash durations in excess of 1/5000 second. The IGBT technology also allows for super-fast recycling times. At full, power, the recycle times are similar to that of a regular flash head of its type at 1.2 seconds. As you start to reduce the power however, the recycle-times become faster and faster, with recycle times as fast as 0.05 seconds, which is fast enough to keep up with the Multi-Bust mode on the vast majority of DSLR cameras currently on the market. This feature allows you to capture a series of images in quick succession, giving you a higher chance of capturing the perfect shot. Great capturing subjects in motion, such as Dancers, Athletes and Martial Artists etc.

The PIXAPRO® STORM 400 features a built-in wireless control port, which allows it to be used in conjunction with the optional PIXAPRO® 16 Channel AC Trigger set. This allows you to control your flash heads remotely, removing the need to go up and individually adjust each and every light in your set up, saving you precious time. It also features an intelligent slave cell that can be set to ignore a Pre-Flash allowing it to be used in conjunction with your TTL flashes with no problems, opening up a whole new world of lighting possibilities.

The PIXAPRO STORM 400 uses an S-Type accessory mount, making it compatible with a wide range of accessories and modifiers. This compact and lightweight flash is perfect for people who shoot weddings, portraits, fashion, and for advertising. It is especially good for shooting children.

Questions & Answers

Answer:

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.

Answer:

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.

Answer:

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.

Answer:

The Pixapro Storm 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 Pixapro Storm flashes.
